John Muir Trail Daily Log: Day 0-5

John Muir Trail Daily Log: Day 0-5

Hey Friends! We’re back from the John Muir Trail and forever changed for the better! Over the next few weeks we’re going to roll out some blog posts containing photos paired with select days from my written journal from on the trail, and video daily logs that we recorded on trail. This first one will cover day 0-5! Enjoy!

Vanlife Hacks

Vanlife Hacks

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.

Overland Expo - Rig Tours

Overland Expo - Rig Tours

As some of you may know Owen and I attended Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Az this year! Though we’ve attended Expo East, nothing can hold a candle to the size of Expo West. We were invited to attend with Main Line Overland to show off our rig in their booth.

Hygiene on the Road

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:

Bathroom Gear:

Nalgene Bottel - Wide Mouth

Go Girl

Folding shovel

Pot-t Travel Toilet


Shower Gear:

Dr. Bronners Biodegradable Soap

Nemo Shower Bag

Thank you Motion Array for the video assets used in this video!

As always my friends, thank you for reading and watching!

The month starts off with us leaving Joshua Tree NP, CA and headed out towards the coast. A friend of our who we had been with that weekend gave us a call to tell us that he came across one of the last sections of the super bloom out by his friends house in a residential area and that we should check it out.

Owen and I will be carrying separate systems for the trail to be sure that we’re capturing our experience to the best of our ability without duplicating anything or overloading ourselves with unnecessary gear.

How We Make Money on the Road!

How We Make Money on the Road!

We get frequently get asked how we make money on the road so we can afford to travel full time. If you have been with us for a while you probably already know the basics, but we thought it would be fun to put together a video detailing our business.

Luna is our 10 year old cat that we’ve had as a member of our little family since college! Owen and I adopted her from Craigslist and she has been our main squeeze ever since.
