Eric and I have kicked off a new weekly Video Podcast on called _The Nomadic Fanatics_
Fridays 6pm Pacific – 9pm Eastern – 0200 GMT

The Nomadic Fanatics will be a video podcast about working people 18-55 who have chosen a nomadic lifestyle, whether that is in an RV of any sort, a van, a boat, AirBnB, or even just a backpack, a business plan, and a thumb.

Being that it’s Thanksgiving, we don’t have a guest lined up for this week, so we’ll take your questions.

In the coming weeks, we’ll have appearances by
* VanGrrl from YouTube talking about her transition to Van Life in the Pacific Northwest
* Jason and Kristin Snow – the Snowmads – who will be attending the RVIA show in Louisville, KY next weekend. They’ll have a wrapup for us on what to expect from the RV Industry in 2016.

We look forward to seeing you all on the show tomorrow night!

RV Fulltiming S1E2

Season 1 Episode 2 of RV Fulltiming on
Scheduled for 60-90 minutes originally, we had such a great panel and audience that we ran long. Three hours long. =)

Feel free to skip around the video, or put it on in the background while you work or play!

In this episode: @YarrVee, @RVLady1, @xsyntriknomad, @Kallistia, and others talking about RVing fulltime, RV Lady’s birthday, Xsyntrinomad’s birthday, what it’s like being a Scorpio, How we all got out start and what made us decide to make the leap to fulltiming, among many, many other topics.

YarrVee Fulltiming Hangout S1 E1

Skip forward to 9:15 for an echo-free experience!!!

After the RV Women’s Hangout on Sunday, we had a quick panel on talking about RVing and about using as a platform for video chat and panels. I wish we’d had more success eliminating the echoes and feedback at the beginning.

We had a few technical issues, but overall it was a grand success!

Let us know what you think!
