Let's be honest. At one time or another we’ve all thought about quitting our 9 to 5 job and heading out on the road, searching for adventure and living life as it comes to us.

After spending months at a time on the road as a professional photographer, he decided to go full-bore, get rid of the apartment and build himself an adventure mobile — something that would allow him a little more room than his Toyota Tacoma did while still giving him access to rugged locations that something like an RV couldn’t.

Watch the edit below to see how he did it. (Hint: He did get a little help from grandma, who had an old van in her front yard she didn't want anymore.)

With a little elbow grease, time and patience, your very own adventuremobile can become a reality. Time to hit the road!
