VAN TOUR | THREE YEARS LIVING ON THE ROAD

VAN TOUR | THREE YEARS LIVING ON THE ROAD

As of May 2021, I’ve been living on the road full-time for three years as an outdoor adventure & travel photographer. Here’s a tour of my current tiny home on wheels after 14 months in an SUV and two years in a custom built Ram Promaster. My ultimate goal here is to inspire you to step outside your comfort zone by sharing my own personal highs and lows along this (sometimes) wild journey. Thanks for being here!! Maybe one day I’ll see you out on that open road. #VanLife

    This is a great video, plenty of storage tips, some of which, I had never seen. It was also a great insight to living on the road, that many don’t think about.
    5 Years ago I came across a tiny homes video here on Pay (Cable) TV. Ever since, I have been amazed at what people can do with such a small area to live (and work) in. I have never bee a big house person, however I have spent the last 15 years chasing the Australian Dream, and finally realised it was not my dream it was someone else’s. After sorting out some "personal" issues I am now at a point where I will be selling my 1100sqft house. I am currently doing a career pivot, after which I will either purchase a relocatable Tiny Home, or something more mobile. So far I have not decided what the best move is.

    had to throw in that you go to BLM things lmao, get a life.

    I really like how open and informative she is in this video. I like how she shows like all the things that are in her cabinets because it really shows miscellaneous things that you carry around with you that you do actually need that are left out of a lot of Van life videos. Like that she shows that she has detergent in her van and cleaning supplies as well as Windex as well as the glue and she also had something because of static cling and the steamer because yes you don’t want to look all wrinkled that is so great and she’s so open about talking about you are going to need to poo and how she does it without becoming gross about it but she still manages to get her point across absolutely awesome

    very sweet, nice life

  5. Elizabeth W on March 22, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    I would need a full time assistant to find everything. Amazed at what is necessary & you have an organized space for it.

  6. Storm Watcher on March 22, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    Nice!

  7. 00Noontide on March 22, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    If I lived in there the smell of armpit would be off the charts.

  8. JUCK on March 22, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Where did you go?

  9. Pankaj Bhasin on March 22, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Love watching your videos. For a long time i have been wanting to get a van for vanlife. Not sure where in local area (simi valley southern california to start). Any pointes how to start ?

  10. Dora Wollam on March 22, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Definitely the most organized and most beautiful van build I have ever seen, you need to work this into your list of " things you do well" I would love to own your van, great Job Girl!

  11. Katerina Kerfoot on March 22, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Hey, after just watching this video and "10 reasons why van life sucks", with how much you say you’re in the city, do you think the solar is worth it or would you consider having a port to plug into camp grounds if you were to make a change?
    This video has given me some great design and storage ideas so thanks😊

  12. Luke Jay on March 22, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    🤩😀🥰

  13. ActiveDreamer1 on March 22, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    NICE design

  14. Ana Luisa Paes on March 22, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Hi for those of you watching, I am doing a school project on van life and If you guys could answer it would be great:
    1) How old are you?
    2) Have you ever participated in van life?
    3) What part of Van Life would make you hesitant or more willing to participate in van life?
    4) Would a van life rental service facilitate your decision? For example, if you could just rent in order to spend a weekend instead of purchasing the van

    Joli !!

  16. Mary Catherine Rush on March 22, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    You can get a metal filter for the aeropress to reduce waste if you want. 🙂

  17. Mi Mi on March 22, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Wear sunscreen your neck area is very aged from too much sun damage

  18. lynettesmp on March 22, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Hey girl nice van – with regards to outdoor toilets since you’re digging- use normal toilet paper and bury it too – people here in Auckland use shredded paper for compost and toilet paper is even softer….

  19. Chris Stewart on March 22, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Fantastic video, awesome van, if you need a travel companion I’m available 😉

  20. The Mix Club on March 22, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    I found your vids last night. Great stuff. Hope you enjoy your time on the road. The Road is such a great place just take it all in and Stay Safe.

  21. Alper Guloglu on March 22, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful beautiful beautiful home. ❤

  23. Claudio Luna on March 22, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    You’re a beautiful woman, but definitely a woman! Meaning, there’s soooooo much stuff in that van that a person could do without. 🤪Nevertheless, that’s your van and your life, therefore more power to you! Keep enjoying life!

  24. KIMBER on March 22, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    DOESN’T EVEN LOOK LIKE U LIVE IN THERE……WHERE IS YOUR "STUFF"?????!!!!

  25. C T on March 22, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Love the light interior. Makes it look bigger.

  26. Jenny I on March 22, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    These are nice and all, but the average person can not afford what’s on all these fricken channels for tiny houses, van living ect.

  27. bmo shareholder apple shareholder on March 22, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    I wish I had a wife that looks like that.

  28. Betty Teh on March 22, 2022 at 6:26 pm

  29. Jennifer Marie on March 22, 2022 at 6:30 pm

  34. irene morley on March 22, 2022 at 6:34 pm

  35. Adam H on March 22, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    do you need a roomate? i am a premium dirtbag – been climbing for 8 years i have lots of van e xperience.

  36. steven bathurst on March 22, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Have you tried a cargo box van it’s wider and about 14 to 16 feet long or longer.A lot of my friends are transitioning to that. It’s basically a class B plus but they get it stripped and customize it them self. You can boondock longer. More black, gray and black water storage.if you have the money. Food for thought!!

  37. Jim Black on March 22, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    The US military could lessons from you about storage and logistics. Well done.

  38. Barry Lim on March 22, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Admires! That’s life

  39. JUCK on March 22, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    where did you go?

  40. Jennifer Marie on March 22, 2022 at 6:43 pm

  41. Like, some dude on March 22, 2022 at 6:45 pm

  42. Kathleen Jensen on March 22, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    I like that she doesn’t have clutter everywhere 🙂

  43. 00Noontide on March 22, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    @7:44 this is where the van explodes from poor electrical wiring and leaky propane installation.

  44. WonderfulWorld on March 22, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Beautiful beautiful life,like your video,subscribed to your channel, thanks for your video

  45. Kathleen Jensen on March 22, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I love that she doesn’t have clutter everywhere 🙂

  46. jxhank on March 22, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    I am impressed, what a life that must be. Every day is or could be a mew adventure. @81, can’t tell you how much I admire her courage to go solo. Looking to see some of her drone videos.

  47. John Okamoto on March 22, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    The pillow idea a is great! Her van is so well thought out!

  48. Robert Lacson on March 22, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    thank you to your Van tour…getting so much an idea to built one.

  49. Ole-Egil Hvitmyren on March 22, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Solid advice about the pillows being storage of fluffy things. Also liked the window covers. Btw, you’re very organized. The whole thing is really inspirational.

  50. David Martin on March 22, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Some really useful storage and organization tips. This is seriously one of the best produced van tour videos I’ve seen to date. Plus a cameo from the legend, Jimmy Chin! 👏
