A New Chapter

Let’s GO!

Today is the start of a new chapter for 3Up Adventures. It is my last day at work and tonight will be our first day with the van as our home and not just an RV.

Last winter, we started trying to figure out ways to move our life closer to the one we wanted to live. Many ideas were tossed around including some realistic and some not so realistic (“Let’s sell the house, buy a snowcat, and live at the cabin!”).

Somewhere along the line, Forrest posed the question of whether we should think about living in a van. In 2010, we traveled around the country in a Jeep Cherokee. It was a great trip—the three of us running around and exploring. In the van, we imagined, the things we didn’t like about the trip—being rushed and not being able to sit up in bed—would be fixed. We found our Sprinter last winter and Forrest has done a whole bunch of work to get it ready for action.

After what feels like forever, we’re finally on the road!

  1. I look forward to following your adventures and living vicariously through you! We’ve been back from our own RV adventure for 5 months and I sorely miss life on the road. May you find easy water sources, quiet streets when city camping and dirt roads to lead you deep into the mountains. Enjoy!
