Sophie Climbed Everest & Now Travels Solo in Her Van

Sophie is just about as cool as they get. Not only did she climb Mt. Everest in 2019, she now travels solo while working full-time in her awesome van named Sage.

She happened upon the van on Craigslist and after getting decent vibes from the seller, wired $1k to have him hold it for her (not necessarily recommended by us but, hey, it worked out!). The interior has all kinds of special knickknacks she has found on her travels, including an awesome collection of feathers.

You can see her full tour where she talks about the safety/risks of being a woman on the road below, and follow her on Instagram here.

    Can’t imagine how free she must feel but that’s not for everybody. I wonder about insulation, heat/ac and at least a composting toilet – how much solar and is it enough for her needs if the refrigerator uses so much energy.

      If you check out her Instagram page, she posted a video on what she does for a toilet and how she feels about the other options…

      Mind, compared to her previous military and mountain climbing experiences, the basic nomadic van life is decadent luxury in comparison. So she’s doing quite well, she really doesn’t need much, and adapts as needed…
