    I'm a leaf on the wind...

    Hey folks! Back in March, I set off in my camper-equipped Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, with the intention of wandering around the country with NO plan, and sustaining the overland lifestyle while on the road. As I'm typing this, it's been 4.5 months of living in the Jeep. I left...

    Looking for place to stay: San Diego

    I've been meaning to follow-up on this thread. Sorry that it took me so long. I'm extremely grateful for everyone's help! It was challenging coming in from Anza-Borrego, and picking my way westward around Julian and Ramona with the intention of spending some time on the coast. However, I...

    Thanks for your feedback everyone. I spent last night in Anza-Borrego near Ocotillo. That was fun. It was certainly hot, but not the worst I've encountered so far.

    Hello from van-life! (sort of)

    Thanks, Jake! A kindred spirit! I remember catching one of your episodes earlier this year. Possibly Yosemite. I really enjoyed it! I'll have to go back and catch up. The only major goal I have is to make this lifestyle "indefinite". Otherwise, I'm just going wherever the wind blows...

    Looking for place to stay: San Diego

    Hey everyone, Starting from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I've been traveling across the country in my Jeep for the past four months. It's gone smoothly. I target National Forests, and coffee shops with Internet access from which to work. I finally made it to California, with the intention of...

    Hello from van-life! (sort of)

    Hey, gang! My name is Chris Shontz. Since mid-March, 2017, I've been on-the-road, living in my camper-equipped Jeep Wrangler and traveling around the country. I've known of the OB community for quite some time, heard so many great things, and wanted to check it out for myself.
