About us


Welcome to The Adventure Detour! We are so glad you are here. Our goal is to guide you to unique US travel destinations, help you navigate full time RV living, and share RV travel tips and tricks.

Something that makes us different is our unfiltered approach. We choose to share both the benefits of travel and the drawbacks.

Our family of 3 made the decision to turn our love of travel into living in an RV full time. In 2015, we sold our house, cars, and most of what we owned to try RV life in search of adventures and more time together.

When we were researching the full time RV lifestyle, we struggled to find transparent resources. We wanted to know both the benefits AND the challenges of RV living full time to know if it was a good fit for our family.

After RVing full time for 7 years across 42 states, we want to share what we have learned to inspire you to live your travel dream! We promise to share the amazing parts, the daily living, and the challenges of living on the road to support you in your journey.

We also strive to share not only amazing travel destinations but also raw and real travel advice. We are transparent about the pros and cons of places, how to avoid crowds, and which places you may want to skip altogether!

So who are we? We are Scott, Van, and Sissy. We had a regular Midwest suburb life before hitting the road. Now we are digital nomads and roadschooling.

We had an initial full-time travel goal of 2 years and wanted to see as many national parks and states as we could see. After 2 years passed, we just kept on traveling and here we are now at 7 years of RVing full-time.

Scott loves off-beat travel locations and photography. He is our family small space chef, driver, and all things RV maintenance.

Van loves anything to do with national parks and is travel obsessed. We have visited 37 national parks so far but want to see them all. Van is our family travel planner, roadschool teacher, and RV camping reservations ninja.

She put her best tips and tricks on how to grab hard-to-book RV reservations in a FREE GUIDE: How To Score Sold-Out Campsites In State and National Parks.

Sissy collects National Park Junior Ranger badges and has over 100 so far. Her passions are hiking, reading, and sewing.
