Are you a nomad ?

A few reasons that some are NOMADS. Link to story and photos.

Opera and Ballet are not our true heritage. Take a kid hunting or fishing for a good look at our true Heritage.

Hi there Larry and Betty. Just saying hi. Probably been 3 plus years since we came up to visit you in Colorado on a cold night in a tent when you still had your Oli. 2 years since we have our Airstream and enjoying it. Still have a soft spit for the Olivers and see you do too. Glad they are back in production.

Take Care of Yourselves travel safe Doug and Diane

Those are pretty cute!

I prefer to call myself a "wanderer" , but the dream and desire are the same.

We are so fortunate to be able to do this.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

For all its material advantages, the sedentary life has left us edgy, unfulfilled. Even after 400 generations in villages and cities, we haven’t forgotten. The open road still softly calls, like a nearly forgotten song of childhood.

We invest far-off places with a certain romance. The appeal, I suspect, has been meticulously crafted by natural selection as an essential element in our survival. Long summers, mild winters, rich harvests, plentiful game—none of them lasts forever.

Your own life, or your band's, or even your species' might be owed to a restless few—drawn, by a craving they can hardly articulate or understand, to undiscovered lands and new worlds.

Herman Melville, in Moby Dick, spoke for wanderers in all epochs and meridians. He said, "I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas...."

Maybe it's a little early—maybe the time is not quite yet—but those other worlds, promising untold opportunities, beckon. Silently, they orbit the Sun, waiting.

Carl Sagan
