Hi!  We are the Corder Family and we’re happy to have you here!

In the summer of 2017, our little family of 5 decided we wanted to sell our home in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and hit the road full-time in our 39ft RV.  We love traveling and having the USA as our backyard.

As of this update (April 2020), our house has yet to sell. There’s a reason, and only God knows that reason. We are patiently waiting for the right buyer at the right time. While we wait, we are still traveling the country.

We’ve always lived Way Beyond The Norm, and this transition is just the next step in our journey. We want less stuff to occupy our time and more experiences to share with each other.  We hope you will join us for the ride!


Hi, I’m Brent! I’m the captain of this ship. I am the chauffeur, resident IT professional, handyman, and bug killer – in addition to the roles of husband and father.

I enjoy learning and understanding how things work from a technical and engineering perspective. I also love being in nature, whether hiking or sitting and relaxing.

Hello, I’m Kristi! I’ll be the one writing most of the blog posts on our page. I look forward to sharing our journeys with you. Perhaps you will find some inspiration to begin living way beyond the norm in your life as well.

I’m a wife, a mommy, and a teacher to my 3 kiddos. I’m also a chiropractor and health consultant to many. I was born and raised in New Mexico before moving to Texas to attend chiropractic school. I’ve owned my own business for almost 20 years and have grown it into the family practice of my dreams. I’ve homeschooled my children since they were in kindergarten and enjoy watching them grow intellectually. I love all things relating to holistic healthcare for families, Disney, and travel.

Though I gave up my chiropractic practice to travel around the country with my family, I fully intend to rebuild my practice wherever we may call home in the future. For now, I get to continue helping clients live healthier lives through virtual health consulting.

Hi, I’m Allison! Some people call me Ali, but I prefer Allison. I play the violin and enjoy fashion design. I like art and like to cook. I also really like puppies.

While we are traveling, I hope we get to go back to Disney World. My favorite places that we’ve visited so far are Disney World and Hot Springs National Park.

*Mom note: This girl is amazingly creative and has a beautiful smile despite not wanting to show it. She’s very independent and is most like me. I expect great things from her in the future.

Hi, my name is Abigail. Everyone calls me Abi. I love sports and my favorite sport is football. My favorite football team is the Dallas Cowboys, and my favorite football player is Alfred Morris (or Mr. Alfred as I like to call him) who played for both the Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers. I also love quilling. You can find my artwork on Facebook and Instagram.

While we are traveling, I would really like to visit Alaska. My favorite places that we’ve visited so far are Mount Rushmore, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, and Lake Isabella, CA.

*Mom note: This girl is hilarious and loves to dance all the time. She’s also our sensitive one…you’ll find her crying if the Cowboys lose a game.

Hi, my name is Peyton. I really like to play with friends and toys and I love doing magic tricks. My favorite restaurants are Whataburger and Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.

While we are traveling, I would really like to visit Alaska. My favorite place we’ve already visited is Florida.

*Mom note: This boy is carefree and random. He keeps us laughing yet makes us wonder what goes on in his mind. Oh, he also needs an on/off switch…well, maybe just an off switch.
