Live, Work, Dream

Updated on March 7, 2012

Live the Digital Nomad Lifestyle

No, you don't need to win the lotto or be a trustafarian. You only need an entrepreneurial drive and a sense of adventure..

If we can do it, you can too! We are two young, working-age full-time RV travelers who roam North America in search of new scenery and fun. See how we do it with our tips for making money from home as a full-time RVer, snowbird, nomadic worker or rural resident.

We Live Our Road Trip Dream, You Can Too!

Learn how two non-retired young RVers make money traveling

In 2007, our way of life changed forever when doctors told us that our beloved dog Jerry had just four months to live.

He had bone cancer, and even if we amputated his leg, the prognosis wasn't good. He might live four to six months before the cancer would take over his body. It was a terrible shock to us; we never even knew dogs got cancer! At just eight years old, Jerry still had a lot of living to do, and that's when we realized, so did we.

So after many months of careful preparation and planning, we sold everything we owned, including our house and business, to help pay for a year-long sabbatical and one final gift to Jerry: the road trip of a lifetime.

We bought a new RV and Dodge truck, and hit the road to finally live the life we dreamed of. Jerry thrived for two beautiful years, and after he earned his wings under the big Yellowstone skies, we realized that we wanted our road trip to continue indefinitely.

In our usual entrepreneurial spirit, we investigated many different paths to making a living online, and three years later, we know utilize several different ways to make money to fund our road tripping lifestyle.

Whenever we talk to strangers about our lifestyle, the inevitable question always arises: "So, what do you do for a living?" People size us up and draw their own conclusions unless we take the time to share how to make a living on the road.

What was supposed to be a one year road trip for our best friend is now a way of life, thanks to the interesting people we've encountered along the way, and the remote income opportunities we've discovered. It's our goal to present these opportunities to you, so that you can also live your own road tripping dream and turn your passion into a profitable adventure!
