This is a question that is asked all the time to those, like myself, who choose to enjoy the adventure, excitement and educational experiences of life on the road.
While the human species began it's existence as a nomadic creature, over the 100,000 plus years, humans have become, for the most part, a more fixed location, domesticated member of the animal kingdom. However, there are some people who still exhibit that nomadic gene from the beginning of human time on this planet. The nomadic characteristic is evident in both genders.
Recently, I was one of the subjects of a video documentary available on YouTube titled, Ed & The Aberts: Van Dweller and Cargo Conversion. Additionally, after the video footage was shot, but prior to the public release of the documentary, I was a guest, by phone, on WRVC, a Huntington, West Virginia radio station. And, the subject was vagabonding or being a nomad.
While this lifestyle is not something new, people still seem to be fascinated by the concept of such a lifestyle and the people enjoying this alternative lifestyle. It is my opinion that there is a continual growth in the number of people downsizing, minimalizing, economizing and becoming a nomad of their own description. Many, like me, live in a van, utility trailer, old school bus and any number of others RV configurations.
I requested a copy of the radio interview from the station and I present it here for your listening enjoyment and hopefully your enlightenment about, at least, one of the individuals adopting such an alternative lifestyle.
Here is that interview. Just press the play arrow and you'll be able to listen to the program.
