The not-so-hard drive

Since June of last year, my husband, Jim Nelson, and I have been wandering around the U.S. in our RV, working on our newest business ventures along the way. When we first hit the road, some people told us we would get bored with the RV lifestyle because we wouldn't have a lot in common with the stereotypical full-time, retired RVer. But the reality is, thanks to the Internet, we've actually met a fair amount of younger, non-retired RVers who also have opted for a truly mobile, nomadic lifestyle.

I'm not talking hippies in school buses or hitchhiking weirdoes. These are working age people who are touring North America and beyond, while supporting themselves with Internet-based work along the way. With better mobile broadband options every day, the stereotypical retired RVer may soon be a thing of the past.

Carol White, author of the book “Live Your Road Trip Dream,” calls us “the new guard of RVers,” and Jim and I are just two of maybe thousands out there. We still make money from the road through our blogs and book publishing ventures, but because we live out of our RV, we are completely mobile and free to do business wherever we want, whenever we want. In our travels, we've met many other younger RVers who are doing the same thing.
