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 – Our Take On Freedom Meet Ayo & Yair Yair and Ayo both grew up in the Bronx, went to the same high school and started dating when they were 19 (after friending each other on Facebook!). Armed with college degrees, they both were up and coming in the business world – him a financial advisor on Wall Street, and her a management consultant. They looked at themselves dressed in business suits and decided that’s not who they wanted to be. They had the remarkable maturity to start living frugally to put away 2/3 of their income – thinking this would afford them ‘2 years of freedom for every 1 year worked’. By February 2009, at the age of 24, they had both quit their jobs and lined up an amazing 2-month work-exchange position at a resort in the Dominican Republic. When they came back, they decided they want to RV across America to see more of their own country.. this is what they’ve been doing since. They share a lot of tips of living on the road, frugal living, work exchange bartering and finding freedom. Update: Just after we filmed this interview, changes were already under way for these two. In late August 2012, they publicly announced they had ...
- Ramblings: Tales from Nomads – What’s Newell? Meet Clarke & Elaine Hockwald Clarke & Elaine took retirement as early as they could at age 62, after realizing their investments and house were declining in value. They decided there really was no perfect time to live their dreams, and instead trust that they could make it all come together. Clarke has some insurance agent business he handles part time on the road, and the two supplement their social security by seeking out workamping positions – such as hosting at campgrounds or working at an Amazon.com facility for several weeks to pad the diesel fund. They found an early 1980s Newell coach, a custom built high end motorhome, for super affordable – and tow a car trailer behind that serves as a bike garage for Clarke. These two are out having the time of their lives, and share some of the lessons they’ve learned during their first year on the road. Direct Video Link Follow Clarke & Elaine: Blog: What’s Newell?
