Happy Anniversary Sprinter Life!

Today is our anniversary. Not of the day we met, the first time we kissed, or the the first time that we said the ‘L’ word to each other. No, today is a much bigger event. It’s the 1 year anniversary of the day we officially moved into the Sprinter Van together. We packed up the apartment in Venice, sold most of Stevie’s belongings and set out on the open road. Sprinter Life was born. We’ve learned a lot in 365 days of Sprinter Life. We learned that we don’t need a lot of stuff in order to be happy and that less is actually more. We learned to survive in a very small space together. We perfected the art of the Urban Bivy. We explored the entire west coast from San Diego to the Canadian border. Then we watched the landscapes change through the windows of our home as we meandered our way back down to Nayarit, Mexico. We learned that we are most happy when we are together and moving from place to place as a small tribe. We discovered that we are nomads. Thanks to all the people who extended their homes, kitchens, and showers to us in the last year. Mom, Indra, Cyndi & Brian, Bree & Shan, The Simkos, Cheryll, Dana, Jean, Miranda & Miguel, Jody & Kerri, 24 Hour Fitness, Starbucks, and anyone we missed, THANKS! We love you. TREE, STEVIE, KIKI

    So I hear nothing about Stevie since high school and this is how she resurfaces. Even though apparently we both went to UCLA and live(d) in Venice.

    Always knew she would rock the world. And she is.
    Glad to be on board; wish it were literal.

  5. Tree!!!! I had no idea you were doing this blog, so rad! I found it through Corrin's Africa blog. Ryan and I just spent a year living in our converted Sprinter van, with two dogs and a bunch of bikes. It was amazing! I admire you and Stevie's goal of traveling all the way to Tierra Fuego.
    I wish you luck and great adventures! The nomadic life is totally the way to go.
    Best wishes, and a big hug,
