Playing Is Now the Perfect Time to Pack Your Life into a Van?

The couple says they have traveled to 3 countries, 32 states, and 30 national parks while continuing to work remotely. On average they only spend around $1400 to $2000 a month on expenses for them and their 2 dogs, which they say is a drastic savings compared to leading a more traditional home life.

"With COVID, I think people are realizing what a dream [this way of life] can be... it is a lot more sustainable," Natalie says, noting their van is off the grid and more sustaining in more ways compared to a stationary home.

They tell Dr. Ian Smith that downsizing and eliminating much of the excesses of daily life has also helped their overall mindsets and mental health, has allowed them to connect much more with nature, and has provided them a new adventure every day as they travel the country, work and visit loved ones.
