Welcome to Martins Gone Mad!
Hey there, we’re the Martins from Richmond, VA. We ditched the “normal” lifestyle (whatever that is), downsized, bought a vintage Greyhound bus, made it into our tinyhome, and hit the road.
Billy is a Voice Actor and works from his sound studio in the bus. You’ve probably heard him on TV! I roadschool the kids. We try to stop at every National Park, famous burger joint, or legendary dessert spot we pass. We’ve learned a lot, met some incredible people, and seen some amazing places.
Some dude we had met told us that driving the length of Texas would feel reallllly loooong. I’m sure that’s true if you’re trying to drive it straight, or if you’re just trying to make it to the other side, but we’re all “Life’s About the Journey” over here, so it wasn’t bad!
What is Thanksgiving without friends or family? SADNESS. Sorry to be so dramatic. I knew that no matter WHAT we did for Thanksgiving- in the kids’ eyes, it would never, ever live up to our normal celebration (we usually host). At least I planned ahead. I figured that instead of trying to compete with their expectations, it would be better do something entirely different, something we wouldn’t normally do because we’re busy hosting.
