Caly Behymer & Randy Behymer

Caly Behymer & Randy Behymer

Editor-in-Chief & President

Randy and Caly Behymer are avid RV travelers, hikers, and photographers. They have been RV’ing together for years, visiting states and many countries of the world. Their love of RV travel and documenting that travel to share with others turned into creating RV Destinations Magazine.

They have a successful financial planning practice and have been in the financial services industry since the early ’90s. Photography has always been a creative outlet for them eventually leading them to open a photography business.

Randy and Caly are from a small rural town in Kentucky. There they live with two dogs and a cat. Two Boxers, Bella and Zoe, and Gus the cat. Randy has three children from a previous marriage that has blessed them both with several grandkids.

When not in their stationary home, they can be found traveling the United States and Canada in their second home, their 2018 Winnebago Journey, and documenting their adventures through word and camera lens.

Their wish for their readers? “We created RV Destinations Magazine for the traveler and adventurer. For those who want to explore new places and revisit the familiar with a new eye. We designed this magazine to make our readers want to get out, explore and memorialize the world around them, with tips on places to see, things to do, and tricks for photographing it the best.”

Lee Hetherington

Lee Hetherington

CMO

I have enjoyed a robust magazine publishing career spanning some 3-decades. My greatest joy and fulfillment have come when the content of the magazine is intertwined with my personal passion. Enter RV Destinations magazine. Being able to embrace the RV lifestyle while helping the team publish RVD magazine, podcast, and e-newsletter is a welcome adventure that my wife Cindy and I are grateful to be a part of.

We love the ability to work remotely and travel in our 5th wheel. Last year we enjoyed 90-days on the road and this year we’re booked for some 120 days at 8 destinations. When not travelling with the RV, we can be found in Minnesota & North Carolina with our 3 adult children, family & friends.
