We’ve got a lot of great stuff upcoming, and places where we’re booked to be. And some of them, we’d love to invite you to meet up with us if you’re in the area too!
Here’s some locations on our radar:
This is our very first Quartzsite winter – and we’re excited to be checking out all the crazy action here. We actually quietly (well, as quietly as a 2-stroke engine can be) pulled in earlier this week, hoping to get a little downtime after the social awesome we had in Borrego for the past few weeks and get some quality time with dear friends in the area.
It mostly worked, we went a whole 24 hours before being ‘discovered’.
But we’re officially announcing our arrival now.. and here’s where you can catch up with us:
Technomadia Hang Out – Friday, Jan 16 – 1-3pm
We’ll be hanging out at Beer Belly Bar for a couple hours – if you’re in the area and would like to say ‘hi’ – stop on by. Don’t be shy.. we’d love to meet you!
Nothing formal, no big ‘gathering’ or presentation. Just a chance to share a hug and say hi. Feel free to stop by, hang out, grab a beer or whatever. (And no, we won’t be fielding tech questions 😉 ).
Beer Belly Bar (aka ‘Adult Day Care’) is just northeast of the ‘Big Tent’ in the Tyson Wells flea market of Kuehn Rd, kinda on the main corridor. Right behind the home made ice cream shack – which you know I’ll be partaking of! We’ll pick a table and be sitting there waiting to say hi. (Chris will be wearing his signature black leather hat.)
Rubber Tramp Rendezvous Q&A – Saturday, Jan 17 – 1pm
The folks over at CheapRVLiving.com host a meet-up in QZ every year, and they’ve asked us to stop by and host a little informal Q&A. This should be pretty casual and low key – just our style. You’re welcome to stop by, and we’ll probably hang around a little afterwards to mingle.

RVillage Meetup – Tues, Jan 20 – 4pm
Curtis, the founder or RVillage.com Curtis (the social network we helped launch in early 2014) is hosting a casual happy hour at the famous Quartzsite Yacht Club (1090 W Main St). This is ironically, the very place we first met Curtis in November 2013, got introduced to his idea for RVillage and agreed to help him launch it.
We’ll stick around Quartzsite long enough to attend this, so come on out to meet up, meet Curtis and some other awesome RVillagers!
We’ll be out and about Quartzsite over the next few days dropping by other events we’ve been invited to, and exploring the big show – if you see us in a public location, do say hi. We really do love meeting our readers.
However, we do ask that if you discover our not-so-secret parking location, that you respect our privacy and not just knock on the door (write us instead, we can usually set up a time to be dressed.) We are trying to get some work done, we sleep odd hours, are often in just our robes at home (or dancing naked) and just really need our alone time to re-charge to be able to be out in public. Thank you!
Tucson, AZ – Escapade – March 8-13
Join Us Here for Free!!
Whew.. this is a biggie for us, and we’re a tad nervous about it. We’ll be making our RV rally speaking debut!
We’ve agreed to present three seminars at Escapee’s 55th Annual Escapade this year in Tuscon. We really loved this group when we randomly stopped by their event in Elkhart last year, so we said yes when they asked if we’d be up for attending and being part of this one.
Here’s what and when we’ll be presenting:
- 10am / Wed, March 11 – The High Tech Nomad – Using technology to enable a mobile lifestyle – from gadgets, toys, mobile internet to alternative energy.
- 11:30am / Wed, March 11 – Beyond Work Camping: Income on the Road – Full-timing isn’t just for retirement. Combine career & travel – from self-employment, temporary gigs to working remotely.
- 3pm / Wed, March 11 – Social Media to Enhance a Mobile Lifestyle – Twitter, Facebook, RVillage, Blogging, Instagram, Google+?!? Use social media for community building and professionally.
Escapade still has boondocking space available (no hook-ups left) if you want to sign up for the entire shindig (they’re really fun.. and we say that not being ‘rally people’). They also have day passes available.
But the extra awesome news is.. Escapee’s is making Wednesday their free Community Day – which means anyone can attend Escapade events at no charge! Coincidence that all our events are booked on that very day? Maybe.
So if you’re in the area, we invite you to come join us, attend our sessions (and sessions of other presenters) and check out an Escapade!
There will also be an informal happy hour after our last presentation (around 4:30 or 5:00p) that you’re welcome to join us for too!
Austin, TX – Wireless Generation Premier – April 2
Long long ago, in what seems like a galaxy (or at least a desert) far far away – Christine & Drew Gilbert of AlmostFearless.com came to Burning Man (with their 9 month old son!!) and joined our Camp Nomadia theme camp in 2010. They interviewed us for this new documentary idea of theirs on digital nomads.
Apparently, we made the final cut and will be making our silver screen debut this spring! We’re super thrilled that mobile working on the road RVers will be represented amongst the worldwide digital nomad community – that’s kinda huge. Ok, yeah.. we’re a tad nervous about that too!
We’ll be aiming to make the film premier in Austin, TX in early April. But they are screening all over the nation if you’d like to catch the show. The DVD and digital download will be available for sale soon after the film tour is done, on June 1st.
Whew.. it’s going to be a busy and exposing winter & spring ahead. Which is why you’ll (hopefully not) find us hiding out in remote location from time to time to work up the energy for all this. We never set out to be minor public figures of RVing and digital nomadism – and here we are presenting and being in a movie. How the heck did this happen??
