For the past four years, I have spent 6 months out of the year living in my beloved Cr-V. She was a beast, broke through the snow, traveled all over Alaska. She was my festival chariot and home. So many amazing memorys happened with her. 2 years ago I was looking into vans because she was just too small. When I went out of town for a festival I had to remove all my gear to be able to sleep in her. It was challenging to plan, when festivals have set up times and are 500 miles away. When researching vans I stumbled across @into_the_mystery_13 van life channel. I completly resonated with the lifestyle and it became my dream. I was going to go with an astro but desided to take the plunge and get a full size. With all of my gear I needed storage space. So I wrote in my journal every night "I am the proud owner of a 2004 Chevy Express passenger Van, 3500, owned by a small buisness." It took two years of looking but here she is! Shelby is exactly that. Never doubt the power of intention! I am so happy and greatful for discovering this lifestyle. Its the best decision Ive ever made.
