Andrew here. My wife and I are joining the sane people and pursuing this seemingly awesome route of existence. We’re here for the wisdom and culture.
Question 1: First I would love to hear and learn from individuals who make their homes in both vans and 24 ish foot campers.Any understanding of the difference of lifestyle in each of these environments would be super helpful.
Question 2: Does anyone do a rural/dispersed camping in a van full time? I myself am an outdoorsman so naturally I have the dream of a 4x4 Mercedes build out with a 6x12 canvass tent next to it with a roaring fire. But I’m also a realist and my wife likes civilization. Perhaps looking for a comfortable all around setup that can also achieve some mild “off the beaten path” activities for short excursions?
Question 3: Have to come to you all humble as ask legitimately how do you procure and manage an income while maintaining this lifestyle? We crave the freedom I see you all enjoying. Knowing it’s 100 percent possible we are here to learn. (Chef/Litagator)
Question 4: Any opening advice for two very enthusiastic people in our 30s looking to break free of the economic cycle and enjoy life. This is a fantastic resource for new people starting out, we appreciate you very much. I’ve also never met anyone who lives in a van that’s an asshole. Not one. Pretty excited to be among some nice people!
