Heath & Alyssa PADGETT


In 2014 they quit their jobs, bought an old RV and went on a year-long road trip.

After a year of living and traveling in an RV, they realized the lifestyle was awesome and didn’t want to give it up. So they paid off a bunch of debt, built up their video production business, and travel full-time in an RV.

Along the way they share the journey through a weekly podcast and Youtube channel. Heath and Alyssa also produced the documentary Hourly America , detailing their year on the road and Heath's ambition to work an hourly job in each of the 50 states.
