I Wrote a Guide!

Do you dream of living full time on the road but feel paralyzed by all the unknowns? What vehicle should I get? How am I going to make money? How do I get my mail? Where can I park? Well…look no further! I wrote a how-to guide that answers all of those questions and it’s available for purchase today!

Here’s what’s inside:

Loaded with information that will save you countless hours of googling, research, dead ends, frustration and stress, this guide will give you the knowledge you need to become a successful modern nomad. Unlike other guides that send you to various websites and articles, I’ve done as much of the leg work as possible and compiled it all in one spot. Not only have I lived nomadically since 2017, gaining tons of personal experience, I’ve also sifted through loads of information collected from talking to other nomads and online research. All of this work, I believe, has resulted in the creme de la creme of  “vanlife” guides.

What you won’t find in this guide is a one size fits all answer wrapped up in a neat little bow. Vanlife is still real life, and life just ain’t that simple! In fact, living nomadically is much more complicated. This lifestyle change will take some trial and error and a lot of hard work on your end. If you don’t go into this with the willingness to grow and adapt, most likely you won’t succeed. Having the information in this guide will give you a huge leg up, but you will still need to make difficult decisions and do the emotional work that only you can do. Also, you won’t find any tips about traveling with kids in this guide. Unless you count pets as kids (I do!). I have a whole section about that!

If you are someone that wants a major life change but also wants to drastically reduce the ‘living on the road’ learning curve, this guide is for you! 

*This guide was written based on information for travel within the U.S. While you may still find valid and helpful information for travel outside the U.S., this guide will be most useful for nomadic life in the states. 

This comprehensive guide includes 5 sections:

Choosing Your Rig: Learn the common types of rigs you can live in and figure out which one is the best fit for you in regard to size, travel preferences, insurance and repairs.

Preparing to Live With Less: Advice and helpful tips to help ease the transition from a sticks and bricks house to a tiny home on wheels. 

The Basics: The meat of the whole guide! This section covers most FAQ’s, including: obtaining a legal domicile, how to receive mail, health insurance options, how to find parking, and everyday necessities like bathrooms, water, internet, etc. 

Money: How you make money on the road might be the number one question people have. There are so many ways to answer this question that it needed a section of its own. You will get a ton of resources and ideas on how to make the financial piece of this puzzle work. Additionally, I share my personal finances in hopes it will help you better understand what it may cost to sustain life on the road. 

Traveling With Pets: If you have a pet and want to live on the road, not to worry! It’s possible. This section gives you information on how to prepare your pet for becoming a nomad right along with you. 

Today, at 11 a.m. PDT it will be live in my shop! Regular price will be $37.50 but the first 50 people to purchase will get it for $24.99!

I worked really hard on this and I feel I’ve created a product that is going to be invaluable to people. If you have been feeling bogged down by all the research you’d have to do to figure out how to make this life work, go get this guide! I did it for you! It will hopefully empower you to take the next step in making your dream a reality. Mander on!

  1. Hi -I’ve been following your blog for about a year or so, and since you’ve been so determined to keep your rig on the road, even fixing mechanical problems and troubleshooting all sorts of engine/brake issues, etc. I bought the book so I could read more handy tips and info for when I’m closer to retirement and van-life trekking, and also support you! Good luck and I look forward to reading! -Kathleen H.

    • At the top right of the page are 4 dashes for a menu. In menu select shop and you will find her book there. As others have commented though, it says out of stock, for some reason.

    • Also, in the article itself, if you click on the blue word “shop” you get to the shop. And at the top, you can click on “shop”.

  2. Silly question… confirmation says I have two dnloads remaining and it never expires. Will I be able to print this? Congrats by the way. Excited for you🙉

  3. really cool blog my life long dream and your living it

  4. HI, I read your blog for the first time. I’ve been considering selling the large 2 story house and downsizing to a Tiny house or RV, and doing some traveling. Your way of living seems very interesting. Amazing that you’re handling by yourself some of the mechanical as well. You did a beautiful job on updating the interior of your Commander, and I like the larger shower area. How can I purchase the guide?
