It’s been a year since I first started “living” in my car. I traveled the country and slept in my 2016 Honda CRV alongside of my little Morkie puppy. It started off as a very ghetto set up and has morphed into a slightly less ghetto set up. If I were to make this a more permanent thing, I would change things and add things, but for my casual traveling of the country it works like a charm. I was going to go through every inch of the car but it got very hot out quick and the mosquitoes started to feast on me so this is it for now. Enjoy!
I have always felt comfortable in my cars. They have always felt like a safe space that was all mine. The first time I slept in my car was a few years ago when there was a fire going thru my town and I needed to escape the smoke. My sister and I loaded a ton of blankets into the back on my 2004 Honda CRV and headed out of town. We ended up on a forest road and tried to make ourselves comfortable. All I had for protection was a pair of scissors and a bottle of perfume I could use in place of pepper spray. I’ve come a long way since then with my car living experiences, but I do still have scissors for protection and still love a forest service road to set up for the night.
I’ve been getting asked by a lot of people what I’m up to. If you follow along with my Instagram stories, you get a glimpse into my everyday activities, but I thought I’d write some of it down and elaborate.
