Hello! Our names are Tina and Alex and we made this site to help connect with our family and friends during our travels, as well as, encourage and teach new van owners what life is like living simply on the road. This website will contain trip reports on where we have been, personal stories, rock climbing tidbits, our experience with building out our van, and any advice we might have.

tinaalex We first met on an online dating site (back when there was no such thing as tinder). Our first date was at a local rock climbing gym. It was here, where we quickly learned to trust each other through the sport and eventually we realized a shared passion for climbing and traveling. Within the years of dating, our relationship continued to grow through the good times and the bad.

After 4 years of being together, working through the stress of school and work. We realized that we needed to start planning a life where we could live free and simply.  We moved into our van in December 2015 and haven’t looked back since. With the help and support of friends, family, and strangers, we are able to live out our dream of traveling.

We married on August 5th, 2016. We currently are traveling and living full time in our van.
