    You can get the butane cans for about 6$ for a pack of 4 at most asian grocery stores. Half the price of walmart. Also usually available from sams club for about 8$ for a 4 pack.

    Hi little squirrel! @7:51

  7. PHZ710 on May 21, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    I use a yeti cooler just like that (probs same size too) and I just put 3 frozen gallon jugs.
    I only have to change them once a week and im sure if I really wanted I could get away with 2.
    Ice blocks take wayyyy long to thaw but I can’t find ice blocks anywhere so freezing the jugs does the same thing while staying reusable.
    Plus if I run out of water or want some cold water as they thaw you can drink them! Fresh cold af water!

    Does anyone know where I can find the wireless fans or the specific name for them. I was getting ready to purchase them and then didn’t find them in my amazon cart anymore ๐Ÿ™

  11. Anne Fisher on May 21, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    I don’t van life, but I want a jackery. In Florida we get a lot of storms and our power goes out a lot.

    if your looking for eco-friendly soap, citrus peels (orange, lemon. lime, etc) in vinegar for 2+ weeks. it will clean everything. some people use it as a natural way to clean animal cages

  17. Hugz not Drugz on May 21, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Iโ€™m just now looking into this. It seems like the dream life.

    It’s a little pricey, but these portable dual fridge/freezers are amazing! Can be used on 12V or on your Jackery inverter: https://icecofreezer.com/collections/iceco-all-12v-fridge/products/iceco-go20-flexible-dual-zone-12v-car-fridge

  30. Rachel Van on May 21, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Please check out stashers! They are silicon bags which you can wash and reuse. They are amazing and so many uses.

  39. Connie DePaepe on May 21, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    i have a jackery. what a beautiful find. all the ways to charge it.. awesome. I would put my solar panel in the windshield to escalate the solar power charging…not sure if it worked, but, it did cover my windshield.

  40. Max Krohn on May 21, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    10:48 Don’t think a Wisconsinite will recognize that Spotted Cow? Great choice! Also, thank you for providing these helpful videos. Just about to head to Breckenridge, Colorado to van life out there for a bit so these videos are helping out quite a bit!

  43. Alex on May 21, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    You guys forgot to tell us where you stash your weed and how many one need for a 4 month road trip

  44. mohamed sharif on May 21, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    How do you guys make money in road ?

  45. soulnourishment on May 21, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    The magnets are a game changer for cutrains/nets definetly getting some!

  46. RicksRav4 on May 21, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    I got that water bottle, but for me it was too heavy when full and it was too awkward to carry and store. I use a 3 gallon hard plastic jug from Amazon.

  47. Del Mar Mermaids on May 21, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    Do you have recommendations on how to save / make money in a van?

  48. prutlin on May 21, 2022 at 10:23 pm
