The Trailer Diaries: How We Ran Away From Home

by Rhona Davies
     
 
When one member of a family quits her high-paying job, sells her house, buys an old motorhome and hits the road with two cats and a dog as travel companions, the rest of the family think she must be mad. But then, all having migrated to other lands at one time or another, they accept the fact that there seems to be a nomadic gene in the family, and others follow suit.

Overview

When one member of a family quits her high-paying job, sells her house, buys an old motorhome and hits the road with two cats and a dog as travel companions, the rest of the family think she must be mad. But then, all having migrated to other lands at one time or another, they accept the fact that there seems to be a nomadic gene in the family, and others follow suit.
Their travels take place in two countries ? Australia and North America - and the diaries are a record of the fascinating people and places they meet along the way ? the man with the solar-powered wheelbarrow; the lady towing her trailer to Las Vegas for a two week fling; ghost towns, and phone booths in the middle of the desert.
Most of all, the travellers come to realize that humans can survive very comfortably with far less than they think they need, and that ?home? is wherever you decide to make it.
