We’re back in motion, and it feels good! Being on the move again also re-opens up our intentions to integrate in meet-ups and events along our journey. And as such, we’ve put a few things on the calendar:
The $100 Startup Meet-up – May 17, 7pm – Houston, TX
Chris Guillebeau will soon be touring the country launching his new book, The $100 Startup. As we’re profiled in it, we decided to pop on down to his Houston gig. It’s billed as an interactive casual meet-up (not a book reading or signing). Chris says we’ll be ‘in the circus’ and there ‘might be cupcakes’.
If you’re in the area, this should be a fun and inspiring event to attend – and we’d love to meet up with you there! (No, sorry – we won’t have the bus with us.) Sign-up to get free tickets here.
Happy Hour – May 23 – Austin, TX
We’re hosting a happy hour at our bus on Wednesday, May 23 from 5-8pm. If you’re in the area, we welcome you to stop by for a tour of the bus, to pet Kiki and say hi! We’ll have drinks and snacks, and if there’s interest – a Q&A session might emerge.
More info and to RSVP: Technomadia Austin Happy Hour
Burning Flipside – May 24-28 – Austin Area
We just learned that we’ll be participating in the Austin area Burning Man regional – Burning Flipside (happy dance, flip flops.. wheee!!!). It’s a sold out event, but thanks to serendipity and friends, we’ll be able to attend. We love this event, and being able to participate in this one kinda makes up for likely missing Burning Man itself this year. If you’ll be there too, we’d love to meet up (we’ll likely be out in the open camping area).
We also just put in an offer to host a ‘Tech-Nomadic Living Workshop’ – sort of like our Q&A sessions hosted at Camp Nomadia. It’ll be Saturday morning at 11am.
Technomadia UnRally Thingie – June 7 – 10 – Dixon, MO
Our friend Michael Hargis – an amazing entertainer and bus nut, just bought a festival campground in Missouri. He’s hosting a casual bus & RV rally (called ‘Summertime Bus Rally’) and we’re aiming to be there. We’ll of course be presenting our talks about tech & travel – and Michael’s given us the thumbs up to tempt you to join us there for our own little ‘Technomadia UnRally Thingie”.
Basically, if other technomadic NuRVer minded folks show up, we’ll figure something out based on what everyone is interested in. Kinda unconference style.
The rally fee is just $25 per person, and includes breakfast, dinner, seminars & entertainment (a great deal!). And RV/tent space is available starting at $11/day for dry camping on up to $21/day for full hook-ups. We have no financial interest in this.. we just want to connect with you!
Are you within roaming distance and able to join us for all or part of the weekend? Then please do! We’d love to see you there. Click here for more info – and to sign up, you can either call Michael and/or just let us know.
Gateway Burn – June 14-17 – Eldridge, MO
We’re attending the St. Louis regional Burning Man event, which has always been a good time. We consider this group to be the closest thing we have to a ‘home group’ due to our history with them. This year it’s being held at a campground, and apparently electric hook-ups are available for RVs. If others join up with us, we’ll have an informal ‘Camp Nomadia‘ there, and perhaps even present a talk about life on the road. Or not. We may just kick back, relax and have fun!
Tickets are just $30 per person, and should be available up until a week before the event. Unlike other Burning Man events, this one doesn’t tend to sell out or have nomad-challenging ticket lotteries.
(Note, if you’ve not been to a Burning Man style event before – be sure to do your research in advanced to make sure it’s in line with your values… cuz you know, there might be nekkid people.)
If you can join us for any of the above, please be in touch – email@example.com or by leaving a comment.
After these events, we should be in the St. Louis area for at least a couple of weeks.. and then who knows where from there.
