Who doesn’t love a good hack to make life a little easier?! Life on the road can be a challenge when living in such a small space. Finding little hacks can make things that much easier by being solutions to everyday problems.
If you’re reading this, we’re currently on the John Muir Trail working our butts off! For a few weeks before leaving on the trail we worked really hard to create some videos for your enjoyment, covering some topics that we’ve long wanted to dive into. This “Hygiene for Full Time Overlanding” video is the first that we’ll be rolling out over the next couple of weeks.
I think that that hygiene can be one of the most daunting subjects for people who are considering vanlife and overlanding! In this video, we break down all the ways we manage our hygiene including bathrooms and showers while constantly in motion! At this rate, we have it down to a science because in all of our 3.5 years on the road and the 4 vehicles we’ve lived out of we’ve never had a bathroom of any kind!
Here are the links to the gear that we mentioned in this video:
Thank you Motion Array for the video assets used in this video!
As always my friends, thank you for reading and watching!
We hope that you all had a great weekend! About a month ago, we were camped out in Lone Pine, California when a good looking Adventure Wagon Vanagon pulled into the spot next to us. Naturally, we needed to go over and say hi! The owner of the van, named Desert Rose, is Barry Vogel. He’s a civil rights lawyer with a long time "radio habit".
There is not a more violating feeling than having your car broken into. To know that someone entered a space that you feel safe in, with no discretion for the things that are important to you will never feel good.
We were in downtown Miami and only away from Stanley 2 hours. He was parked in a public lot, sandwiched between two major roads, in broad daylight. As we walked up to the van I said, "I know I would have never parked in a spot with so much glass on the ground." I hardly made it through that sentence before I reached the passenger vent window to see glass all over the ground.
