About Us

We left “normal” life behind and now live in our self-converted van, Mark. Our time in the military and backpacking adventures made van life an easy choice. The leap into van life and a self-conversion can be exciting yet daunting. We want to share our experiences and provide resources to get you from zero to van life!
