We’re Andi & Scott Johnson and the couple behind the wheel of Thrive In Drive!
In 2019 we made the leap to full-time RV travel with our two kids, Jake and Becca and our crazy dog, Bear.
The clock was ticking…
We have been on a path that would lead us to financial freedom and more family time probably since the day our oldest was born. However, last February our oldest had just turned 10 and we were discussing possible options for Spring Break trips when it hit me like a ton of bricks: Jake is 10, that means we only have 8 more Spring Breaks, 8 more summers…8. And Becca wouldn’t be far behind. What about all the places we wanted to take the kids? What about those epic family road trips to the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone? How were we going to squeeze it all in?
The truth was we wouldn’t, we couldn’t.
More family time…
Meanwhile, my husband’s job, one that was supposed to give us more family time (we lived at a summer camp), was way more demanding than we ever imagined it would be and we had even less time together as a family. And since his busy season was during summer break that meant family time would be confined to spring and fall breaks. 8 more years of 2 weeks of vacation with the kids? That’s it?
Full-time RV travel
So we started dreaming and eventually that led us to full-time RV travel.
Here on Thrive in Drive we will be sharing our travel adventures (and misadventures) as a family, why we’re on this adventure, what life is like on the road and how to get started, if this nomadic lifestyle is something that interests you.
We hope you’ll join us on this journey and we hope you’ll see us soon!
