I’m Maggie Jay and I am the writer and photographer behind the former page Travel and Cannabis. Lately though, things have changed. Damien walked into my life and we rode to Florida to purchase our first tiny home on wheels. Van life…
Our van life was coming to a head and we agree, the last month was probably our favorite. We took a lot of time to be alone the last month, really growing together and figuring out our next steps in the vanabus and in life. Sometimes, that meant arguments, other times it meant deep conversation over a few beers and beautiful sunsets. This is just the first part of the last month of our adventure.
Slowly plodding our way back into Phoenix with our gasket on it’s last leg, we pulled up to the post office around 11:30. If you are ever on the road, using General Delivery is the way to go. All you have to do is find the main post office in town, have your mail address to you at the address in care of, “General Delivery.” The post office will hold your mail for up to 30 days.
I feel at home, but in a very different way than I ever have. It is harder to live on the road than it is to live in a home, no doubt. Somehow though, living this way is ever so fulfilling. Like I’ve earned my hot shower, the warm food, the California King bed, even the cross breeze through the windows.
We have reveled in mountain top night shoots, hung a hammock in the middle of a snowy forest, smoked at the Great Sand Dunes, dipped our toes into numerous hot springs and met new and interesting folks along the way. Crazy to think that the adventure wasn’t even halfway over.
I have been using Empire Papers for the last 9 months or so, after being introduced to them by a cool homie from San Diego. We smoked them over Chalice Cup weekend and I have been wanting oh so badly to give them a review. I just couldn’t wait anymore. Having used Empire Papers for such a long time, I definitely have some things to say.
