Would you like to camp, travel and live
I will show you where to get lists of free places to spend the night from over 50,000 locations in the United States.

Glacier is only open about 3 months out of the year. This is why it is important to Vanabode, because you have the time to go and do when the going and doing is good.
I will show you how and where to apply for thousands of jobs that you can do without experience while camping all over the United States in some of the most exciting destinations you have ever imagined. I have worked this way since 1994 and exclusively this way since 2005.
I take the mystery out of retiring early

I will show you how to cook hot meals anywhere without electricity, fire or fuel, made from the freshest ingredients including organic fruits, vegetables, meats, artisan breads, and cheeses purchased from thousands of farmers markets and roadside produce stands across the country.
I will show you how to get rid of all your debt and stay debt free forever.

I will show survivalists or those being stalked how to disappear, leave their past behind, and become invisible to creditors, government agencies, credit bureaus, and anyone else they wish to limit contact with.
I will show anyone that wants to run a mobile business like a website, hot dog cart, or consulting company for example, how to do so with very little overhead while traveling to different states and cities every year.
To Vanabodeis to live: NOW. Come with me and you will discover why this revolutionary lifestyle is so unique and sustainable. I am not talking about a tiny little one-week-a-year trip to a distant place surrounded by tourists where you hope the weather is good and pray you don’t get sick and for a few hours you can almost forget your tired stress filled life back home. Then you board the plane or ship and head back to your old life; tired, sad and wanting so much more. NO! I am talking about a method of traveling and living that is so much bigger, so much more sustainable, so much more fun and enriching, that once you start you will never…ever…view life the same way again.
Unplug your television, shut out the world, curl up in a warm bed behind a closed door with this ebook loaded on your laptop and travel to a new destination: forever. Or you can print out a copy and take it with you anywhere and learn at your leisure.

“Intelligent insight coupled with a lot of one-of-a-kind information. . .” professional book reviewer
If you are like me and like to do things yourself, your way; then this is the how to get started”
Bob Thomason in Montana
“I don’t care what kind of vehicle you use to see America, get this book. He contrasts all kinds of living and traveling strategies from being homeless to being rich, from tractor trailers to backpacking, from houseboats to van camping. You will get the compete picture and when you’re done you may be as convinced as I am (and as he is) that this Vanaboding is by far the greatest way to do it all”
Sam Stout in Baja Mexico
“If you want to go anywhere for more than 2 weeks at a time, then you should certainly buy this book”
Peter Arkins, Washington
National parks represent a treasure that we were astonished to find were frequented by foreigners more often than by U.S. citizens. When I asked my friends why they never went they all said the same thing. They were too far away and they could never get enough time off work to go. Vanabode solves these problems head first. The book demonstrates how to make both the time and the money to visit these extraordinary national gems for months at a time.

Edward Hasbrouck is considered by most to be the top authority on world travel having worked his way slowly through some 35+ countries in 35+ years. He is the author of the worlds most complete work on travel around the world titled “the Practical Nomad”. He has this to say (quote) “No other country is more geographically diverse than the United States.” (unquote) So what is stopping you? With this masterful book and proposed new way of life that the author calls Vanabode you can actually experience the greatest sights in the world from the safest country, cheaply and easily by van. No planes, trains, or buses needed.” Charles Saunders from the Literary Travel Network

The kids are fine, the bills are paid, and we are eating better than ever. Fantastic!” Anthony and Margaret Thomason from Miami
“Wikipedia describes Vanabode as a “disruptive technology” or “disruptive innovation”; terms used in business and technology circles to describe innovations that improve a product or service in ways that the market does not expect, typically by being lower priced or making something available to everyone that was previously only available to the rich”. . . from an award winning travel innovations essay 2009
Goat Rock State Park offers a rugged far out landscape to enjoy. Far from the crowds here you can find peace and a lot of things to do. Can you see the beach? Can you see the rocky cliffs? Can you see the hiking trails? The whales, seals, fish, deer, birds and more abound here. You just need the time to take it all in. We were here for a week and this place is spellbinding.
“I know it sounds corny but I think you may have saved my marriage with this book. When I bought Vanabode I was very depressed and I thought my wife was leaving me for sure. When I showed her the plans you outline she changed her mind and broke down in tears and said “Lets go together, please, please, don’t you see I just want to spend time with you. I am sick of all the stress that is tearing us apart. I wanted to leave this life that has become such a grind, not leave YOU!”, anonymous from Toledo

Thank you so much for clarifying this and helping me on my way to finally living a fun life. The resources and advice you provide in your book are priceless, at least for me they are.” Name withheld

Variety Makes the Vanabode Lifestyle Unbeatable
From the finest art galleries in America to rugged national parks; from sandy seashores to desert rocky mountains; from small towns to big cities; from wild life to wild times; you can have it all on $20 a day.
Images above include fine art galleries we have visited, gorgeous beaches in California, museums, a pit bull that got hurt by a porcupine, Zion National Park, and my lovely wife Kelly sliding down a snowy mountain on Mount Charleston 45 minutes outside Las Vegas. My point is simple. If you Vanabode the way I lay it out for you in the book you will have time to do whatever YOU want to do, and you will have the money to do it FOREVER!
