A Journey of Creating a Life on the Road with Seasonal Jobs

Keep the budget down and the fun up.”

Thomas and Lizzy

Living on the road is like catching up with old friends all the time. And meeting back up again with Lizzy and Thomas in Alabama after meeting them for the first time in Baja, was no different. Working seasonal jobs keeps them busy but never too busy to tell us how they do that, travel, take care of their pup, and still live a life of adventure.

Some backstory, here. I had just finished producing the podcast episode where we sat with Lizzy and Thomas for the first time in Baja outside of a quaint bar and hotel called, Cielito Lindo, when I had the brilliant revelation that I should see what they were up to now. Now, being amidst the pandemic, early May. It was serendipitous! Just as we were getting ready to travel again and leave Gulf Shores, Thomas and Lizzy were doing the same and heading into Gulf Shores.

Grabbing some takeout food and beer to go we made plans to meet on the recently opened white sands of Alabama’s pristine beaches. Under the warmth of the sunny blue sky, surrounded by the sounds of kids playing and waves crashing, we caught up with friends, feeling almost normal.

It was so great to see fellow travelers and talk shop: travel, life on the road, Baja adventures, and how this friggin pandemic has both pissed us all off, yet slowed us down and managed to bring us together again. From one ocean to another, we hope you enjoy catching up with Thomas, Lizzy, and Umphrey as much as we did.

Oh, now go buy a van, grab your pup, maybe a surfboard or two, find a seasonal job in Baja, and start living.
