A Case for Vandwelling

I thought that I was settling down to have a baby, but the settling down part may be shorter lived than I expected.

In reality, I am still quite itinerant with my boy. Silas and I sleep in at least three different houses each week – our primary home (where we rent a room), my brother’s house (where I go to school), and David’s house (my beloved).

So, we basically DO live out of my car. Pulling clothes out of my trunk the other day, I had the thought, “I should just keep my clear plastic drawer bins in my trunk for our clothes.”

That is when it hit me, “Man, I wish we had a van!”

I actually DON’T want an RV like the one I had. It was too big.

When I first started dreaming of this lifestyle, I was shopping for a van. I moved up to the class C RV for comfort, but am back to my original thinking that I want to live in a van.

I’m thinking something like a used Roadtrek.

What I love about a van plan:

1) You really can stealth camp, which saves a ton of money.

2) It’s a real ‘mom’ car, with rear passenger seats for car seats.

2) You really can use it to drive to work without getting strange looks.

3) You really do have to live simply!

4) You can live very, very cheaply!

I’m not sure I have it in me to be a homeschooling momma, so probably would have to be settled by the time he starts kindergarten.

That gives me, what, four more years?
