Phil and Amanda North did have a family adventure planned for after retirement. In fact, they had spent years planning and preparing for that family adventure, and when the time was right, they were ready to begin.

CAMPING IN NEW ZEALAND: ADVENTURE RE-IMAGINED

The North’s dream was to sail the oceans together. They had already bought a boat, planned their itinerary and rented out their house when the call came. The boat they bought had unforeseen damage — it would cost too much to repair. Their family adventure plans were shattered, so they did what anyone would do: they started on a new adventure. Three years later they’re still traveling the world. Listen in as we talk about house sitting, homeschooling, making friends on the road and many other aspects of their exceptional family adventure.
