    "Six for the Road" - A TLC show about a full-timing family

    Hi all,

    Many of you already know about this and have discussed it elsewhere in the forum and on chat.

    For those who have not heard, the Loud family has taken to the road to full-time in their 5th wheel. They have 4 children ages 7-14 and are homeschooling them on the road as well.

    The first 2 of 4 in the 4-part mini-series has aired on TLC already. Catch the remaining episodes on TLC. See schedule below.

    You may also visit this link for Heartland In The News and click on the Today Show link there to see more and to view the Today Show /Al Roker interview with the family in front of their Heartland Cyclone.

    There will be 2 more episodes on Saturday, December 13th at 1:00pm and 1:30pm Eastern. I read their posts on RV-Dreams and that was posted today. We watched the first two episodes and they were very good.

    Some time between episodes. I don't know exactly when. They are members here but not active. We have (Corp) been in contact with them in some fashion but I don't have any details.

    I did catch the Good Morning America show the day they were on. Sort of cool to see the Cyclone in Manhattan! I read his blog post about getting in and out of the island. What a trip.
