Jess & Mike

Joined: December 2017

Jess and Mike are a newly married couple who made it a goal to simplify our life and fill it with adventure, embarking on a nomadic lifestyle in a self-converted camper van before our first wedding anniversary. In April 2017, they hit the road and haven’t looked back. As of December 2017, they have traveled through 41 states and parts of Canada, reaching all four corners of the U.S. A big part of van life for us is about being present in the moment and trying not to plan out every next step, but they hope to complete 49 states by next summer after our trip to Alaska. Their philosophy is that life is too short to be unhappy. Since minimizing our possessions, they have a true appreciation for quality brands and products that fit our lifestyle.
