New Book Covers the Pros and Cons of Full-time RVing with Children - Passport America Member Spotlight

San Diego, California (Barefoot Running Press, May 13th, 2014) - Want your kids to experience the freedom of the open road? Jason Robillard, author of several popular running books, and his wife Shelly and their three young children have been living in an RV for three years while they travel the country seeking new adventures. “Must Have Been Another Earthquake, Kids” covers their experiences along with an honest discussion about the pros and cons of full-timing with small children.

Jason tackles all topics, from long, boring drives through the Nevada desert to dealing with black water tanks to managing “sexy time” in a home that transmits the tiniest movements. This book is a necessary resource to any family considering this unorthodox lifestyle.

When planning to hit the road, Jason was dismayed that most of the resources seemed overly positive. “If it were this good, why doesn't everyone do it?” he reasoned. It only took a few weeks to understand: Those resources didn't tell the whole story. Over the next three years, the couple ironed out the difficulties to create a truly awesome experience.

In “Must Have Been Another Earthquake, Kids”, Jason touches on topics unique to parents, both good and bad. He offers practical advice that will help others plan similar journeys. He also discusses the trails and tribulations of their own adventure, often with humorous results.

"This is the best book on RV Living that I've read. Jason makes no effort to hype up or justify this lifestyle. He is objective and brutally honest about every single pro and con. If you’re a curious parent who wants to give your children a healthy worldview, you’ll appreciate Jason’s insights. If you’re seriously thinking of taking your family on the road, you’ll pour over Jason’s detailed logistical tips. Well done!"
