Paula Sounds like a wonderful plan for you and your boys and sometimes your DH! This forum was probably the most influential thing that allowed me to jump over my anxiety of "can I do this?" "Do other women do this alone and enjoy it?" Reading the postings was inspirational, encouraging and not to mention informative. I thought - if THEY can do it, I can do it. I honestly don't know if I would have "just done it" had I not stumbled onto this website. Go for it for all the reasons stated. It has been one of the best experiences of my life. Countless people have siad their camping experiences as children were one of their most treasured :) Marysdream Its all good!!!!!

Thanks for the encouragement!
Are there any other people here with children who go out alone?

don't travel on Sundays....nothing is open if you break down.
part of a well rounded education includes auto mechanics.....doesn't it? get those boys...and yourself....familiar with the basics of auto care and I'll bet you'll feel much more confident. getting my ducks in a row

My thoughts, exactly, on teaching the boys about auto care and mechanics. Gotta find me a good book! There is a monster RV book on all the systems. I haven't looked at it in depth but that would be a good start, I reckon.
Hadn't thought about not traveling on Sunday...sage advice!

Most of my "breakdowns" would have happened whether traveling or idle - like when my toilet leaked or my fridge quit - so I don't pay attn to not travelling on Sunday.
I actually, in many parts of the country, like travelling early on Sundays - not usually as crowded on the roads - except now in the summertime - there are places where Sunday travel will be rediculously crowded with the city dwellers headed home from their country weekend. All depends on where you are :)d
I don't travel with children - but many do - you'll be giving your kids an education that every child should have. Between seeing things that most only read about - and hopefully learning about nature and how to care for themselves and that watching tv isn't the only pasttime - your children will be far above better off! Good for you. Smiling is contagious - try it!

Not traveling on Sunday comes from Dad. He broke down once coming home late on a Sat afternoon. Everything was closed so they couldn't get parts. Tom Boland Ford in Hannibal Mo. took them in, gave them a level place to park, hooked them up to elec., and let them stay until they could get their MH repaired on Monday. Even loaned them a car so they could run around town to get groceries and stuff. (no charge) and helped them deal with the manufacturer for the warranty part of the work. reaffirms that there are good people out there all over the place! getting my ducks in a row

My first RV was a 1972 Chevy Mobilux Cruiser. (looked like a frito Lay truck without the picture of the chips) I drove that thing everywhere and had a great time with it. Had a lot of repairs but never had a problem getting parts or used parts. It sure beat a tent!!
