#75: Becoming Ditchers: Jared & Stephanie Pechan


Length: 51:00  · Download

Show Notes

Before this I worked the typical job. I would leave at 7 in the morning and get home at 6 or 7 at night. I’d kiss the kids goodbye when they were waking up in the morning and help to put them to bed when I got home. I felt like we needed a change so that both of could actually see the kids while they are growing up.Jared Pechan

In this podcast we talk about:

  • Their plan to sail fulltime for 2-3 years with their family of five (kids ages 11, 10, and 8).
  • Stephanie teaching at the school her kids go to.
  • Not waiting for the kids to get older to find adventure
  • Living in a sheltered town being a reason to want to travel.
  • How sailboat camping led to this idea of a long term sailing as a family adventure.
  • Shopping for the perfect boat.
  • Buying a boat from a charter company rather than a private party.
  • Transitioning from public school to boatschooling.
  • Planning to meet other families out traveling.
  • Facebook “Worldschoolers” Group
  • Facebook “Kids4Sail” Group
  • Ditching Suburbia Where To Go Map

This episode of the Ditching Suburbia Podcast is sponsored by meori Folding Boxes. We love these boxes for suburbia-ditchers because they fold down when not in use. Then when you visit the farmer’s market, go on a long daytrip, or run the dingy to shore you can unfold the meori box and carry up to 65 pounds.

We kept our meori box even after downsizing to our campervan - see our full review of the meori folding box system.

#71: Downsizing Ditchers: Brandon Cave

Mike and Brandon Cave talk about their downsizing journeys from suburbia, to 5th wheel, to camper van living.

Length: 1:18:21  · Download

Show Notes

We want longer travel days, and more journey in our travel days. Right now we have a 37’  trailer behind a truck and travel days are mostly about getting from point A to point B. We’re always passing by things and saying man that would be cool to turn out there, or did you see that little cafe or historical marker. You can’t always get into those with that much rig. We want to be able to experience those things on travel days.Brandon Cave

MIke and Brandon talk about:

  • The Cave’s two years on the road.
  • How a side business became a primary income.
  • How a search for a bigger house turned into a search for an RV.
  • Their reasons for wanting a smaller RV.
  • Building vs. Buying a campervan.
  • How to build an RV when you currently live in one.
  • Sources for campervan inspiration.
