Van of My Dreams

The first time we met Hawk and Kenz we were outside a grocery store and the two of them just walked right up to us and gave us huge hugs. From then on, it was like we were brothers-from-another-mother/sisters-from-another-mister. Hanging with these two is like being on roller coaster of giggles and tickles. I’ll stop ...

Cherohala Skyway and Beyond

It was autumn in the Southeast, warm but the breeze carried a current of cool air, crisp enough to remind me that soon I’d need to start taking allergy meds for the ragweed that was sure to begin blooming any day now. An alert came across my phone from Instagram. Direct message from OwenC. He ...

Buying a Vanagon: Part II

Falkor, our 2wd Vanagon, started out as a seven-passenger, non-camper, tin-top model that we purchased for $5k. After a few months living in the van as a tin-top we decided to put a high-top on him and it changed the game forever.

Khordz Mugs

We first came across Khordz mugs when our van friends Hawk and Kenz of @vanofmydreams started helping out with the production of the mugs and were selling them from their van. They posted about it a few times on instagram which peaked my interest, but it wasn’t until the next time we met up with Hawk ...
