(If the player isn't working click here)

In this episode we talk with Nessy the Westy about living in a 83 1/2 VW Vanagon with a 1 year old baby.

Nessy the Westy comprises of 3 humans and a dog. 2 grown humans with their one year old daughter.

Their names are Chris, Brittini, lil girl Eleanor and the dog Buddy.

The day this was recorded was a special day because it was lil girl Eleanor's 1st birthday ever and they were headed to Disneyland to celebrate.

We first ran into these awesome humans in Oregon at Descend on Bend and it's always good to run into people in different states.

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 asked him 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.
