Kayak family in the Denver Post

Colorado family of 14 kayaking throughout the U.S. - The Denver Post

After recent comments about not being able to be a boater and raise kids in an RV (I'm paraphrasing, don't even remember which thread this was in), I thought this story was pretty compelling. Enjoy.

The artist of the family, 18-year-old Kerry, was at first reticent about the whole life-on-the-road thing.
"At first, I guess I really didn't want any change, but then I realized that change is exactly what I want," she says. "I love the fact that we don't have any roots. We don't have any specific place we need to be. We are just free."

What an incredible perspective at such a young age!

I can only imagine how hard it is to home-school this many children and imagine the logistics of that many people in an RV takes some serious effort, but I think it's great that they defy the norm and decided to go for it! It must really put a person's "wants vs needs" into perspective.

"You know that old trees just grow stronger and old rivers grow wilder, everyday..."

I am stoked for these kids! Good article! Btw Mr. Kellogg sorry I gave Grady a hard time about the search entry, I did vote for him though and hope he's still getting tricky

I spent a short amount of time play-boating with two of the Kellogs at Fibark. I don't remember their names, but they were smaller and loved getting tossed around in a semi tricky hole. I was impressed.

We are stoked for them. They have the balls to do what I hope to do some day. Cool story! I hope to meet them on a river sometime soon.

With 12 little poopers in one 35' RV I don't think they have the luxury of saying - "No number 2's in the RV toilet!
