Who we are:
We are Jon and Ray, a couple from Seattle, WA. We are full-time van lifers, traveling the US with our dog JJ, in our converted Promaster “Road Dreamer” or “Roadie” for short. We make videos about traveling to new places, what it’s like living in a van, and tips/tricks to help fellow van lifers. We hope to inspire others to try new things, alternative ways of living, and to explore the beautiful world we live in. We post new videos every Sunday.
