MoPD 9: Permanent Nomad Mobile

What you can’t see in the photo above, is the vast Tasman Sea that stretches across the background horizon, which happens to be in the background of this guys home…

Since I kicked off this month of blogging with a photo every day, I’ve repeatedly seen amazing things each day. This project is not on my mind, nagging me; it’s just on deck, laying in wait. Everyday I stop and see something amazing, something I’d like to share. After work today I escaped out west to Muriwai Beach for a surf.

When I got there, I parked next to the ultimate nomad mobile.

I spoke with the guy who owned it. He is (as expected) a very relaxed and friendly guy. His eyes were bloodshot from having surfed all day. He tells me that he makes a living in making crafts. He says the truck used to be a refrigeration truck so it stays very warm at night and retains it’s cool during the day. He even has a wood burning stove.

Inside there is a queen mattress and a king seat. This specific temporary home location, allows him to sit in his living room couch (a really comfortable couch) and look out over the sea.



Also, I love these guys:
