About Us

Summer 2007 - While standing outside their camper, on the shores of Table Rock Lake, in Missouri, Shae Smith said to his wife, "I think I could do this full time."  She agreed with that vision and that was the beginning of how the Smiths sold or gave away most of what they owned and headed out on the open road.  With a desire to make a difference in this wonderful nation, they have tried to make volunteering and helping others a lifestyle, not just a two week adventure.  Instilling character and a love for God and people are priorities to them.
