The Van Life Freedom Author

Hello there fellow van life enthusiast. I’m Joshua.

I’ve discovered the ultimate business model for remote workers.

With this business model, I’m able to:

👉 Own my own van completely debt-free

👉 Survive for several days without wifi

👉 Create semi-passive income online

👉 Run my business from any parking lot

But hey, let’s talk about that later. Back to these beautiful creators…

Linnea and Akela FAQs (January 2023)

Van Name



Linnea Schmelzer (age 27)

Chris (age 29) – I couldn’t find his last name

Akela is their dog

The Van

They have a 2016 Ram Promaster that was previously a delivery van.


Their van is still a bit of a work in progress, but they have solar, a fridge, bathroom and a ton of storage for their outdoor adventures.

Affording It

Linnea simply worked hard for her dream of nomadic living. No handouts or rich uncles here! Chris also contributed to the build.

Making Money

Today in 2023, Linnea and Akela on YouTube has a net worth of $120,000 and makes $3,100 per month.

She does this via:

👉 Ads that run on her channel

👉 Numerous brand sponsorships

They don’t monetize their channel as much as other creators.


I have not seen them do any collabs.


They are building a cabin in Wisconsin but will continue traveling around the United States

Past Travels

In the past, they have explored most of North America.

Big Moments

Togo needed a new transmission and Linnea got a new boyfriend, but apart from that, her journey has been relatively easy going!

Future Plans

Where to next? Will Chris propose and Linnea fall pregnant? We’ll have to wait and see! I do like the direction that the channel is heading.

Key Lessons

What can we learn from this unique #vanlife channel?

👉 Build the right van that suits you and your goals

👉 You can do vanlife single while in a relationship

👉 The woods are a seriously safe space for us all

And of course, find a partner who supports you.


I have really enjoyed watching Linnea’s channel evolve over the last 18 months and can’t wait to see how they’ll transition to #cabinlife from #vanlife.
