2007 Update:
Through this experience, Cricket and I improved our friendship but it could not resolve some marital issues. Early in 2007, we went our separate ways to begin our own new adventures.

She has settled in a house back in Orlando with the boys who have returned to private school. I still call Orlando home, but have taken on a career as an over-the-road truck driver. The motorhome spends most of the time in storage until I return home once a month for my time off.

We don't regret our decision to make the RV trip. We would definitely recommend it to everyone. It was a wonderful experience. We met lots of great people everywhere. While it may not fix everything, it will definitely improve your family life and/or marriage.

Our divorce was finalized in December of 2007.

An introduction to Part 1 of this RV Adventure. The archived entries below are listed in chronological order from bottom to top. If this is your first visit, I suggest that after you read the brief introduction, you start from the bottom and work your way up.

This is our blog, journal, whatever you may want to call it of an 11 month journey. We are the Gregorich Family; Mark, Cricket, Adam, Lucas, and our 4-legged friend Jake. This adventure began in 2002 when we decided to remove our two sons from private school and began homeschooling. However, unlike most homeschool families, I became the homeschool dad while mom still worked outside the home.

The next chapter began in the summer of 2005, we began the second stage in our family adventure: homeschooling on the road in an RV, or as some call it "roadschooling". We took delivery of our new National RV Sea Breeze LX 36' Motorhome to be our new home on this road trip in July. Over the next four weeks we sold all our possessions, including the house!

In addition to their normal curriculum, our two sons received their history and geography homeschool lessons up close and personal. Starting from Orlando, we drove the RV straight through to Maine to see some family before winter hit. Then slowly make our way back down to Florida for the Holidays with my family. From there we then headed west to California. After that our family rving trip turned north up through Canada to Alaska and the Artic Circle. From there we ventured east across Canada to Edmondton before dropping back down into Montana. After a stop in Yellowstone for the sights and Denver for friends, we hurried once more to Maine before another return to Florida.

While RVing our way around, we traveled through 34 states, 5 provinces, visited 24 state capitals, lots of museums, historical sites, big cities and rural communities alike. Oh yes, RV is short for "recreational vehicle" so there were lots of campgrounds, amusement parks, roller coasters and other fun things along the way also!

At the same time, we continued to work. My wife was a mortgage broker and I a website designer. Therefore we both managed to conduct our businesses from anywhere with the use of cell phones, emails, and satellite internet connections. So if you're tired of going to the office everyday, see if you can make a few changes. Maybe you can setup a mobile office in a motorhome and travel the country as well.

So I invite you to follow along as we RV homeschooled in the American Adventure. Through this website, you can be a virtual passenger with us as I reported our stories and photos along the way. You can even talk to me through the message boards.

Heading your way,
