Hey! We’re Antwon & Sharee Collier- a husband and wife duo that decided to hit the road fulltime with our kids in 2013. We were stuck in a rut of monotonous life and really needed a change of scenery to get our spunk back. We were sick of living the Standard American Life- so we stopped. We were sick of seeing the same people, day in and day out- so we stopped. We were sick of taking vacations to have a chance to spend time together- so we stopped.
In the beginning, we did what everybody else did. Average Americans. We purchased a home, got married in Jamaica, and started a family. We purchased cars, went to school, and worked fulltime. After a few of life’s unexpected twists and turns- we found ourselves wondering… Is this it? Collectively, we made a huge decision to do something big. We came up with a 3 big ideas:
- Move to the beach
- Live in an RV fulltime
- Sail around the world…
We started with the easiest of the 3, by moving to St. Pete Beach. Our family had an amazing time, right up until the first Tropical Storm swept through. Antwon was almost swept into Tampa Bay on a ‘quick’ (3hr) trip to get bottled water, while driving home on the flooded island streets. At this point we started planning how we would travel in an RV fulltime. We purchased, renovated and moved into our 1973 Winnebago Brave.
For the past 2 ½ years we’ve traveled fulltime with our children, both with and without the RV- and have enjoyed each and every moment. We changed everything about our lives that we needed to, to enable ourselves to enjoy our lives. We decided to homeschool our kids, which enables the whole family to travel and learn new things while we do so and Antwon & I workamp®, which allows us to earn an income on the road and keep all our expenses low.
Meet the Colliers- is a website I created to share our stories, information and inspiration with other families just like ours.
We don’t make any promises about keeping a daily travel journal, celebrating every holiday, or anything that makes the fun seem like work… Thanks for stopping by! We hope you enjoy!
