Sold The House, YAHOO!!!!

Hello once again and with great news!!

We have sold the stix and bricks on the 30th of October. In this day and age it was pretty obvious that we didn't get what we wanted but it sold and that's what matters the most.

Now Sherry and I will be planning our final yard sale and moving items to the other kids in the family.

Our current plans are to stay near by through the holidays. Our target date to move out is around the middle of December to a RV park close to the kids. We do have a couple of feelers out about jobs that are also close by to us so things seem to be looking up.

We are very excited and can't wait to hook up and move on down the road. We will keep you updated.

Have a good one and be safe.

Getting Ready to Get Started

Hello and Welcome to The Lambros Travels.

We are Nick, Sherry and Brianne Lambros, aka Toots2Go on Workampers Forum. We had this idea of full timing for many years now. Well with the economy as it is I lost my job back in November of 2008. Wondering what to do next I applied for unemployment and we started to head to the office to apply for food stamps when we were in a car accident and totalled our S-10 Blazer truck.

We started to look for another vehicle when we came across this fifth wheel 31 foot trailer. Sherry and I started to think about the odds of going full timing a little earlier than we planned. After the holidays were over we purchased the trailer and truck as a package deal.

We have been downsizing ever since and we are just waiting on the sale of the house. We have outfitted the 5ver to our liking and will be packing it all up in the very near future. Needless to say there were some repairs to the 5ver but that was no problem, two circuit boards one for the heater and one for the fridge, and one toilet gasket. I guess that is about average.

Brianne is our youngest child. She was blessed to us in 2002 not only as a surprise but also 3 months premature. She weighed 1 lbs., 8oz. when she was born. She was in the hospital for 3 months and Sherry never missed a day visiting her, 99 days straight. Overall with her troubles in her earlier years she is doing very well now. We have decided to home school her and have started her in the first grade this year. She really likes the idea of homeschooling and does quite well at it. She loves to help out and the only child I know that likes to do the dishes. Uhmm, "built in dishwasher??"

Thanks for looking in and I hope to have more in the near future with pictures.
