What would you do if you had no responsibilities? If you could get rid of your job, all of your bills, and not have to answer to anyone—how would you spend your days?

My friend and filmmaker, Nick Conedera (director of The Miracle Morning Movie) decided to answer that question for himself. He burned his possessions (literally), got rid of everything he owned, and spent three (3) years living in a van and traveling around the country. 

He tells the story of his journey in his brand new book, 70MPH: Grab the Wheel and Haul Ass to Your Dreams. I highly recommend picking up a copy. Nick is one of the best storytellers I know, and you won’t be disappointed! 

  • Why Nick decided to take a departure from his “normal life,” get rid of his belongings, and hit the open road.
  • The personal challenges that come with living in a van—and why we as humans are more than capable of adapting to them.
  • How living in a van helped Nick bring his existence into alignment with his values, find harmony with nature, and feel happier.
  • Why you don’t need to burn everything you own and move into a van to live in alignment with your values—and how to tell if it’s time to take a journey of your own.
