    What's up gentlemen, et all? We met up past Davenport, CA and I got a very cool introduction to the whole "Van Life" philosophy as well as a peak at your vans. Found this site having heard Lee say "Vanning ain't no joke" more than a few times, a google search brought me here and I recognized the van! (In reference to Lee, Neal, and Andrew), they were certainly impressive and I had a good time talking with with you three. Anyhow, I was the guy stuck in his car at Greyhound Rock, having come in hot (Literally), ended up stuck there for 2 more days before I finally called in the cavalry. I was hoping to get in touch with you all to see where you're at. As for me, I'm in a hotel for 5 days waiting to get to my car via a family member, it's still there. I hope at least.

    My name is Lee and it's Eel backwards I live in a 1996 Dodge Ram B2500 with my doggy Wander the Stubborn Sniffer. You can follow me on instagram @freedom_the_van Also I moved into my van August of 2014 so I have been living in a van 4 years now! Theres enough about me.

A message from the Editor

“Vanning Ain’t No Joke.” This is all my friend Brad Parker said to me after showing him photos of this 1978 Dodge Tradesman 200 I was going to buy to live in. I had no idea what this meant at the time. I had no idea what I was doing. That little saying stuck in my head. I didn’t know why he had said that originally but I sure do now. Living in a van forces you outside your comfort zone. You are constantly learning and growing. You are always facing problems you have to overcome. You are always moving, always going...

Vanning definitely Ain’t No Joke!!!


After 4 years of living in a van, many people have told me they live in vans because of me or that I have changed their lives. That’s where this magazine comes from. I thought to myself. If I could change peoples lives just from living my own life and show it on Instagram then how can I do this on a bigger scale? Not only do I have tons of stories and information to share but I know lots of people who also do. 


I called my brother Neal Eisler and my buddy Andrew Martyn and asked them if they wanted to start a van life magazine with me. We could change peoples lives I told them. After getting them on board, we got to work to make something we could be proud of...something that could not only change peoples lives but change peoples mindsets. I am really excited to share this first issue with everyone and can’t wait to share future issues we haven’t written yet.
