David Rich grew up as a farm boy on a ranch in southwestern Colorado near the Four Corners. His dad introduced him to tractors and cattle, and his mother to music and travel. After high school David received an alternate appointment to the Air Force Academy but ended up touring the country with an amazing group of fellow misfits in the fighting 529th Air Force Band. The Air Force was relieved to discharge him a few months early to attend the University of Colorado in Boulder. After graduation David was somehow admitted to the University of Chicago Law School and by some fluke began practicing law in Phoenix with Lewis and Roca, the firm that handled the Miranda case (which he had nothing to do with). He became an adjunct professor at ASU College of Law, supervising the legal clinic and teaching legal writing, to little effect. David tried private practice but found the cushy job of assistant attorney general more to his liking. His appointment as judge pro tem by the Maricopa County Superior Court was a resounding success because attorneys immediately settled any case to which he was assigned. He and his third wife decided they’d rather travel than work, so they saved every penny on a ten-year plan that took eleven years, retiring in their forties to RV the World.
David has written dozens of travel stories for publications ranging from International Living to GoNOMAD.com. His website David and Mary Around the World, (MyTripJournal.com/RichWorld), has been featured on LonelyPlanet.com. HIs principal websites are rv-the-world.com and jdavidrich.com, both of which should be live in a day or two, maybe more. In his first book, Myths of the Tribe (1993), he examined the influence of organized religion on ethic, government, and economics. In RV the World, now in its second edition, he chronicles a seventeen-year journey that took him through 170 countries and every continent except Antarctica. His books are available lots of places.
