Life was good, but we knew there was more. More than keeping up with the Jones’s and the daily grind. We wanted a life of adventure and memories.

After the birth of our daughter in 2014, she was the spark that ignited that dream into reality. As parents, we wanted more time as a family and the idea to downsize was born as well. As we made the decision to sell the house, we came across a video of the idea of putting our tiny home on wheels and traveling. It was the perfect solution for our desire of an epic journey and family time.

After a year of preparation, we sold most of our stuff, moved into an RV and hit the open road in 2015. Because video was such an inspiration for our own journey, we started a YouTube channel called “Less Junk, More Journey”. Our channel shows the ups and downs of RVing and paves the way for others to trade junk for journey.

With almost 6 years of Full-time RV Living under our belt, we couldn’t be more free! We turned our Youtube channel into a growing travel brand and our journey keeps us moving ahead. Keeping up with the Jones’s is now a thing of the past. We now live a life of Less Junk and More Journey!

We are the Axness family; Nate, Christian, Ella, and Andersen. Five years ago, we sold everything, quit our nine-to-fives, started working for ourselves, and began traveling full-time in our RV.

Our goal in sharing our story with you, is to encourage you in your pursuit of long-term family travel.

We have been so positively impacted by nomadic life and believe that travel has not only brought us closer together as a family, but also made us better citizens in our ever changing community. We look forward to speaking life into your dreams of travel, helping you navigate the difficulties that travel can inevitably bring, and inspire you to embrace the RV lifestyle. You can catch us on Youtube where we post every Sunday!

Gary & Nicole Kennedy

Hi there! We’re the Kennedys….Gary, Nicole, Amali (11), Abbi (9), JR (6), Gavin (3) and Avail (4months). In pursuit of a more intentional and intimate relationship in our marriage and family, we went on a three month adventure across the US in our 30ft Travel Trailer along with our enormous boxers and about 1/3 of our stuff. Welllll after three months, we kind of got hooked on travelling and after much (like a whole whole lot of) debate decided to go all in! After 12 months on the road….We sold our house and decided to travel full time in our trailer! Which pretty much means we traded our house on land for a house on wheels. 😂 And with that the world became our back yard!

Here’s what we’re looking to gain from what we’re doing….Hearts that are radically pursuant of what’s most important….Gods heart for our lives together!

We absolutely love Jesus and hope to share how good He’s been to us in our marriage, parenting and daily doings! We hope you’ll come along with us to experience life in high definition by learning to let go of the distractions and grabbing hold of what’s important!

We wanted to wake up to live a life that We love, every. single. day. But We were FAR from doing that. We had “responsibilities”, trying to live up to the “American Dream”. We had the big house, nice cars, successful small business, and a large property in Florida. But we weren’t truly happy.

Being Fulltime was always a “bucket list” dream that you never think is going to be possible. Something that you wish with all your heart that you could do, but know it probably won’t happen until (or if) you retire.

We had just returned from a camping trip, unloading our stuff from the RV to our house and knew in our heart, there was more to life than the 9-5 rat race every day. It was in that moment that we decided to sell the big house, downsize all of our things, remodel a bus, hit the road with our 3 kids and 4 dogs, and after over a year now, we’ve never looked back.

We do have one regret though…not doing it sooner ❤️

Ben & Michelle

Ben and Michelle travel with their two kids, Elijah (13) and Lacie (11). They homeschool most days, except when they are tired, then they “unschool” or when the weather is nice, they “outschool” or when it’s raining they “skipschool”. Basically, we are always learning and enjoying life at the same time!

So why are we speakers for this event? No one knows..but we do travel quite a bit! One thing I can tell is that we’ve learned a lot in the past 4 years of fulltime travel and we haven’t given up for more than 24 hours at a time. So we are still going!

We’re all about doing things intentionally and not letting life, society, politicians or our old habits dictate our plan. We are living life on purpose and we look forward to helping you do the same!

Wadell & Alicia Simon are the parents of 7 children (5 boys and 2 girls; ages 28 – 2). Married for 15 years, both had a love for travel and adventure but they were too busy with work, ministry and kid’s homework & activities to go on any real vacations. After several years of praying for guidance and researching full-time travel, they took the leap to become a full-time traveling family. Within 30 days, they’d purchased and renovated their first RV, emptied their house, packed up and headed out. They’ve been through 10 states and spent 6 months in the beautiful state of Florida.

Nicole & Dustin

In September of 2017, Nicole hit the road with her husband Dustin and three kids for an eight month trip to explore the United States. They grew to love the lifestyle so much that eight months turned into three and a half years of travel with no end in sight. The sights were amazing but it was the people they met that made their adventure so special.

Their love for the community is so deep that they joined the leadership of Fulltime Families in 2019 and become sole owners in 2020. Connecting people is a passion.

Fun fact: When we were thinking about what our IG handle should be, we read in a blog that you should name yourself after something you are known for. Our first few months in our rv was spent in Arizona among thousands of retired snowbirds. There were not that many fulltime families around if any at some parks. Well, during our time there, we kept hearing as we walked around the park, “oh, you’re that cute little rv family”, from the retired grand & great grandmothers. Lol. So thats the story of our silly name.

We have been living and traveling for the past 6 months in our self converted school bus, also known as a Skoolie. We thrive in bus life/tiny living on such a deep level. If you had asked us 10 years ago if this is how we saw our life we would have laughed and thought you were crazy. But today is a whole different story. We joke around that the bus life chose us. We felt the pull for a different lifestyle , this lifestyle, and we just went for it.

& So Many Other Amazing Speakers.
