    The Definition of Partners | ft. Samandkellysvan

    Today we are joined by one of the most positive and uplifting couples I know, Sam & Kelly! They have been such great friends over the past few years and I can’t wait for you to hear all about their journey from being a couple in high school to living in a van with their dog sunny! We get into how van life has impacted their long-term relationship, prioritizing hobbies for joy (whether you’re in a van or not), and what they are manifesting for the future. They are two people that you can’t help but feel good around and it definitely translates in this episode!

    Single-Handedly Saving Dogs’ Lives | ft. Lauren, The Animal Pad

    Single-Handedly Saving Dogs’ Lives | ft. Lauren, The Animal Pad

    Today Lauren from “The Animal Pad'' is giving us a peek into her world of animal rescue! The passion that this woman has for animal rescue pours out of her, as you’ll see in this episode! She shares with us some first hand stories about dog rescues in Baja, Mexico, her experience with compassion fatigue, the red flags you need to look out for if you’re going to buy from a breeder or a rescue (she spills the tea on this since she just rescued 111 dogs from a breeder!), and how you can help. Animal rescue is an intense yet very rewarding operation and we shined the light on both!

    What Don’t We Talk About | ft. Destiny & Liz

    What Don’t We Talk About | ft. Destiny & Liz

    Destiny and Liz from @choosethepathyoutake join us this week to talk all about following your gut feelings + making an income on the road. They have been living on the road for 8 months so we dive into what that looks like as a BIPOC & LGBTQ+ couple with two dogs and their favorite thing about van life (+ not so favorite experiences). And they share many reminders that if van life is what you want to do, you CAN make it work!

    Queer Safety & a Vintage Van | ft. Gene & Shay

    Queer Safety & a Vintage Van | ft. Gene & Shay

    Today we are sitting down with my good friends Gene + Shay! They are a queer couple that started their van life journey in 2020 in their 1984 dodge campervan and two cats Bean + Sprout. We’re diving into what it’s like to have two cats on the road, queer van life including how Gene (they/them) navigates places as a non-binary individual, their timelines of coming out, and the lessons that they have learned on the road. They also remind us that things will test you on the road but it’s always worth it!
