Me & My CRV

Since 2014 I’ve spent significant time living in my Honda CRV, while traveling between hiking and backpacking destinations. In 2016 I spent 55 nights sleeping in my car, and 175 days away from home. Hopefully these posts will help you shorten your learning curve, or at least help you decide if this lifestyle is worth a try.
