74 overlander family of 5 fixin to full time

I know we are crazy! But it will be an adventure. We bought our 74 Overlander in TX over a year ago, and have taken her to the beach many times. 2 months ago we moved to Durango with my PIL. Boy was that an excersice in self control. Needless to say if only half the family is compromising there is a problem. So we are moving again and will be full timing on our friends ten acres for a few months to get back on our feet and recoup some of the $1000s of dollars this cost us. She has an electicity pole and I think we can tap into her septic system. So everything is going into storage and we are going to try this for a few months. If it works out and we dont end up divorced!@!! we are going to try beach living next while I go back to school. I lived in an RV with my dad in South Africa on weekends and hollidays so its not totally new to me. But Ive never done it with 3 kids and a cat and dog! Oh the adventures and things we will learn about ourselves is endless.
Any words of wisdom,advice or jokes are apreciated
Sam, jeremy and our crew of crazy beautiful kids

Make sure ou have plenty of "patience" close by, and probably lots of it.
