Our story!

For several years now I have had the urge to travel which has been a dream of mine before marriage and children. My husband was never keen on the idea until one afternoon in 2016 he said, "let's do this!" The next day I began to sell, donate and give away items from my home. He was a bit shocked when he got home from work. I immediately called a realtor and our home sold within 24 hours for more than we were asking. I had sold, donated and given away EVERYTHING so that the day we moved we didn't even need a truck. We were able to drive away with everything we had left in both our vehicles. We moved to a smaller place directly across from the beach to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets for the following year before taking off to travel full time!

Setting up our Napier Outdoor Tent

This video was taken before we retired in 2018. When we first began planning to be nomads I personally wanted to do a tent. My sweet husband really wanted to make that happen for me. We found a tent online on Amazon that would attach to our van. He built a fantastic bed in the van and the room in the tent was great. It was glamorous camping as far as I was concerned.

We evacuated from one of the hurricanes headed to Florida and set up camp in Unicoi State Park. This was our first time putting this tent up with the help of my son and his wife. We had such a fantastic experience and I was even more excited about our future plans of being nomads!
