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

Our hope is to live in a truck camper, and many sessions were specifically about vanlife (which I expected), I was pleasantly surprised that many of the topics were also relevant enough for me and where I am at.
We loved all the content even the content we have yet to watch.

Helped us realize how much we need which is going to save us time, money. That extra money we saved helped us with the trip.
It was definitely a great first experience. It was very organized and easy to navigate.
It was such a positive experience for me, thank you!
Enjoyed being able to pick the topics I wanted to view for us. Also liked the No Sales Pitch and just offering ideas for builds.

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

The broad range of subject matter and the extra material that was made available.
The summit was awesome , I’ve been to conventions in person but never online ! Totally enjoyed everything! Thank you for all the time and effort and hard work ! Much appreciated".
There was so much more information than I thought. I really enjoyed all the speakers. I actually watched all of the videos. I realized that I can probably figure out a way to live in my car until I can afford a van. The Prius couple was super cute and very informative. All the specific topics on Solar and electrical was very helpful. Giving everyone the options and information to suit there needs was priceless.
Very well organized and very informative speakers that covered the whole spectrum of van life.
I learned sooooo much. It was diverse, interesting, insightful and very helpful.
