Hi, my name is Nick Marx and I have chose to live in my vehicle for the past 8 months. I will use this blog to share my journey as I experience the exciting and liberating lifestyle of living full-time as a vehicular nomad. I also hope to inspire others to live outside of their comfort zone and serve as a resource to the community. All posts will be labeled with the following categories: Advice/Inspiration, Philosophy, Financial and Featured Weekly Spot.

Finding Peace (Philosophy & Inspiration)
For several years
after graduating from Keene State college I dare not go near that town. If I
ever had to go by it, I would take the long way around as to avoid even passing
through it. The reason being the pain, shame and failure I associated with my
college experience and the physical space that insulated it from the outside
world. I won't go into the details as to why I felt this way as it would be less of a blog post and more of a novella! Today however was different. Today I sought it out going out of my way to drive to Keene and
eat at the dining commons where I am now typing this blog entry. I noticed as
I walked down the main through faire on campus that was head was on a swivel,
taking in all of the familiar angles of buildings in which I attended classes, lost
my mind, experienced passionate romances and fleeting connections alike and even
presented the cumulative work of my time spent as an undergrad. Unlike my last
visit to campus I was in a clear headspace and I was alone, and to my great
satisfaction I felt a peace within me, like a crystal clear pool of cool water,
unmolested, high above in the forested craigs of Mount Monadnock. I had made
peace with this space, and it was moving, causing tears to well in my eyes as I
smiled and thought on all of the progress I had made and growth I had experienced since walking this very
path on graduation day five years prior.
Keep growing andexperiencing life my travelers and friends!
