Meet Justin, Tara & Zeb
When 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 – Tacky Texans -> Fruitiny Meet 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.

- Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – Over Yonderlust Meet Erica & Shaun Erica and Shaun are our first Ramblings who are nomads, but not traveling in an RV. They’re in their late 20s and planned for four years to escape their jobs working at a video game company to start budget traveling the world. They cut their expenses to live off one person’s income, and used the rest to pay off debts and stock some cash away for their adventures. When we spoke with them in June, they had just completed their first year on the road – traveling throughout Latin America. They share a lot of their tips and tricks for planning, preparing and experiencing. They started a blog to see if it would stick, and have been able to supplement their savings with income generated by their online efforts to afford to do the more expensive fun stuff – like getting SCUBA certified. When we spoke with them in Austin they were back for a few months to focus on re-stocking the bank account. In a couple weeks they start their next extended adventure of exploring Europe, starting with a stop in Iceland.
