Family Traveling Full Time to Every State Capitol

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are a family on a grand adventure to see every state in America. Since we home school our kids Miles, Journey and Trip, we love educational sites. From National Parks to museums we explore any place that we can learn something. Our favorite thing though is visiting the state capitol buildings. They are free, educational and you can learn so much about the local history and art! Everyone tells us our kids are super well behaved and I think that comes from always home schooling them, even before our adventure. Warning, you will fall in love with them and no you can't keep them when we leave : ) though they might want to write you letters if you ask them to. One of the things we do as we travel around is pick up litter, so we always leave a camp nicer than we found it!

Skills & Expertise to Share

Way too many to list! I went to school for graphic design, but have done many things since. I find work all over America by not being afraid to roll my sleeves up and jump in. I have helped install solar panels, painted the interiors of multiple houses, taken professional pictures for campgrounds, designed websites for businesses, picked up trash for a National Park, and more! I fix our travel trailer or vehicle when it breaks. Both my wife and I are excellent cooks (we used to own a restaurant). My wife, Sarah, is a professional writer and editor. She went to school for early childhood education and child psychology. Our kids have numerous skills as well. Ok I think that is plenty of bragging and almost feel as though I am applying for a job.

No, but we do enjoy visiting with other peoples pets.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Lone Pine Mountains in California, The Badlands in South Dakota, The Black Hills in SD, A great spot in Maryland, and I love Work Docking at places all over America.

statebystate's Hometown

We are originally from Dayton, NV and still call it home. We travel full time though. It was supposed to be a year long adventure, but we love it so much we are in our third year of traveling!

Amazing Family

We had a great experience hosting them. Learned a great deal from their very educated children. Would happily host again.

Sweet Friendly Family!

So glad they stopped here! They settled in quickly and we hardly knew they were here. We were glad they accepted our offer to use the yard, and we hope they had fun exploring our field and our neighborhood. Anytime they want to stay again, they'll be quite welcome!
