Las Leñas -
Aproximadamente a 70 km de la ciudad de Malargüe y siguiendo el camino a Valle Hermoso se encuentra la localidad de Las Leñas, un centro de Ski y deportes de invierno muy conocido. Sin embargo, fuera de temporada es aparentemente un pueblo fantasma rodeado de paisajes muy hermosos! Nosotros tuvimos temperaturas muy bajas, de alrededor de -2 grados centígrados durante el día, por lo que decidimos no pasar la noche allí sino en el valle de Los Molles , a unos 15 km de allí. Pero ya eso es otra historia!
Aprox 70 km away from the city of Malargüe lies te city of Las Leñas, a small ski town on the road to Valle Hermoso. However, off-season everything is pretty much closed and the place looks like a ghost town surrounded by beautiful landscapes :). We had very low temperatures (as low as -2 degrees) and decided not to spend the night there but in th Los Molles valley, approx 15 km down the road. But that’s a whole different story :)!

I didn’t end up leaving until today, I simply got too busy yesterday, and before I knew it the whole day had passed. I managed almost 10 hours today, and now I’m part at an ioverlander spot that, in all honesty, I settled for.
I’m going to miss my family, and my friends back home who are like family, but I’ll be home again at Christmas and I’m thankful for all the adventures and quality time we were able to spend together this time around. Dewy and I will miss you guys, we love you, and we’ll see you before you know it!
This time I was home I focused a lot on family time, so I really genuinely apologize to everyone who I pulled the “well hang out next week!” And never got around to making real plans. I did want to, but it seemed as if every “next week” was busier, and passed faster than the last.
We also happened across this gated cave filled with ferns ⛰️🌿♐ Turns out farmers used it to shelter sheep in the 1800s. Thankfully it did not smell like sheep! 🐑🐏 But it's supposedly haunted, so there's that. 👻
The essential gear for a digital nomad; camera, laptop, coffee and a good view. Did I miss anything? 😜🥰☕📸💻🌲

This past weekend @suhasinicg and I ran our first 25K (in a variety of fun weather 🙃☁️🌦️) AND we brought the van out for the first time 🚐 (it's not 💯% yet but def almost there) @shiv_gourshetty has proven to be a total badass when it comes to construction 📐🔨🛠️ Super stoked for winter now! ❄️🏔️
My biggest vanlife expectation violation: I thought working out and staying in shape was going to be much easier than it has been 😬.
When we lived in an apartment, we went to the gym 4-5 times a week. We were lucky our gym was only 6 minutes away which made going to the gym easier (I think everyone struggles to get to the gym sometimes). I really liked starting my workdays, even my Saturdays and Sundays, off at the gym.
I had imagined we’d be so active in the van we wouldn’t even miss going to the gym... well I’m here to say that hasn’t proven true. Yes, we hike a lot but it hasn’t been the same as getting in a good workout.
Working out while living in the van hasn’t been easy, first and foremost because we don’t have a shower (we’re working on it and looking for recs!). Without a shower, getting a good workout in really isn’t an option because we like working up a good sweat and then would definitely need to rinse off!
On shower days, we usually go for a run or do a harder hike but that’s honestly only 1x a week (yes, you read that right. We shower about once a week. Paid showers can add up money-wise and water is very valuable in vanlife).
Like all things in life, we’ll figure it out as we go. We’ll have a shower setup eventually, and then hopefully we can get more workouts in. But for now it’s mostly yoga and hiking.
What everyday things do you imagine would be way easier when doing vanlife?? Or did imagine, if you live in a van now? Because there are certainly lots of things that are easier and I’d love to hear your thoughts! ☺️🤓
JR and I have visited all the musical regions of America. We’ve line-danced to country western in Texas, tried out the polka in Minnesota, and relaxed to the old cowboy tunes of Wyoming under the western stars.
Considering our current roadtrip, through Arkansas and into the Deep South, I’m on the search for the best driving music there is, bursting blue with songs that represent these green hills and lush pastures and wild-flowing rivers. Leave your favorite southern cruising tunes below and I’ll compile them into a catfish-fry worthy playlist. Bring on the Bluegrass (and the Johnny Cash) and let’s boogie. 😏 #ARRoadtrip
We’ve been away for a while... In that time the love for vans and alternative living has only become more strong and important to us.
We’re looking forward to catching up on your awesome projects so be sure to tag us in your photos - see you on the road 🤙 #vanlife_magazine @vanlife_magazine
