    Hello all!

    I wanted to get your take on van dwelling. If you don't know what it is, look it up! Personally, I think it looks like a lot of fun if you've got the financial means and time. Seems like a pretty groovy way to travel around. Anyone have any opinions or stories if you were/are a van dweller. If so I'd like to pick your brain 🙂

    Hey there!

    This is my dream, haha.

    I've looked a lot into it, but I've never done it.  If I can manage it financially I'd love to take a few months off and travel around. I've found some cool things that would be useful depending on the space you'd have: a non-electric washer , composting toilet,  and a solar stove. Also there is this couple that travels in an RV (now a boat) but they have a lot of useful info in general and travel tips for the US. Their site is http://www.gonewiththewynns.com.

    Hi Cruzzie,

    Not sure my experience counts as van dwelling, but I have just finished my first 3 month stint of living in a van.  After the winter I will return to it.  I bought a very small van and was so excited I have buzzed all over the uk's remote beautiful places.  I have a bed, a stove and sink and a little storage space.  I thought I was going to have three months of glorious and much needed isolation, but i found the van was a people magnet and it has turned out to be a time of reconnection with important people.  I conclude that when you give the universe a stir by living differently then surprising things happen.

    I've been looking into this idea for over 3 years. The only thing that has stopped me so far is I have 2 dogs.

    You must have had a great time Finzy! I'm considering doing something like this – buying a van, loading the road bike and hitting the road! Did you tour the whole of the UK? I quite fancy going a bit further afield but would need to plan around my daughter who I have every other weekend. I'm working on a plan to tie our weekends in and take her with me, she'll love it!

    What's your plans for the next trip after this cold and dreary winter?
