    Happy New Years to you both. Looking forward to seeing what kind of content you're going to put out this year. It's been amazing watching your channel grow this past year, very impressed. Definitely inspiring us 🙂 We just picked up the ebook – don't know why we haven't done it yet, especially since we'll be moving into a van full-time this year! If you guys are going to be passing by Thunder Bay this summer please let us know, we'd love to meet up 🙂

    House sitting in the winter! What a great idea! This may be how I get my wife to agree to van living, lol. How long before you get the urge to hit the road again?

    I really enjoy your videos, seeing your adventures and the interviews. I'd love to see an updated van tour to see how you all have settled in after a while, what worked and what didn't, what you've added and if you've ditched anything that surprised you.

    I really enjoy your channel and look forward to seeing all your new videos. From my family to yours we wish you a Happy new year and all the best this year.

    This YouTube channel is absolutely awesome! Really love it! Thank you for this and will keep telling people about it! It's exciting to see how there are definitely really interesting housing options out there for folks interested in saving money, spending more time outside, getting more minimalist, traveling with their home, and maybe going off-grid. With ways to help the environment such as veggie oil as fuel, compost toilets, reclaimed building materials, etc. It's a little saddening some of the laws about alternative homes in some places…the idea of it being illegal for someone to be in shelter just because it's on wheels or small or something seems kinda bizarre and even somewhat cruel. But luckily I see there are many people successfully making this type of lifestyle and communities work! Very awesome and timely info. Blessings.

    So I just quit my job 2 weeks ago and my husband and I are buying an RV next week to move our family into. If you are ever in Reno…

    thank you for the videos, the ideas and the inspirations your videos give!

    I just found your channel. GREAT STUFF! I'm looking into the van life and wondering how you make income. I see a lot of sites that break down costs of things, but not a whole lot on how to start up businesses or sources of income to be able to get into this lifestyle. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated! (Or maybe a new video series for you…?) 🙂

    ive just started watching your videos, have gotten alot of useful information, im researching, planning, making the leap into van life, currently i live in a studio apartment but have a nomadic spirit, my only question is, what about the few items that you just dont want or refuse to get rid of, that wont fit into the van, ive thaught of renting a storage unit but i dont know???? any thaughts? 🙂
