Dan and Susie Kellogg, plus their 12 children, decided to ditch middle-class trappings by getting rid of their home and car, in order to move into an RV and see the country. During a family vacation, last year, the family decided to hit the road and see the sights.

Susie Kellogg, in a recent interview with Bob Dotson of NBC Today, said they wanted to be rid of a mortgage and car payments. Leaving their former home in the mountains, they chose the freedom of the open road, over the American dream.
