    You literally said everything I've been trying to explain to people for awhile especially my mom. I drove cross country back in 2016. My traveling story goes on forever but right now I'm back home in NY living in an apartment and I'm ready to go back on the road. My mom doesn't understand it she tells me I'm unstable. But I tell her look how many people live a "typical lifestyle " and end up taking their own life. I don't feel like I'm not unstable I found out a lot about myself when I lived in my car in CA and yes I would do it again. I wish I had documented my journey but I was honestly embarrassed to let the world know I was living in my car. But after watching this video I'm kind of motivated to it all over again except this time record it all. Thank you for sharing.

    I totaly get this and i like the idea. Iv been thinking of doing the same thing, its actually why im watching this rn. I dont have the gift of gab so i idt i could make it on youtube. Probably just go to NM or AZ, work and live from my car til i can afford something. How or where do you take a shower though?

    When you do eventually have to get a different car, i would stay with a Toyota. Maybe a little bigger one though. But if your driving all over putting miles on your car, stay with the most reliable car brand. Toyota!

    Maybe this is b.s. and she is trying to get sympathy and $$ from viewers. Or else why would she have her car staged like that? If I lived out of my car I would make it look like I didn't live out of it.

    I just started sleeping in my car because I'm attended a university that is 48 miles away from my home. I have a morning class and with the traffic I didn't want to risk being late, and didn't want to rent a hotel because that would get expensive considering that I already pay a home mortgage. I use the school recreation center to shower in the morning and use a kitchen in the staff lounge to store food. After doing this for the Las month I regret not living in my car when I was in my early 20s. I been making over 100k the last 12 years and I could have saved half of the income I made and bought a home cash. There are so many resources out there that makes living in your car practical. And talking about goals, I'm in school because I want to be a school teacher and not work as an electrician anymore. Good look and God bless you!

    Your lifestyle seems super fun, but you need a van! That seems like it would fit your “traveling” lifestyle much better! Either way, you’re fucking rad and keep doing you! Also lived out of my truck for 45 days just for fun. Ok now your video just said you don’t want a van. Well keep it up! Many of us are jealous of your lifestyle!!

    Your , nomadic.
    So am I.
    But , having a home base is needed.
    I returned from living in south America and could not find an appointment do to they did not take out of country Pryor address, and did travel a lot.
    My friend in control ice slip long island had been wanting me to visit her.
    So I did, its was nice there .
    I ended up just buying a house after I left long island after being there for about a month .
    Patty was awesome.
    We first met on the big island in hilo.
    I bought a sailboat when I return to Alaska.
    Yeah I was gone for years and when I returned to my house , squatters had been living in it for over 5 years .
    They now are the owners .
    My truck at the time I was getting paperwork, ready to file an eviction, was stolen.
    I then had to fly back up to Alaska to replace my documents.
    Yes the same people, stolen my truck and forged the title .
    It was a nightmare.
    By time I was able to finally file , they had been given the deed by the court .
    The restraining order they got when I was in Alaska was not correct, they used my house address there , and they lived there , squatters.
    So I did not know about it and they won by default.

    Later the judge removed it from my record however , he could do nothing about my house.
    They had sold it and left state .
    Plus , my truck was a 5th wheel dually and my 5th wheel trailer, a newer 36 foot 3 slide out , also was never returned.

    Go figure.

Lol have you ever thought about going to school and driving? I used to make very good money at it. But I lost my CDL license in 2008 got a DUI but anyway god has been good to me because if it wasn't for God I would have died along time ago but he ain't done with me yet. And my goal right now is to sell the RV and move into my van full time and save up for my bee farm . I'm going to have to save up and buy equipment as I go because my credit is bad and I love my bee's God has saved my life with honey bee's.god is good all the time. Love you too and God loves you too

  • Angela Oakes

    I feel the same! I live in the San Francisco area, and my car living experience all started when I would sleep in my car because me and my partner would get in a fight. I have this spot by the ocean where I park my car and I crack the window so I can hear the ocean waves crashing. It’s so relaxing and my favorite place on earth is the ocean! And then my perception started to change. I realized I really loved sleeping in my car on by the beach and hearing the ocean every night. There’s a lot of other van dwellers who park where I do and we don’t get bothered. When I’m in my car, I look at the apartment complex across the street and think about how those people are paying $2000-$3000 if not more a month for “rent” and here I am happy in my car, hearing the waves crash and I don’t have to pay a dime except my car payment and it’s sooooo peaceful and I don’t have to waste that money on “rent”, my time and energy that I make money with at my job all day. There’s a stigma on those who car live, but I actually like it. I have places I can stay, can rent a room or apartment etc, but I really feel like it’s a waste of money! Especially in the Bay Area in California. Thank you for your videos and I’m am thinking soon I will either blog or post videos about my “car living” experience as well. I’m a free spirit and sleeping in my car has been an eye opening experience and I like it and it’s nice to watch videos of other people who like it too. : )

    Feeling sorry for you? Im jealous of you. The other day i got out of work at 11pm and was too tired to drive back home after a 16hours shift so i stopped at a rest stop on the florida turnpike and slept like a baby. It would be nice to find a job where i can travel like you and make car payments on my car and enjoy the country. Love to at least take one year off of work to try it out. Hopefully one day i can make it happen. I have a gym membership at la fitness and thats nstionwide so that can be the place where i can shower and just enjoy the country. Keep doing what your doing and live your dreams .

    Being a van dweller, it’s a “catch 22” the longer your out on the streets, the harder it is going back to the “sticks and Bricks” life. I personally love the freedom, and basically no responsibilities. Its a selfish existence, I don’t regret. To be honest, most people are tariffed and overwhelmed with the thought. More power to her, she is doing it her way !

    Katie, living in your own car is not as bad as some make it to be. I think the reason why some others make it sound so bad, is because the people that are living in their own cars, don't have to pay rent and I think other people are living in a home and paying rent, are mainly just envious, since they have to pay rent for personal home space and shelter. While the people living in their cars, don't have to pay rent and there have extra money to spend. But they still have personal space and shelter in the form of a car. The way I see it, if you can go without paying rent, sure why not. Your car is still your personal space after all. But it would concern me to live in a car, mainly due to security reasons. I mean what if someone where to brake into your car while you're sleeping in it? I know I would be really scared. Not because of my stuff getting stolen, but because like whats the robber going to do to me. Also, what about food? How do you cook your food? Or do you just eat out at fast food?
