Johnson and Annette
Lamb share a love of adventure. When they married in
1995, they decided to spend their new life together
exploring the world. After spending five years in a cute
little log home in the rolling hills of southern Indiana,
they were ready to "take off" for good. Annette was ready
for a change after nearly fifteen years as a college
professor. With thirty years in K-12 and higher
education, Larry was ready to focus on his own learning.
Like many "baby boomers," they weren't interested in
traditional retirement, but were ready for a change.
- They spent a few years exploring the possibilities,
buying Motorhome and Highways magazines,
and reading books about full-timing. Trips to RV shows,
explorations of Class A floorplans, and walks through
campgrounds gave them lots of ideas. They joined the
full-timers group and talked to full-timers about their
experiences. Based on their informal research, they were
ready to "do it."
- Unfortunately, Larry and Annette didn't win the
lottery or inherit tons of money, so their first order of
business was making money on the road. In 1995, they
began a publishing business called Vision
to Action that brings in a small income. In addition,
Annette and Larry have formed a company called Lamb
Learning Group that provides professional development
services including presentations and workshops for
educators. Between the two businesses and a small nest
egg, they hope to stay on the road for five, ten,
fifteen, or more years.
- Their friends and family have been supportive. Their
three children (Brooke, Blake, and Ben) are nearly grown
and beginning their own lives, while their parents and
siblings are waiting to see how it goes. Maybe some of
them will also become full-timers someday.
- The Mobile Mavericks began as a public service for
people interested in learning about "life on the road".
Annette and Larry plan to write articles and publish
books on the RV lifestyle.
