Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Zen Nomads

Meet Sam & Tracy

When we first met Sam & Tracy at the NuRVers Gathering in 2010, they had just hit the road 6 months prior. We instantly clicked with these two, and have since rendezvoused with them several times over the years.

It’s been fun to watch them come out of their shells since we first met them, and really come into their own. And we wanted to share their inspiring story with you – these guys have gotten younger and more playful since we met them!

In their mid-40s, they are grandparents. Grandparents with rainbow colored hair.

The video below starts with the interview we did with them back in 2010 and then a follow-up from over this past summer. They talk about a lot of stuff they’ve learned after now being on the road 3 years – from boondocking tips, traveling with an aquatic turtle and running a mobile software business.

  • Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Porkchop Express IMG_2901Meet Porkchop and Lucy We were blessed with the very rare opportunity to be part of a couple’s first day on the road as full-timers – and they were kind enough to let us interview them on camera. Porkchop and Lucy were tired of the city they were living in, and were trying to choose – what’s next?  No particular city was calling them, and they were contemplating renting vacation homes around the country to gain some mobility and check out some new cities. Then Porkchop got intrigued with the idea of RVing instead – they wouldn’t have to pack all the time and would be able to move on whenever they liked without rental contracts. The problem?  Lucy wasn’t so keen on the idea. In this interview, these two share with us their (very recent and fresh on their mind) process of coming to this decision and how they eventually came to see eye ...
  • Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Digital Mastery Ben and Karen at NuRVers 2010Meet Ben & Karen Ben hit the road solo in early 2006, and he was the first fellow technomad we encountered on the road. He’s a renowned Photoshop guru and amazing photographer who creates educational material and presents seminars on those subjects. Long about 2009, he met Karen – who was able to transition her graphic design career to move aboard with him. Ben also bought a vintage Flxible bus to re-convert into his dream project and had a goal to move aboard with a year or so. We interviewed them both on camera in April 2010 at the NuRVers Gathering, just months after moving in together. And we caught up with them recently for a follow-up about how their careers have changed, transitioning from solo to coupled travel and their vintage bus project. The video below in a compilation of both interviews. And sending many congrats to these two on their upcoming wedding!! Direct ...
