More importantly, it’s been 10 Years since we hit the road!
Ten Year RV Lifestyle Anniversary
I’ve never really cared for the term “nomadiversary” but June 2nd, 2017 marked ten years since the day we drove away and embarked on our new nomadic lifestyle. My how time flies…
I will never forget finally pulling away from the curb after the stressful sale of our business and all our planning and preparation, only to burst out in laughter for no apparent reason other than pure joy. Our travels have since taught us how laughing on purpose can help soothe any situation, but there I go digressing again.
Highlights from a Decade Full-timing
What has been the best part of your travels? Where are your favorite places? We get these questions all the time. I hate these questions. Why? It’s all good. OK, there have been some hard times and close calls, but this life is what we make of it and I learned early on to make the most of it.
Of course, there are certain places, people and events that stand out for me from our first decade of wandering. From those dear friends we left behind at our send-off, who will always be in our hearts…
…to the Nü friends we’ve met online and on the road.
In fact, we’ve met quite a few fun characters along the way. Some who enlightened and entertained us.
And some that make us feel like family.
Places we prefer? There are few that feel more like home than Vickers Ranch.
And always, “Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain’t nobody feelin’ no pain…”
But I will never forget that month we spent in Basin and Range one week!
It all began back in 2007, at our first workamping job on White Rabbit Acres organic farm.
And Riverbend Hot Springs was another most memorable workamping job.
We’ve found all our favorite workamping jobs thanks to our Workamper News Gold membership.
As for events, the most memorable have been made by the music.
Ever since the first time we saw Ray Wylie at the Alpine Artwalk benefit, we’ve been keeping an eye out for him and never miss a chance to catch him live.
My favorite entertainment, however, has to be enjoying the sounds of miss Rita Lim in the Parlor Lounge at the El Cortez with Joey Ugarte and the Jazz Vibrations.
A couple other experiences stand out, and they also happened on Fremont Street or nearby. First there was my best birthday ever, with Sam and Tracy.
Then there was another best birthday celebration with Ari and Kim.
Which brings us to the food…oh so many good eats everywhere! Where to begin?
Not to mention the so many fine dive bars and drinking establishments out there!
We’re clearly going to need another ten years to find and enjoy more of all the good food, drink and fun the road has to offer.
Won’t you join us along the way?
