Van Life for Women – Be Free as a Bird!

I wrote “Van Life for Women” for one reason. So, independent, free-thinking women and (van girls) can live cheap and discover the secret of living from a Van full-time. 

I moved from a condo to a van, alone, just my dog and me. My condo was $900 per month – my utilities were about $300 per month. All total, I was spending about $1,200 per month on shelter and utilities. Now, I SAVE $1,200 a month!

My van life started with an idea, and within only 60 days – I was living my dream. You can too because I’m going to show you how to do it. I started in Austin, Texas.

I was fed up with city life. I wanted to see the beach. So, I drove to Florida and lived the entire winter near Boca Rotan. It was beautiful. I slept near the beach and met many nice friendly people. I also spent time in Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Del Ray Beach, Pompano Beach, Ft Lauderdale, and I even traveled down to Key West! The sunsets in Keywest are worth the drive. So Gorgeous! Yes, “Van Life for Women” is for me!

In the month of May – I drove to the mountains of Colorado, then up to Montana. Talk about BIG blue skies, OMG, it is no lie. The skies are BIG and blue in Montana. The lakes and streams are so clear you can see the fish swimming near the bottom! Once, I got naked and swam with the fish—so much fun. I love Van Living for girls!

It did not take me long to adjust to Van Life. It was a hundred times easier than I thought it would be. The trick is to stay organized and only travel with your needs. I did not have any breakdowns, but it’s wise to have an emergency fund set aside for accidental mishaps.

I only got scared one time.

A mama black bear came to visit me when I was camping near a river in Montana. The mountain lion was peeking in my window! I quickly got my bear mace, but it sprinted away very quickly. I think mountain lions are more scared of us than we are of them.  Beware: They will fight and kill you if threatened.

I’ve had many wonderful experiences that removed many of my fears. I have no fear of sleeping alone or traveling alone. My dog and I have a great time. We meet lots of people, we eat well, and we stay fit. I cannot imagine NOT living the Van Life.

Inside my book, “Van Living for Women”, I provide many details of living in a van, especially for women. (private details for women only) I also provide a budget or costs you will probably endure. Van living is low budget.

When you’re living an independent life, such as “Van Life for Women,” then something happens deep down inside your soul. Suddenly, your life has meaning, and your spirit jumps for joy because you are FREE. There is nothing like the feeling of FREEDOM.


Living inside concrete or wooden walls called a condo, house, or apartment is not for me anymore. I love the freedom of living with less and the freedom to travel anywhere I want – almost anytime I want. I can spend the winters on the beach and the summers in the mountains. I love it. I can also spend time with friends I meet on the road.  I also provide a few examples of how you can earn money on the road.

We only have ONE life to live.

Right now, I choose to live my ONE life traveling and sleeping in my Van. I can cook, shower, and get a good night’s sleep in almost any situation. My dog, Sheba, will always warn me of any possible dangers (which is hardly ever). I feel good – I feel in control of my life.
