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.

They cut their expenses to live off one person’s income, and used the rest to pay off debts and stock some cash away for their adventures.  When we spoke with them in June, they had just completed their first year on the road – traveling throughout Latin America.  They share a lot of their tips and tricks for planning, preparing and experiencing. They started a blog to see if it would stick, and have been able to supplement their savings with income generated by their online efforts to afford to do the more expensive fun stuff – like getting SCUBA certified. When we spoke with them in Austin ...
