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.

  1. Greeting Lambros! I believe we "talked" before on the workamp forum site and our circumstances are similar to yours. Are you guys on the road yet? Glad to see you have your blog up and running. I hope all is going well for you all and everything works to your advantage. Looking forward to reading about your adventures. We'll be testing our "built in dish washer" as soon as the automatic is left behind with the stix and bricks. That goes for me as well I'm sure!
