I’ll always look back and remember that my first home was a van.
Nearly two months after arriving back to Michigan from Europe, I am preparing to embark on yet another adventure that will hide me from a mortgage and 401k as long as possible.
Some people say I’m doing this because I am afraid of something. That I’m constantly running away from my responsibilities.
Well of course I am. *lights candy cigarette* Adulthood can suck.
And that’s why Josh and I have renovated a van to road trip the United States.
We aren’t the first millennials to embark on this adventure, and we certainly won’t be the last. Chances are, you are dreaming at this exact moment, wishing one day to have an epiphany, pack your bags, sell your suburban SUV for an old rusty 1960s retro van, and take off into the sunset heading for the west coast.
