EER 018: The Boyinks and full-time RV family travel

 RV family travel can be an amazing way to travel with kids. Just ask the Boyinks, an American family of four who left a traditional suburban life in 2010 to explore the USA full-time by RV. In this Epic Education Interview, I talk with Michael and Crissa Boyink, parents to Harrison (18y/o) and Miranda (16y/o) about what full-time RV family travel is like while working and homeschooling two teens.
