Kiara isn't thrilled about the long hours in the van, but she loves the snow and cuddling up ❤️🐶🚐❄️. Me too. Down to 8° last night. . . . #vanventure #yooperroadtrip #vanlife

Transformation Tuesday!! Top photo is the day we bought the van, which was January 12, 2017. It took 3-1/2 months to build the interior, but we are still adding and deleting items as we go along. The bottom photo is the current state of our part time van life. . . #vanlife #vanbuild #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #workinprogress #cargovanconversion #cargovan #lafayettela #cajunvan #lafayettelouisiana #vanlifemovement #projectvanlife #livingsmall #campervan #campervanlife #getoutstayout #vanlifestyle #roadlife #lifeofadventure #VLINewBuildWatch #vanconversion #vanventure #projectvanlife #homeiswhereyouparkit #chevyexpress2500 #chevyexpressvan #vandwellinglife #vanlifesociety #vanlifeculture

Got to sing along with the dueling pianists, grab a drink on bourbon and see some street jazz bands at night! Definitely liked walking the streets better in the sun with my funky friend and enjoyed the renditions of Louis Armstrong by a local while we had our coffee 👫☕️🎺 #NoLa #spirits #jazz #trippin’ #Tonythetransit #ontheroadagain #vanventure

We're happy that we left our originally planned campsite. While we were driving north, we came across what looked like a car on fire on the side of the road, and there was a plane flying above us putting down flame retardant. Turns out there was also a wildfire #hillfire) that was growing pretty fast, now >1500 acres. As of yesterday, when we originally would have left that campsite, the roads that we used to get out of the area were all closed. We're not sure what would have happened had we spent the night and not left until late the next day.

Rural deliveries anyone ? || Yesterday I had my first experience of being mistaken for a UPS delivery guy. I thought the energetic women was just giving me an early Christmas present but quickly clarified things by asking where she could look up her tracking number. Maybe she’s on to something? • • • • #vansion #mobilemansionco #vanlife #vanventure #advanture #vanrenovation #van4x4 #vanbuild #projectvanlife

Roof bars fitted & roof box on! All our surfboards and wetsuits fit in the box, saves load of space inside the van AND avoids the stink of wet neoprene- always good! #vw #vwcamper #vwt5 #camperconversion #project #eddiewouldgo #vanlife #vanventure

Even though camping up in the Chisos Basin made our stay a bit colder than the other sites, it has the most amazing morning view! Waking up to these mountains all around you in the morning is nothing short of breathtaking. To a little boy who loves to rock climb, it’s all kinds of adventure and fun right within reach. We highly recommend staying in the basin. #adventureswithkids @bigbendnps

We took Duke and his van on it's first maiden voyage. Wish us luck. Three Floridians taking on what we call frigid weather. Brrrrrr. First night at a rest stop went quite well. Duke made sure he takes up my whole pillow and my neck was a good place to put his ice cold paws. He slept really comfortable. Onwards we go...... . . . #vanventure #vanlife #van #transitvan #ontheroadagain #travel #adventure #instadog #traveldog #adogandhisvan #vanishlife #vanlifer #poodle #toypoodle #adventuredog #dogstagram #lategram

Long weekends in the woods || We spent the weekend in the Eastern Sierra’s exploring some hot springs and giving the @vansion her first taste of adventure. Really happy with how the new engine has been running and excited to get through the last 100 miles of the initial break in period. • • • • #vansion #mobilemansionco #vanlife #vanventure #advanture #vanrenovation #van4x4 #vanbuild

Couple photos from the craziest most spontaneous adventure of my life. 🏔🏞🚴‍♂️🚵‍♂️🚙📷 My words to you all is don't be afraid to go have an adventure. It doesn't have to be two months in a van traveling the west. If going to a local park for a run or bike ride seems like an adventure then go do it. The only thing holding us back is ourselves. So just follow your adventure. Thanks to @bam_461 for being the only person I know crazy enough to come with me. A real brother. #VanLiving #VanVenture 🤘🤙👍✌ Also I'm home now for a bit so I don't exactly what will happen to making videos. I should be able to find something interesting to film. Stay tuned folks.

Day 7, Almost there ! || The @vansion is getting closer and closer to her first start everyday. We were able to put the core support on and fill her with fluids on Saturday. Everything went back together nicely and fingers crossed we don’t need to get back in there. Currently waiting on an oil pump primer tool to help with the first start and then will hopefully be on the road soon!

Next up came a pretty massive addition! Pop-roof time 🤙 despite at first thinking we weren’t going to go ahead with a pop, being able to stand up when cooking and to have a cooler space to sleep with the upcoming EuroTrip on the horizon, we figured we would go for it! Cutting the roof off though .... always a worrying time 😂 #vw #vwt5 #vwt5camper #camperconversion #vanlife #poproof #eddiewouldgo #project #vanventure

My last #vanventure from Black Rock City, NV to Austin, Texas post #burningman (📸&🚐: @brian_doerfler ) . . . The weekend of the van purchase was one of the most stressful times of my life. Although totally fun/cool/exciting/etc, a lot more went down that weekend which actually caused me to become physically ill (still feeling some symptoms today). I was having a hard time being excited about the van or even talking about the van to others....I needed a serious decompression after that weekend... . . . Fast forward 3 weeks- Feeling MUCH better and SUPER pumped to take B.B. on her first official road trip this weekend to Big Bend National Park for the Terlingua International Chili Competition. I’ve wanted to attend this West Texas gathering for years, but it was just never in the cards for me. I originally wasn’t going to to make it this year either...but, plans change and I have a van now...so why wouldn’t I go!? . . I’m using this trip as a (much needed) quick mind reset before I come back to Austin and get ready for my next chapter. Shit is about to get REAL, y’all! Wish us luck on our maiden voyage! . . . #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifemovement #positivelatitude #utah #burningmandecompression #burningman2018 #roadtrip #exploreamerica #womenontheroad #bigbendnationalpark #sprintervanconversion #terlinguachilicookoff #tbt #morepagesmorewordstomystory #getoutside #hikebigbend #adventure #explore #exploretexas #campervan #adventurevan #nomad #tbt

🚎🌵 So the other day we arrived in LA at our Airbnb late in the afternoon, parked our van outside, took our backpacks and the few boxes we accumulated and left. Very unceremoniously our #vanlife had come to an end. (At least for now.) The first day we felt a little bit like jungle kids suddenly exposed again to modern civilization. We wondered at all the stuff, people are used to have in their house. We felt haunted by the clocks and mirrors in every room and overwhelmed by the choices of dishes, cutlery or pillows to sleep on. We twice lost each other in the spaces of the four rooms we now had to inhabit all for ourselves and at night I couldn't go to sleep because ironically - after all the nights of sleeping on the road for the last four months - I didn't feel safe. I somehow got really anxious because I was convinced that a fancy house like this (we are actually living in a small guesthouse which used to be a garage, but it feels fancy to us) would definitely attract burglars... so yeah, readjustment was a bit bumpy. But after all, vanlife has definitely taught us how to take the bumps in the road not too serious. . Anyone with similar experiences? . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #vanlifers #lifeontheroad #ourseasonsinthesun #backtocivilization #defaultworld #bumpyride
