Hey! We’re Heath & Alyssa.

We are bloggers, entrepreneurs, and travelers.

Here are some nice people who have shared our story:

Our Story:

Four days after our wedding, we jumped into an RV and started traveling full-time.

Here’s a glimpse of the past few years:

Now in 2022, we’re traveling the world with our family.

Team Padgett:


I’m the crazy dreamer of the family. I have slightly ridiculous big ideas and Alyssa helps bring me down to Earth to execute on them.

I co-founded CampgroundBooking.com, an online reservation tool for campgrounds, and started the RV Entrepreneur Podcast.

Would love to meet you on: Instagram, LinkedIn, or Facebook


I’m Alyssa! I wrote a best-selling book on how to start RVing full-time called A Beginner’s Guide to Living in an RV.

I spend most of my time writing and plotting our travels. I’m happiest when I’m outside near the water. I don’t function without coffee, but who does?

You can find me on: Instagram, Youtube, & Pinterest

We share our story here on our blog: the good and the bad.

From renovating our first RV to our first failed business launch.

What We’re Up to Now:


In 2020 we are touring the country in search of a campground! We will be touring the best campgrounds in the country as we search for our own property to purchase.


Our daughter Ellie is loving RV life and even has her own bedroom in our Winnebago Forza (okay the second bathroom can fit a pack-n-play so it has become her room!)


After RVing abroad the past two years, we’re sticking around in 2020 touring the country from Florida to Colorado.

If You Want to Hear the Whole Story…

In 2014, we quit our jobs, bought an old RV and head west.

We were living in Texas and working office jobs we hated while we planned our wedding. Then one day the idea struck: what if we kicked off our marriage with a fifty state honeymoon?

Our friends and family thought we were crazy, but we knew we wanted more out of life than working jobs we hated in a city where we didn’t see ourselves living forever.

To make our fifty state honeymoon idea a little more feasible, Heath decided to work a job in each state as part of our documentary, Hourly America. He worked, Alyssa filmed, and we realized a few things…

After a year of living and traveling in an RV, we were in love with full-time travel.

But we had student debt and no experience running a remote business. Taking what we learned from filming our documentary, we started a video production business, a consulting business, and then a software business all from our RV as we figured out how to make money while traveling.

That’s when Heath started The RV Entrepreneur Podcast, sharing stories of nomadic entrepreneurs building mobile businesses.

How podcasting changed my life

As we continued traveling, we upgraded RVs to a Winnebago Brave. We needed a rig that had a little more space for us to run our businesses, plus our first RV was over twenty years old and couldn’t quite take the miles anymore.

We spent a year out west, spent a year out east, and kept traveling as much as we could. Along the way, we shared our story on our blog, podcast, and even a few Youtube videos.

That’s when Alyssa decided to write her first book, A Beginner’s Guide to Living in an RV, which would teach other wannabe travelers how to start RVing full-time.

The book was an instant best-seller, a testament to the fact that RVing is quickly becoming the coolest thing to do.

After spending the first four years of our marriage traversing America, we decided to broaden our horizons. And what better to start seeing the world than by RV?

We started in New Zealand, spending two months exploring what is known as the most RV-friendly (or campervan, as they call them) country in the world.

Next, we visited Canada and we’ve got our eyes on Europe in 2019.
