The journey started two years ago as an experiment, an inquiry into a lifestyle created by the merging of two historically different paths. We wondered, could we merge an adventurous nomadic lifestyle with a traditional 9-5 business career? What challenges and opportunities would arise? What would we learn? In the end, is it worth it?
In January 2013, we left New England in our 1987 VW Vanagon to live a nomadic lifestyle of simplicity and adventure, while at the same time running a web development company on the road. The journey thus far has taken us on a wild ride of ups and downs including inclement weather, breakdowns, broken bones, new clients, moments of bliss and mind-blowing beauty, and new friends.
What we are learning as we continue down this road, is that embracing the unknown and pursuing dreams are absolutely worth it.
And that we are not alone. There is a passionate, inspiring community of modern nomads that we are fortunate to know through social media and face-to-face meet ups.
Together WE DID IT!
Thank you to so many of you for helping us not only meet but exceed our Kickstarter goal. We are grateful for the outpouring of support including contributions, sharing the campaign, and words of encouragement. We truly feel blessed to be part of this inspiring, courageous community of modern nomads. Together with Idle Theory Bus, and because of YOUR support, we are now on a mission to interview modern nomads in the Southeastern US.
