VAN LIFE VLOG | Living in a Van Rent Free // baja bound ep. 4
Start from the beginning: BACK TO MEXICO
↠ shop our Vegan Cookbook ↞
↠ shop our CHAI ↞
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!!
Today's episode begins in Quartsite, Arizona where we attend the RTR festival: a massive van life meetup that draws THOUSANDS of vandwellers each year!! We had the opportunity to connect with so many like-minded travelers and loved our time in the desert. A big thank you to all our new skoolie, van life and RV friends for welcoming us with open arms :)

  • Fellow Canadian here, just wanted to let you know Canada has a vast amount of government owned land (what would be equivalent to BLM land in the US) it's called Crown Land and you can camp there free of charge for up to 21 consecutive days. I'm sure there's some government site you could Google to find locations. Hope this helps when you get back to Canada :) safe travels!

  • The drone shots are super cool - I hate those things, but boy, can you get some good footage. Don't let the editing kill you. You had viewers before you had 4 cameras - remember that the technology is an enhancement for you guys, not your hook. I challenge you to do the crappiest tech video you can do and have the most fun -- like, from your cell phone with no editing -- and see how the comments go. Want to mention again, the cookbook is BEAUTIFUL! As a marketing consultant, I want to remind you that links to stuff to buy to support you at the end of the video is NOT a shame or a sin. Loving the new logo, and I would love to see it on coffee mugs, shirts, and frisbees for the summer, like at cafepress.
