#Vanlife, the Bohemian Social-Media Movement

This paragraph is particularly great:

On the first day, the van slid backward down an icy hill and had to be towed. They drove through winds so strong that they worried that [the van] was thrown out of alignment. Progress was slow; even in optimal conditions, the van couldn’t go faster than sixty miles per hour. King and Smith spent Valentine’s Day at a truck stop in Albuquerque, where a security guard accused them of being prostitutes. The uncertainty of life on the road was a constant low-level drain at first, particularly for King, who discovered that she was afraid of the dark.

Update: Ok this passage is perhaps even greater:

They are sponsored by several companies whose products they use every day, including TruthPaste, which makes clay-based toothpaste, and Four Sigmatic, a “superfood company” that sells instant coffee enhanced with mushroom elixirs.
