We are Rebecca and Sean Karlin. We have three children Shara age 14, Simon age 13, and Alexis age 4. Our epic rv journey begins in June of 2012, when we decided to rent a Class C motorhome and travel to Starved Rock State Park just southeast of Utica Illinois. Rebecca having taken numerous cross country road trips growing up in Southern California and Sean a Chicago area native knew this was going to be a fantastic time. So, with kids and our Old English Sheep Dog (Donald) in tow, we drove this huge rv 100 or so miles outside of Chicago. After having a fabulous time we decided that we were interested in one day owning our own. That dream became a reality just before the birth of our youngest in 2013. We went to an rv show because we had done some research on what floorplan we were looking for and knew this model was going to be there. The one thing we did not like about our rental was that you had to pack up everything to go somewhere and the size restrictions on the narrow roads. We figured that with a travel trailer we could unhitch and have full access to our tow vehicle. We decided to purchase a 2013 Kodiak 255BHSL. We liked this model because we needed something that was light enough to be towed by a full size suv and had sleeping accomodations for eight just in case one of the kids wants to bring a friend along. We have been happy with it ever since. Sean, after loosing his job in the family business after nineteen years and the family undergoing extreme financial hardship, Rebecca becoming diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis a few years back, packed up our belongings and we moved to Arizona. One day we hope to become full timers. We hope that you enjoy reading this blog as we try to figure out life's next great adventure for us.
