Our Story

"You got your nice shades on, and the worst days are gone
So now the band plays on, you got one life, blaze on" -Phish
Hey friend! We're Gabby and Adam, co-founders of Local Nomads.
Since 2012 we've been a nomadic couple on a mission to prove that YOU can live a more fulfilling life through travel. After teaching English for a year in South Korea, we returned to the USA for 3 years of seasonal work in 5 different states. We've done everything from stocking grocery store shelves at the Grand Canyon National Park, to panning gold in Alaska, and even trimming weed in Humboldt County, CA.
Since 2016 we've been traveling the world while working online. We believe in slow travel with a focus on local culture. As we travel we can't help but feel creatively inspired by the places we visit, experiences we encounter, and people we meet. The Blaze On Shop is an outlet for us to share our creative expressions with you! 
Some of our designs are inspired by psychedelics. Our Flower Child design which depicts a single weed bud was inspired by 3 years of working on a weed farm in California, We've never seen such beautiful buds! While our kaleidoscopic graphic pocket tees are dripping with psychedelia. 
At Blaze On, we believe in ethical and eco friendly products. We are proud to offer organic hemp tee shirts in our shop. Did you know that hemp requires only 1/20 of the water that cotton requires? All of our products are made in the USA with a focus on sustainability and reducing environmental impact. 
We want to hear from you! If you have any questions about our products, or you're curious about our nomadic life please feel free to reach out to us! We'd love to hear from you. Feel free to email us through our contact page, or find us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
