More and more people are taking a break from conventional life for the freedom and adventure of being on the road and living in a converted vintage truck, camper, or van.One of these vandwellers, Foster Huntington, created the #vanlife hashtag as he chronicled his adventures living in a van while driving across country. He tapped into a community of like-minded individuals looking to explore nature at their own pace.VAN LIFE showcases the best crowd-sourced photographs of stunning beaches, misty forests, and rocky mountains from Foster's tumblr account, many of which have never been posted.
In 2011, Foster Huntington quit his fashion job in New York city and moved into a camper van. Since then, he has driven more than 100,000 miles around the American west, surfing and camping. He began the popular tumblr account, van-life.net, in 2011.
