Embarking from Portland, Oregon...
I am following my philosophy of doing life a little differently by living and working remotely in my self-converted Sprinter. Between stories from the road, my van build, photos of my favorite adventures and more, I hope you find inspiration to get outside and see the world around you.
While I love my van, I'm even more fond of the places it takes me. After a year on the road, I've explored all 50 states, hitting National and State Parks along the way. Check out photos from my favorite hikes, campsites, and more!

THE #VANLIFE MOVEMENT: WHAT IT'S REALLY LIKE TO LIVE ON THE ROAD
“My biggest piece of advice is if something, like van life, is interesting you, figure out why it’s intriguing to you and how you can make it happen. Living in a van or traveling full-time looks different for everybody."

"The long list of places I’ve explored throughout the continent includes cities, monuments, National parks, State parks, specific trails, and fabulous restaurants. In June of 2017, I set out mostly seeking five to seven mile-long hikes in beautiful National and State Parks. By Spring of 2018, I was literally googling “weirdest things to see in Nebraska.” Some cities were explored by grabbing a coffee and perusing the tiny shops within the area for five hours. Some cities were explored by seeing live music and grabbing food at the best rated restaurants. In some states or general regions, I didn’t even enter a city – I just stayed in surrounding recreational areas or national forests."
