Lifestyling

Enjoying life to the fullest

So now that your van is done/almost done/done enough, it’s time to start thinking about hitting the road and fun things to do once you’re on the road. Climbing, mountain biking, surfing and snowboarding are my personal favorites. However, when I’m on a climbing trip, I consider everything that is not climbing related to be Lifestyling. And Lifestyling is really where it’s at. Climbing makes for a fun day, but if you start that day with fresh banana bread in the van, a bocci ball warm up, climb all afternoon and wind down with cold beer and hot springs, now that is a great day. Stringing together great days is really what vanlife is all about, making lifestyling an important part of the equation.

Here are a few things worth keeping in the van to make life better:
