**Update** As of June 26, 2016, we are officially full-time RVers! We aren't 100% sure where we're headed, but we know it'll be fun! We have an InstaGram account: CoopersCompass and would love to hear from any of you and possibly meet up on the road!
Hi BDW members!! We're the Wilsons. Sirca is a retired but "now works harder than ever" stay at home dad, Leisa is a full time office manager and Cooper is our 9yr old mid-life surprise blessing! We have 8 other children as well (21yrs to 35yrs), who are all grown and gone. We also have 10 grandchildren!
It's taken us a year of planning, but we've sold nearly everything we own, purchased a 2016 FR3 30DS, sold both of our trucks and purchased a small Fiat500 to tow, and we are now scheduled to head out on June 25, 2016 to live on the road full time! We are all extremely excited!
Cooper is smart, precocious, comical and curious ... and when he started saying he wished he could visit Mount Rushmore or actually see the Liberty Bell ... we decided this just might be our opportunity to travel like we've always wanted! He just completed his first year of homeschooling, which was a prerequisite for this decision. We needed to make sure that it was something that would work for him before we made this major change, and thankfully, it was a fantastic school year! We think traveling and being able to experience things first hand now, instead of just through pictures and reading, will be amazing for all of us!
Not sure where we're headed first ... but we have a lot of ideas ... and we can't wait to get out there and meet as many of you as possible!
Safe travels to all!!
Sirca is a wonderful cook, loves to tinker on "old school" cars without all the modern computer stuff and likes to weld, Leisa crochets stuffed animals, hats, scarves and afghans and started selling on Etsy a few months back, and Cooper loves jokes/riddles, science, history and gives the best hugs!!
We've seen so many great pictures of places, we have no idea what will become our favorite!
