HI All!

I read the magazine named; The Backwoodsman magazine I pick up at Sh*T Mart ( Walmart). The May/June 2020 Issue has an article called, Living the Van Life a Cheaper Way to Travel By Kristen Cooke.

I am sure you have to subscribe online to read it. Otherwise, your local Walmart, Barnes & Noble and local book stores sells the magazine.

I hope in 2 years or less to live in a van. I do have $$ to buy one but need for $$$ insurance, etc. right now.

I'm curious if they discussed the psychological effects doing something that it technically illegal (or at least against public health code) in most places.

Having lived in a van for three years in Los Angeles, I have great empathy for anyone doing it in covid19 times.

I just picked up a copy today so I could read it, thanks for the suggestion. I am also planning a van build out so I can hopefully leave everything in the next few years.

Having lived 'illegally' for about 34yrs, I'd say that the psychological effects in my case (& many others that I've met doing the same) have been overwhelmingly positive.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$30.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $30.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $30.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $30.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $30.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
