Hi, we are the Scotts – Brian, Christie, Connor & Racey.
Brian & Christie are a thirty-somethings couple with a love of the outdoors, adventure and the open road. Nothing makes us happier than going for a drive and we love stopping along the way to take photos or just experience something new and wonderful. Connor & Racey are our fun-loving teenagers who enjoy coming along whenever they possibly can to enjoy National Parks, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking, camping, photography, well pretty much anything.
We are currently house dwellers and not full time RVing – for now. We definitely have plans to get out there again. Here is our story!
In 2014 we took our honeymoon in this little 18ft travel trailer (The Biscuit) we had purchased for weekend trips. We enjoyed our road trip from Colorado to Seattle, down the coast through Washington, fell in love with the Oregon coast AND fell in love with RVing. so much so that we decided we would like to be FULL TIME RVers! We cut our honeymoon short and went to purchase a bigger travel trailer across the country.
In 2015 we became full time RVers in our travel trailer named Dorothy. After an involved remodel, two deaths in the family and a lot of major life changes, we were more than ready to become full timers and enjoy life on the road. We started off with an incredible summer with the kids covering 10,000 miles in 5 weeks and hitting 7 National Parks.
Oh, by the way, we LOVE National Parks. We kinda have a thing for them. We collect our pins and passport stamps along the way, while Racey loves earning Junior Ranger badges.
In 2016 we enjoyed our time in a new fifth wheel, our Montana High Country named Mavis. We rallied with other working-age full time RVers in Quartzsite, Arizona and spent more time exploring the desert. After a spring in Colorado, we spent the first half of our summer in Michigan, Indiana Illinois, then we took the kids through Minnesota, Wisconsin, and back toMichigan. We all loved the Upper Peninsula – especially Sleeping Bear Dunes and Pictured Rocks.
Fall 2016 was spent in Colorado Springs which was just gorgeous. We spent Christmas in Montana with the kids.
January 2017 we rallied with RVing friends again in Quartzsite, Arizona – this time sporting a new home on wheels, our classic 1989 Airstream 345 Motorhome. We made some amazing new friends and even had a camping afterparty in Lake Havasu.
Life happened. Circumstances changed and our amazing teenagers became a full time part of our lives… instead of full time RVers, we would now become full time parents. This meant settling down in a home WITHOUT wheels for a few years here in Montana. Can’t think of a better reason to stick around for a while than these two amazing kids.
So, that’s how we went from house dwellers to avid travelers to full time RVers and back to house dwellers again!!! We’ve had to remind ourselves of one big important thing…. it’s LIFE that is the adventure!!!
Right now we may not be traveling as much, but we are living life as full as we can and enjoying every moment with these kiddos, while hitting the road as a family whenever possible. We’re looking forward to lots more trips and once these two are grown we plan to go full time again in our Airstream, finish seeing the rest of the US and even RVing around Europe for a few years.
Thanks for getting to know us and we hope you’ll come along with us on this ride called LIFE! 🙂
