I've been living in the Van for half a year - 6 whole months. Six months of trial and error, daily growth, and a whole lot of experiences. I've made friends and built relationships. My life is a living testament of the beauty that can come from living life outside the comfort zone, while seeking experiences over the fanatical materials of our time.
I wasn't sure why I wanted to live in a Van when I first chose the life I’m now living - it’s almost like it chose me.
I knew what I didn't want and that was reason enough for me - I struggle sacrificing integrity for things I deem pointless and un-life affirming. I've been driven toward excellence since the beginning, driven through the sport of wrestling. Through wrestling and the thankful guidance of mentors I’ve had growing up, I’ve found the strength to face the world face first - in it’s present moment. I have nothing to fear - nothing but the thought of regret after a wasted life manifested by repeated excuses created to keep me comfortable - thats what I fear!
My buddy and I recently started a Podcast that is being produced from within a Van at different adventurous locations each episode. Our first episode was shot at Rodeo Beach - the Golden Gate National Recreation Area - where we backed the Van up; opened the doors; set up our cameras; lifted the 1990’s snakeskin designed TV dinner table into position; brewed some tea on the pocket rocket backpacking stove; sat on the 26” fitness ball, and cooler; and began to record our first episode. Crowds of people walked by in curiosity as two guys hunkered down in the back of a Van, recording their show on a sunny January day, with the waves crashing on the horizon.
The podcast is directed toward Millennials or anyone seeking freedom through adventure. We’ve both climbed successful Mountains - with me on the wrestling mat and Jason in his professional training career. We thrive in the hustle which brought us to the podcast. Both of us looking to create sustainable passive income to put our working careers on automation, while freeing ourselves the ability to enjoy the most precious resource of all: time!
Our Podcast will be an intimate journey where you’ll be with us the entire way - through the grit and the grime, to the freeing of time. We see a different path calling for inspection - one with adventure, lasting memories, and impacted lives - with the changing ages isn’t it time to consider what the modern day American Dream could look like? Jump on the plane as its lifting, the world is shifting; no longer wanting mammoth houses, white picket fences, or lack of resources. This is the dawn of a new era - where time is directed toward passionate endeavors; with growth and contribution resulting. Moments being lost in the memories of making - open your mind - let your story unfold.
