In Matt and Lola’s van

Dwyer reconnects with his high school friend Matt after decades of not seeing or speaking to each other when he sees Matt and his wife, Lola, sell everything they had, buy a van and live a completely free lifestyle.

Matt attributes the idea to a New York Post article he read that referenced a book by the name Vanabode: Travel forever for $20 a day.

The two have story after story – as they’ve been on the road since COVID. They stay in parks, on the side of a road, or if they get the chance, they use the babysitting service they work with to get their laundry done and out of the way, while earning some gas money.

Watch their segment below, as well as a tour of their van.
