I am a pastor, and I am on call 24-7-365. When I travel I am completely detached from responsibility. Several reasons for loving it but, I think that is number 1.

For me, it started as a way to spend quality time with my children and wife. Noticing how quickly they were growing up scared me/us.

With the passing of my father, I now have new perspective on what treasures our memories are. I'm trying to give as many to my children as I can. That is also why we started the YouTube channel in my signature.

After being tethered to a pager(and a pocket full of change) then a cell phone for 46 years which I carried even on vacation, retirement and the RV means freedom. Still refuse to carry a cell after 2yrs and despite DW's threats and love the feeling of being on the road(foot loose and fancy free)

Freedom to get away and go wherever you want is a great reason to RV. Nowadays, with the advancements in solar technologies, you have even more freedom to get away from it all.

Iíve also experienced the freedom of touring on a motorcycle. Travelling to distant places and being ďinĒ your surroundings - feeling the air, smelling the trees and the flowers on the roadside - rather than just travelling though in a big steel cage is a different kind of freedom. You canít get that experience hauling your motorcycle in a toy hauler, but I guess thereís something to be said for having your own bed to sleep in at the end of the day - and that bed isnít in a tent!

We live in "small town America." You know, everyone knows everyone. We moved from Houston years ago when we started our family. When we lived in Houston and tuned into the local news there was a murder almost every day, plus other crime. We loved the city over all, but it just wasn't something, us personally, wanted our kids to see everyday.

We love living here but knew our kids needed to experience as much as we could show them. By the time they went to college they'd been to almost every state in America. They experienced almost every major art museum across the country plus so much more in cities and rural American on different levels. It was/is great.

Our son is starting medical school this year and our daughter is finishing nursing school, shameless plug. They got to see/experience every thing great and not-so-great in America.

Our kids still have the itch to go, but now their responsibilities have surpassed us being able to "pick up and go." They still go with us from time to time, especially our daughter. We miss those days and it's one of those things - if you miss it, you ain't gettin' it back.

There's still so much more to experience in America for us- that's why we do it. Go where the history happened, go where history is being made. We have friends that "travel" - Resorts, All Inclusives, Islands, Beaches, Vegas, etc. They almost always leave their kids at home. It's funny when we get asked what we do with our kids when we're on vacation...What??? They're not cats, but we bring our cats too.

For me it was this. Had a mild panic attack that my son was growing up so fast, and I wanted him to be able to have fond memories of family trips. We just returned from Table Rock Lake/Branson, and he is still grinning from ear to ear.
