“Living out of your car” can have a negative connotation, but many people wouldn’t spend their life any other way. Photographer Andrew Waits discovered this when his aunt and uncle quit their jobs to buy an RV and live the rest of their lives on the road. Even though it seems crazy, there are people all over the country who do it. You may be inspired to as well once you realize the amazing lives these people can live.
Andrew Waits’s photo series is called Boondock. The photographs help illustrate the point that a vehicle isn’t just a mode of transportation, but a means of shelter and sustainability. This sub-culture has spread throughout the US, growing after the recent housing crisis and economic troubles.
Do you think that you could live out of your car or an RV? It’s not easy, but it could be a rewarding experience. “Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.” -Hermann Hesse
