Though we have been technomadic for several years now, 2009 was our first full year living on the road and in our trailer without any other physical place to call ‘home’ – in 2007 and 2008 (click for the past year summary posts) we spent part of each winter living in and working to sell Cherie’s old house in Florida.
We started 2009 with an extended stay near San Francisco, working to orchestrate the launch of the iPhone travel application HearPlanet with some over-the-top guerilla marketing. With our unauthorized renegade double-decker DJ-equipped party bus, we generate a lot of buzz at Macworld, and started off 2009 with a bang.
We wrapped up our time in the SF Bay Area by presenting on Technomadism at the O’Reilly ETech conference, and in March we were on the road again.
Since then we have crisscrossed the country 2 complete times, with many meandering paths and fabulous encounters along the way. Some highlights of 2009 include attending Burning Man, three regional Burning Man events, a submarine veterans reunion, Photoshop World, OReilly’s ETech, and our two particularly intense temporary work gigs (Amazon.com and HearPlanet).

I just spent 3 hours in the subway in Stockholm. No, it wasn’t stuck. No, I didn’t get lost. No, I wasn’t held hostage. I actually spent 3 hours in the subway on purpose.
When you travel, you want to do as the locals do. Not only does it often lead to more fulfilling and illuminating experiences, but it usually saves you money too.
