Back in September/October, we had the pleasure of rendezvousing with her in Telluride, and now, here we are in White Sands, NM....Heather Grow, 28, like NOMAD 1 is originally from Virginia, and she's been on the road full time for 4 months. She lives out of a '03 Ford F-350 conversion van in around 72 sq ft. She built out the inside on her own....A defining moment of her life was her mother's untimely passing when Heather was only 13. "I wear my mothers high school ring every single day. It helps me appreciate life and all that I'm able to do. Everyday out on the road makes me feel like I'm living for her, going places she never got the chance to. Her absence of life keeps me grounded and connected to each moment," she told me. "I am pursuing a greater version of myself. Sure, I’m trying to find avenues to propel my passion of photography and i want to have work that can give me even more financial freedom.But all of that is nothing in comparison to my drive to work each day to become a better woman. With each passing day on the road i find more clarity, my mind declutters, and I’m able to focus on things that have true substance and meaning. Slowly I’m stripping away old bad habits and ways of thinking, I’m living in the moment, and avoid dwelling on past mistakes or the future’s unknowns. My mental, emotional, and physical freedom is the greatest and most beneficial pursuit I’ve ever had the privilege of taking on...."The only constant in life is change. I don’t know what next week, month, or year will bring. What I do know is I love traveling, the lifestyle that I’m settling in to, and I’m going to do it as long as it feels like the best path for life."

We hit it off immediately because her sweet rescue dog Shasta took to our crazy girls right away, and vis a versa. She’s from Minnesota, doing the snow bird thing this winter... didn’t expect to get snow and freezing temps in Texas....She's been traveling solo cross country for a little over three months in a 17’ travel trailer. All in all about 80 sq ft of livable space....Her journey is about freedom and seeing the beautiful world around her. “Well I told myself I had a year when I left and budgeted for that but the more I’m doing this I don’t know how I can go back! This is the life!”..."There are so many places to see! I get so excited when I’m on the road! It gives me life! I also learn so much about myself! And I’m falling more in love with who I am everyday!"
