Welcome To New Life On The Road. Here you can share our new adventure in life with the “Woody Family”. For those that are new, we are David and Lisa Wood. We have five boys and have decided that to bring our family closer we are hitting the road next year.
New Life On The Road Who We Are
A little bit of back ground information so you can see who we are!!! We are David and Lisa Wood and have been married for over 15 years. We have five amazing (loud) boys aged 16, 14, 11, 8, 5. For the last three years we have been on a journey looking for more out of life. A better way of living. A better way of experiencing life. We knew that we wanted a lifestyle that gave us time, gave us more money and freedom to live the life of our dreams.
Along the way we have made many mistakes, lost lots of money, but at the same time gained back so much more….more than we ever thought possible. We have met some amazing friends, and formed so wonderful relationships with like-minded people.
With our learning curve we discovered what we wanted for our family. We want the lifestyle that allows us to spend more time with the boys, and allows the boys to grow as a loving family unit.
How New Life On The Road Came About
Both of us had been talking about seeing Australia with the boys before they left home, and followed their dreams. This year in January 2010 we sold our home. It was a new beginning. While on one hand it was sad to see the family home sold, it was also a happy occasion. It meant that we could move our life forward in the direction that we have dreaming about with our New Life On The Road.
Then life got in the way again 🙂 So Lisa jumped the gun and decided to do some about achieving our goal….traveling in a bus around Australia.
In June Lisa jumped onto eBay and looked at a bus – placing a bid and then telling David afterwards. David was stunned, and then beyond amazed. He was then curious to see where the bus was located. Lisa never thought about that aspect. To read more about that story go here.
So David is fixing the bus up, and by Christmas this year we all hope to be on the road with New Life On The Road sharing the journey. This is a place where you can keep updated with how the “Woody Family” are all coping together, and to see all of our crazy fun times.
About Us Update!
I have been reading about our About Page and I thought it best I do an update!! I was wondering what would be the best way of doing this….should I create another page, or delete this page and start all over again, or just pop in more information…I have decided that this idea works!!! I am going to add More About Us on this page 🙂
Since we started this Blog Site in October 2010 so much has changed for our family….good things! Lets see if I can include as much information as possible!
Our Oldest son has moved out of home, and is now in the Defence Force. He is so grown up – he is training and is loving every minute of it! If you are new, you might like to read about he has New Beginning with his new career!
We are living in our Motorhome full-time! We moved up to Bundaberg at the beginning of February 2011 and stayed on a property to renovate the bus for about seven months. David has changed nearly everything in our bus…either replacing, rebuilding, changing or adding – he has given New Life to Rose Our Lifestyle Challenge Bus!
We moved from Bundaberg back down to the Sunshine Coast early September so that we could support our older son getting into the defence force…he got in sooner than we thought!
David returned to work, he needed a break from the Motorhome, from renovations, and needed to use his hands to build caravans once again!
New Life on the Road has continued to grow and has so many wonderful readers who we can connect with – Thank you so much!
We are heading down to Melbourne then to South Australia early next year – so wish it was sooner!
Our Story has been featured in Two Newspapers, we have been on two Radio Stations as a guest speaker, and we are doing product reviews. If you would like to read about what we have been doing, we now have a Press Page!
The Inside of the Motorhome looks gorgeous (thank you David!!), now we need the outside painted so that she looks as good on the outside as she does on the inside!
We are now writing guest blog posts for other blogs – and we are loving the great connections that we are finding!
We are homeschooling while we are travelling. If you would like to ask us any questions about Homeschoooling, then please ask below here!
We have more exciting news for New Life on the Road – to read more you need to sign up for our newsletter! (located to the right of this blog post)
The Last Photo of all of my boys together – so looking forward to having more photos when our son returns!
If You Believe You Will Succeed!
Looking forward to sharing the journey with you and your family.
