After a long 4 months of this VAN LIFE BUILD project we finally have enough electricity, water and other essentials in place to put our new tiny home on wheels to the off-grid test. We head 3 hours north of Toronto to explore some of Canada's most stunning wilderness. But, of course, van life has it's highs and lows, and relearning how to find stealth camping spots presents us with our first van challenge. Sorry again to the kind gentleman who we accidentally trespassed on his property 😅. We then realize our electrical system really isn't complete without our solar panels and we're limited on how long we can camp out off-grid. No one say van life is easy but nothing good comes easy... amiright?

How Did We Get Here?
Abandoning our Van in Africa bit.ly/2Kff0HT
After an incredible 3 years of living, working, and traveling in our self converted Sprinter Van we made the very tough decision to abandon it in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. As it has for all of us this global pandemic has flipped our world upside down. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. Halting our dream of driving around the world was a hard pill to swallow which is why we knew we needed a big project to keep our mind + body busy while social distancing back here in Toronto. Enter building an off-grid tiny house on wheels!! This is going to be our 3rd time converting an empty cargo van into a campervan and we are both excited and nervous to take on this project. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID VAN 🚐

    Thanks for sharing. If I get one of those it would have to get to trailheads. We hike, backpack, camp, etc. That's what I was afraid of, getting places. Self rescue gear for sure.

    What’s it like being a professional vlogging couple? Are you guys ever authentic or are you always thinking of being camera ready? I’m sure you are as authentic as you can be, but I don’t think anyone can be genuinely authentic with a camera on them, but not only that you also have to be thinking about what to put on camera and then set up a shot. I suppose in exchange for authenticity and living in the moment you get community and sharing with others which is nice.

    “It’s all private property” - yet vaguely explains multiple acres that likely have no signs around it. It baffles me why people get so worked up that their 2 acre forest of a garden has other people in it. The beauty is that you guys a have the ability to just pack up within minutes and leave in your van.

    Eamon! You're wrapping the Teflon Tape the wrong direction! Google it. An even better route would be to ditch the Teflon Tape and just use Loctite 545. It has to cure for 24 hours, but you'll never have to deal with it again!! You'll thank me later
