Today is Day 1

Today is Day 1

After months of planning, researching, converting the van, documenting, dreaming, we’re finally there. Today, we leave everything behind. Today, we just drive (far).

The last few weeks completely drained our energy. It was a race against the clock to finish the van, to sell/give away everything we owned that didn’t fit in the van and to say goodbye to our family and friends.


It’s time to recover. To slow-down the pace and take advantage of our new resource: time. There’s no rush anymore.

Time is ours now, but we didn’t quit our jobs and move into a van to be idling… There is so much to do out there, it’s time to ride! Except, Antoine thumb’s down incident will take the ride out of FarOutRide, we’ll have to learn to take it easy for a little while and we’re not very good at that.
So here we are. Heading toward Montana. We’re not sure exactly what we’ll find there. And how long we’ll stay. And where we’ll go next. But, you know, getting lost in time and space is the whole point of this FarOutThing…

about us

Nice To Meet You.

Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017 we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers and moved into our self built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

  1. My first night in the van was in northern VT, looks like you drove right past me! Good luck on the trip, what made you choose Montana? Looking forward to following your journey.

    • The mountains. We’ll start North then follow the nice weather to the South until like December to ride our bikes. Then, probably drive to Utah to catch the lake effect on our splitboards.
      So you’re traveling in a van too?

      • Used mine for the Green Mountain Stage Race this past weekend up in the Mad River Valley area of VT. Planning on lots of long weekend trips this fall around New England and hopefully taking it to So. California in February.

        I’m also drawn to the mountains, so will have them close by wherever i am headed.
