Discover How You Can Spend The Rest Of Your Life
The book includes a link to lists of free places to spend the night or the month from over 50,000 locations in the United States. If you want to stay put in one location for 3 - 6 months at a time, like in a national park like Yellowstone or Glacier, I will show you how two people can live happily on even less and get paid to be there!

Picture: Glacier is only open about 3 months a year. This is why it is important to Vanabode, because you have the time to go and do, when the going and doing is good, not when your boss says you can.
You will learn how and where to apply for thousands of jobs that you can do without experience while camping all over the United States in some of the most exciting destinations you have ever imagined. I have personally worked this way since 1994 and exclusively this way since 2005.
You will learn how to get the time and money for a temporary retirement, sabbatical, or extended vacation. You will find this work invaluable if you want more time to yourself: to write a book, compose music, create a movie script, or get back on your feet after a divorce, financial disaster, or family tragedy.
You will learn how to live super cheaply off the grid even if you don't want to travel.
You will learn how to get great sleep, how to maintain proper personal hygiene with hot showers and toilet strategies, how to eat and afford delicious exotic meals, all while living a life of adventure; safely, easily, and cheaply.
You will learn how to cook hot meals anywhere without electricity, fire or fuel, made from the freshest ingredients including organic fruits, vegetables, meats, artisan breads, and cheeses purchased from thousands of farmers markets and roadside produce stands across the country.
You will learn how to get rid of all your debt and stay debt free from now on.
Image shows a wild sea turtle photographed off the coast of Florida at a secret secluded clothing optional beach. My wife and I go Adam and Eve for days here in pristine delicious privacy whenever we are in Florida. The location is revealed in the book along with special must follow parking strategies.
You will learn how to happily live a complete and fulfilled life without home ownership hassles, mortgage payments, electricity bills, water bills, tax bills, homeowners association payments, real estate taxes, sewage or trash bills, house insurance payments, pest control expenses, and more.
I will show anyone that thinks they cannot afford to travel, how to do so.
"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 poker players who want to travel in America to exciting places like Las Vegas and California, how to live the professional poker players dream while preserving and growing their bankroll.
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 in Detroit
"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. I am not talking about 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 ever view 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 loaded 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.
This Will be the Most
"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 from Toledo
"Intelligent insight coupled with a lot of one-of-a-kind information. . ." pro book reviewer
"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 Mexico
"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 a treasure that we were astonished to find
were frequented by foreigners more often than by U.S. citizens. When I
asked my friends why they never went they all said the same thing. They
were too far away and they could never get enough time off work to go.
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
"I had a lot of legitimate "excuses" why I could not travel. He covers all of them in this book. I put his solutions to work and we have been camping in Utah for 6 weeks now. The kids are fine, the bills are paid, and we are eating better than ever. Fantastic!" Anthony & Margaret Thomason - Miami
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.
Goat Rock State Park offers a rugged far out landscape to enjoy. Far from the crowds you can find peace and a lot of things to do. Can you see the beach? Can you see the rocky cliffs? Can you see the hiking trails? Whales, seals, fish, deer, birds and more abound here. You just need the time to take it all in. We spent a full week for free in this misty spellbinding place.
"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 in Maui
"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 Allistair

"Jason offers slap your face wake up calls with a sense of humility" Robert, Valley Times
"He really makes travel possible for everyone. . ." Peggy March living in Arizona
"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 and advice you provide in your book are priceless, at least for me they are." Name withheld
Right: Our rabbit bunny Bugsy traveled over 50,000 miles with us over 8 years and has seen a lot of action for such a little guy. He draws crowds like a magnet and for those purchasing Vanabode hundreds of pictures of him all over the US are available for viewing.
"I've wasted many hours, sometimes days at time, reading over rv websites trying to figure out how to pull this off with a motorhome. He, on the other hand, gets right to the point with this travel book. Problem solved and I'm on the road and debt free now"
From the finest art galleries in America to rugged national parks; from sandy seashores to desert rocky mountains; from small towns to big cities; from wild life to wild times; you can have it all on $20 a day.
Images above include fine art galleries we have visited, gorgeous beaches in California, museums, Zion National Park, and my lovely wife Kelly sliding down a snowy mountain on Mount Charleston 45 minutes outside Las Vegas. My point is simple. If you Vanabode the way I lay it out for you in the book you will have time to do whatever YOU want to do, and you will have the money to do it FOREVER!
"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 have to admit, he does show you numerous, I repeat numerous, simple practical 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 print this" Abigail and Steve from Albany

When was the last time you spent a month enjoying the beach? When you Vanabode you can choose to spend your time on the calm snow white beaches on Florida's west coast, or the small wave surfer happy capital of the United States on Florida's east coast, or the rugged shoreline of northern California with abundant wildlife watching and nighttime driftwood fires, or southern California's famous beaches where celebrities and big wave surfers share the ocean with whales, sea lions, harbor seals and other abundant wildlife.

Lee from Pennsylvania
I love spending time in the cooler seasons at Florida's beaches.

Better still I show you how to stay on the water for a month for what others pay to say a weekend.

Vanaboding allows you the time to see more wildlife. You don't have to be in a hurry all the time so the things you see will be very interesting. We shot this rare wild goat in Glacier with a $150 camera. There are resources in the Vanabode book that point you to places to sell your photography if you decide to make money at it while traveling.
