  • We named this place “Helicopter Camp”...We were setting up the van above these coastal rock slabs when we heard a helicopter approaching. It was the Irish Coast Guard coming to airlift an injured man on the rocks below us. Onlookers said that the man tripped on the rocks while shore fishing and just couldn’t get up again - probably due to broken or fractured bones.
.
Imagine you’re having a lovely afternoon on the shore, catching fish for dinner...the next thing you know, you’re strapped to a paramedic and dangling from a helicopter over the open ocean. We felt really bad for the guy and also relieved when the rescue mission was over. That evening we fully appreciated the sunset view from our van, feeling thankful to be healthy and safe in this beautiful spot.

  • Day 5
We left the village where we spent the night and we had take our road to Norway.
On the way we stopped at two different archaeological sites where we learned some Norwegian legends.
We have also understood that here there are mosquitoes as big as flies. Around 13:00 we finally arrived in Oslo and started looking for a hostel. Needless to say, as soon as we were handed the keys to the room we had a shower. We knew we could take advantage of the light until midnight and we did a power nap .... about three hours! After dinner we went out, walked around the city and sadly discovered that after 20:00 supermarkets do not sell alcohol. No beer but we arrived at the Opera House just in time to see the sun goes down completely.

Giorno 5 
Lasciato il villaggio dove abbiamo passato la notte ci siamo rimessi in viaggio verso la Norvegia. Sulla strada ci siamo fermati in due diversi siti archeologici dove abbiamo appreso qualche leggenda norvegese. Abbiamo anche potuto constatare che qui esistono davvero zanzare grosse come mosche. Verso le 13 siamo finalmente arrivati ad Oslo e abbiamo cominciato a cercare un ostello. Inutile dire che appena ci hanno consegnato le chiavi della stanza ci siamo buttati in doccia. Sapevamo di potere sfruttare la luce fino a mezzanotte e abbiamo fatto un power nap.... di circa tre ore! Dopo la cena siamo usciti, abbiamo passeggiato per la città e abbiamo tristemente scoperto che dopo le 20:00 i supermercati non vendono alcol. Niente birretta ma siamo arrivati al Teatro dell'opera giusto in tempo per vedere il sole calare completamente.

  • #keepvanlifereal ! Sometimes this is what our days looked like when weather wasn’t on our side. The rain would start pit pattering on the van and we would quickly throw everything inside. Sometimes it was 20 + mile winds. Sometimes it was cold days in the mountains, with layers and layers of clothes on (like in this video). Most days we lived OUT of the van, but some days, we would live IN the van. That is one reason we decided to invest in something a little bigger. For days when we have no choice but to climb inside and retreat from the permitting weather. More updates on our new rig coming soon 💃

  • Sometimes you gotta get down and dirty to keep the good times rolling...
-
We set out that morning in search of hot springs that where rumored to lie somewhere deep in the Oregon desert. Eventually we came upon this sketchy road that looked like it hadn’t seen a set of tires in years, but it seemed to head in the right direction, so we decided to take it. About ten miles later I suddenly noticed a major drop in boost from our Turbo. My voice shook as I hit the brakes “Uhm, We might have a problem Michelle” She immediately reached for the CB radio and alerted everyone that we needed to stop...
-
Bill and Brian each crackled back over the air “Copy that guys” and the caravan came to a halt. After a few minutes crawling under the van we discovered that our air filter was completely clogged up. So we got to work, detached the filter, and began cleaning out all the ultra fine dust that had accumulated over the past few weeks in the desert. We then sacrificed one of my tee shirts and wrapped it around the filter for a little extra protection as we still had a few days to go before seeing civilization again...
-
The fix worked perfectly and we got right back on the trail, which turned out to be one of the gnarliest and most technical off-road excursions we have ever been on. Eventually the road completely disappeared and we where blazing our own path through the desert just following a compass heading — it was awesome. The drive was a total adrenaline rush from start to finish, we overcame countless obstacles and even got the van nearly airborne when I hit a washed out riverbed going a littleee too fast 😬...
-
By the time we reached camp we where beyond filthy, inside the van was a total wreck, and the bumpers had some nice new scars to show off. But we where all smiling ear to ear. We had pushed ourselves and our vehicles to the limit, got down and dirty, and earned every minute spent soaking in those hot springs that evening...
-
Thanks @volcom for hooking us up with the gear that survived some serious abuse this trip... Especially that tee shirt (It’s a little stained now, but I’m still wearin’ it and it will always remind me of this epic day 🤘🏼) #truetothis

  • It was fourth grade when I decided I was going to have a VW van someday. 
I remember going to car shows and seeing VW buses and vans with their tops poped open to show the glorious playground that was inside, each one as spectacular as their owners... oh and the stories they would share of their travels still resonate in my head. I just couldn't wait to have adventures of my own. .
.
Here I am now with my dream vehicle and a family of my own to make memories with. Isn't  it amazing how things work out sometimes? .
. 
What is even more incredible,  is the community of van lifers that we have met and ultimately have become friends with on the road. I have never been around a more positive group of inspiring individuals ever... I feel like I am getting to better myself being outside my comfort zone and not to mention the things I have gotten to see and be a part of. ~ This is truely the best thing I could have hoped for.
.
.
If there is something that you want to do and it consumes your every thought, just make it happen! This will be the best thing you could do for yourself. 
The worst thing that could happen is you try and it doesn't work out. That just puts you right back to the situation that you are in now..

  • This photo was taken 2 weeks into living nomadic, we ventured into the hills of Utah to escape the 100 degree weather outside and found a spot without another soul in sight to make camp.
This was also the first time we found out about the dreaded “Vanagon elevation sickness” unable to start our van with the nearest cell service 2 hours away and no idea what to do.. so we did nothing.. we didn’t even give it a second thought, we grabbed our little fam and headed out for a walk to take in our “private” little campsite in the Utah hills and it was nothing short of breathtaking.
The following day we pushed the van for a few hundred yards and she started right up without any other issues.
.
This was our first van issue while living on the road one of many to come but this was the moment we learned how to deal with the issues that arise living this lifestyle and that’s just to sit back, smile, and know in the end ITS ALL GOING TO BE O.K. 🤙🏻♥️
