The timing and the experience of New Zealand has changed the wild in my dream to live the van life to the wild in attitude toward making it a lifestyle. Since last February, it's been a mission to learn everything there is to learn and create my perspective and niche as a van lifer, world class ultra endurance mountain biker, and budding outdoor adventure landscape photographer. I've well underestimated the time and effort necessary to dedicated to the granular of building this lifestyle from the ground up. With that lesson, I am appreciative of those that are out there on the road today. So it begins, I've emotionally committed to the trials and tribulations of designing my own van lifestyle.
