I’ve lived in my van for the past 10 years. It’s helped me avoid rent payments, landlords and security deposits while I’ve traveled for film projects and surf trips. Recently I bought a large Mercedes Sprinter van and have been traveling in it a lot. This past spring was unseasonably cold in California and the waves weren’t very good so my girlfriend Anna and I drove east into the deserts of the Southwestern USA. All the locations are within a day’s drive of our hometowns in Southern California. I’ve always traveled a lot to foreign countries but never explored much into this part of America. We found some really special places that’s inspired us to keep searching. It’s pretty cool to think that you can explore your whole life and never see every nook and cranny.
