In 2015, Trent and Siobhán Walker took their five boys on a trip to California, and they fell in love with traveling.
As a Christian pastor, Trent Walker said he and his family love “doing whatever we can to make the world better,” so they decided to take a trip to California. While there, they helped out an organization that gathers fruit and vegetables from farms and sends the products to families in need all over the world.
During that trip, the family caught the travel bug, but they couldn’t travel as much as they wanted because they had a mortgage on a house in Battle Creek, Michigan, that sat on a few acres.
“We felt like we needed to see things. We needed to be awakened to life and beauty and nature,” Walker told Insider. “My wife and I took a good, hard look at what we’re doing with our life, and we’re like we would be a bit freer if we didn’t have this mortgage.”
Walker decided to sell their house and buy an RV for their family to live in full-time.
