People who year for the freedom of travel have two major ways of doing it. One is by land, two is by sea.
A lot of people hit the road in everything from stealth converted vans to monster sized motor homes with a bunch of slide outs.
There are people out on the water in everything from 16 foot trailer sailers to boats so large you could load the 16 foot trailer sailer on top of it -along with the trailer and the tow vehicle.
This winter my lovely wife and I are doing a mixture of camping and sailing so it’s by land and by sea for us.
Nomads have other forms of travel. Just think of all the people who are hiking the Appalachian or Pacific Coast Trails. No giant vehicles for them. In fact, most of those folks carry less than 20 pounds of gear.
People travel the world on bicycles or motorcycles. I bet it would be fun on little scooters.
Then there are people on long trips in kayaks or canoes. One year my lovely wife and I sailed down the west coast of Florida all the way to the Keys. We met a young couple doing basically the same trip. However, they were traveling in a cheap sit on top plastic kayak. Ah, to be young and insane. I told the young man to take very very good care of his girlfriend. Guys willing to have that sort of adventure are a dime a dozen. Women willing to put up with it are one in a million.
A true vagabond will hop a freight train with their tiny bundle of essentials. I was wondering how fun it might be to upscale the experience. How about a coach class rail pass and a backpack with camping gear?
Are there any folks out there having adventures traveling around with amphibian sport planes? Seems like that would be fun.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
