Female Student Lives VAN LIFE to save on Rent Money. (Van Tour)

Female Student Lives VAN LIFE to save on Rent Money. (Van Tour)

Alina Lives full time in her Dodge Camper van, in the summer time she parks around the city, and in the Canadian winter months she parks in a driveway and pays some utilities to keep her van heated and to help out her friends that live in the house. Alina sees van life as a bit of a movement, one that ties into communal living. She is a full time student and is planning on living in her van for the next two years while she completes school.

    A relationship is not based on the length of time you have spent together, it’s based on the foundation you’ve built together.👨‍❤️‍👨👨‍❤️‍👨👨‍❤️‍👨👨‍❤️‍👨👨‍❤️‍👨👨‍❤️‍👨👨‍❤️‍👨

    "Social justice movement"—excellent description for this response to toxic capitalism.

  20. Alexis on August 6, 2022 at 3:10 am

    Your videos are extremely eye opening I’ve been wanting to do (#vanlife) for about a year or so and I’m 17 and I’ve never really took the time to realize that it is romanticsid and Instagram really makes it easy but anyway I’d love to talk to you about your thoughts and about a documentary but love your videos and keep up the good work 😊

  21. Hello Juneau on August 6, 2022 at 3:10 am

    You go girl! Great interview, thanks for sharing!

  22. Leila L on August 6, 2022 at 3:12 am

  28. Varsity Overdrive on August 6, 2022 at 3:19 am

    hello, you want to do a zoom meeting about college students living in vans. Not alone, with other college van dwellers? It’ll be a lot of fun.

  29. Kenneth Peters on August 6, 2022 at 3:22 am

    Love your Videos, Forrest. I will be posting my Videos next spring. I will be taking some videos of my van build as I go, as I am really just getting alot if ideas and am ready to build. Today I will be building a proto type console between the front seats.

  30. Granny Prepper on August 6, 2022 at 3:22 am

    I’m seeing more and more people going to van life. Not just the 20 and 30 somethings. So many are getting tired of working just to support a house or apartment. I’m 66, hubby (56) and I are in southern California awaiting for his job transfer. We will be moving to northern Arizona and living in a 32ft 5th wheel. I’m so ready to move. We have been slowly getting rid of things.

  31. Gus inabus on August 6, 2022 at 3:24 am

    These videos are cool. I like the way you present peoples homes and lifestyle. I am living and travelling in a skoolie doing a daily blog.

    Please check my channel, as I would love to here your comments.

    She is CUTE!!!

  34. John Mendoza on August 6, 2022 at 3:36 am

    Badass video bro. Luv your shit!!!

  35. Hwyla on August 6, 2022 at 3:36 am

    Really – a van isn’t that much less space than a shared dorm room, however, I would most certainly want to add at least a sawdust toilet. Using a gym membership for the showers is fine, but I wouldn’t want to risk not having a potty when needed in the night. For that toilet – a small solar panel would be helpful for running a computer fan – or even a compost toilet?

  36. Patricia Burke on August 6, 2022 at 3:37 am

    I appreciate the honesty of the young lady regarding the fact that it’s not always as easy as some van dwellers portray it to be. I wish her good luck in pursuing her education, which is priceless, and will allow her more opportunities in the future. Thanks for sharing.

  37. Sheena Armstrong on August 6, 2022 at 3:39 am

    She has the book "Women Who Run With the Wolves", I love that book. She can warm up some rocks or warm up a sock filled with rice or beans and tied off at the open end and snuggle it to keep warm. If you had a dog she can keep warm using body heat but there are other challenges that come along with having a dog so there is that to consider.

  38. Debbie Fisher on August 6, 2022 at 3:40 am

    Love her honesty. Cool

  41. Terri Saint-Amour on August 6, 2022 at 3:42 am

    Thank you for doing all these interviews with solo females doing the van or mobile living thing. You can tell you have really been working on honing your videography skills, Forrest! I see a huge change from your earlier ones.

  42. BriannaB on August 6, 2022 at 3:43 am

    Awesome van layout, awesome young lady. Tfs.

  43. Heather Renton on August 6, 2022 at 3:43 am

    Great video Forest! I appreciate the simple, straight forward information. Alina is a lovely young lady. Best of wishes to her.

  44. Anthony Anthony on August 6, 2022 at 3:45 am

    I want a mix baby will you be my girlfriend?

  45. William Vanderpool on August 6, 2022 at 3:47 am

    buy two 100w 12v solar panels to have eletic power you’ll be very happy with them no billl’s . give it a try and a small solar washer on ebay or walmart for your solar power works great just air dry them. even a 50w panel will work for your heat electic heater a car battery too charge your car up or jump start it when your Battery gets to low or dies on you all you need is the sun .love mine no bill’s lol

  46. Where's Wendy on August 6, 2022 at 3:48 am

    Enjoyed your Van tour. I have the same B Van, 1974. It is cozy. I want to drive down to Mexico from Kelowna but have reservations about breaking down somewhere and being stuck.

  48. Jennifer Turner on August 6, 2022 at 3:52 am

    sleep with the clothes you are going to wear the next day under the covers with you. That way they won’t be cold when you put them on in the a.m.

  49. Brown Gravy on August 6, 2022 at 3:52 am
