On December 17, 2018, my partner Tzadik and I left Boulder, CO, in a 29-foot RV: the Thor Four Winds 5000, circa 1996. Most of our belongings were in storage; the rest were still a mess in the back of the RV. We didn’t know where we were sleeping that night, much less where we were heading over the next few months and beyond. What we did know: we wanted to discover a life of meaningful adventure. A fulfilling way to offer our gifts — whatever they might be. We wanted to surrender ourselves to the flow of the Universe, set our sails to the winds of grace, and open fully to life. And, of course, have a lot of fun.
At first, life on the road was tough. We had a LOT to learn. Where did everything go? How much could fit in the RV fridge? Where should we flip the circuit breaker when we ran the electric kettle without remembering to turn off the space heater? How often did we need to dump our waste tanks, and where? How could we get enough private time while sharing less than 200 square feet? How could we reconcile our individual dreams and ambitions into a unified plan? Where were we welcome to park? How could we stay held in community when we moved so often?
Slowly, oh so slowly, patterns and visions started to emerge. They’re still emerging.
A little about us: we're a non-smokers, non-drinkers, daily meditators, health food lovers, and yoga teachers. Tzadik is the founder of Earth Walk, a global peace organization on a mission to help usher in a culture of peace on this planet. Together, the two of us are working to create conscious connection events as we travel, and launch a movement helping to create a more loving justice system. In the recent past, Rachel was editor-in-chief of Conscious Company magazine, whose mission is to redefine success in business in service of all life, and was on the board of the Impact Hub coworking space in downtown Boulder, CO.
We're well-organized, responsible, loving, and great communicators.
Tzadik and I teach conscious connection and peace practices workshops and are generally good for some very stimulating conversation and tools for having a deep connection.
We're still learning! We just had a great time boondocking at Burning Man...
The last place I called home was Boulder, CO, where I lived from 2011-2018. These days I get my mail at a friends' house near there, and don't have a long-term home. I'm originally from Silver Spring, MD, right outside Washington, DC.
29.5 foot Class C Four Winds 5000 RV, towing a Honda Fit using a tow dolly. We prefer not to back up if possible, but can unhitch the car as needed and may do so if we're staying a few days. The RV is about 12 feet high. The total rig is about 46 feet long when the car is in tow.
