Road-Schooling: How to Homeschool from Your RV

This year has been a crazy one for sure! As many parents face this school year with uncertainty or even frustration, some families are embarking on a new journey (literally): combining homeschooling with the RV life. We like to call it road-schooling.

How Do You Homeschool?

That’s a huge question, and one that’s a little too difficult to answer in one blog post! However, each state varies in its guidelines for homeschooling, so it’s important to establish right away exactly what you intend to do.

If you plan to do virtual learning at home (or in your new or used RV), through your local school district, you can fairly simply stay enrolled and follow your school’s guidelines.

If you plan to fully disenroll your kids from the school system, you will need to do an internet search on “homeschooling in my state” for the guidelines that keep you in compliance.

You can homeschool using a package curriculum, online learning, or the curriculum your state’s schools recommend. The market for online classes has definitely increased exponentially this year, so if you feel nervous about tackling certain subjects, don’t worry! There are countless resources available. Since WiFi is available virtually everywhere, your kids can stay connected to their online classes easily.

Hit the Road and Learn Along the Way

True story: when I was 15, my mom made me take the ACT while on vacation. It was one of the worst days of my life! While that’s not an educational tactic I would recommend, the great thing about seeing the world around you as an educational environment is that learning is never limited. Road-schooling is a perfect way to learn about the ties between history, geography, science, social studies, and more.

For example, start with the National Parks. Whether you go to Yellowstone, the Badlands, the Grand Canyon, or dozens upon dozens of other federal parks, you’ll be immersed in the realization that history always connects to science and geography. Studying different habitats and the wildlife who live in them will be a rich experience of its own!

Other stops – such as San Francisco, Albuquerque, and Chicago, will give you opportunities to immerse yourself in rich cultural history. And the Midwest is filled with learning opportunities about the farmers who help run our nation’s agriculture.

Be Flexible with Your Time

When you think about it, there aren’t actually 8 straight hours of intense, focused learning packed into a school day. There is some instruction time, and some application time. However, the size of classrooms are one factor in drawing out the length of time both instruction and application take.

You might be surprised to discover that a child between kindergarten and third grade might complete a day’s worth of school in under an hour! Or that fourth through seventh graders could easily be done before lunch. This kind of flexibility allows you to hit the books early in the day and head out in the afternoon for sight seeing, exploring, and integrated learning with the world around you.

Travel gives people rich opportunities and experiences that they wouldn’t trade for anything. Many people who find themselves frustrated by a busy life end up regretting that they didn’t travel more. Why not give your kids the experience of a lifetime during this time when our world has flipped completely upside down? Don’t just read about the oceans, canyons, and forests. Go explore them!

When you give the gift of travel and opt to road-school in your RV, you offer rich education that will fill their memories for years to come. We’d love to help you pick out the perfect new or used RV for your road-schooling adventures, so contact us today.

Two Great Camp Recipes the Whole Family Will Love

One of my favorite camping recipes to enjoy is not only delicious and gets the day started right, but it also is cost effective. With tasty camp recipes like these, you can save yourself some money – no need to eat out and overspend your food budget! Here are two homerun camp recipes – one for breakfast and one for dinner. You might find them so filling that you could skip lunch entirely and just snack on granola bars and some fresh fruit!

Camp Recipes


Breakfast Hash

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz. bacon
  • 4 red potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper

You’ll also need:

  • Dutch oven
  • Spatula
  • Knife
  • Cutting board

Directions:

  • Dice bacon and fry in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Remove pieces as they begin to crisp; drain on paper towels.
  • While bacon is cooking, dice potatoes and onion. Once the last of the bacon is cooked, pour off most of the grease, reserving 3-4 tablespoons. Add potatoes and onion into the reserved bacon grease and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Keep the Dutch oven lidded while the onion and potatoes, removing only every once in awhile to stir to prevent sticking. Cook until tender.
  • Scrape potatoes and onions to the side, and crack eggs directly into the free space of the pan,  whisking and scraping with spatula to scramble.
  • Once the eggs are scrambled and cooked through, put all of the cooked bacon back into the pot.
  • Add cheddar cheese and stir to combine. Serve warm.
Camp Recipes


Once breakfast is cleaned up, you can get an immediate start (and finish!) on dinnertime faster than you can say “Get ready to leave for the day!” Wipe out the Dutch oven and throw in three ingredients – yes, only three ingredients! Set it on low heat and you’re good to go!

Savory Stew

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 pounds beef stew meat
  • 1 can Campbell’s Golden Mushroom soup
  • 1 can Campbell’s French Onion soup

You’ll also need:

  • Dutch oven or Crock Pot
  • Can opener

Directions:

  • Combine all three ingredients in a Dutch oven or Crock Pot, cover, and place in oven at 250* for 6 hours. (Low heat for 4-6 hours if using Crock Pot.)
  • Easy sides: a quick salad, grilled corn on the cob, or a side of mashed potatoes. You’ll discover this stew creates and cooks in its own gravy, so a side of potatoes or pasta is great to pair with it – easy pantry staples you’ll already have on hand!
Camp Recipes


Add these camp recipes to your list of camp meals while camping in your new or used RV, and we guarantee they’ll be family favorites!  Contact us if you have any questions about shopping for a new or used RV or scheduling some routine RV maintenance before you hit the road. Happy trails!
