Grab Your Boondocking Starter Kit!

Hi, I'm Kristin, and I live in a Chevy Astro van! One of my very favorite things to do is to find free campsites on National Forest and BLM land. Not only does this save tons of money, but keeps us away from loud and irritating neighbors. Learn how!

A little more about me: 

Hello! My name is Kristin Hanes and I'm a journalist turned blogger over at The Wayward Home, where I write all about van life, RVing, sailboats and tiny homes.  

I live on a sailboat and in a Chevy Astro van, and spend most of my time traveling.  

Before I started van life, I had no idea what boondocking was, and now its my favorite way to travel.

Free, beautiful, and far from irritating neighbors.

I hope to see you out there!
