I think that profiling other nomads we’ve encountered and what they’re up to will become a regular feature here. I just love meeting others embarking on these great adventures, and sharing their stories. And our readers seem to appreciate the introductions too.
So, here are some folks we’d like to introduce you to this month:
HiTek Homeless – Johnny and Jenn are two 30-something geeks who got fed up with the cubicle world and set off adventuring in a truck camper. They just celebrated their two year nomadiversary, and are currently workamping like us at amazon.com – but in the Nevada location. They also run the website FreeCampSites.net – which is an awesome resource for finding cheap and free camping. We are thankful that a fellow reader introduced us, and hope to cross paths in the future!
Mobile Kodgers – We were introduced to Randy via a post featuring us over on MyShrikingLife.com. I spent the other evening reading back over months of his posts, and was quick to determine that Randy is awesome – he’s traveling in a stealthy boondockable trailer out meeting amazing people and getting their stories. And it turns out, when I wrote him – he was at East Jesus, where we just left after being introduced to Container Charlie! How’s *that* for nomadic serendipity??
Mountainborn Chronicles – Larry and Betty are fellow Oliver Travel Trailer owners who we met on the trailer’s forums when we were considering ordering ours. They have always been so generous with their time in helping us. Part of the reason we came to Kansas was to finally meet up with them, as they’re workamping here too. We’re actually parked just down the street from them. Larry retired from the police force earlier this year, and now they’re out traveling the country workamping and geocaching along the way.
Live Collar Free – Many folks who frequent nomadic and lifestyle design blogs are familiar with James Schipper aka NomadRIP. A nomadic spirit himself, he’s invested a lot of effort in being a frequent contributor to the twittersphere and blogoshere around these topics – and we’ve been honored that he pokes around here. He’s recently quietly launched his own blog where we can start returning the gratitude!
If you know of other nomads or are one yourself – or even if you’re aspiring to be and starting to blog about it – don’t be shy about introducing yourself!
