The continuous and everlasting voyage of living in a van, either traveling, down by a river, or partying at every bonfire you can find. Off-roading is key and animals living in the van only adds to the overall van life.
Goals include having a convoy of vanlifers.
I didn't choose the van life, the van life chose me.

Get the van life mug.
A bad reference to thug life used by predominantly well off, good looking people who very temporarily live in a van and post lots of selfies hoping to become social influencers. This is nothing like the actual homelessness or poverty that leads people to live in vehicles, it is a privilege similar to the tiny house movement. It relies heavily on photo ops in iconic places that people only learn about on Instagram, not as actual nature enthusiasts. Most #vanlife photos are taken of skinny white blonde women in underpants “having fun” or “ just living a modest life”.
