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, experienced 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.
