From 60-hour Workweeks to 48-state Van Life 

Gypsy was working 60 hours a week, talking about her dreams of escaping it all, when a coworker told her to just “shut up and do it.” She was shocked, but inspired, and within three weeks had purchased a bus she converted into her first tiny home.

That said, the bus was cumbersome and she wanted an easier way to get places — so she bought a van instead and spent 3 months building it out. While she did have a shower at one point, she got rid of it because going to the gym to shower is easier and she appreciates the storage space. Check it out below!
