    I wouldn’t paint too rosey of a picture. It’s a hard life I’m sure. My guess is she has plenty of money to fall back on when needed.

    I don’t have to wonder, I can tell you first hand, it sucks, and very dangerous, especially for a single female

    Not a true survivalist just a girl with “money” traveling around with her dog in a van., still pretty cool though, wish I could do it….

    Must be fun. There are plenty of day jobs out there that pay the same day. She could be making jewelry and selling out of her van. It’s got to be exciting to travel and see many new things on the road.
