That moment you go to take the trash out and accidentally start wrenching on your van. I figured I was already cold... how long could draining the radiator and removing the alternator to get to the last spark plug, take? #vanning#vanlife#ford#econoline#clubwagonxlt#3rdgenford
“There is no such joy in the tavern as upon the road thereto.” • • Lots of love to a lot of people, most of you know who are. Incredibly supportive friends and family and I couldn’t be happier. Happy holidays fools. • • • • • #yosemite#vanlife#mountains#hiking

Even secluded islands have secluded islands! Who woulda thought! Spent a coupla days on the hardly populated island of Lanai, four wheeling in a Chevy up the craziest ridges, leading to mountain top rainforest cliffs. And that was after blowing dust through Hawaii’s version of Garden of the Gods and creepily staring out at the abandoned Navy Barge at Shipwreck Beach. The only other people we saw passed us while we were thumbing for help waking up with a dead battery! How convenient 🙌 and then this view! Boyfriend made me swim to that rock where I saw a freaking SHARK swim below me. I survived. Just swimming with the flow... #justkeepswimming#lanai#sharkbay#lanai#maui#hawaii#privatebeaches#sharks#vanlife#gratefulforeverything#sweetheartrock#malasincaves
Throwback to the van trip to Nova Scotia, Stephanie took this photo of me as she watched me ride some tiny swell on a beach full of smooth boulders. It was a fun challenge to catch and ride these waves quickly before slamming into the rocks. Stephanie’s skills with the camera and understanding surfing impress me so much. I am so grateful for my love, my life and what I get to do. 🙏🏼 . 📸: @sj_leblanc . . . . . . . #thankful#novascotia#pintail#swoop#bottomturn#coldwatersurf#vanlife @gtnthvn #surf#eastcoast#grateful#surfing @mainesurfersunion

Our first real date was three years ago tonight! Michael made a reservation (a whole three weeks before!) for dinner and a comedy show. Little did he know, the show was at my best friend’s family’s theater. A place I grew up in. A place I’ve always said I’ll get married in. Every year since, we’ve re-enacted that first date on the Tuesday before Christmas. Tonight is no different. Cheers to three more years of date nights and laughter and everything in between. How good it feels to be loved by you!
Now we're cooking with gas! Not just a fun expression but an accurate description of today's accomplishments as I filled and tested the van's propane system. The propane system has actually been installed for months but, frankly, I was scared to fill it. Since I designed and installed the system myself I was certain it would leak and either suffocate me in my sleep or explode when I struck a match. This van project has pushed me out of my comfort zone in many ways but this felt the most tangible to me. But with 10.5 gallons of propane on board, no leaks, and the stove working properly I'm ready to call this one a win. Bring on the stir-frys! #vandemonium#vanlife#vanbuild
C’EST OFFICIEL!!! Je pars découvrir l’ALASKA à partir du mois d’août jusqu’au mois d’octobre 🤩 On parle d’un voyage d’environ 30000 kilomètres 😬🙈 mais cette fois ci, ce ne sera pas comme mon "roadtest" à Miami.. Cette fois-ci, je veux découvrir les parc nationaux Canadiens sur mon chemin tel que Buffalo, Banff, Jasper, Denali, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, et tellement d’endroits magnifiques à travers tout ca 😍 M’arrêter où je veux! Quand je veux! Pour le temps que je veux! 🙏🏻 Le style de voyage qu’on fait qu’une seule fois dans sa vie! Parcontre il me reste plusieurs choses à ajouter à Madventure avant mon départ...roof rack, l’électricité, système de chauffage, l’eau et une douche extérieure mais j’ai encore plusieurs mois avant mon départ.Les prochains mois s’annoncent chargés! 😅💪🏻 Aujourd’hui j’ai réglé une étape importante du projet. Après plus d’une semaine sans mon véhicule... il est finalement revenu complètement transformé. Il me fallait un véhicule prêt à traverser n’importe quelle condition de route et de climat. J’ai donc fait installé des pneus 4 saisons hors route ainsi qu’un lift kit pour avoir la tranquilité de pouvoir passer presque n’importe où! Le résultat est assez incroyable comparé à avant!! 🤩 Le plus fou dans tout ca c’est que les modifications "esthétiques" sont loins d’être terminées... attendez de voir le roof rack que je veux construire 🙈 Et oui... on parle bien d’un Ford Transit Connect...LE truck reconnu comme étant un véhicule commercial transformé en campeur 100% autonome pour 2 personnes 😂🙈 Pour celui ou celle qui aimerait faire cette aventure avec moi ou du moins une partie, je vous invites à m’écrire en privé pour tous les détails. On se reparle bientôt! 👋🏻 #vanlife#campervan#adventure#alaska#roadtrip#ford#fordtransitcamper
I know there’s some quote about laughter being the best medicine somewhere, but boy is it true. I love laughing, but if you ask Zach what’s my most annoying feature it would be my nervous laugh😂 ever since I can remember I’ve laughed at everything I’m not suppose to. But the problem is I can NOT control it. I’ve tried and tried and tried. One time we were in Sams and my little sister fell off the bench and bumped her head really bad. I’m 7 1/2 years older than her so I’m assuming I was like 10 and she was 3ish. Y’all I couldn’t stop laughing. I still remember how mad my mom was at me that day😂 it was a really bad fall, like where they almost took her in to get an X-ray and here I am with tears in my eyes trying not to laugh. 🙈 Zach always gets so frustrated when he gets hurt bc he knows I’m in a corner holding my breath with tears in my eyes trying not to laugh all while trying to make sure he’s okay😂🙈 . Someone please tell me they have this problem too. Like I don’t want anyone to get hurt so why do I laugh?! Ughh things I’ll never understand. But please know if you get hurt around me I promise I’m not laughing bc you’re hurt, I truly can’t control it😂 📷 @sydneyslighh
It's official, #newzealand is so damn beautiful, it doesn't need filters. 🌊☀️ . On our way up the west coast, we made a quick pitstop in #hokitika (highly recommend) to enjoy a little lunch on the beach & reggae music from a nearby festival. 🍎🥑 . We ended up wandering into a local market where we picked up some #ecofriendly & #locallysourced hand lotion. 🐐🐝 . Returning to our van we discovered that we had left our fridge plugged in and completely drained our battery... Oops! Life #ontheroad isn't always perfect, but it is a constant #adventure 🗺✌ . . .
One year ago today we moved into our little experiment on wheels. No marital murders have occurred, the dogs keep us outside a lot and in the fresh air, and we are still very content with a tiny life❤️🤙🏻 this was taken 2 weeks later on Juncalito beach, #bcs 😘👌🏻#livingtiny #vanlife#tundrader#toyota
Oh that blue on blue! 💙 The magical infinity pool peering over the waters of Lake Argyle in Western Australia's Kimberley's. Here our 2 night stay quickly turned into 9! And why the hell not! 😍 #wanderrichly
