The Nickersons: Corey, Jessie, Lily, and Leila, sold their home in 2017 and moved into a travel trailer full-time. After going on an epic 3-week family road trip (covering over 6,000 miles!), Corey, a veteran and photographer, and Jessie, who used to run a spray-tan business out of their home, decided their family needed a change. Instead of saying “We will travel more someday”, they made their someday happen.
Now, they spend their days traveling, exploring the country, and connecting with people on the road through their brand Finding Our Someday. They want to show the world that their “someday” is possible right now.

Homeschooling on the road
The Nickersons were used to homeschooling before they became full-time RVers, but have seen so many more opportunities for their girls with homeschooling now that they are traveling full-time. Subjects from textbooks come to life when you get to experience history where it happened and see science in nature. The girls also get to experience volunteering on the road and visiting National Parks around the country.
Advice from Finding Our Someday:
Don’t rush into an RV purchase and don’t hesitate to ask questions. See as many RVs as possible to get exposure to various models. You might find that a model you’ve never thought of before will be just what you need. Make sure you are comfortable with the size of RV you are planning to buy. If it’s too big, you may not take it anywhere. Also, pay attention to the weight of your rig and get the right tow mirrors for your truck!
