Meet the married couple who packed their life into a van and hit the road before their first wedding anniversary and plan to visit every U.S state by next summer

Idea born after seeing a van for sale while backpacking at the Grand CanyonThey bought a their own Mercedes Sprinter to convert at a cost of $15,000Currently in Florida, the couple has driven 18,000 miles through 38 states so far

As far as settling into married life goes, renovating a van then packing your worldly goods into it and hitting the road is certainly unconventional.

But this is exactly what Mike and Jessica Shisler, from Baltimore, Maryland, did in the year following their wedding.

The couple have been on the road since April of this year and plan to have visited every U.S state by next summer.

Currently in Florida, the couple has driven 18,000 miles through 38 states so far

The idea was born when the Shislers were backpacking in Grand Teton National Park when they noticed a converted Sprinter van for sale on the side of the road.

Despite being out of their price range a seed had been planted in their minds and two months later, in October 2016, they bought their own 2013 Mercedes Sprinter to convert themselves, at a cost of $15,000 over five months.

The adventurous couple are currently in south Florida, having driven 18,000 miles through 38 US states and part of Canada.

Mike is an architect-turned-artist who keeps a sketchbook and draws every day the places they go. Through his Instagram account and Etsy he sells his artwork to a growing number of people

‘We love that everywhere we go we are at home’. Jessica and Mike Shisler plan to have visited every U.S state by next summer

They aim to have visited all the states by next summer after a trip to Alaska and are documenting their trip on their own dedicated website.

‘We love that everywhere we go we are at home,’ said Jessica.

‘Every day is a new adventure and a new experience. We also enjoy the financial freedom that comes from not paying a mortgage and the emotional and physical freedom from not working the standard 40-plus-hour work week.

While the couple is delighted by their nomadic lifestyle, they do keep mental notes of the places they could see themselves living in the future

Mike Shisler has spent many cold evenings after work building the interior of the van that he and his wife were to call home as they travelled the length and breadth of the USA

‘A big part of van life for us is about being present in the moment and trying not to plan out every next step.

‘We are really enjoying this lifestyle but do keep mental notes of the places we could see ourselves living in the future.’

The couple are able to fund their nomadic lifestyle by keeping jobs on their travels.

The idea to travel around America in a van was born after seeing a van for sale while backpacking at the Grand Canyon

Home from home: The Shisler’s van has a double bed, kitchen, storage space – and there’s even room for their pet dog

Mike is an architect-turned-artist who keeps a sketchbook and draws every day the places they go.

Through his Instagram account and Etsy he sells his artwork to a growing number of people.

Jess is a scientist who got frustrated with the lack of communication and outreach in medical research and now helps translate technical information for public consumption.

The couple’s Mercedes Sprinter was converted at a cost of $15,000

Travelling the US in a van affords the Shisler’s a nomadic lifestyle without having to sacrifice home comforts like a cosy double bed or slick kitchen

Despite their love of the lifestyle and somewhat steady income it hasn’t all being plain sailing for the pair.

‘Living in a city like Baltimore made it difficult to build out the van,’ added Jessica.

‘Our urban neighbourhood had little parking and certainly no place for a large cargo van. The solution was to park the van at a nearby storage unit. Mike would bike to the lot every night after work to build the van.

‘Living in a city like Baltimore made it difficult to build out the van,’ admitted Jessica

‘All of our build materials were kept in a rented storage unit, all of our tools had to be battery powered. He often worked in the dark and cold of a Northeast winter, preparing for our departure date in the late spring.

‘The biggest problem we’ve had on the road was when we were rear ended in a hit and run accident on the side of the road while we were sleeping in San Francisco.

‘After the other driver fled the scene, we were left with a crumpled rear door and bumper that needed four weeks in the shop to be fixed.

The biggest problem the couple have had on the road is when a hit-and-run driver crashed into the van while the couple was sleeping in San Francisco, causing damage that took four weeks to fix

‘During this time apart from our home, we were fortunate to be welcomed into the homes of friends all along the California coast who offered sofas and air mattresses for us to stay on.’

The couple had a message for anyone who wants to take on the same adventure after nearly not taking the leap themselves.

‘When we first started throwing around the idea of quitting our jobs and moving into a van, we were terrified of how everything would turn out and how people would react to our decision to live an unconventional life,’ explained Jessica.

‘Our message for readers is to work every day towards your dream, knowing that it will be scary, but if it’s in your heart, you can make it happen,’ – Jessica Shisler

‘During this time, two friends of ours who had already made that transition told us, “If it’s a dream you both share, make it happen!”

‘It was the little extra spark of confidence that propelled us to commit to making the jump.

‘So our message for readers is to work every day towards your dream, knowing that it will be scary, but if it’s in your heart, you can make it happen.’

Illustrated plans for the Shisler’s van show plenty of much-needed storage space to cater for the intrepid couple’s belongings

THE BREEZY MOOD IN THE GREENS (9)

The forest you see Nira in is a very MYSTERIOUS place. People call it a forest of divine love where God & goddess of hindusm LORD KRISHNA and his beloved SRIRADHA meet each other at late night.

image

image

It’s a very mysterious also scary forest in India and if you get interested to know more about, just search internet ” Mystery of Nidhivan at Vrindaban “. Locals and tourests are not to be allowed to stay at night in the forest.

image

image

This part where Nira in nude is roaming a secluded corner some away form main part of the forest where laid a temple of Lord Krishna and Radha surrounded with Basil trees.

image

image

Everyday after evening worship the forest area around the temple is closed and if any person stays in that temple area is gotten into either dead or dump, deef and blind in the morning.

image

image

Last year when I desided to visit the place Nira didn’t agree to leave me alone as she was interested to visit the forest but made a joke say as” I don’t permit you to go alone because you may be fallen in love with other lady”.

image

image

So inevitably she was my fellow-traveller in that tour. Indeed I mentally was very glad to get her with me in the tour. After a long journey of around 26 hours we reached that holy place VRINDAVAN. Very famous pilgrimage for Hindu religions at MATHURA District in the state of Uttar Prasesh. India.

image

image

According to Hindu Scripture Lord Krishna born & brought up in Mathura and played his spiritual roles in Vrindavan of Mathura district where the mysterious forest laid in. It is told that VRINDAVAN IS THE PLACE OF ETERNAL LOVE.

image

image

After getting in that holy land we first housed in a small cottage beside the adjoining forest of the holy forest NIDHIVAN. A one beded room was accommodated for us. Nira smiled and told “this bed is enough for two of us”.

image

image

Except that devoted person, the caretaker of the cottage, there was no other one with us. He cooked for us veg foods, At night after visiting the temple and getting freshen up we were gossiping together in the room when Nira was seated on my lap wearing a skimpy night frock.

image

image

Just then the man got into the room and saw out that bawdy scene we had. He stared a few to Nira with smily face when Nira was demurred. “No, my baby, don’t be ashamed, you are enjoying love with your consort, it’s very normal thing and indeed you are now tending on a land of eternal love”.

image

image

Actually he came to know about if we liked tea that time and when we accepted he went away to arrange it. Shortly he came back with a tray of tea cups and served us, then pulling out a chair he sat in it before us. ” I liked yours loving couple, so I wish to expound you a latent theory about our body and mind” he expressed.

image

image

We together shouted out ‘yes’ eagerly and the man started ” you know fire is a most important thing for human life, but uncontrolled fire could smashed life deplorably. Similarly human life is driven by six cholers, such as sorrow, joy, fury, fear, lust and greed”.

image

image

“Most of the people are unable to keep those six thing in control properly and as a result have to face painful life. Mainly the lust(sex) control is very important for spiritual development. So I wish to see both of you in strong willpower with a hard test”.

image

image

What is the test? We asked. ” Tomorrow morning after bath you couple will be remained clothesless, fully naked whole the day and night. Then the morning after tomorrow you will take on clothes after having bath and will go temple to pray worship. But remember in that naked state you will spend in the forest roaming and fondling each other with revered mind removing salacity. It’s called mortification”. He suggested.

image

image

Getting interested we obeyed as he told rambling in sacred firest, hugging and loving passonately each other in nude whole the day till evening but one thing I must point out that a couple Sexually strong like us hardly persecuted all the sensualities to be success in the test. These photos had been take in midday in deep forest.

WHILE SHE WAS BLOSSOMING(Part-10)

***(continuation of part – 9)***

By midmorning when Lissa was busy at culinary I just finished my coffee cup for the second time. She took on a fancy coloured apron over her stripped body in the kitchen. Normally She remains nude in house while I stay with her as she likes to be fondled lightly by me amid homeworks. She was looking very captivating that I couldn’t ignore her celestial beauty. So I put down my coffee mug and took up camera to capture her nice poses in the kitchen.

(Continuation of part-8)

We just got back from our one day outing few times ago. Lissa went to toilet to be freshen up and I sat in a chair naked after taking off dresses I wore and was reviewing pictures in camera I snapped today. Coming out from toilet wearing black bra and panty Lissa arranged two glasses of whiskey for us. She gave one glass in my hand and sat on my lap with other glass. She was also watching her nude photos along me while sipping on wine. After finishing glass in some times she went out to bed and started waggery in her lunacy and I caught that moments in camera withal. I love her heartily and take care sincerely as I can’t forget ever that her parents are not more today beside her. So she is my very fondling crony.

WHILE SHE WAS BLOSSOMING(Part-7)

I believe in God and the notion I keep that Lissa, this cute lady in my life is just blessing of God. She is as if a lamp in darkness of my life. Once she was my friend only but a couple years ago we had fallen in love of each other when she got alone after her parent’s death in a dire road accident and I settled up a marital affinity over taking up all of her burden for ever. Now I have to provide all of monetary support for her. Presently she is studying MBA in another city to some distance from my hometown. Normally I meet her once in a month for at least one to two days as I can’t be remained for long without visiting her. But recently I have to suffer that very hurt as I was out of station for few month. Last week I drove out to her for few days to spend in enjoying with her sending Nira to her parents. Nira is second lady in my life about whom I have been writing in “BREEZY MOOD IN THE GREENS”. But I didn’t disclose yet anything about Nira to Lissa.
However, When I went to Lissa, some exigent stuffs including a bottle of wine for Lissa I took with me because I knew that she likes to drink very much with me. Yes, only with me. I forbade her to take wine whenever she likes in my absence and she obeys my words.
At night after having adequate drinks she demanded me with her in the bed to frisk until fully satisfection. Although she is looking younger but she is not teen and sexually very strong potent lady.
Here I caught those moments in camera when that drunk lady was capering with extreme salacity in the bed.

THE BREEZY MOOD IN THE GREENS (8)

NUDITY OF MY LOVE…
image

image

It’s an unusual relationship we are belonging in our life. Nira is not my wife but we live together as consort of each other even we believe it mentally.

image

image

After we coming back from latest trip ( I wrote in part -7) Nira is staying with me in my house for some days getting permission of her parents. Her parents knew that I am only man of their daughter’s life.

image

image

They are now out of station on a relaxation tour. We two members of my home are working persons. Everyday in the morning I drive away with Nira first to her office and then I start for my concern.

image

image

Likewise since getting back in the evening I first take up Nira from her office and then start for home. Occasionally I go directly from office to my friends circle to spend few times when Nira remains with me and she also joins in our gossiping.

image

image

Commonly my friends start waggery with her as a friend’s wife and she also keeps on track with laughing high. That day was Nira’s birth day, so after office hour we spent some times in a park, coffee shop, market and ultimately in a restaurant for dinner.

image

image

I took from the market a beautiful sexy pink nighty for Nira and a wine bottle as Nira desired. Practically both of us are very sensual but we don’t coupling frequently without gap for few days.
image

image

On her birthday Nira firmly declared that she would not care any bar for that night and we would enjoy sex all over the night. So we had have to take preparations for the same.

image

image

After getting home we both took a freshen bath and Nira put on that pink nighty. Then we started taking liquors with kissing and other passion. Ultimately when we got in the bed and Nira was taking off her clothes I caught some moments of severe sensual appetite in my camera.
