Stop Full Time Travel?

 It is amazing to look back over the last six years and think about all the decision made around a dinner table.

We love to sit down and discuss the past and all of our adventures.

We love to sit around and discuss the blessings of today.

And we also love to sit around the table and share our hopes, dreams, and thoughts of the future.

Lately, it seems that most of the conversation leans towards if we should settle down or not.  What should we do?

  • Keep traveling
  • Buy a home base and travel part time
  • Buy a home and sell the camper
It is a life changing decision.  The decision to travel full time has changed us all to our core.  Now, we are at another turning point.  "Do we stay or do we go?"  That is the question.

Do we stay in our present lifestyle or do we go back to the sticks and bricks.  Honestly, I don't know the answer to that. 

I have a feeling though, that we will be on the road again soon.

For how long, I do not know.

Newest Contributor to The Lemonade Digest Online Magazine Just 12 Years Old!

I would like to introduce you to our newest magazine contributor, Naomi Smith.  

She is my third child of six great kids.  Hanna and Cody, my oldest two have kept blogs and websites about out trip around the country since 2007.  They both have been published online, in magazines, school textbooks, and newspapers. Hanna continues to write for newspapers, online magazines, and is finishing her first book.

Cody is still a contributor to our online magazine, when he can find the time.  With his new job working for Missouri Dept of Conservation and finishing up his first year of bible school, it is challenging to get much else done.

But now, Naomi has joined the crew and her younger brother Gabriel will even begin to write some.

Be sure to check out her articles at the following link and leave comments there or on facebook at
