Better than YouTube

It was a great opportunity to get more information from people already living van life. YouTube has been great for videos, but getting that live information from everyone was really great. I wanted more structure to my research than what I was getting by just watching YouTube videos.

Learned about so many things

I expected a lot of personal self/business selling and it wasn't like that at all. Instead, the information presented was valuable, generous and respectful. I was hoping to learn more about upcoming decisions and truthfully I received way more very useful info than I ever expected. Thank you SO MUCH. Everything I listened to is really helping me think through my future plans.

The summit exceeded my expectations in many ways.

Firstly, the speakers and panel discussions were incredibly informative and inspiring. I gained a lot of valuable insights on everything from choosing the right vehicle and equipment to managing finances on the road. The sessions were also very engaging and provided practical tips and solutions for everyday challenges

We’ve learned a lot from them the last two summits and decided to join their service. We had several takeaways from the safety session, much more than I expected at 60 years of age, I figured we were well versed in safety and that it’d be targeted at young solo women like the speaker but she had good information.

John Woolham

How relaxed everyone was, no question too silly, everyone very welcoming and giving.

There was so much more information than I thought. I really enjoyed all the speakers. I actually watched all of the videos.
