Meet Ben & Karen
Ben hit the road solo in early 2006, and he was the first fellow technomad we encountered on the road. He’s a renowned Photoshop guru and amazing photographer who creates educational material and presents seminars on those subjects.
Long about 2009, he met Karen – who was able to transition her graphic design career to move aboard with him. Ben also bought a vintage Flxible bus to re-convert into his dream project and had a goal to move aboard with a year or so.
We interviewed them both on camera in April 2010 at the NuRVers Gathering, just months after moving in together. And we caught up with them recently for a follow-up about how their careers have changed, transitioning from solo to coupled travel and their vintage bus project. The video below in a compilation of both interviews.
And sending many congrats to these two on their upcoming wedding!!

- Mobile Income on the Road Ideas – New Video One of our most popular YouTube videos is a little compilation of interviews we took at a NuRVer gathering back in 2010. It’s what started our Ramblings: Tales from Nomads video series. We had some spare bandwidth at the end of our billing cycle this month, so I used the opportunity to create and upload a second compilation with interviews we’ve conducted with nomads since then. It’s all focused on mobile income sources on the road – from workamping, remote tech jobs, seasonal jobs, accounting, design and more. If you’ve followed our Ramblings series, then you’ve already met some of these folks before. Direct Video Link (for those getting this via e-mail) We’ve also updated our Ramblings page with a current status update on each nomad we’ve interviewed before. It’s kinda fun to see who’s still on the road, or has moved on to new adventures. Enjoy! We so love sharing the stories of others, ...
- Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Video Interview with Liv2RV Meet 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!
