  1. Hi, newbie here... not sure if this is the place to post, so please help redirect me, if necessary. I saw a bunch of new startups centered around telecommuters touring the world staying at a foreign destination 1 month at a time. However, due to our family having a dog and children, we wouldn't qualify. I was wondering if there are RV travel groups centered around telecommuting families traveling the lower 48 and Alaska? If not, it would be nice to see if there is interest in traveling to different areas of the country as a group to help facilitate specific issues like: Internet connectivity, homeschooling, day trips for children to visit landmarks, safety, etc. Thanks!
