Meet Shawn and Jess! They are currently living full-time in their self-built van enjoying their love for climbing and the outdoors. Before Vanlife however, there was not a whole lot of time for outdoor fun. Jessica was managing an edgy hair salon and Shawn was a mechanic for high-end bicycles at a triathlon shop where they worked hard to make money for a high-rent place they called “home”, but barely spent any time in. They decided they wanted less things, less overhead and more time. Hence.. VANLIFE and quitting their jobs. More time equals more freedom and that freedom means they could spend time together in the outdoors. It hasn't been without hiccups though, from getting knocks after midnight to move their van to finding veterinary care on the road for their two elderly chihuahuas. In this interview, Shawn and Jessica detail out their launch into Vanlife!
