Welcome!

Welcome to “The 5 Towaways” – our little corner of the internet where the open road meets family fun! We’re a family of five with an insatiable thirst for adventure, a love for the great outdoors, and a passion for hitting the road in our trusty RV.

Our Travel and Adventure Story

It all started with a tent, and couple of HUGE storage containers. My wife had never been camping before, let alone slept outside. After much ado, I convinced her to take a trip! We borrowed a tent, and few essential, and took a trip to the other side of the state for a weekend camping adventure. Many many miles, and quite a few tents, ticks, and campers later we are now a family of 5 and we love to adventure as much as we can.

Why “The 5 Towaways”?

The name of our blog is a playful nod to our RV lifestyle. Just like a car being towed away, we’re always on the move, exploring new places and seeking out new experiences. But instead of being taken away unwillingly, we’re towing ourselves towards adventure, one mile at a time.

Our Mission

Through “The 5 Towaways”, we aim to inspire other families to break free from their comfort zones and discover the joys of traveling together. We believe that the world is the best classroom, and every journey is an opportunity to learn, grow, and bond as a family. Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a cross-country road trip, there’s a world of wonder waiting to be explored. We hope to inspire you to get out and get moving.

What You’ll Find Here

Our blog is a treasure trove of our family adventures, from the majestic national parks we’ve visited to the hidden gems we’ve stumbled upon along the way. We share tips for RV living, travel guides tailored for families, and heartwarming tales of our escapades. But more than that, we hope to show you that with a little courage and a lot of love, anything is possible.

We live at HOME! We aren’t full time RVer’s, and we do what other people do. We have cars, trucks, blenders, microwaves, and other home “stuff”. We may share that here as well as we feel like it is stuff that almost anyone can relate to and use.

I may also write about DIY projects (certainly my series on How to build a teardrop camper) will fit into that. I also enjoy woodworking, and will tinker with just about anything.

Join Us On Our Journey

We invite you to buckle up and come along for the ride. Whether you’re an avid traveler or just dreaming of hitting the open road, there’s a place for you here with The 5 Towaways. Let’s create memories, share stories, and inspire each other to live life to the fullest.

Thank you for being a part of our adventure. Here’s to many more miles, smiles, and unforgettable moments!
