You may remember a post about Foster Huntington’s Kickstarter for The Cinder Cone back in February. Huntington was also the man behind the #vanlife hashtag on Instagram, cataloguing the time he spent living out of his camper van.

“The Wanderlust of #Vanlife” is a short documentary, produced by The Atlantic, focusing on the people who choose to undertake the van lifestyle and the community it’s created. Watch the video below!

Around this time last year Foster Huntington decided to build the ultimate tree house and skate bowl.

Watch the video of The Cinder Cone below.

“Gone Tomorrow” by Ian Durkin


I should have never watched this, now I won’t be able to work for the rest of the day. Ian Durkin met up with Mr. Van Life Foster Huntington and, well, if you know who either of them are you, know what they did for the next ten days.

If anyone needs me I’ll be on Craigslist looking for camper vans. Watch the video below!
