“I have a lot more stuff than I even use…as I dug into my closets and into storage and things like that, I realized I don’t even use some of the stuff that I was going to use, and I haven’t seen it or touched it in over a year. So it was really freeing actually to start giving things away”

“She was kind of the icebreaker…I think she has been more excited about vanlife ever since that trip than even I was! I had moments of fear, you know me thinking of the pros and the cons and all these things and she doesn’t care. To her…vanlife equals adventure and fun and meeting new friends and that’s all she could talk about and think about.”
