Hello friends. We are family of five, husband Jared, wife Paige and three children, hailing originally from the southwest before setting out on the path of discovery and adventure on the road.
Jared has spent much of his adult career in the automotive field working as a technician and manager of various automotive facilities. He has extensive administrative, business management, and sales experience. Jared has a deep interest in different cultures and a fascination with the subject of history.
Paige has spent the majority of her time raising the children and working as a performer for an international dance troupe and instructing dance classes when time would allow. She has developed an extensive knowledge and practice of holistic approaches to health and life styles.
We are both very keen on sustainable living and technologies.

We are both avid outdoors lovers, campers, and seekers of knowledge and locations both obscure and mundane. We are open to the human experience and all of the wonderful personalities that entails. We recently spent some time traveling and camping in the wilderness and came to the realization that the normal city living rat race lifestyle was not for us. There is a serene beauty and peace in the remote places of the world, unblemished by man that beckons the soul and connects us to the divine. Of all things we wish to impart to our children, the memories of a road well traveled to new places, ideas and faces is one we strive for the most.

We set out on the nomadic lifestyle not fully knowing what to expect, but also not carrying any regrets. Our experience so far has been very enlightening and filled with unexpected twists and turns which served to strengthen our familial bonds and grow as individuals. We hope to see more of the places we love in search of that ever elusive spot to call home.

Zia Gypsy's Rig

24 ft 2011 Skyline Nomad Travel Trailer. Full amenities, gray and black water tanks, shower, sink, oven, gas and propane operated refrigerator. We've outfitted it with a pure sine wave inverter and utilize two Renogy solar panels with a smart controller to assist in keeping the batteries charged. The trailer has no slide-outs nor catchy decorations. We tow it with a 2011 Nissan Pathfinder which I have wired a brake controller into along with utilizing an adjust trunion bar sway control hitch system for maximum safety and stability.
