CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Syfrett family sold their house and now live in a recreation vehicle full time. They are spending June spreading the word about service to others. They stopped at Rescued Treasures Thrift Store on their way to Montana.

The Syfrett family documents their journey on their YouTube channel. They are hoping to inspire their audience to help others. “We needed to see people starting to care about others and not just themself,” said Carolyn Syfrett.

Carolyn is a registered nurse and her husband, Garret is an RV tech. On this trip, they are focusing on the service projects, but are having some fun along the way. “We’ve been going to many National Parks,” Carolyn said.

Garrett and Carolyn have three children and sometimes travelling with them in an RV can be a challenge. “You don’t know who to trust. Having a travelling community has been really helpful because we know and have people we trust,” Garrett said.

It’s rewarding for them to serve others and give their kids experiences that are hard to come by. “Our last service project was in a greenhouse harvesting lettuce and planting it in aquaponics. It was so cool,” Carolyn said.
