Cheap RV 13 years of vandwelling – a voyage of self-discovery

From the blogger at Cheap RV Living.

I’m usually not very sentimental about dates but this year is different! March of 2015 is a month of meaningful anniversaries to me that I actually celebrate. At this time I’m looking back on three different events in my life that truly changed both the course of my life and even who I am as a person. Those three events are:

For thirteen of the last twenty years I’ve been living in various vehicles and it has changed my life in ways I could never have imagined. It’s no exaggeration to say that I am a totally different person than that guy who cried himself to sleep his first night in a van. It’s like I got into a Star Trek Transporter as a bitter, miserable, dried-up man and came out as a young, happy person who was at peace with himself and his world.

Being forced into a van set me on a voyage of self-discovery, and as I traveled it I became progressively free from preconceptions about who I was, what I was supposed to be and expected to do. The dogmas, beliefs and false sense of duty that had been pounded into me since infancy slowly dropped away until my eyes were finally open and I knew for certain that nearly everything society had told me was wrong and I would not follow it any more.
