Remote Van Life | 4x4 Camper Van Conversion

We decided to shake up boat life and recently drove our 4x4 camper van through the coastal mountains on a beautiful summer camping trip!

We decided to shake up boat life and recently drove our 4x4 camper van through the coastal mountains on a beautiful summer camping trip! We enjoyed swimming in blue water (much warmer than the pacific!) and found a boon dock-campsite up a mountain road! Our off grid camper van is equipped with everything we need and keeps us out of the bugs (plus we feel extra safe from all the animals out there making noises).

For anyone new to the channel, we live on a 30 ft sailboat full time and recently moved to an off-grid moorage the summer months! This means that we get all of our power from the solar system or by running the Diesel engine, and we have to pack in all of our water and food using our little dinghy with an outboard motor. Blue Moon is a 1978 Catalina 30 sailing vessel which we acquired in 2020. One year later we decided it was time for a road trip and built out a 1998 Delica to drive across the country. Now we live aboard the boat full-time, take weekend trips in the van, and explore this beautiful world.
