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 – Intense Lives Gillian Kwamena and EfuaMeet Gillian We met Gillian, a nomad at heart, at the NuRVers April 2010 gathering in Gonzales, TX. When we caught up with her for this interview, she had been RVing the US for about 9 months. As a single woman. With her two kids. In this interview she talks about living on the road raising her kids on her own, and how she’s overcome not just other people’s sterotypes – but her own assumptions of how others will respond to her. In total, Gillian and her kids traveled in the RV for 15 months, and then switched to living on a sailboat. And according to her blog, they also spent some time living in Hawaii after that. In a recent catch up with her, we learned that they’ve now returned to their homebase in Trinidad to focus on creating a sustainable homestead promoting locally grown foods. We think you’ll agree, she’s one brave, inspiring and ...
  • Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Co-Bear co-bearMeet Danny & Cindy Cindy and Danny were newlyweds and got to thinking about where they wanted to live to be close to their kids and grandkids, but not so close that they’d be full time babysitters. Then they saw an RV on a lot they fell in love with, and figured, why not try out full time RVing and see the country? Cindy had been a professional photographer in her local community, and is navigating how to take her business on the road. This interview catches them in April 2013, just a couple months after they hit the road. We end with a quick 1-year follow-up that finds them still loving the RVing lifestyle as they integrate in workamping with their photography.
