SATURDAY JULY 30

WORKSHOP :  V&M Van Life
Four Season Camping
Let’s Talk Winter
Time: TBA

We shed most of our possessions. We bought a van. Upfitted in 36 days.

On the road since 2/26/2018
Over 75,000km driven

V&M Van Life started with a desire to escape the stress and financial burden of our lifestyle. In preparation, we transitioned to location independent and nomadic income. We downsized to living tiny to lower the cost of living.

We built our Canadian four season camper van, equipped with everything both a digital and analog nomad needs to live on the road.

Winter van life in Canada has a different pace and vibe to it and with two Canadian van life winters behind us, and our third winter coming soon – we’re starting to think Winter might be our favourite time to explore.
