Day 1: Hittin the Road with The Smiths

We Moved Ourselves! 

Check out all the shenanigans on our moving day. It was such a relief after it was all said and done. We celebrated at Trulucks with a delicious dinner and some bomb wine! 😋🍷

It was quite the task and so glad it’s over.

Word of advice: Don’t wait to the lat minute to pack, sell stuff, and get your stuff into storage.

Hope you guys enjoy the video!

Inside our Heartland Toy Hauler

Inside our Temporary Home {Part 1} – A Heartland Cyclone Toy Hauler!

It’s been a minute since I shared my RVing experiences. It’s been quite the whirlwind since we started. I’ve traveled a lot by myself due to my husband’s work schedule

We are still on our journey, well sort of, we set up shop in Pensacola, Florida for the Month of May at Oak Gove Camp Ground due to some work obligations. The official start of “Trippin With the Smiths” will start when we head out to Alaska in July! I can’t wait to experience all the beauty along the way to Alaska.

I’m actually in Michigan spending time with Mom and thank you all for the prayers and love. She is doing so much better!

So, in today’s video, you will get a glimpse of the inside of our 5th Wheel Toy Hauler. There will be two or 3 more parts. This first video we are getting ready to move everything from the Toy Hauler to our Cedar Creek Custom 5th Wheel.

Hope you enjoy the video! Let me know if you have any questions about Full-Time RV living!

We are actually Trippin! We hit the road Saturday to visit some friends and Fam.

First stop is South Carolina (we are here now), then we are off to North Carolina. Ohio and Michigan, and then back to Pensacola, FL for a brief stint. For the rest of the summer will be in Alaska. We are heading to Alaska mid-July.

We almost had a catastrophe!
