Living in a van isn’t the most usual lifestyle. And with an unusual life comes many questions.
Few people will ever understand what living in a van for months on end entails. The good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly. It’s not the easiest or most comfortable way to live, but it is one hell of an adventure.
With that, I’ve decided to create a post answering some of the most common questions I get asked about life on the road:
Where do we shower?
I’ll be the first to admit I don’t shower nearly as much as I want to. I’m (kinda) gross sometimes, and taking a shower/bath whenever I want is one of the main things I am looking forward to after this adventure. Going 4, 5, or 6 days without a proper shower is all too common in this lifestyle.
My hair gets greasy after two days, so yeah, I’m sure I look disgusting 99% of my road life.
What we did is get a fitness membership at a national gym chain. So whenever we pass a decent-sized town or city, there’s a good chance we are getting a shower. What’s the bad part? Whenever you want to shower you have to work out. And when you’re in the shower you have to leave and go back outside to your 40 degree van.
