I live in a cargo van I converted into a home on wheels. Anywhere I go my home is there also, either at work or when I’m off traveling across the country.
The need to live in a van came out of necessity, brought by the splitting up of my family and the consequent need for a place to live.
From day one of living in my cargo van I never had the feeling of being homeless or destitute. The first night I slept in the van there wasn’t much in it, just a few small boxes and bags with work stuff, a sleeping bag and an air mattress. I woke up the next morning and found myself sleeping on a deflated air mattress. However, my first thoughts on waking up were not negative because my back was a little sore, but resolute that this is my home now and nothing is going to get me out of it; neither freezing winters nor hot humid summers.
