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 – Breaking Up With Normal IMG_6441Meet Brenda & Karin A random idea around the pool lead to Brenda & Karin starting to downsize their lives to full time RV so they could see their family more often. In December 2012, after 2.5 years of planning, they hit the road. We caught up with them 2 months later for this video interview where they talk about their decision making and planning process. Karin is a retired police officer who’s pension funds most of their living expenses, and Brenda is able to supplement their income with her massage therapy work. Direct Video Link Update to this story However, since this interview was filmed, they’ve had a pretty major change… Brenda was kind enough to give us an update: Last May, when less than a mile from our destination, we experienced total brake failure when approaching a yellow light. The light turned red right before we hit the intersection. As we went through the red light ...
