Living a Stout Life
Ken and April say that “living a stout life” means something different for everyone. For them, it means living with intention and looking for fulfillment in life. It’s more than just beer (though beer is an important part of their philosophy!). For Sam, it means being surrounded by community and enjoying life on a daily basis. For you, it could mean something else entirely. That’s what Ken and April love about the idea of living a stout life. It’s the freedom to live the life you want. Even their RV name is an acronym for their philosophy. Raif stands for Real Adventures in Freedom. What does living a stout life mean for you?

My wife and i want to get an RV and start living out of it. We home school our son so he will be able to continue school year around. What we want to do is live on a lot for 1-6 weeks at a time and then move on to the next lot. All over the country. Is this possible to do, and if so where are all the places we can do this at? Is there a website we can look at to get an idea of where these parks are? Would you happen to have or know someone who has a list of all the places we can go? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
