About Us

Sarah is an artist and writer with a lifetime interest in camping and survival techniques.

Living the #vanlife since before it was a hashtag and touring on two wheels with her husband Ryan, they have a wealth of camping and motorcycling knowledge to share, and know a thing or two about packing light!

 

In 2011 my husband and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK. 

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life! We make good use of everything we can, ‘make or mend’ being our first choice of action before venturing near a store. Technically speaking we're camping in one form or another 365 days a year, so we've picked up a few tricks to share along the way.

 

I’m a writer, a keen cook, an artist of unique commissions, and I know an edible/medicinal wild plant or two...

I might be described as an outgoing-hermit if there is such a thing.

Eccentric? Probably.

I read fast and I’m curious. I like learning new skills and am extremely passionate about nature so you can expect to read plenty about that.

I’m also pretty good with an axe... ;)

I’m a dreamer, day and night, which means that sometimes I struggle to get anything done! Other times I'll work till I drop.

I laugh far too loudly and I probably talk too much! (OK, definitely, but I’m working on that - though a 'busy' internal dialogue does come in handy for article writing so you benefit in the end!)

I’m a terrible fidget, in a chair or in life in general and enjoy fitness activities like running, yoga, HIIT, martial arts... does dancing in the kitchen count? 

As for the rest (and yes there’s plenty more to this odd duck!) well you’ll just have to read on, or ask me in person - preferably beside a camp fire somewhere wild... ;)

Ryan, my partner-in-crime, er, exploration, is a motorcycle-mad, talented mechanic who’s quick thinking has gotten us out of all manner of fixes on (and off) the road!

He’s a keen craftsman/engineer when inspiration strikes...

His knowledge of tyres and motorcycle parts is frankly encyclopaedic.

He loves venturing off the beaten track, perhaps too far at times but that does make for some funny stories!

Like me, he’s also pretty good with an axe...!

Ryan’s also an excellent ice-skater, can fly a plane, yet most impressively (to me anyway) he’s particularly good at assuring me that everything is going to be fine... ♥
