Review: Vanabode Offers Options For Travel and For Life #vanabode

Do you dream of travel? Or maybe just living a simpler life that allows you time for activities you love? Vanabode is an e-book and lifestyle resource offering information about one option to travel and live for about $20 a day.

Disclosure: I received compensation including a review copy of Vanabode by Jason Odom to facilitate this post. All opinions expressed are my own. This post also links to my Amazon affiliate link as one option to purchase Vanabode by Jason Odom.

Originally I expected Vanabode to be a travel guide, but it is more than that. Vanabode is really an option for a lifestyle. It isn't a lifestyle that will interest everyone, but if it interests you... You likely know who you are. I think the following quote from author Jason Odom may help you see if Vanabode appeals to you...

This description by the author best summarizes the Vanabode lifestyle:
"Author Jason Odom and his wife Kelly have traveled over 700,000 miles in 15 years enjoying the sumptuous beauty of pristine national parks and the exciting nightlife of big cities like San Francisco and Las Vegas. Vanabode shows you how to earn a living working in some of the most exciting places in the United States like national parks and state recreational areas, how to sleep safely and comfortably in your own bed every night; how to eat better than you ever have, how to cook for free without electricity, fire or fuel; how to get rid of all our current debt and regain your freedom; and most importantly - how you can do it forever if you want. Do you want to travel for 3 months? How about 3 years? Vanabode shows you how down to the tiniest detail and you do NOT need to make any expensive purchases to make it happen."

Vanabode offers options and possibilities to cover all sorts of practical aspects of using a van for an extended road trip or as a way of life. It touches on how to eat well, ways to make money, links to resources and more. While I don't see myself living or traveling in a van at this point in my life journey, I found it eye-opening to read about the possibility and strategies to handle the practical aspects.
