John Lamb has been on the road since mid-2010. He’s a solo traveler in his late 50s who funds his adventures by picking up workamping jobs around the country that range from hosting campgrounds to building projects.
Since John hit the road, he’s now on his third RV – it’s a classic Goldilocks story. At first he tried a 42′ fifth wheel with 5 slides. It was too big. Then he tried a truck camper. It was too small. Today he’s settled on the perfect solution for him – a converted stealthy cargo trailer outfitted with solar and wind power.
We met up with John as he was passing through town while we were in St. Louis earlier this summer. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the trailer with him – but he agreed to do an interview to share his story, and sent us some pictures to include. Please excuse all the chirping birds that decided to chime in.

Ramblings: Tales from Nomads is intended to introduce you to some amazing people who are living life on their terms by traveling full time.
