Emma and Carly – the ‘Van Gals’ – are two of our newest contributors, but they’ve quickly gained quite a fan club among our readers. If you read their stories without laughing, we really can’t help you. We’re pretty sure you’ll be delighted to know that we’ve persuaded them to bring us a series of videos from their latest road trip. First up is a tour of Travis, their van.
Of course, you may well already be well acquainted with Travis having read about him in Issue 131 of Singletrack, where Carly told us all about the expertly devised and executed plan to take up #VanLife. Subscribers can hop on over there now and read all about it.
In true Singletrack Forum fashion, the article spawned a thread discussing the pros and cons of their choices – with plenty of ‘you didn’t want to do it like that now, did you’.
This video bodes very well for all that’s to come from the Van Gals, so make sure you like and subscribe on our YouTube channel to hear when more tales from their latest road trip are posted. This episode offers a good mix of practical tips and their usual ‘learn from our mistakes’ wisdom, plus a taste of the riding they’re able to access from their #VanLife. Whether you’re considering a life on the road or just want to feel a little bit more grateful for the roof over your head, it’s worth a watch.
If you’re in need of a further Emma and Carly fix, while they were still in lockdown and living in an actual house, we also had a chat with them for our podcast:
