Frozen water pipes and stolen climbing gear. What do these two things have in common?
The boys started out the trip with the van bed as their bunk. After 2 1/2 weeks, we moved them into our tent. I got sick of waking up, putting on my coat, and walking over to the van whenever Fisher needed a drink of water or his arm tickled.
Within 2 months, from Sept 17 to Nov 29, Jennilyn and I were able to polish off 84 routes in Idaho, Utah and California. The routes and different rock types were very educational and fun. Having a 4.5 and 2.5 year old at the base of each route also made it an adventure.
Being homeless and hopping from one base-camp to another every week or two allows for utilizing some nifty tricks to be comfortable and save money.
4 month on the road? Yea...you need to be comfortable.
I am homeless. That is what society calls it when you choose to leave your job and put all your belongings in a storage unit to live in your van for 4 months.
