Interactive Music Map of U.S.

As the rig rolls on the long dusty highway, the driver's mind is soaring above the landscape in all directions, soaking in the beauty, harnessing it, igniting it as fuel for expanding the mind. Past relationships, current ones, meaning, career, goals, every thought taking its turn for its few seconds of glory. The driver gets this feeling every time the landscape opens up. The rustic cattle towns of Texas, the old mining towns of California, the forests of Minnesota, mountains of the Carolinas, the list goes on. The driver's life adventure can't be bottled up, summarized, or put into a recipe, yet the feeling can be looked at, felt, and told by others.  

 Here is a map of the United States. Each region has its own playlist on Spotify.

This Tiger King Chevy Astro Van Is More Exotic Than Any Repo’d Ferrari


"It's priced at $295,000, which is as much of a joke as the van itself... The shop's for-sale ad says that 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to an animal charity, though we have a hunch said cause won't be Big Cat Rescue."

RVs 4 MDs

A Facebook group called RVs 4 MDs has connected RV and camper owners with "frontline healthcare workers" across the country to give nurses, doctors, and staff members exposed to COVID-19 a safe place to sleep while isolating. Read about how the RVs 4 MDs Facebook group works.

CNN on Van Life During Coronavirus

"People living in vans and RVs are getting squeezed during this pandemic," is how CNN opens, and for many of us, this is true. BLM lands, campsites, gyms, cafes, and more are all closed. However, how bad it really is varies depending on who you talk to: "This whole thing which is happening right now is really sort of highlighting to me what a good decision this really was." Read a few perspectives and an overview of what's currently happening.

Man Leaning on Van in Field VanLife

Is Van Life a Freedom Movement or an Economic Crisis?

"Since the path toward upward mobility still seemed blocked, this time by high rents and soaring home prices, we chose the one that went to Zion and the Badlands, to Yellowstone and Yosemite, to Red Rocks and Mount Rushmore instead."

"Whether people live in a vehicle as a way to save money or as emergency shelter because they can't afford rent, one thing remains clear: there's a reckoning of the American Dream happening on the road today. Its tenets and promises, even the merit of its success, are being questioned and recalibrated by a nation straining under the pressures of widening inequality, a lack of affordable housing, and climate change."
