How Did We Get Here?
Abandoning our Van in Africa
After an incredible 3 years of living, working, and traveling in our self converted Sprinter Van we made the very tough decision to abandon it in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. As it has for all of us this global pandemic has flipped our world upside down. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. Halting our dream of driving around the world was a hard pill to swallow which is why we knew we needed a big project to keep our mind + body busy while social distancing back here in Toronto. Enter building an off-grid tiny house on wheels!! This is going to be our 3rd time converting an empty cargo van into a campervan and we are both excited and nervous to take on this project. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID VAN 🚐

  • Heyyyy all, so I'm not trying to defend the implant joke because it was definitely disrespectful and in horrible taste. But raise your hand if you haven't slipped up and said something you didn't mean during this pandemic. No one?? Okay, cool. No one is thinking straight right now and we're all under a massive amount of stress. Eamon, I think we can all see that you recognized your mistake in that comment. Hopefully you go on to know better next time.

  • Perhaps a short explanation is needed in your next video. At least from both of your perspectives about the 'joke' considering the platform you have and the women of many ages that tune in. I am not about good vs bad but to simply address it would be a valuable discussion to have considering the massive pressure put on women. My 2cents.

I know you don't need another breast implant comment, however as a breast cancer survivor post a douple mastectomy who regrets having reconstruction with breast implants..... 1. Every surgery has risks & changes of sensation along with difficulty getting a symmetrical look & feel. 2. Anyone would have to be nuts to have these alien, cold & heavy sacks put in....

  • I understand you do not keep all the angry swearword situations etc but I think it is good that you keep a little bit of the "conflicts" and bad moods due to heat etc to give a little hint on that it is not just flowers and sunshine to convert a van together.

  • Sooooo.... just found your channel and it seemed really interesting and unique at first BUT the more I waded through your videos especially Eamon's cooking videos the more I realized that this guy is.... well.... quite the pig!? The endless sexual references were kinda gross, especially since this guy tries to come off as some evolved male....Haaaaaa not even close! So thanks for the look but I think I will move on, and o hey Bec, less adoration and ass kissing and maybe a little more holding your boy to higher standard and some real respect for women..

  • Wow, for a man who “educated” himself on the issues surrounding BlackLivesMatter, you completely missed the point of discrimination. Whether it is racism, ageism, sexism or any other “ism”, words and actions can have a devastating impact. There was another social awakening in the last few years called, the MeToo movement that you might want to educate yourself about so that you don’t continue to undermine the credibility of your future life partner and business partner. You gave a really nice speech on racism, but you might want to review that speech and substitute MeToo for BlackLivesMatter and sexism for racism and maybe you will realize how inappropriate your comment was to include in your video. Oh and the excuse that it was a joke doesn’t fly. You publicly embarrassed and demeaned Bec and the comment should have hit the cutting room floor. Discrimination will only be eliminated by people taking action so as not to condone the behavior. For me that is a thumbs down and unsubscribe. I hope that an apology to Bec and your followers is in your future and that you truly understand how sex discrimination affects women every day.

If Bec was insecure about her body or looks he probably wouldn't made that joke. You only make jokes like that if you know it is so far from the truth. So it's fine. Bet you, when the camera is off he tells her nonstop how perfect she is x).

It hurt ME to hear it, YOU should apologise as publicly as you delivered it. Love you Bec, don't know how you stay pleasant in the face of degrading personal comments.😘 It destroyed my enjoyment of the whole video, which by the way I have been following. I know my unsubscribing won't make much of a dent as you'll pick up a new bunch of misogynistic males to replace me (maybe you'll be super lucky and get your most famous leader to follow you 🤣)
