BACK TO MEXICO // the road to van life in mexico

VAN LIFE VLOG | We're Going Back to Mexico // baja bound ep. 1
↠ shop our Vegan Cookbook ↞
We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!
The day begins with us bidding farewell to Bob and our office space in Toronto, Ontario. Challenges ahead: crossing the American border, 34 hours of driving and spending 24/7 together with no escape! Oh van life, never a dull moment.

    You guys do not have to refrigerate pickles. They are preserved with the brine they are in and will not go bad. Same with catsup, mustard, sauerkraut, etc.

    Your alarm is the same sound my earthquake app makes when we have a 3.0 or higher. I freaked for a second there....(Alaska is my home and yes that EQ was horrible). On a diff note, I bet you guys are thrilled to leave the winter behind and get heat and sunshine. That is sure what I am craving about now!!!!!! Thanks for taking us with you.

    I vent a window right behind my stove in my class B and put a shower cap over the smoke detector. I bought a black cap but it's still pretty prominent so it's easy to remember to remove right after cooking. No alarms yet.

    Horseshoe Bend is amazing, the south rim of the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff is very cute and quirky, Tucson is absolutely amazing and there is a yummy vegan burger place (Beaut Burger) in the Mercado San Augustin! Tucson also has some really great hikes back into canyons if you get a chance to go (Romero Pools - About 3 Miles round trip and you can camp at Catalina State Park. There is a Planet Fitness down the road from here 😉 Seven Falls in Sabino Canyon- About 7 miles round trip and TOTALLY worth the hike right now! Eat your lunch at the falls and watch the desert scenery! Pima Canyon - An easy, choose your length hike!) Tumerico Restaurant in San Hughes is also veg/vegan and very good!! 4th Avenue is quirky and fun to peruse and downtown has started to pick up steam! Good Coffee Shops: Presta, Cafe Luce, Ren Coffeehouse, Savaya Watching the sunset at Star Pass is always relaxing and fun with a picnic dinner. Some really good yoga studios: 4th ave ($5), Sessions Yoga ($7ish), Oasis (not sure) The freeway runs through the west side of Tucson, so you’ll have to use surface streets if you decide to go. But it’s worth it to see the personality and charm! Can you tell I love it? It’s because it’s my home town! Let me know if you need any other recommendations or a tour guide if you decide to go!!

  51. Payton Wells

    Omg and Tohonochul and the Tucson Botanical Gardens are my absolute favorite places to go. If you had to pick one I would say Tohonochul!

    For me, it’s the butt sweat from driving that really makes me feel nasty. It doesn’t matter the temp, obviously it’s not as bad after summer, but I always get that swamp ass feeling XDDD

  58. Immortalkalashnikov

    Why would you go to Mexico? My family is from Michoacán and not even we would go. The Cartels own and operate every inch of Mexico. Even the tourist attractions are all influenced by Mexican Drug Cartels in some way or another. Where my family is from, you can’t even eat at a restaurant without seeing a bunch of pick ups full of men armed with AKs. I wouldn’t push my luck down there. Mexico is a land of wolves right now.

    Hike ‘the wave’! It’s an off the beaten path hike and the end is unreal. It’s in Northern AZ not toooo far away from Horseshoe Bend. OH, and also check out a slot canyon! There is one right near Horseshoe Bend. They are stunning, and will get you amazing video footage and IG pics

    I have long been curious as to how "private" the showers actually are in gyms like planet fitness. It doesn't seem like they are very private at all but that would be a great topic you could cover while you are on the road. The reality of showering in a gym while travelling.

    We are a couple old farts from San Diego who are converting a van as we speak. We go to Baja all the flipping time and would love to have you park here before you cross the border (you're welcome to use our shower in our suite in the back of our property!). There are some real "don't do's" on going to Baja these days with the border drama that's going on and we'd love to share some good intel with you. @tinyWattsSolar can vouch for us (they installed our solar/electrical system last month while staying with us!

    Very good suggestions about places to explore in Arizona but I think you can't go wrong checking out the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous (RTR) in Quartsite. You'll get a great idea of the van/RV/Scoolie, etc scene and meet some amazing people, including literally hundreds of van life USlikesrs, Might be interesting to listen to the audiobook Normadland on your way to the RTR. Give you some background on the event and different aspects of the nomad life.
