Last week we drove our new tiny home on wheels north to begin putting our off-grid capabilities to the test. So, naturally 😂, we decided that for our second trip in the van we ought to put the capacity limits to the test too. While our 170 sprinter van has seemed like plenty of room (almost too much room!) for the two of us, this week will prove just how comfy the new layout is when we add a 3rd human and a medium-sized dog!!! We all travel towards Tobermory and Manitoulin Island (living, traveling, sleeping, cooking & POOPING 💩 in 1 van). Could you live in such tight quarters with two other people and a dog?!
Did you love this video? Lee also joined us in Morocco:

After a long 4 months of this VAN LIFE BUILD project we finally have enough electricity, water and other essentials in place to put our new tiny home on wheels to the off-grid test. We head 4 hours north of Toronto to explore some of Canada's most stunning wilderness with one of our very best friend's Lee and her dog Occy! The adventure begins with a hike along the Bruce Peninsula at Lion's Head where we get lost and nearly don't make it back to camp! Luckily the @Vanwives were there to save the day 😊 . The crew then heads towards Manitoulin Island where we learn the hard lesson that things aren't as free and open as they were before COVID. Readjusting to tiny living isn't so bad when you're in such great company! All this and more in this week's van life vlog!

  • I’m bawling 😭 I’m so sorry life was so cruel to you Lee. I feel your headspace. I’m 52. It’s been a struggle since I was 12. Life is tough enough without mean people. Please don’t be mean. Stop bullying. It’s only a bad habit of attitude. Change your thought process, change your attitude, and see what a true asshole you are by bullying. 🙏🏻

  • I just listened to Lee's guest appearance on the REROOT podcast and I just can't comprehend how she was so happy and positive on 3/1 and no longer with us on 3/26... What happened to make such a drastic change in her life? She was such a beautiful person inside and out and so self aware. My heart is breaking and I just can't get her off my mind, it seems so surreal 💔 😢 💔 Rest in peace Lee 🙏🏻🕊💓💒 I'm so happy we have your videos and words of wisdom to look back on ❤🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🤍

  • To be young and alive. I had my moments when I thought life was hell and would never stop being misery and I accidentally lived through it. If she'd just effed up and lived. Imagine the life she would have had with such spirit and friends to lift her up. Her lesson to us all. Fight like hell because one day you'll have moments like this, then more moments, and a few more, and you'll eventually forget how sad your life seemed.

  • You never know another's pain...So Sorry Lee. Find Peace and watch over all who loved you. Bec, Eamon I am so sorry for the loss of your Dear Friend. I hadn't realized when I read and saw tributes from Trent & Alie - Kaylie & Jordan that the cool girl from this Video was Lee...thought I had never "met" her, But I remember this Video. I think it was when I came upon your Channel. I thought what a C O O L couple and they have such neat friends. I am so sorry. Please take care of yourselves and take time to just "Be" with those you love. Much Love, Babies ❤🕯🤲

  • Feel so down. I am wondering if this happy, joyful person with friends close to her committed a suicide why should I live? A year ago I’ve lost almost everything and I stucked in place where I hate being and nothing good is happening here... maybe I should follow Lee’s example... confused.
