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 – What’s Newell? IMG_6340Meet 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.

  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!
