Josiah had a successful career in Silicone Valley, but was ready for more! So about 6 years ago he decided to become a nomad, and was surprised at the stigma that accompanied his choice. Still, he regrets nothing and loves what he does outside his van more than his rig itself.
His 1982 Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagon is a super cool green machine, with a number of excellent after-market upgrades. He has some dreams to redo the kitchen and make the space even more livable. What do you think?
Meet Frye — he and his dog have been living in his Volkswagen Westfalia now for four years. He gutted the van and turned the interior into a rustic cabin, complete with unfinished wood floors and a cast iron wood stove.
Frye has mainly used his home on wheels to explore the woods of the West Coast, getting closer to nature and learning to become his own handy-man. He added a cool wooden roof extension to give about 10 feet of head space in the van, which really opens up the space.
Watch the awesome video tour and interview with Frye done by FLORB at the end of the post, and follow Frye on Instagram here.
When 21-year-old Daniel Norris got a $2 million signing bonus to pitch for the Toronto Blue Jays one of the first things he decided to do was buy his dream car… Which just happens to be a 1978 Volkswagen Westfalia bus where he lives simply from. Yes. This is also his home.
The young man is from Johnson City, Tennessee and the people who know him definitely think he’s a little weird for his lifestyle choices. But at the same time, they find him interesting. According to GrindTV, Norris says, “I knew after I signed that I was going to get a Volkswagen van. It was my dream car.”
Now the van is set up with solar panels and all. And Daniel uses it to travel to practice training, to adventure, to surf, to go hiking, and more.
