I cant believe I am finally doing it. I am really living my dream. I have always felt a strong passion for traveling and for the next year I am doing just that. My only problem is that I love home and I love my bed so much I needed to figure out how to bring my home on the road. I have watched hundreds of videos of people living in their vans and building them and for away I just though I could never do it but then, I decided to believe in myself and just do it. I looked for awhile until I found my 1998 for Econoline van that I will now call home.
Once the idea of Vanlife popped into my mind I knew I had to figure out a way to make money on the road. All the videos I have watched have said oh just be a free lance worker all you need is experience and a degree. The problem with that was is that my only experience with freelance work is working on my website and I don't have any sort of computer science degree or graphic design degree as I am only 17 (almost 18). So I thought I should start doing what I do best and book some gigs so I can play music all over the country and get paid! Of course I love music and want to share it with people but the main focus of these gigs is to get money. My main focus for the trip is to travel and see sights I have never seen and experience things I've never gone through.
Its scary to think that I am just going across the country so far away from the ones that I love but when is a better time then now. Most kids my age are getting ready to move into their dorm rooms and go through vigorous college courses and truly I wasn't ready for that. I am so excited to enter adulthood in such an extravagant way. This post is short but I just wanted to give a quick briefing before all the craziness starts.
All of the upcoming dates are on my website for this tour, check em out and share them. If you know people who are in any of these areas please let me know!!1
