Meet Casey!

You are in for a treat today friends, because you are about to meet artist and mountain biker Casey Sheppard from Case of the Nomads - a yearlong (14 month) road trip where Casey has been visiting art and mountain biking communities to connect with others. With the help of her brother, she converted a Ford transit connect into a live/work space then packed up her jewelry artist studio, dog and bike to live a life on the road.   In this episode we are OBVIOUSLY going to dig into this experience, we’re also going to talk about going tubeless, living in a van down by the river, finding community on the road and the trail, and pickles.
