Honestly, I will feel like a failure if I don’t go back to van living.

I don’t know if anyone can understand this.

My goal has never been to go back to home living. My goal is to make van living work.

Thing is, T and J make me feel so welcome, it’s hard to leave.  I hope I am as much a blessing to them, as they are to me.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    It’s hard to give up comfort. There are many risks that you don’t face living in a house. I don’t believe that living in a van is more dangerous. It seems more dangerous which is different.

    I think it takes something extra to make van living work. There’s a momentum. Like anything else, it takes time to set up a routine. It should be more comfortable to live in the van than an house.

    My impression from Two Dog is that it takes some time. He’s been doing it for 20 years. It’s a matter of learning to repair the van yourself, having a steady source of income, and a few other things. I think if you could fix your own van, and had a steady job, that would help alot.

    I think so too. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to fix the van by myself but if I earn enough money I”ll be able to hire people to do it so that’s the long term plan.

    While I’m with T and J, I’ll work on my job situation and also a couple of other income producing projects and I’ll get the current van issues taken care. I will also proceed with my plan to pull out the back bench seat and set up a “bed” on the floor so I can stretch out a bit.

    Just like many things in my life, it’s a marathon, rather than a 50 yard dash. I need to pace myself.

    Thanks for your thoughts Ryu! 🙂

    Main thing is to do what you feel is right for you at the time, like you said pace yourself, don’t come out of the box trying to do everything at once. I have been planning to do this for 3yrs, and it is going to take some time to figure out what I’m going to do first, should be moving into van by Feb.15, permanently. Was afraid that my fav blogger was gone.

    Life should be Fun!
