This site organizes by topic and category all the videos, Web pages, blogs, etc. of real people living the mobile lifestyle.

If youíre a full-time nomad, thinking of becoming one, or are just interested in the lifestyle, then youíre in the right place.

Here youíll find just about everything you need to know straight from the mouths of experienced full-time nomads.

Learn how to earn money on the road, avoid making expensive mistakes, and deal with the ups and downs.

Even if the lifestyle isn't for you, you can still share the adventures of those who have taken the plunge.

Iíve always been a nomad at heart. Iím a baby-boomer so when I was young, driving to a place 3 hours away was like going to the other side of the planet. Now I drive 24 hours to see the grandkids. I drive so that I can enjoy all there is to see between Points A and B. For me there is no Ďfly-over zoneĒ.

Because of my interest in foreign languages, Iíve had a career that gave me lots of opportunities to travel around the country and the world. I even got to live in Austria with my wife and four children for three years! I was born in Maine but have also lived in Massachusetts, Illinois, Germany, Spain, Austria and now Alabama. Iíve been to 46 of the 50 US states (the rest are on my bucket list) and to 19 countries.

Because of the way Iíve prioritized things in my life, I opted for a stable lifestyle that maximized the time that I could spend with my family. I didnít pursue the life of a nomad because not all of my family members share my wanderlust.

Well, the kids have all left the nest and Iíll be retiring in a couple of years (itís what baby-boomers are doing nowadays) so I plan to indulge more in my nomadic tendencies. My wife isnít a nomad at heart, but she likes to participate in equine endurance rides where you compete with others in a 50-mile ride on a horse (yes, on a horse!). These competitions are all over the country so that will be part of my nomadic experience as I follow the endurance riding circuit.

In preparation for retirement, I'm now starting my second career dedicated to RV life with Nomad Dog. After retirement I'll still need to earn money to support my wife's horse habit. I also love riding my recumbent trike long distances so Iíll visit locations with biking trails and go to rallies. And then thereís kayaking on rivers, lakes, and oceans.

So many places to experience!
