    Divorced people are 2.4 times likely to commit suicide, and within that group, men are 9 times more likely to commit suicide as women (so for every 1 divorced female who commits suicide, there are 9 divorced men who do)

Real talk

I appreciate how JR and Kayla share the ups and downs, ins and outs, of their RVing and other jobs they have had to make this lifestyle possible! It’s encouraging! I also think they do a great job of sharing how to try new things (jobs, lifestyles, parenting, & RV living) with less fear and more an attitude of adventure!!
