Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – The Organic Sister

Meet Justin, Tara & Zeb

organicsisterWhen we first met this family back in April 2010 at the NuRVers Texas Gathering, they had just hit the road 2 months prior. They had originally intended to spend a year traveling the country, working odd jobs (handy man work, massage therapy, organizing, etc.), while they searched for a new home to settled down at.

But they quickly realized they enjoyed the road.

We caught up with them for a follow-up interview this past fall, now having been on the road nearly 3 years. They’ve since upgraded their RV to a larger 5th wheel, their careers have taken off (her a life coach, him a juggler) and there have been personal transformations as a result of being on the road.

In this interview they also talk about using Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) and unschooling their 13 year old son.

  • Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Pace & Kyeli paceandkyeliMeet Pace & Kyeli Smith Last summer, Pace & Kyeli got bitten by the full time RVing bug and jumped head first into the lifestyle. Inside of a few months they went from never having stepped foot in an RV to selling most of their stuff, acquiring a truck and 5th wheel and hit the road. They already had a life coaching practice that was earning about half their expenses, and aimed to build the business up to support them completely. In this video interview, which we did at 3 months into their adventure, they talk humorously about some of the challenges they encountered – from trying to find a RV suitable for them and their 15 year old son to each have their space and their first day on the road. Shortly after we filmed this, they decided to follow their original dream of moving to Portland, OR and sold the truck & RV. They posted their reasonings on their blog, and with their permission we did a live video chat addressing many of the Realities of Full Time RVing. While full time RVing didn’t turn out to be the right choice for them, they have no regrets in having given it a try ...
  • Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Tacky Texans -> Fruitiny The Tacky Texans - April 2010Meet Brice and Rose In 2010, we met the Tacky Texans – Brice & Rose – during one of our visits to Austin, TX.  This young couple was intrigued by small house living, minimalism and creating a mobile lifestyle.  They had just taken a huge step towards that by purchasing and moving into a travel trailer, but still needed to figure out a mobile income source. We convinced them to join us at the NuRVers Gathering nearby to meet other younger full time RVers, and we got an interview with them there. Fast forward two years later on another visit to Austin, and we had the opportunity to catch up with Brice. He agreed to a follow-up interview to bring us up to date on how that experiment worked, and the exciting new nomadic adventure he had just embarked on. While things didn’t work out as they initially planned (yes, Brice and Rose went their separate ways) this is an inspiring story of being bold enough to keep trying things on until you find what works for you. The video below contains both an initial interview with both of them, and then the 2-year follow-up with Brice.Direct Video Link Follow Fruitiny: Blog: Fruitiny Meet more Ramblings Meet some of the ...

  1. Thanks so much for sharing Tara and Justin with us! After nearly 10 years of fulltime RVing, I am taking the lifestyle for granted. Watching their story re-invigorates me!
