    In bear country you’ll ned a portable electric fence around your campsite. Less than 2.5 lbs for huge peace of mind

    It’s funny. My Ex left me with my kids in a home owned by her family. I was shattered. Two months later her family told me to leave. My kids were old enough to care for themselves and her family was there to take care of them, so I left. Lived out of my truck for close on two years. I finally found an apartment, but I kinda missed some of that freedom. This time I want a van. I want a home. Not just a seat.

    Great point. I started with a crappy old minivan I bought on Craigslist for $850. It was cramped and the paint was peeling but it was mechanically sound. I explored the southwest for 5 months during the winter. Worked hard through the summer and just upgraded to a Chevy G10 camper van. So excited to do more traveling.

    Hi. I’m new to the channel. Have you made a video on income (best ways to make money to support van life)?

  6. Jorgesworld on April 12, 2023 at 10:39 am

    just thought, instead of sleeping in your car, you could rent a sprinter for like 15-25 a day. buy an air mattress, electric stove and cooler and try the full experience for a week, low cost.

    Losing a lot of drive in your life. That’s what some women do when they break your heart. I know personally. You are a good-lookin’ dude who is funny and has a great personality. You look a lot like Jason Mamoa. I am sure you get that a lot. You are doing much better now, though. You are an awesome dude.

    Pretty good adviceses, but in Denmark vans are so expensive, and registration is troublesome and expensive, so if you’re going to do it, do it well the first time or go home, Denmark is the country of rules, and we are mikro managet so tightly.

  9. niyu on April 12, 2023 at 10:40 am

    I guess van life will never be an option for me but I really like your content! Your internet seems to be pretty good, amazing that you are gaming in your van. Keep going and stay healthy 🙌

  23. Robert MacDonald on April 12, 2023 at 10:52 am

    Getting your heart broken doesn’t sound lame at all. It sounds honest and vulnerable. Much respect. Appreciate you sharing your journey with us. So excited for when I can begin my vanlife journey. Who knows, maybe we’ll bump into each other someday out on the road.

    Who’s thought of installing a small plastic urinal in there van build and running the pipe though the floor where the pee deposits to the ground under the van

  30. Brianna Jackson on April 12, 2023 at 11:03 am

    I like your set up n your personality ❤️

    Thanks for your honesty

  31. Layla S on April 12, 2023 at 11:03 am

    Thank you – I’m about to jump in, after having done the living out of my car with a tent for 4 months. I’m spending time thinking about what I really need – and it’s going to be a bit challenging due to my love of yoga and dance. And music. But if I remove the past – I’ll totally fit in a van 🧎‍♀️💃😊

    The emotional part is SO real and something I was not ready for

  40. gazza on April 12, 2023 at 11:21 am

    Got in a pub fight when I was 16 got 18 month jail sentence first ever charge or offence but in all honesty it was shit yeah but it made me realised how much you don’t need to be content and strangly enough even at 29 now I still have that minimal living life style and since I seen this guy and his amazing van conversion I’m hooked on it at least as even just an experience to just do it try it I’ve done car caming in Woods and beaches for a night at a time and had literly nothing but my phone and blankets and loved it my only issue is I don’t have a work from home job so that’s some thing I need to get in to in order to really take advantage of it great content

  41. Shelia Hansen on April 12, 2023 at 11:22 am

    Why do most women say this life sucks and it’s scary and most men love it?

  42. Luca Handisides on April 12, 2023 at 11:22 am

    Such a cool story bro

  43. Jonathan Brinkley on April 12, 2023 at 11:23 am

    Amazingly. I’m in the same situation. My heart was broken. And I’m still struggling and need to just take and uproot everything. I’ve slept in my car before and honestly it was insane to experience and I actually loved it. I was scared and hyper vigilant as I just couldn’t drive safe and set myself up with a blanket in front of a gas station. Terrified of a cop showing up. I will be trying it again though once weather warms. Yours was the first non-don’t do it vid I saw. And I was genuinely curious of your take. That said. I am curious what you do in regards to learning laws.

  44. Zmey on April 12, 2023 at 11:24 am

    Dude, It’s amazing

  45. glory ugalde on April 12, 2023 at 11:24 am

    Your adorable 🥰

  46. Seth Kimmel on April 12, 2023 at 11:25 am

    Earlier on in my relationship with me ex wife, we had talked about starting a van life, go on a wild adventure together. In the end we decided we just weren’t ready for that kind of commitment. It was for the best, we weren’t meant to be, it’s been a year and my heart still keeps breaking, I love her too much. My life fell apart when we split, grateful I’m not homeless but I’m just a step away. Like your story, I’ve just lost all my drive. I am doing research on getting into the van life, and what you’ve shared has given me much hope. I feel excited, the urge to act and do something, something I haven’t felt in awhile. Thank you for your insight <3

  47. Hen in the Foxhouse on April 12, 2023 at 11:25 am

    Can we really call yr lifestyle crazy when yr van is nicer than most people’s apartments? No shade, it’s beautiful.

  48. Sonia Bennett on April 12, 2023 at 11:29 am

    Sorry to hear about your issues. I admire your positive thoughts. We live our days, day after day.. As we age , we have a whole new outlook on life. We think of our past, 0ur memories, and eventually we know that life will,end as we know it. What are my last wishes, dreams, goals.Perhaps to really know who I have become and what have I learnt through my life. What a wonderful thought to have this lifestyle . When we pass, can’t take anything with us Wouldn’t want someone to worry about what to do with all my belongings What better way than to drive off into the sunset. I love what he is saying. It will be an adventure. A personal journey. Wise words. THANK YOU!
