How to SHOWER, do LAUNDRY & still enjoy a NATIONAL PARK while Living in a Van ↠ shop our Vegan Cookbook www.eamonandbec.com/ ↞

We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!
In today's episode we enjoy a morning hike up Ryan Mountain in Joshua Tree National Park. We then drive about 4 hours south west to Los Angeles where we do laundry, find the closest Planet Fitness so we can finally SHOWER and enjoy a wonderful vegan meal at Mohawk Bend in Silverlake. All in all, I'd say today was the best day ever :)

    • Enjoying your travels thus far, your footage has been great. Reminds me of my US trip many years ago: LA, Big Bear, Santa Monica, Utah, Nevada, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Las Vegas, San Diego, Tijuana. As for exercise here in Australind, Western Australia it was above 30°C so my 16yr old son & I got the tunes cranking and painted our lounge room. Keep on keeping on! 🚐🚌🏜️🌳🏕️🚙

I get itchy and stinky if I dont wash my hair for two days in a row. Is it healthy? Dont you get greasy hair? What about louse problems? Thanks!" peace

In your travels in Baja did you ever have trouble finding diesel? I have a sprinter and will be heading down to Baja in a few days and am wondering if I should bring a extra gas can... I don’t really want to but wasn’t sure if it’s a issue. Thanks in advance and hope to see y’all down south!

  • Those neighborhood watch signs don't actually mean anything in California just fyi. They are there just to scare bad people away (which isn't not very effective as you might have guessed.

  • Great video... I just spent a week out there climbing, I love that place. One small critique though - did you not see the very clear signs as you enter stating no drone flights allowed in the park?

    Armen AArmen AIl y a an
  • I have an idea, your dirty washing space is that deep so your lucky but if I had that I would contact one of those places that makes sofa covers or a dress maker and ask them to make a bag with eyelets you know those round metal loops like some converse shoes have but bigger, you can buy an eyelet machine for a few backs if you need to and I would fix it to some hooks near the top of the washing bin. You could probably even take the washing to the laundry place in that bag. It’s a small thing that can make an unpleasant job a bit easier 😀 I might do it on my next build.

  • You guys should get a canvas bag, and some button/snap rivets... Take the button/snap rivets and line that laundry opening, and then do the same around the outer edge of the canvas bag... Then, button it up to the laundry opening and voila.... laundry hamper and nothing that falls down in the cracks! Just an idea. haha. Great video!

Here you go the official "How to Talk Minnesotan." frworld.info/net/vid-o/251khNeg03y0pG8. (I am actually a CA born girl.) Bob's Red Mill Oat Groats are my Dr recommended as they bind with cholesterol don't even need meds anymore.. You bought Tide Gentle...is that biodegradable I only use Tide. I almost did the oops it's a washer in a laundromat. The LA Way... I have all the plates etc ready for the busser. I used to sit down and help roll silverware at the favorite eatery joked about learning a trade.

I believe the weather is going to be AWESOME going forward😍😎🤪😂 Coming to U from LA😂😂😂. If U come into Long Beach, look up Colorado Lagoon Park. The sand in a couple areas is quite bumby because of the crazy 4 days of rain last week but it’s Beautiful little park and Uve gotta check out 2nd and 4th streets. Enjoy CA❣️❣️❣️
