We used online tools like local Facebook garage sales pages and Craigslist to get rid of a lot of our larger items. And we spent a lot of time pricing everything… I think we overpriced a lot, too.

Well, Oregon is the last state that it’s against the law for a POV owner to pump their own gas. The guy at the pump knew I must have been a tourist when I jumped our my RV and tried to pump my gas. As we head North towards Portland, we made a brief stop in the Capital of Oregon Luckily for us it was Saturday and there was lots of large open parking on the main street in front of the Capital Building.
As we arrived and started to take our pictures, a wedding party and what looked to be a high school senior prom lined the steps of the Capital Building and started taken pictures. We kind of followed and jumped in when we could and took our pictures and moved on. Again I found this campground in my passport America book. The RV Park is kind of tucked inside a mountain town.

By Greg Gerber Editor, RV Daily Report It has been more than two and a half years and tens of thousands of miles since the Anderson children lived in a traditional home. For Elizabeth, 16; Ethan, 14; and Grace, 12, it should seem like a long time. But, to them, it feels like yesterday. To read that story, click here. Ethan enjoys RVing because of the new places he can visit and the experiences he can enjoy along the way.
But, he does admit it is sometimes difficult living in very close quarters with two adolescent girls. Roadschooling Elizabeth was enrolled in public school until she finished seventh grade. But, I have learned so many practical skills while on the road — things I know I will actually use for the rest of my life.
