We've met a wide variety of people since we hit the road. They're interesting, generous, and fun. It's the fellow nomads that help create a community despite us always being on the move.

Below are fellow nomads we’ve met. We've listed their websites/Instagram/Facebook so that you have the opportunity to read their stories and get to know them, too.

Jen, Randy, Kalden and Lars are another family that we've been following on social media for awhile. They are really into cycling, so it made sense that we met them in Fruita, CO at the North Fruita Desert trail system (May 2017).

Megan contacted us for a Live Small | Ride Free sticker. After she received the sticker Megan sent us a really nice hand-written note. It turned out her and her husband, Ian, are in the process of hitting the road with their dog, Brewer, and cat, Monster. While we were in Washington (where they were living) we met up and spent the day hanging out (October 2016).

Jerud met Jeanette and Eric when he went to dump and fill up our fresh water tank in La Verkin, UT (April 2016) while Tybee and I were back at camp saving our boondocking spot.

The meeting was brief, but we hope to see them again sometime down the road.
