Navigating Responsible Travel During COVID-19

Can we hit the road responsibly during a pandemic? As someone planning to car camp or take a drive into the wilderness, you might not feel like you alone could make a huge impact on this pandemic-- but the reality is that travel can lead to viral transmission. We know you want to travel (we do too!), but more importantly: we want you to be knowledgeable and prepared, whether you’re planning to get out there soon, or hoping to sometime later in 2020. In this episode, we’re aiming to help in that process by providing you with questions, tips, and tools to make your own, best decisions at the time.

Navigating Responsible Travel During COVID-19

Change of Plans: Skyler Thomas

Skyler Thomas is good at working with a change of plans. In fact, it’s something that she’s navigated time and time again-- right up to present day as she pivoted the direction of her business, SugarSky, amid pandemic-related public health concerns. But whether it’s founding her company, embracing tiny house living to become debt-free, changing careers, or making tough calls in business and in life, Skyler has a way of focusing on what’s possible-- which is the kind of attitude we’re all looking for a little more right now.

My Mom’s 3,000 Mile Drive: Jackie Hughes

This episode honors the mom figures in our lives who inspire or encourage our dreams of road travel by paying tribute to one mom in particular: our host Laura Borichevsky’s mom, Jackie Hughes. Before #vanlife… before Instagram… before she could even drive: Laura’s belief in her ability to do road travel was shaped by her mom’s experience driving across the country when she was in her early twenties, and it stuck with her because Jackie’s journey was full of purpose, bravery, and quite a bit of fun packed into a handful of days and a tiny 1975 Camaro.

A (Road) Trip Down Memory Lane

In this episode, we asked you to share your favorite road travel stories. The landscapes, destinations, trials, and motivations, like this community, are wide-ranging-- from reminders of your own strength and resilience, to particularly sweet memories with loved ones, to formative times you’re holding onto now more than ever. In listening to these stories, we hope you feel a little closer to the road. Because it’s still out there, waiting for us. And these memories are a reminder of what might be around the corner when we’re able to get back out there again.

Foraging, Family, & Fixing Your Vehicle: Amanda Shale

Self-sufficiency is always an important set of skills to hone-- in life, and especially on the road. But even the most independently-minded travelers require community and resources to learn and grow. That’s why Amanda Shale joins this episode to talk about how over the years she’s learned the essentials, including everything from responsible foraging, sheltering in place, and the importance of basic vehicle maintenance.

The Search for Alice: Britany Freeman

Britany Freeman’s had a problem for a few years. She wanted this one van. And not just one kind of van. But this one van, which she named Alice years before it was even hers. Alice has slipped through Britany’s fingers more than a couple times, and through it all, she could easily have given up. But what makes this story good news is that she didn’t. And what makes it great news is that as of a couple weeks ago, that van is now sitting in her driveway, undergoing a lot of TLC and do-it-yourself renovation projects.

Pushing Through: Becca Foss

Becca Foss, long-term road traveler and outdoor guide, knows firsthand through the loss of her husband that sometimes you just have to find ways to push yourself through. It might be climbing a steep hill on a loaded up bike, sending a rock wall, or facing unexpected tragedy and learning how to meet it head on. Being strong doesn’t always look like pushing past your limits. Sometimes it simply looks like showing up regularly and sticking it out. Because when we keep pushing through, even just a little bit at a time-- eventually we do reach the other side.

You're Doing Your Best: Grizel Williams

Mental health is something we've talked about before on the show, but never before has it felt more important to dive in. Whether you're a full-time traveler and your shelter is a car or a tent, or you have a more stationary place to stay and you're feeling stagnant-- the reality is that this forced by necessary stillness is a challenge for us all, on top of the anxiety that can be triggered during crisis.

We Can Still Find Beauty: Giddi Oteo

Giddi Oteo, former full-time road traveler, has an inherent knack for holding both the real, transparent truth and the beauty around her. And it’s a reminder that no matter how heavy a life chapter might feel, it’s still possible to find beauty and happiness where you're at right now. If you’re in need of a pick-me-up that doesn’t sugar coat things, then you’re in the right place.
