This is so awesome! My boyfriend and I are doing the same exact thing in October! Were moving to Tampa Florida so I can go to school to become a marine biologist. I don’t know the area down there very well and because we both don’t have jobs down there we are going to live in my van for a while in different camp sites until we can find jobs and a decent area to live in. Right now we currently live in St. Louis MO. I’m so excited because my dream is coming true and i feel like this is the best way to do it and save money all at the same time. Thank you for this article, knowing that I’m not the only one who has done/going to try this has given me hope that this will work.
