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 – Every Mile’s A Memory Pat & Cindy Bonish - Every Mile's A MemoryMeet Pat & Cindy Pat and Cindy started planning their nomadic journey 10 years before they actually hit the road – timing it with their daughter’s 18th birthday.  They sold their successful restaurant and two homes they owned to fund their travels and set out with intentions of being on the road for two years in their 25′ travel trailer. They hit a snag however when they decided they loved life on the road, and now needed to figure out how to continue funding it.  Selling their photography didn’t turn out to be fruitful enough, so they manifested an amazing opportunity to start banking some more cash – turning around a motel, RV Park and Tiki Bar in their favorite destination. They love Cedar Key, FL so much, that they are continuing to run the amazing Low-Key Hideaway – a travelers port of call. And one day… they’ll hit the road again. Direct video ...
  • Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Video Interview with Liv2RV liv2rv ramblingsMeet Dan & Jonell Dan and Jonell were both approaching 50 and sat down with their financial advisor and learned they were on track to retire in their late 60s. After a career working in a trauma center, Jonell knew all too well that life is too short to wait that long to put off their dreams. So they threw caution into the wind, and decided to create a new life for themselves – full time RVing. Since June 2013, they’ve been seeking wage paying workamping jobs to use as basecamps to explore the country. We caught this interview with them earlier this year in Cedar Key, Florida – and today they’re still on the road, still workamping and still loving the lifestyle!
