Discover How You Can Travel America Forever on $20 a
What would you do if I PROMISED to show you how to live a complete
life with all your needs met for $20 a day? Would you hike a
national park like Yellowstone or Glacier and photograph wildlife for
a month? Would you relax a month away on Florida's warm pristine white
powder sand beaches sipping cold Mojito's? Would you hit the tables in
Vegas for some exciting gaming and outrageous pool parties, followed by
a mind blowing world class show? Would you dine out every night for a
week on the pier in San Francisco? Would you go hunting, fishing, camping,
hiking, biking, boating, surfing, skiing, or otherwise get off the grid
and out of the grind for months?
My wife and I are experts at this. Now you can get 740,000+ miles of
road travel experience over 21+ years in my new book Vanabode - how
to happily camp, travel and live forever on $20 a day.

do it forever, and do it cheaply. You can too.
When you Vanabode you can stay for
weeks at a time in astonishing places. I show folks how we afford both
the time and the money to camp and explore for months at
a time. This makes a huge difference in your romantic life too. Image

Europeans Get 10-12 Weeks a Year for Vacation
How Much do You Get?
My friends and family have asked us for over 20 years now "How do
you guys get to travel so much when you are so young? (we are in our late
40's now) How do you pay for it when you don't have jobs or savings? Can
you help us do it too?" Sure! Honestly, I would have done it sooner
but it was hard for me to get motivated to write a 120+ page book and
stuff it full of pictures, when we were out surfing Malibu Beach one week
and biking San Francisco or catching a spectacular show in Vegas the next.

a month from over 50,000 locations in the United States. If you want to

Picture: Glacier is only really open 3 months a year. This is why

boss says you can.

"Vanabode takes the biggest expenses incurred in a long vacation
(airfare, lodging and ground transportation costs) and throws them out
the window. Unbelievable but true
well done. If I could hug the author
I would." Lucille currently hitting northern California
I show displaced workers, and those struggling financially, how to cut
costs and survive with their integrity and dignity intact. I show those
who don't want a house to keep up with, like young surfers or college
students, how to live a fun life without a mortgage payment or the responsibility
of a house. I show RV owners how to happily downsize from their massive
motor homes and fifth wheels, all the while saving money and expanding
the places they can travel to. I show retirees the best way to keep their
house if they want to, but still travel cheaply and easily. I show short
term casual campers and normal families with young school age children,
how to travel and camp cheap and hassle free.
"How many books have you ever bought that showed you how to get
out of debt, travel AND find a job while doing it? This is crazy, but
I'm on board now baby and loving it" Eileen Mathews
"This guy shows you how to cook without electricity, fire, fuel
or smoke: how to sleep for free in your own clean bed mortgage free every
night of the year: and eat out every night if you want on $25 a day. You
just can't top it" Tammy R. out of Branson Missouri
"The only book that you need to travel the entire United States.
Period." Matt in Raleigh
There is no substitute for Las Vegas! Do you have any idea how much
fun you can have here? Vanabode shows
you how to get FREE access to the top night clubs and swimming pools here,
plus how to get free food, showers and show tickets. Poker players too
can live here for $20 a day and make tons of money plying their trade.
Survivalists or those being stalked can learn how to disappear, leave
their past behind, and become invisible to creditors, government agencies,
credit bureaus, and anyone else they wish to avoid. I show anyone that
wants to run a mobile business like a website, hot dog cart, or consulting
company for example, how to do so with very little overhead, freeing up
their time and money. I show those with a chronic fatal disease how to
enjoy life to the fullest before dying.
To Vanabode is to live: NOW. Come with me and you will discover
why this revolutionary lifestyle is so unique and sustainable. This is
not a tiny little one-week-a-year trip to a distant place surrounded by
tourists where you hope the weather is good and pray you don't get sick
and for a few hours you can almost forget your tired stress filled life
back home. Then you board the plane or ship and head back to your old
life; tired, sad and wanting so much more. NO! I am talking about a method
of traveling and living that is so much bigger, so much more sustainable,
so much more fun and enriching, that once you start you will never
your life the same way again.
Unplug your television, shut out the world, curl up in a warm bed behind
a closed door with this ebook on your laptop and travel to new destinations:
forever. Or you can print out a copy and take it with you anywhere
and read at your leisure.
"I know it sounds corny but I think you may have saved my marriage
with this book. When I bought Vanabode I was very depressed and I thought
my wife was leaving me for sure. When I showed her the plans you outline
she changed her mind and broke down in tears and said "Lets go together,
please, please, don't you see I just want to spend time with you. I am
sick of all the stress that is tearing us apart. I wanted to leave THIS
LIFE that has become such a grind, not leave YOU!", anonymous
"Intelligent insight coupled with a lot of one-of-a-kind information.
. ." book reviewer
"I've always had this fantasy of quitting work and backpacking around.
But my legs won't take it and it's not safe. This Vanabode idea is perfect.
I am seeing all of the East Coast already. My average daily spend is only
$26 a day. I highly recommend you get a copy of this book if you want
to go cheap" Heath from Texas
"I don't care what kind of vehicle you use to see America, get this
book. He contrasts all kinds of living and traveling strategies from being
homeless to being rich, from tractor trailers to backpacking, from houseboats
to van camping. You will get the compete picture and when you're done
you may be as convinced as I am (and as he is) that this Vanaboding is
by far the greatest way to do it all" Sam Stout in Baja
"If you want to go anywhere for more than 2 weeks at a time, then
you should certainly buy this book" Peter Arkins, Washington
National parks represent an American treasure frequented more often
by foreigners than by U.S. citizens. When I asked my friends why they
never went they all said the same thing. We can't we have to work.
Vanabode solves these problems first. The book demonstrates how to
make both the time and the money to visit these extraordinary national
gems for months at a time.

"Edward Hasbrouck is considered by most to be the top authority
on world travel having worked his way slowly through some 35+ countries
in 35+ years. He is the author of the worlds most complete work on travel
around the world titled "the Practical Nomad". He has this to
say (quote) "No other country is more geographically diverse than
the United States." (unquote) So what is stopping you? With this
masterful book and proposed new way of life that the author calls Vanabode
you can actually experience the greatest sights in the world from the
safest country, cheaply and easily by van. No planes, trains, or buses
needed." Charles Saunders
Wikipedia's definition of a "disruptive technology" or "disruptive
innovation" describes Vanabode precisely; innovations that improve
a product or service in ways that the market does not expect, typically
by being lower priced or making something for everyone that was previously
only available to the rich.
"I don't care if you think it will be a year or even 5 years before
you can leave on your trip of a lifetime. Get this book NOW so you can
plan correctly! I did. It's only been 4 months and I have already tested
my van and equipment with three 4 day remote camping trips. It is a lot
of fun!". . . Tamara in Maine
"Vanabode helped me realize that it is not money I am short of,
but time. This book showed me exactly how to fix that" Randy
"WOW! I am actually putting more money away while having the time
of my life cruising the country than did while at my boring job back in
Nebraska. Thanks for showing me how to do it" Steve

where you showed people how and where to find work while they are traveling
was worth the price of the book just by itself" Todd in Oregon

"When I read your line 'Vanaboding is about spending time living
a fun life rather than spending money trying to buy a fun life' I was
stunned. This is exactly what I have been doing for 20 years, trying to
earn enough money to buy our family a fun life. Thank you so much for
clarifying this and helping me on my way to finally living a fun life.
The resources you provide in your book are priceless." Name

"I was very skeptical. For example, how do you take a bath while
traveling and living out of a van? (he calls his hybrid version Vanaboding)
How do you cook? How do you use the bathroom? I bought the book and I

ways to do all of these and more. He tackles the hard stuff head on. I
am very satisfied with my purchase of this book. Permission granted to

rich, are so true. He has helped me change my entire mindset and see that
real life is not made up of what you buy but what you do. I have never
