So far, as expected, it is not what it is supposed to be. It is not fun. After a solid week of living in my van I am still on a learning curve. Tomorrow I will go back to my storage to get rid of more dead weight and make changes with what I carry and how I pack it.
Since the last week of February, I have been in and out of van life. At this point, I still do not know if my body will let me do this. That is why I am using my van life break-in period to explore other avenues including getting an apartment or buying an RV. I will have to make some decisions soon.
My biggest hang-up so far is my physical health. I have suffered immensely from the physical work that I have had to do over the past two months. I will say that the soreness is subsiding and my shoulder seems to be healing. So, I do hope that I will soon start clicking the camera shutter, editing, posting, and playing music again soon.
