About wheel travel far

WTF is dedicated to exploring the world by wheels. Some call it #vanlife while others prefer overlanding. Outsiders see it as a bohemian social media movement and the critics dismiss it as crazy. These are the unfiltered stories and experiences from people's adventures on the road.

WHAT IS WHEEL TRAVEL FAR?

WTF is a multi-host show that interviews people either currently living on the road or have spent a significant amount of time on the road in the past. The commonality between all of our guests is they travel via wheels– a bike, motorcycle, sprinter van, 4x4 truck, or even an RV. Our interviews aim to showcase the variety of motivations and approaches that put people on the road.

WHO LISTENS TO WHEEL TRAVEL FAR?

Our show resonates with the people intrigued by the vanlife and overlanding movements.

It is for people with a renewed interest in the American road trip, outdoorsiness, and/or a desire to understand what life looks like outside the 9-5.

The creators

Megan Bristol & Nick Polinko are co-pilots, on and off the air. In June 2017, we ditched our Silicon Valley jobs to spend a year and half driving and surfing our way south along the PanAmeriacn Highway in a 2001 Toyota Landcruiser and Turtleback Trailer. Before going on our trip we had an idea of how and why people hit the road - mostly driven by the social media depiction of it.  A year later, we have been blown away by the variety of approaches and the diverse set of people we have seen and met. We want to help demystify "vanlife" & overlanding by sharing the stories and insights from the people actually doing it. You don't have to look like models with a large Instagram following and you don't have to be a hard core 4x4 truck guru either.  Anyone can do it!

EPISODE QUOTES

I think another lie of vanlife is this concept that your problems aren’t going to follow you onto the road. You know if you’re frustrated with your job or don’t know what you want to do with your life or maybe you have an issue with your family, that van life is going to magically fix that.

Traveling is supposed to be uncomfortable

I think that ambition is great, but it can become too much sometimes and you can find yourself with ambition being busy for busy sake. That’s how I think about it. And so I’m really thinking about this sense of a balance now and introducing more boredom into my life and seeing where that takes me.

When you’re not doing much, that’s exciting with your life..our life became about shopping and ordering in… We needed something extreme to break our habits

My current age self is mad at my 25 year old self for choosing law school and student loans. I wish that I had had the guts and the insight then to just go buy a $500 van and get on the road.
