We’re the Schaber Family!
Lou: Husband & Father
Tricia: Wife & Mother
Nevaeh: Daughter & Inspiration
Who are we, and what are we like? Can it even be captured in a few paragraphs? Probably not. Instead, let me sum up . . .
We are a family looking to unplug from the conventional, while seeking new and unusual adventures along the way.
We’re guided by faith, values, and coffee.
Tricia and I married in 2001, and it has been a grand adventure ever since . . . with a miracle milestone being the birth of our daughter in 2008.
Up to this point we’ve lived a fairly typical American lifestyle: church involvement, some college, jobs, bought home, more church, different jobs, sold home, church, built home, new jobs, more college, bla bla bla.
The funny thing is that none of the above really matters in the long run. I mean, we’ve spent our lives up to this point following a typical path. It hasn’t been bad. In fact, it has been an incredible journey that has brought us to this current decision.
Our past experiences and struggles have shaped us, and molded our family into what it is today. It is through the previous chapters of our lives that we can now trust that this next chapter is the right one.
So I think we are done with the typical path, ready to embark on a new adventure as a family.
My beautiful wife tends more towards wanderlust, always looking forward to the next destination and the adventures it brings. Not that she is discontent with our current life, she just really enjoys the freedom that change brings.
We are an active family that enjoys the outdoors, and have relished all our vacations and travels.
With this in mind, Tricia has finally convinced me that living and traveling full-time, in an RV, is actually a good idea. So that is exactly what we are doing (as of June 12th, 2017).
We’ve wrapped up our responsibilities and obligations in Florida, and embarking on a crazy new adventure!
Along the way we’ll be:
- Continuing to ditch more material possessions
- Taking in more views from our windows
- Serving in ministry in a unique capacity
- Doing more stuff outdoors
- Enjoying life
- Loving one another
It’s going to be an uncommon adventure of epic proportions.
