  2. I’m a loyal follower of Roll with It but I’ve been on the ” circuit ” way before them. My hopes are to someday get on the road but not before I can get something like #93 on it. This was very informative. The money part of it is really key. Thanks

  3. Saludos desde México, I’m currently making some life changing decisions, and I find myself very inspired by your story. I quit my job, start a small (for now) gear business and using Facebook a lot, not just to sell, but also to get to now groups and people who enjoy the outdoors as I do, hopefully this will make me a note social media person. Also, I’m starting to get involved in the maker movement which I hope be useful when the “transforming a van” time comes.
    I really hope I can call you a colleague some day soon, may be even stumble upon you on the trail.
    Have fun, keep on the road y gracias por tus palabras.
