We're here in Jace & Giddi's 2003 Dodge Sprinter van. I'm sitting at the desk, Blaize lies at my feet and Jace & Giddi are sitting together on the bed. Even with all of us there it still feels like there's enough space. And surrounding us is everything they need: A toilet, fridge, bed, workspace and tons of gear and food storage. Together, the cost of the van and the build-out was less than $10,000.
Jace & Giddi are five months into living on the road with their dog, Lotus. But soon there will be four. They are expecting a baby girl in November who will join them in their travels.
To fund this lifestyle, they both run two small businesses. Jace is a co-owner of Axiom, a small startup producing polarized, all-natural, wood sunglasses. Giddi runs her own business, Carteo Handmade, as a handmade jeweler, creating beautifully crafted pieces from their small studio inside the van.
