We just got our campervan! This dream h as been a long time in the making. This is the first post of our Vanlife Series where we explore why we chose vanlife and what we’re planning to do now that we have our van.
When we first got married in 2009, we had very low salaries in a HCOL area. But, we still wanted to go on vacation. So, we went camping and realized we loved it. In this post, I share everything you need to know to go camping for a cheap long weekend.
With all of the uncertainty with COVID, our previous travel hacking strategy no longer works. We can’t plan the trip and then solve the puzzle of how to fund it.
