About the Author
Jason Odom and his wife Kelly have road traveled over 700,000 miles photographing and exploring the greatest places in the United States. Jason created a new system of travel that would afford anyone the ability to go anywhere, stay as long as they want, and only spend $20 a day on food, lodging, and transportation. He released the first version of Vanabode in 2010 and continues to update and upgrade the website supported book, philosophy and strategies employed in this unique method of travel. In 2011 Jason was awarded an official Trademark from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the term “Vanabode”. In 2013 he published the THIRD EDITION with 60% more pictures and 22% more content.

I’ve recently read several books about full-time RVing, car camping and van dwelling, and this book, Vanabode, is tying together all of that newly acquired information very nicely, as well as providing additional new information.
After finishing How to Live in a Car, Van or RV by Robert Wells, and writing a review, I noticed several reviews that mentioned Vanabode, which I had never heard of before. I found the book and accidentally clicked the buy with one click button.
Many of the author's ideas seem to fit perfectly with where I am in my journey towards becoming an RV or van dweller, so stumbling upon Vanaboder today feels like a gift from the universe. :)
I am very glad that other reviewers recommended this book and I also recommend it to anyone who is interested in or curious about living in a van or RV.
His story really made me think about: time vs. money (If you're short on time, money can't fix that), where do we all really live (in our bodies! Duh!), and what do we really own (nothing!). This book has just the right mix of the "why" and the "how". There are photo illustrations of the van set-up in the back of the book. Another little bonus is access to a special part of his website, where he gets into even more detail on tips, such as making money while traveling, outlines of where he's been and where to go, as well as links for where to find all the equipment he uses. Naturally, if you get the Kindle edition, you can jump right to these links.
If you're ready to learn about minimalism and simplicity in life and traveling, I recommend this highly!
I have been driving since I was 16 am now 21 and haven't even driven 100,000 miles total. It's crazy to think that the author of Vanabode has driven almost a million miles in vanabode travel alone. This guy knows what he's talkin' about.
If you are serious about vanaboding, I highly recommend this book.
