Caravan Connections -“A Wonderful Source”

Being part of a community is important even when we cannot meet in person. HOWA’s Caravan Connections with Zoom meetings on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, are a popular way to get to know fellow nomads. Everyone is welcome to join and participate! The Caravans use both Meetup and Zoom so participants must sign up for Zoom and Meetup.

 A few thoughts from a recent Sunday Morning Women’s Coffee Connection:

    First time on site. Is this a stock photo or real nomad? I believe that truck cost more than I paid for my land & the woman looks like she can afford it. I was initially intrigued by what I read about your vision. If this is a representation of homes on wheels, I’m disappointed.

      Hi Janis, It is a beautiful photo! It is a real nomad who travels in a cargo trailer she built out herself. She pulls it with the truck in the photo. It does look pretty amazing, I agree! She is a digital nomad and is able to work on the road. But, I think you will find that there are all sorts of people in our community. There are nomads that are struggling financially but there are also those that have a little more padding financially. There are young, old, men, women, working, retired, as well as car dwellers, van dwellers, and RV dwellers. There are also those that live in tents. Some live on public land and others stealth camp in town. There is quite a wide variety of all sorts and types. Some are outgoing and there are many introverts. I welcome you to explore more of the YouTube videos on the Homes On Wheels Alliance channel. You will see many more examples of the nomads in our community by visiting the CheapRVLiving YouTube channel and a host of others. Thanks for your comment!

    How can I attend the caravans via a telephone call rather than via Zoom video? I don’t have the Zoom app, and I don’t intend to. Thank you.

      Laura, Zoom is the only way we currently have our caravans. Once the pandemic is no longer a threat, we will resume face to face caravans. One thing you can do, but it is still through Zoom is to use the phone only access. You won’t have access to the video portion but it would act as a conference call of sorts.

    Hello, i’ve watched a lot of cheaprvliving videos with great interest. I have an old van i’m trying to fix up with a bed, etc, to use on spring break when my grandson is on spring break. I have 2 questions. Firstly, is it possible to nomad with children in school? Secondly, what do you do if there is a tornado warning? Where do you go for safety?

      How lucky your grandson is that you are going to spend time with him! AND, he gets to see how you have made your van useable! Clever Grandma! There are those that are nomad families with children. The ones I am familiar with mostly homeschool the children. Otherwise, you would travel while the school is on break or arrange for travel time with the teacher. My experience is that a teacher will provide lessons for a period of time to keep the student current while they are out of the classroom.

      Tornados!! Yikes! I would suggest you Google what to do in a tornado warning if you are traveling. Safe travels!

    Hello all, I have been in Covid isolation for the past 12 months. I am now vaccinated and hitting the road to Arizona. I am wondering if there are others who are vaccinated and wishing to join a Safe Caravan experience.
