I’m so excited to have found this forum to help me dive deeper into the possibility of Van Life. I’m an ex-restaurant server who is about to go back to school for a change to a career that hopefully will be both inspiring and will eventually allow the freedom of remote work. I’m happily married to someone who is willing to support me during these 2 years of schooling but we don’t want to go into another basement apartment that has to be paid for with a 50+ hour work week. Living in a van or RV seems like a creative and amazing pressure free opportunity to start the dream 2 years earlier.
The thing that’s stopping us from buying yesterday - where the heck do you all park in the winter? I get the kinda fun ways to get by on showering, water storage and heating. But my gosh I’m struggling on what to do/ where to go when we are going to need to stay somewhere within an hour of the college and work. Speaking about Canada, specifically Ottawa area, all the campgrounds are 6 month seasonal. Walmart parking isn’t a super realistic idea from my current perspective. Any ideas you guys might have would be amazing!
Thank you for taking the time to read my longggg intro!
