Modest girl swimsuits….

I receive a lot of compliments on our girls’ modest swimsuits. It’s not that they are extra special, or necessarily made of an adorable fabric, it’s that they are modest girl swimsuits.  There is something charming about seeing little girls dressed like little girls…cute, feminine, and modest. But mostly modest. Why is it fashionable for […]

USS Lexington & multi-generational travel!

We love being Winter Texans! We have been doing it long enough that we have favorite haunts that we take the kids to, and favorite areas that we like to visit every single year. This year we are getting to delve a bit into new territory, and rediscover some of these favorite places, like the USS […]

Big Time RV reality show-the Travel Channel…

Big Time RV… Earlier this year, we were featured in an episode of Big Time RV that aired on the Travel Channel.  We really enjoyed filming the footage last year, and it was fun to finally see the finished product!  We ended up being able to watch it, when it was first aired, at an […]

Introducing the Witte Museum (ASTC), San Antonio, TX…

One of the things that we love about traveling is all the opportunities that it gives us to learn about our country and its history!  One of the ways that we do that is to visit museums throughout the country, especially museums that focus on local history. The Witte Museum in downtown San Antonio, TX is […]

Vermilionville; learning living history in the heart of Lafayette, Louisiana

Rvers don’t homeschool, they roadschool.  And by definition, ROADschooling means you have to hit the road! (ok, there isn’t really a REAL definition of roadschooling. 😉 )  We LOVE living history sites, so we are always on the lookout for them while we are traveling.  A favorite of ours is located in Lafayette, Louisiana; Vermilionville is […]

Shopping for a rig & Big Time RV!

WooHoo!Some time ago, The Tribe traveled to Colorado to search for a new RV, and share our fun shopping for a new rv (Dana LOVES rv shopping! lol.)!  You can watch our time on the lot, and in the area, by tuning in to The Travel Channel tonight at 9:30 eastern! Big Time RV starts […]

NOLA – Audubon Insectarium & Butterfly Garden!

The Tribe hasn’t shared where we’ve been or what we are doing in awhile!  That doesn’t mean that things haven’t been happening, it’s just that after being on the road for over 7 years, we sometimes want a break from sharing! lol.  But, we’re back, ready to show you some of the fun places that […]

The Ticknor Tribe on 60 Minutes Australia…

Back in March of this year, The Ticknor Tribe pulled out of Shreveport, LA, and took a short break from our flood cleanup volunteering there, to spend a few days, in Dallas, with a film crew from Australia.  The producer was incredible to work with, and the crew was great!  We all enjoyed our time (and because they […]

Crossroads RV Quality: Why we bought an Elevation, why we still have it, and why you don’t want one!

No, we don’t have a mid-bunk 5er. Yet.  Yes, we still have our 2015 CrossRoads Elevation toy hauler.  This is the story of why we bought it, what we went through with it, our experience with Crossroads rv quality, why we still have it, and why you do NOT want one (or any CrossRoads product).  😉 (as well as […]

Lilla Rose hair clips – the ultimate traveler’s hair products!

We have 5 daughters.  So years ago, when I came across a blog post about unique and beautiful hairclips that promised to hold their hair, ease my time spent styling, and were lightweight and durable, I ordered some sight unseen.  Since that time, we have been wearing the Lilla Rose hairclips non-stop!  About a year […]

How we support our travel lifestyle with family businesses…

The query that we field the most has to do with how we support our traveling lifestyle.  RVs are not cheap – to purchase, to maintain, to drive (7 mpg thankyouverymuch) – we have a fam of 10 to buy groceries and clothing for, and then include all the other incidentals that come with raising a […]

Using our RV lifestyle to enable disaster relief volunteering

There are a lot of reasons that we love our fulltime RV lifestyle, and the flexibility and opportunity it gives us are two of the main ones.  One opportunity that our flexible RV life has given us, is the chance to do volunteer work!  And some of our favorite work is disaster relief volunteering.  If […]

Oxygenics shower head mod… installing the Fury RV

This has to be our easiest and fastest mod ever, but it is also one of my favorites!!!  We had a regular Oxygenics shower head in our last rv, and while we had installed it, it had been years ago, and we had since forgotten how awful stock rv shower heads tend to be!  In […]
