NüRVers Gathering 2010: Day 1

Hill Shade has been steadily filling up to capacity with NuRVers, and today was the "official" kick-off of the 2nd annual rally! It's been SO MUCH FUN living in this temporary nomadic community...side by side with other "young" full-time travelers. There is much information to glean and endless inspiration to share.

One of our favorite aspects of a gathering like this is the diverse mix of people. There is a lot of "geekiness" here, as you might expect, because most of us use computers in some way to make a living. And there is a lot of "granola"...as many of us are vegetarian and are into sustainability. There are also many motorcycle-drivers, margarita-drinkers, photography buffs, animal-lovers, and Vibram FiveFinger wearers. Be sure to watch the video above to "meet" everyone here!


We kicked off the day at 4:30 p.m. with happy hour and announcements...and then rolled into a "crowd-sourced" Tex-Mex themed meal at 6:30 p.m. The food...oh the FOOD! It was amazing. After that, there was lot of stimulating conversation, campfire & marshmallows, more margaritas, and flaming poi spinning by Cherie!

We're looking forward to an amazing weekend...there is a lot of cool stuff planned! I have taken lots of photos already and I will work on getting them posted soon...along with a daily update. And if you've been reading our blog for any time at all, you will know that it's a BIG DEAL for me to post something the within the same day. Or the same week for that matter. So you KNOW I must really be having fun!

If you have a Twitter account and want to follow along, search for #NURV and you'll be able to see everyone's tweets! If you don't have a Twitter acccount, what are you waiting for?!

There is also a new NüRVers Flickr group that will have photos of all NüRVer events.

Our photo gallery is here and the Flickr set is here.

Im SO JEALOUS!! Wish we were there! Looks like you all are having lots of fun!

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterThat Crazy Family

I'm JEALOUS too!

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMeghan

Looks like a blast! You seem to find all the places with the most fun. ;-)

My question is: how do all these young people afford such HUGE motorhomes?! I assume they have houses as well. Thanks.

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChickadee

Wow.. I'm so glad your daily posting, Sara. Means I don't have to :)

@Chickadee - all of us here are full timers, and our RVs are our main homes. Most of us have sold our sticks & bricks, or rented them out. Even a huge luxury motorhome is cheaper than most houses, and all of us are working while traveling in some way to afford our lifestyles. And not all of us are in huge motorhomes, some of us are in tiny little eggs :)

As my friend would say when she is jealous of something, "I am such a jelly-cat." I wish I was there (6 more years to go until we can).

The video was classic - I loved it! Especially all the dancing.

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHethir

Thanks for this fun video! Really great to be able to put some faces and dance moves with the Nu names.

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLouise

Great video! You've really captured the spirit of the event with this post.

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

This is my ultimate desire and after a few years of toying with the idea... my husband and I have decided to sell off our MANY unneeded items, pay off our debts, and prepare ourselves over the next year buy us an RV and take our 5 kids (already home/unschooled) and DO IT!!!! Thanks for the inspiration!! I already run my own biz from home so that makes earning a living even easier out on the road!! :-))) Can you say "national craft shows"??? LOL

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHeather Milburn

Wow, looks like fun, and great viddie!
Oh and what a lot of couples with monster buses,
Don't guess there are any single RVers there?

April 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDale

Dale...
Thanks! I guess I don't think of them as "monster buses" anymore. When you live in them full time, it's a very tiny apartment! :) There are no single travelers here right now, but there are definitely some out there!
