DELTONA — Britt Reints, blogger, freelance travel writer and mother of two had no inkling how her life would change when she tweeted something about how it would be cool to be on the road all the time.

Someone responded that at least two families were already doing just that: one traveling around Europe and Asia and another bicycling from Alaska to Argentina.

“It’s easier once you know it’s possible,” she said.

So she, her husband, Jared, 11-year-old son Devin and 6-year-old daughter Emma set out to see if it was possible to sell their home and most of their stuff, scrape together some money and take off in an RV trailer hooked to a Chevy TrailBlazer.

On Tuesday, they cleaned out the last of the stuff from a four-bedroom house.

Jared said he had a hard time parting with his motorcycle and old T-shirts. Britt didn’t relish selling her shoes and purses at her three garage sales. And the kids hated parting with the family cat, who they took to a shelter on Tuesday.

They headed out June 1st for a yearlong RV trip and all of the Reints are looking forward to their adventure in their own ways.

The Reints estimate it will cost them about $46,000 to make the rounds of the Continental 48 in a year’s time. They’ve saved about half that amount and are hoping to make up the rest with Britt’s freelance work.
