We are a very active couple in our mid-30’s, living on the Canadian West Coast. We aim to live a simple and mindful lifestyle, which we hope is reflected in this blog, whether it be through our climbing, cycling, travelling or cooking! We try to live our life to the fullest, while we are able to do so, and aim to make every day count. We hope to inspire others to do the same, whatever their passion may be.
In February 2015, we decided to “Test Drive” our version of #vanlife in a rented Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van RV for three months.
In July 2015, we decided we loved that lifestyle so much that we placed an order for an empty Sprinter Van shell, with the intention of up-fitting it into a home-away-from-home van that was more functional than the one we rented.
In April 2016, our empty Sprinter Van, lovingly referred to as Moby, finally arrived! Now begins the epic journey of juggling climbing, eating, cycling, van renovating (which is basically like building a small house from scratch), oh, and our day jobs 🙂
It’s almost 2018, and we’re still building this van (although it’s almost done). We post weekly updates on the progress, in our Saturday Snippets posts, and the day-to-day adventures are posted on our Instagram account, Moby, The Big Grey Van.
One day, we’ll be living this lifestyle more permanently. For now, we’re soaking up the adventure.

We hope you enjoy our blog!
