Utah Family Who Sold Belongings to Live on the Road for a Year Announce Next Big Adventure: ‘It Won’t Be Easy’

After selling practically everything they owned to live on the road for a year in a fifth-wheel trailer, a Utah family of six has decided since returning home that a quiet life in the suburbs is not for them.

So Michael and Marisa Johnson and their four children are once again leaving their hometown of Eagle Mountain — this time to live in South America.

Beginning in mid-March, they’ll spend a year volunteering with Operation Underground Railroad, hoping to comfort children who have been rescued from sex trafficking and have no homes to return to because they were either sold as sex slaves or their families have moved away.

“I think about my own children and know that if they had endured something so horrific, I’d want somebody to be there for them,” Marisa, 40, tells PEOPLE. “We want to help these kids to see that they now have a voice and a choice of what they do with the rest of their lives.”

Doing something outside of their comfort zone became important to the Johnsons when they returned to Utah last year after renting out their home, selling most of their possessions and hitting the highway in search of adventure and togetherness in a 400-square-foot trailer, blogging about their new lifestyle along the way.

Michael, 40, gave up his job as an investor at a local bank; Marisa decided that she could run her essential oils business anywhere, and their four children — Reece, 16, Maya, 13, Mason, 11, and Madelyn, 7 — agreed to put their social lives on hold for a year.

“It seemed that I was never home — I was always working,” Michael tells PEOPLE, “and it bothered us that we weren’t writing our own story. So we decided, ‘Why be defined by our stuff? Let’s release it and go. Why not take a chance?’ ”

Because the Johnson kids are homeschooled, it was fairly easy to transfer their daily routines to the kitchen table of the $ 55,000 trailer purchased for the trip.

Sharing one bedroom together, though? Not so much.

“The hardest part was having to share a bed with my sister (Maya) and not having very many toys,” says Madelyn. “But visiting a jelly bean factory, meeting new people and going to lots of beaches helped make up for it.”

In one year, the Johnsons and their two yellow labs, Lily and Jada, made it to 27 states, stopping at every national park and museum they could find along the way. Craters of the Moon in Idaho was one favorite stop, along with the beaches of Big Sur in northern California and Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina.

Each family member was allowed to bring enough clothes to fit on two shelves, plus two totes for toys, books, electronics and favorite mementos.

“We stayed in RV parks along the way and had to go grocery shopping about every three days,” Marisa tells PEOPLE. “The kids spent several hours every day doing homework, but seeing the amazing diversity of our country was the best education they could have asked for. Being on the road together 24/7, we all learned what’s important. The trip brought us closer together.”

For “alone” time, everyone relied on earphones to escape with their favorite music now and then, she says, “and if there was an argument, you learned to forgive and forget pretty quickly.”

When they returned home to Utah last fall, the Johnsons decided to look for another opportunity to grow as a family, only this time while serving others. When Marisa learned about a care center in South America for children who had been rescued from sex trafficking, she knew there was no need to search further.

In a week or two, after the fifth-wheel trailer is sold, the family will pack their suitcases and fly to an undisclosed nation to volunteer for one year.

“We’re hoping to make a difference in these kids’ lives somehow,” says Michael, “and we want to let them know that somebody’s there for them. A lot of them were sold by family members or taken away with the promise of a modeling or acting career. We want to help them start over and know they are loved.”

“Living away from home for another year won’t be easy,” he admits, “but it’s important to focus on others, and not just ourselves. That’s the lesson we hope our kids will take away from this: We’re all in this world together.”

Couple Makes Fake Movie Poster To Announce Pregnancy News

When Brittney Dufrene and Ryan Cannon learned they were expecting their first child, they decided to announce the news in a creative way.

“I wanted something a little different, something cute, yet funny, to capture our personalities,” Dufrene told The Huffington Post. “So, I began to search on Pinterest for some ideas; a few really caught my eye.” 

The parents-to-be put together a fake movie poster featuring a positive pregnancy test, a copy of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” and lots of snacks for those infamous cravings.

Dufrene posted the image on Facebook and sent it to the uplifting “Love What Matters” page. “With all the crazy stuff going on in the world, I thought maybe this post would bring smiles to people’s faces,” she said. The image received over 11,000 likes on Love What Matters

Though the mom-to-be drew inspiration from Pinterest, she wanted to add some personalized flair to her announcement. She decided to include a king cake in the shot. “We are from Louisiana, and Mardi Gras season is in full effect ― so having King Cake this time of year is a must!” Dufrene explained.

The online attention has been a pleasant surprise for the couple. “At first I did not think this many people would see the picture, but, it is exciting to see that our announcement has gotten as far as it has,” Dufrene said.

“It is also very uplifting to see all the positive reactions and smiles it has brought to many,” she added. “I am just happy to see some positive news spread across the media.”

Pogue’s Basics: Have your iPhone announce your callsI’ve got a friend whose home cordless phone (yes, she still has one of those) announces, out loud, who’s calling. It’s kind of cool, because if you’re making dinner or watching TV or something, you know whether it’s worth answering. “Call from Vantage Insurance,” it’ll say — a telemarketer — and she ignores it. “Call from David Pogue,” and, of course, she leaps to answer.

Designers Behind New York’s Floating Pool Announce Next Steps

The team behind Plus Pool (+POOL) — that floating swimming hole that promises to be the world’s first water-filtering system of its kind — is inching closer to its goal of creating a massive public pool on the banks of New York’s East River.

In a statement released this week, masterminds Archie Lee Coates IV, Dong-Ping Wong and Jeff Franklin announced they are beginning construction on Float Lab, an experimental version of the planned 164-foot +POOL. They raised the funds for the smaller pool (35 feet by 35 feet, to be exact) through their last Kickstarter endeavor. Set to launch in 2014, it will put their filtration membranes to the test in real-river conditions and run throughout the summer to capture data.

pool kickstarter

Coates and company have partnered with naval architects at Persak & Wurmfeld, filtration textiles and systems specialists at Mackworth, fabricators at Olollo, Hudson River Park’s Pier 40, River Project, Columbia University’s Earth Institute and Riverkeeper to help make the test pool and water quality studies happen, and to keep the public informed of their progress.

Along with Float Lab, +POOL also announced the next phase of it’s “Tile by Tile” campaign, a crowdfunding method that offers supporters the opportunity to purchase a +POOL tile that will become part of the project’s final structure. The team is hoping to raise $ 500,000 this time around to further the larger pool’s design, engineering development, and economic impact report, among other things.

The 164-foot +POOL is still scheduled to open in 2016, if fundraising allows. In total, the pool needs to sell 70,000 tiles to reach its $ 15 million goal — a sum that would make this project the largest publicly and privately funded civic project to date.

“We look at the High Line as a perfect model [for +POOL funding]. It’s both public and private in the sense that it functions like a public park — it’s free to the public, the public can use it,” Coates explained in an interview with The Huffington Post. “But it’s offering all of this privately, because it’s funded through a non-profit called “Friends of the High Line.” That would be our goal, so that the project is not a burden on the city.”

“We’re not adding problems, but we are creating something that is a full-on part of the civic architecture of the city,” he added.
