Natasha Hynes, from Montreal, Canada, bought a Dodge Sprinter van in 2021 with the dream of waking up in the mountains of the West Coast. After downsizing her life to move out of a toxic living situation and into a van with her 3 cats, Natasha crossed the country overcoming many obstacles along the way.
Over the following four months she would cross the country two more times, once on her way to document a historic moment in Canada, and another after being abandoned without a vehicle by her then co-traveler on the wrong side of the county.
While facing many life-threatening scenarios along the way, she made her way back to her van on the west-coast. Her vlog, Quest Out West, chronicles the good and bad of van life, travel, and life struggles without the glamorous bias you see on social media, with the ultimate goal of inspiring you to face your fears, transcend limitations, and go after the life you really want.
You got this! Last summer I traveled 3,000 miles in a small jeep with my 9 cats over a 3 week period. It wasn’t bad. My black cat was really interested in watching Spot 🙏
Cats + Cat Urine = _____. Please consider finding homes for your cats.
I’m going over 2,500. Miles with 4 cats and my Beagle mix dog. They’ e all been with me since they were born. I’m not a creep who would abandon them. My mother would abandon me in the middle of a bridge if I so much as wet my diaper at 16 mos old. I’m not in a nice van I’m in a Toyota Yaris. That’s right, a Yaris. I love and respect your relying on your angels. I don’t always have a clear tower w them but when they want me to hear them it’s loud and clear. I know only 1 thing clearly right not which is that I’m meant to leave the hell hole town I’m in now and we are starting over in the far west. I am terrified but doing it anyway. You inspire me and watching you helps me be brave. You are helping people like me more than you’ll ever know. Wish I could drive along w you. Thank you my little darling fawn. Be safe, be full of faith & God’s/ the Universes courage. ♥️🙋♀️🙏🏻
Nice video my friend
Had to have my whole brake system changed on my minivan which happens to be my home too. Almost all my savings went to it gahh
Just watch for that bag. I had one. And it filled up with water. The zipper let water through.
I noticed you didn’t cover the coolant radiator when you sprayed the front grill. Remember to check it in case you blocked the cooling cells with paint.
U should get the foldable cat carriers, at least u can fold them in the corner
You don’t end a video like this.
Love your videos ! I’m happy every thing getting better for you ♥️ your my inspiration to never give up .
So happy to see you’re not only living with challenges but, thriving. Kudos! Strong, positive energy sent to you & your 3 babies.
What was wrong with the sprinter?
Paint looks great! Re letting go of stuff, I organize for people and I promise you, less is the way to go:) Check out @TheMinimalists You tube… lots of free videos about this and especially the book they wrote, "Everything that Remains"… all. about letting go of"stuff"
The van looks good
Glad to see things are starting to look up & forward for you 🌟
3 cats in a van!!!!!!!!!
your awesome, never forget that…xoxoxo God Bless
Why have you not made any videos playing your guitar? Seems like all your videos focus on the negative things that happen. Why not share some moments with less drama.
Just sub yesterday. Been catching up .wow lots of drama but I get it. Some times the chaos star hangs lower on others. Thanks for sharing. Life is a highway 🌈
We started of in our Ford Transit. Currently, moved into a class C Winnebago 👍 Good luck!
I had to stop at 2 mins and go back to the previous video somehow I missed it lol. What kind of paint is that I like it
I’m on tenterhooks
Why did you decide to downsize?
Trust in God always. It will all work out in the end.
If you can live this lifestyle with 3 cats I can do it with 2 dogs. I need to stop making excuses
What do you do for a living?
This video randomly popped up on my feed. What in the world is happening and why is she selling the sprinter? That seems to be what a lot of van life people are working towards.🤔
Your minivan looks good Natasha 👍🏼 👌🏼 I need to work on my suv. Just been so down going on 2 months living in my suv with 3 dogs.
I totally know what you felt what you let the bose go to the guy. I have had those moments in my life, where I just listen to my intuition and it tells me I can trust in someone or something, and it’s never led me wrong. I love your videos so I hate how you always leave us on cliff hangers! Now I want to know what happens next! Longer videos pleassssseeee : )
Hope your not going to BC for nicer weather I lived on Vancouver island for 3 yrs after leaving Ont worse winters ever cold and rain for months ,,bought a rv and headed south now in Arizona heading for Mexico ,,cheers and good luck
You.did very good job!
Hope all worked out💕
Could you please tell me where you got the bag that goes on top of the van and will it go on top of a car that doesn’t have the racks? I also am worried about if somebody might steal it? I just think they could cut it off and open it up…take stuff out 😳
How much are you selling the sprinter for I am very interested
Oh goodness gracious! I was so happy things were finally working out for you, until I saw the end. Shit. I’m gonna pray for you, and send positive vibes your way On a damn daily basis. Maybe your gonna hafta get chains for your tires. Some minivans just don’t do good in the snow.
Hi Natasha… I hope you are well.. I started watching your videos couple wks ago, while being super sick.. I actually binge watched.lol😁 I haden’t commented yet, so thought I would.. I really watching.. and I keep you in my prayers!🙏 I’m glad you found th3 sound bar.. and congrats on selling the van, hopefully the papers come quick. Oh and thx for sharing your story.. have a good night.. stay safe and warm.. 💕
Hi 👋 from Phoenix AZ sending you ❤️ & light ☀️ M
Enjoy your best life!!!👠🚌👠
I wonder if you could put the 3 Cat Carriers in your rooftop carrier instead, but I know this is at least 6-weeks ago. They can handle the weather at least or do you have to use them on a regular daily basis?
Love your videos. Thanks to you and for your words of advice. I did this. Thank you for inspiring me https://youtu.be/PS8zunqP0tY
Happy for you!
Wow, Spot is magical. She (he?) Turned from black to red, in then sun! 😀
Glad it all worked out for you and trusting the angels.
The caravan looks amazing, great paint job. I cannot imagine trying to drive on icy roads, you’re very brave!! May you reach warmer climes soon!
Hello NEWEST FRIEND!👋 Looking forward to seeing more 😀! Have a beautiful and blessed day 🙏 ❤️. LUCRETIA
