Life is too short to be unhappy

Hello.There

We are Mike and Jess

We had this crazy idea to build a tiny home on wheels and ditch our 9-5's so we could travel.

 
Our philosophy is that life is too short to be unhappy.
We made it a goal to simplify our life and fill it with adventure, embarking on a nomadic lifestyle in a self-converted Mercedes Sprinter van before our first wedding anniversary. In April 2017, we hit the road and haven’t looked back.   


Follow along on our adventures and learn how to build a van, how to travel on the cheap and how to live more intentionally

What's life like on the road?

While it may look glamorous, we have slightly different struggles than those in stationary homes, like where to park at night!

About Us

image116

We are a newly married couple who made it a goal to simplify our life and fill it with adventure, embarking on a nomadic lifestyle in a self-converted sprinter camper van before our first wedding anniversary. In April 2017, we hit the road and haven’t looked back. 


As of July 2018, we have built two vans, driven through 45 states (and parts of Canada), reaching all four corners of the U.S. A big part of van life for us is about being present in the moment and trying not to plan out every next step, but we hope to complete 49 states by next Summer after our trip to Alaska. 

Meet Mike

Mike is an architect turned artist drawn to inspiring places. Along our journey, he sketches everyday, chronicling the places we explore. He sells his artwork through his website, Instagram and Etsy shop. 

Meet Jess

Jess is a scientist who got frustrated with the lack of communication and outreach in medical research and now works as a consultant to help translate technical information for the public.

She is also the co-creator of The Vanlife App, helping nomads find community and resources on the road. Launching very soon!

Meet Vinny

Vinny is a 14 year old chihuahua who's been reinvigorated by a life of adventure on the road. He loves ear scratches, ice cream and whines when it's time for bed.
