Everyone loves a good fantasy or adventure story.
Now that Vans have hit mainstream, everyone is chasing that fantasy of margaritas on a beach and sunsets.
It's not all fantasies. Van Life is chock full of realities.
It's mechanical repairs, body repairs, being somewhat compliant with parking laws, insurance, hot days finding shade, cold mornings pitting pups and making coffee.
It's a good life but it's still not all the Instagram fantasy.
Those beach photos...sand in the van, salt water messing up the paint, wind flinging sand like sand blasting the van in a paint shop.
You have to be both a free spirit and one hell of a tough cookie or van life will beat you down.
Me, i still love it after all these years.
See ya down the road
