Genevieve abandoned her high stress marketing career to pursue a life of adventure on the road. She’s been traveling across the country and living out of her vehicle for over a year now. Joshua Tree is a place that she has a special connection with and she has stayed in the area for extended periods of time and become part of the climbing community.
Her car was full of small meaningful possessions. She had a love letter attached to her visor, along with photographs and a sentimental 20 dollar bill that was gifted to her by some friends for “emergency gas money.” She also had a collection of feathers, rocks, cotton, and a buddha figurine. In the back she had a corner for her maps, books, and essential oils.

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.
