I forgot the names of this sweet Canadian couple. They are from Quebec and they’re on a three month road trip through the U.S. The interior of their vehicle was very clean and organized. They seemed to have pretty minimal possessions and their sentimental objects included two stuffed animals. One was bought for their daughter when she was a kid, and the other was a gift for their grandkid. They travel with the two stuffed animals and take pictures with them everywhere on their adventures, and then send the pictures to their daughter and grandkid. It’s their "flat stanley" of sorts.

This is a blog about transient lifestyles. I'm fascinated by people who live on the road for extended periods of time and I want to document what kinds of objects people decide to bring when there is limited space. I'm particularly interested in asking about objects with sentimental or aesthetic value. What are the excess possessions that people bring for comfort or decoration, and what might this say about their character and identity?
Joshua Tree National Park attracts a lot of interesting travelers and I want to share the stories of the people that I encounter here.
