About Us

River and Vanagon at campground

Our Approach


A man, a van, and a dog named River.  What started as a simple adventure in 2012 to travel and live in a van for a year has shown itself to be more than a passing life phase. In 2016, with a new Vanagon and a a co-pilot named River, we set off to live this life the way we see fit.

Our Story


In a time of exploding population it is important to assess one's own footprint on this earth. Ultimately, we need very little possessions and very little space to thrive. My hope for this blog is that it be a testament to this.

Meet the Team

Currently, the team consists of myself, Ron Hope, my currently unnamed Vanagon, and my adventure dog River.
