    Well worth the 12 minutes - very inspiring :)

    "After cruising out to the West Coast from Pennsylvania in his VW Bus for a photography internship, James Barkman has set his sights on living on his own terms. For him this means perfecting his craft by hunting down photo-ops full time in his Westfalia with Surfboards on top and a Dual-Sport Motorcycle in tow.

    James, 22, might not be as conventional when it comes to his living arrangements, but creating a space to be creative in the form of his Westfalia, has pushed him further than he ever thought he'd go.

    Balancing maintenance and repairs on the Westy with a promising career in photography are just a few of the many things the talented Mr. Barkman excels at, and we wish him the best of luck has he continues to grow on his journey."

    Yeah Chuck, many people reply when you ask them how they are, with "living the dream" James actually is :cool: fortunately he chose a car/van fully maintanable by himself .... with his stated 10mpg you got to wonder how much stuff he's carrying BUT he doesn't seem to care :)
