My Journey
My journey began four years ago when I quit my full time job and started freelancing, bought an old retired news van I call Chester and decided to build it out myself. Poor Chester was just an empty box on wheels back then. I didn’t know a thing about building out a van and wasn’t even sure I would make much money freelancing, but I was willing to take that leap and see where it would take me. Today, I’m still living full time in old Chester, who is now a legit home, and have a bunch of knowledge under my belt after DIYing the crap out of him. I’ve also had some breathtaking experiences traveling around in my tiny home on wheels and have had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people in the process.

What I’ve Learned
I’ve learned that I’m passionate about a lot of things and really relish experience of all sorts. Anything new, new sport, new adventure, new people to hang with: sign me up! And in this new age of exponentially growing technology why should I have to choose just one thing to talk about? Sharing just one side of me feels so limiting. I’d rather find a way to combine all my passions.

Next Steps
Now it’s time to take my journey to the next level and share those experiences with YOU! I’ve had a lot of help along the way and I’d like to be there for others. I’m all about fixing up Chester and learning as much as I possibly can about maintaining him mechanically and building out the interior to better fit with my lifestyle. I’m also very passionate about staying healthy and eating right while on the road. And I do all this while having amazing adventures, rock climbing, camping, hiking, backpacking and pretty much anything related to the outdoors. And yes, I do me some yoga. :) But the journey hasn’t always been easy to figure out.

Your Support
Your support on Patreon means I can further share my message of taking a leap to do what I want to do and not what society tells me to do. Your support also means I can share the knowledge that I’ve gained since being out on the road full time to help others thinking about doing the same or are just starting out. My topics include:

  • Travel: When I get itchy feet, I can give you the skinny on wherever I end up.
  • Mechanics: Vehicle maintenance is key as a vanlifer. I’ll show you how to keep your vehicle running smooth AF. I even have my own jumpsuit!
  • Nutrition: Just because I’m on the road (with no fridge) doesn’t mean I can’t eat healthy. This year I’m pushing to create a community around this topic.
  • DIY: I love building my own stuff and tinkering with whatever I can. It mostly involves fixing up the van these days. But I’ve got some other pretty cool projects in the works.
  • Technology: Yeah I’m a nerd and I work as a freelance Web Developer. I love helping others build their online presence and plan on posting videos/posts on the subject. I also tinker from time to time with a Raspberry Pi. If you don’t know what that is, you gotta check it out!
  • Outdoors: Rock Climbing, Backpacking, Hiking, Camping. I try to be outside as much as possible. I’ll show you some of the cool places I go when the van needs a break!

If you like this kind of content and would like to support what I’m about then I’d love to have you as a Patron. I also want to know what kind of content would be helpful to you. Ask me those pressing questions you’re afraid to ask. Let me know what’s on your mind. Follow on this journey and let’s grow this community together.
