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!!

- 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. Direct ...
- Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Geeks on Tour Meet Jim & Chris After Jim’s son moved out of the house in 2003, he and Chris sold their home and fulfilled their dream of full time RVing – trusting they could figure out how to earn a living. Being long time computer geeks, they naturally started helping others and ended up developing training courses to assist their fellow travelers document and record travels with photos on Google’s Picasa. They now teach in person, online and have expanded their training topics. Check out their technical resources: When we first hit the road in 2006, we came upon the Geeks on Tour early on and quickly identified with them. It wasn’t until 2013 that we finally intersected paths to meet up with them. We hope you enjoy virtually meeting them in this interview, they’re even more fun in person than their amazing laughter and stories indicate!
