We’re six weeks into 2018. Our amazing time in Quartzsite has come and gone. We’re only a month or two away from weather beginning to improve across places like northern Arizona, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico. Meaning, weather will soon after begin to improve everywhere else.
In other words, the busiest camping season is just around the corner. Which also signals the start of the heaviest part of production for the upcoming RV Nomads movie. We expect to be in full production from May 15th through the end of June. We then go into post-production, setting up a scenario that will lead to a series of events that, in our belief, will completely change the game in terms of nomads networking and coalescing around stories we all share, relate to and live.
RV NOMADFEST 2018
RV Nomads is set to premiere at NomadFEST 2018 in Wellington, Texas this October. If you’re not familiar with NomadFEST we highly recommend you click here to go check it out. Many industry veterans are telling us this event is shaping up to be groundbreaking on several fronts. It’s a rally of nomads, of course, but it will also host a film festival and a conference on content creation, digital nomadism and more.
There are already 100+ RVers registered to come camp at the fairgrounds in Wellington this October. We anticipate there will be more than 500 there for the full five day event. The event has already been viewed as such a powerful gathering of nomads that discussions are in place to host a quarterly NomadFEST four times in 2019.
Attendees include RVLove, More Than A Wheelin, Drivin’ and Vibin’ (performing live), Audrey Callahan (performing live), Mortons On The Move, Always On Liberty, Hebard’s Travels, Chickery’s Travels, Less Junk < More Journey, RV Chickadee and Pau Hana Travels. Several RV manufacturers will be there and are even bringing new rigs to take part in the festivities.
This is an event you do not want to miss. Click here for more details and all registration information.
WHY NOMADFEST IS CRITICAL TO WHAT WE’RE BUILDING
Not only will NomadFEST serve as an incredible national gathering of nomads, it also signifies a massive pivotal moment for what we’re building here at Open Road Today. You see, NomadFEST will also host the official launch of EPIC Nomad TV. ENTV is a new web based content delivery system that will feature a plethora of episodic programs. Shows already being developed for ENTV include:
- 1st Class RV Adventures
- An untitled (working title to be announced soon) show featuring Robert & Jessica from Exploring the Local Life
- Less Junk < Even More Journey
- Big Meals – Small Kitchens (Julie Bennett)
- An untitled (working title to be announced soon) show featuring Kyle & Olivia from Drivin’ and Vibin’
- EPIC Drives hosted by Marc Bennett
- Alaska Unplugged
- Digital Nomads Season 1
- An untitled (working title to be announced soon) show about boondocking and off grid nomadism featuring Tom and Caitlin from Mortons On The Move
- Ghost Town Nomads
Over the course of the first year online this will mean more than 100 episodes of nomadic content, much of it focused on the full time RV movement. All of it available for a small subscriber fee that will grant full access to the entire archive library via Roku, Firestick, iOS and Android.
It’s a huge project with a very ambitious plan underneath it. NomadFEST and the release of the RV Nomads film kicks off a new network and a series of national gatherings for full time nomads.

We’re honored and humbled to be a part of such a large project with incredible meaning. Our infrastructure is being built to elevate the story. Your story and that of thousands of others who successfully unplugged from the matrix in favor of an independent life on the open road.

Now let’s rock!
