The Van Project

Vanlifers Bay Area, California

We’re Matt and Amanda, a photographer and copywriter team travelling the American West in our 1964 Clark Cortez motorhome, which we renovated ourselves two years ago. Since hitting the road we’ve been following warm weather to climbing and hiking destinations across Utah, Colorado, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada and Arizona. When we’re not hard at work creating content for eco-friendly brands, climbing, or hiking, we’re probably soaking in a hot spring or hunting down the creamiest, tastiest ice cream.

We’re currently pursuing our dream of completing our P1, P2, and P3 paragliding certifications and travelling around the Bay Area.

We randomly met at Burning Man in 2014, but then found out we went to the same high school in Connecticut!

Our relationship started with a 3.5-month trip in South American traveling from Ecuador to Southern Patagonia.

Matt worked for the Forest Service for two seasons as a wildland firefighter.
