We love keeping in touch with other nomadic minded folks and hearing of their adventures to a location independent lifestyle. Here’s an update of some of the nomads launching on new adventures right now that you might also be interested in following :
- Picture Route 66 – Photographer Sandi Wheaton was laid off from her job with GM earlier this year, and took the opportunity to explore her wanderlust along Route 66 and explore a possible full time mobile lifestyle. She bought herself a small A-liner trailer and is currently traversing Route 66 doing time lapse photography and photo documentation using obsolete infrared film along an obsolete highway. We’re making plans to greet her at the finish line here in Southern California in just a couple of weeks.
- Living In My Car – Jennifer is currently in the process of selling her home in Austin, TX and embarking on a solo adventure to the Artic in an RV. We’re inspired by her courageous attitude to actively explore her own internal journey.
- Kaleidoscopic Wandering – JoAnna has been gearing up her career to be location independent. She’s just taken the leap from office worker to freelance writer. We loved meeting her via the Digital Vagabond Road’s Scholarship program over the summer, and camping with her at Burning Man.
- We Go Far – Jonathan and Dasy have broken free of their home and jobs in the Washington, DC area, and just launched off on their adventures of full time RV living! We enjoyed meeting them earlier this summer while we were in DC and are so excited for the adventures ahead of them. Hope our paths cross again soon!
- Where is Ben? – Our good friend Ben Willmore is embarking today on the next major adventure of his long term full time traveling lifestyle – retrofitting a vintage 1963 Flxible Starliner bus to be his new full time home. For the past 3.5 years he’s been traveling in a 40′ luxury tour bus. We’re so excited to see him getting his wheels spinning on this project after many months of searching for the right bus. He’s picking up the new old bus today in Ohio, and then driving the full length of Route 66 back to California where the conversion will occur over the next year or so. We can’t wait to see it – what an epic project!
Best wishes to all our nomadic peers – see you out there on the road!
