A little intro for #makermonday

I'm Becky and the gorgeous boy to my left is Bubba. A year ago I sold my house and let go of almost everything I own to live in a van and travel. Bubba and I just celebrated our one-year #vanniversary last week! 🚐 I'm still working on an epic title for myself, but for now, I think it's fair to say that I'm the Nomad at Nomadic Knits. ⠀

Like most of us, I've always been a maker. Many years ago now, I taught myself to knit. I loved the textures and colors and that I could take my projects anywhere. Fast forward some years and I became quite ill. Along the road to recovery, I needed a project to keep me inspired, so I opened a yarn shop (like you do) - The Glitter Ninja✨ . This is where I really fell in love with the fiber world!⠀

I'm currently reading about six different books. I wish I was bragging, but it's really just a bad habit. I probably won't finish half of them🤷🏻♀ I love anything having to do with Sherlock Holmes and have recently begun the Veronica Speedwell series. Crime-solving female badasses are my favorite. Hello, Jessica Fletcher?!?! I also read quite a bit in the personal development genre. You Are A Badass and Miracle Morning are recent favorites. ⠀

I have a degree in music & theatre and grew up working in the auto recycling industry. I can operate a loader AND conduct a symphony. It's called balance🤣 I'm music obsessed and have somehow justified traveling with a synth, a ukelele, and a giant accordion in a 126 sq ft van. Suffice it to say, I'm probably not the most reasonable person you're ever going to meet. But I give big hugs and will laugh at all your jokes, so hopefully we can be friends anyway?⠀

If you want to hear more about my #shevanigans with Bubba, you can check out @thecuriousadventures
I also have an (almost never written in) blog that tells a bit more of the story of how we ended up in a van☺⠀

We gathered a massive amount of firewood to celebrate our 8 month vanniversary. Unfortunately, the Colorado fire bans prevented us from building that epic campfire 😕 Next time!

🎉🥂6 months today since I left #thesix and headed west. Vancouver, you have been so good to me, and I feel so thankful for the life I am living. It’s quite unbelievable where your road can lead and who you can become as a result of following your heart and taking a leap of faith! #lovemylife #lovethiscountry #grateful #vanniversary

wishing a happy 1 year #vanniversary to this old gal. looking forward to many more adventures (and less fires pls) ahead!!! 🚐🔥 #PinotParks @vanthropologie #westybestie #DCA #reflashwatch

1 year #vanniversary

Forever grateful to live and play on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. This coast is one of the most precious places on earth. Possessing the world’s largest contiguous stretch of temperate rain forest, it harbours some of the oldest trees and the greatest biomass density of any ecosystem on the planet. 🌲🐻🌊🐙🐳✨ #Vanniversary #11years #stopkindermorgan

It's my one-year vanniversary, and boy has this past year been a learning experience! Overall, it's been pretty wonderful, but I will say that warranty work has become the bane of my existence. In truth, it's a small price to pay. When I began this adventure, I had no idea how long it would last. And I still don't. But I can say this: there is no end in sight. I have so much more to see and so much more to learn. I am most content heading down the road and look forward to exploring the rest of North America.

I finally wrote a blog post and the intention is to catch everyone up on the events of the past year. I'd love to share information that would be helpful to fellow and aspiring vanlifers, so let me know what you want to hear about!

Gearing up for #warpedtour by listening to an album made the same year as our van, which we got four years ago today! #vanniversary #dookie #greenday #greenhair #privateinstigators #tourlife #punkrock #music @billiejoearmstrong @mikedirnt @trecool @greenday

Greta the van turned 1 last week! Having the camper van has brought me so much joy, and I’m always thinking about ways to improve it. The latest project included adding a hinged piece of plywood to fit an extra piece of mattress, so my tall friends like @ctisch17 and @fieldstoferries can sleep comfortably! #vanniversary #overlandvanproject #vanlife #campervan #vanconversion

Yesterday was our 1 YEAR VANNIVERSARY!!!
---
Last year, we flew up to Michigan to buy Comvee (well, the name came later) and spent our July 4th driving back down to Austin, enjoying about 7 or 8 firework shows along the way. We started the build right away (yes, we BOTH built it) and hit the road 4 months later! I can't begin to describe how much we love this lifestyle. If you're considering #vanlife YOU SHOULD DO IT!!!! 🚐

Sending a huge thank you to all the friends, family, and strangers that have continued to follow and encourage our travels. @adventurebravely

Happy #Vanniversary to us! One year ago today, we brought this beast home, and our lives changed for the better! We’ve made little tweaks since then - adding a bed, moving seats around to best fit our family - and for now, this system works. We LOVE having the Sprinter for camping trips, and it’s fun to pile in all of our family and friends when we need a shuttle. The boys love riding high and checking out the scenery from our big ol’ windows. If you ever see us on the road, give us a big wave! 👋🏼🚐 #neversaysomeday #vanlife #sprinter #sprintervan #anniversary #vanniversary #roadwarrior #tbt

#mydogismy #rayofsunshine these are all oldies but goodies. Tomorrow is a day for new photos. We are positioned in a jumping off point to our destination (overnight parking 😉 #vanlifedogs ) and tomorrow we plan to revisit our summer tradition of striking the town and beach, eating tacos on a patio, and having a campfire together. There will be presents involved. I do not know for sure if there will be cell signal, but pictures will come eventually ... This dog, crazy goodball that she is, is the most sensitive creature I’ve ever met. I know she responds not only to changes in my behavior, but to changes in my breathing and heart rate and her instinct when there’s turmoil has always been to calm and charm and soothe, she’s just a natural (where as Ausker needs soothing and Wally was living his own life, thanks). As well as being her birthday it’s also Mae’s #vanniversary she’s pretty precious to us, so thanks for reading 😊#dogsofinstagram #chihuahuasofinstagram #chihuahualife

Pretty sure it's been a one year #vanniversary of living the #vanlife with #GONZO. Here I am waking up again at a North Dakota #nodak rest area, traveling, still reading and enjoying the "World's Book'!

Celebrating our two month vanniversary and Canada Day in the rain ☺🐺🚐🇨🇦

Today is our one year vaniversary! One year ago we embarked on the most grand journey. While we knew our lives would be forever changed, we couldn’t imagine just how fruitful this life choice would be. One year of rugged adventures, awe-inspiring vistas, and countless sweet moments of bliss together. Inspired to live a simple life, we have found what it means to really be free. To live a life we love. To be where we want to be when we want to be. Because our home travels with us! She has everything we need inside, nothing more and nothing less. We feel complete and our life is truly fulfilling. Today we celebrate our own independence day. Cheers to many more sweet experiences!🚐👫🍾🎉🌎🙏
