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 looked at themselves dressed in business suits and decided that’s not who they wanted to be. They had the remarkable maturity to start living frugally to put away 2/3 of their income – thinking this would afford them ‘2 years of freedom for every 1 year worked’. By February 2009, at the age of 24, they had both quit their jobs and lined up an amazing 2-month work-exchange position at a resort in the Dominican Republic.  When they came back, they decided they want to RV across America to see more of their ...
  • Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – How They Fund Their Travels (Compilation) Screen Shot 2012-03-25 at 11.28.13 PMIn what seems like a short time ago, the NuRVers gang had a major organized gathering in Gonzales, Texas called ‘Days of the Nu 2′. Not only were we fortunate enough to attend this unique convergence of other full time RVers who work as we roam – we took on the task of filming video interviews during the event. We had great intentions with the project – ranging from producing a feature length film introducing you to some inspiring people to perhaps publishing a video podcast series with the footage. But between some technical glitches getting the video in a format we could edit, life shifting focus for us and swimming in dozens of hours of footage – I really came to appreciate those who have the patience, dedication and talents to put together such projects. I realized this week – it’s been nearly 2 years since that gathering in April 2010! We’ve past the point ...
