Does anyone know if homeschooling trips are by any chance tax deductable?
I spent about 3 months out on the road this last fall with my three dragging them around the western US living out of our 5th wheel hitting all the museums and historic spots we could find before their little heads burst, and with 14 states and 6742 miles, I was wondering if it were at all possible to write off that mileage or any part of that trip?
Thanks.

I don't think so. It would be great if so because we did a similar thing back in 2005-06. (see www.awaywego.us) While I never actually checked to be sure, I assume since your homeschooling or private school expenses are not deductible, then neither would the travel be.

BTW: did you create a blog about your travels? I'd like to see it. We covered 25 states in our motorhome going to all 4 corners of the country including Alaska.
