Wesley

Wesley is from Alberta, Canada and likes to take road trips for about a month at a time. He’s a climber and had been to Joshua Tree before. He planned to spend about a week here climbing and then would explore some more parks out west.


When I asked about his sentimental object, he said the only extra “non-essential” item that he has is a small teddy bear with a shirt that says “Go Westy.” He said it was the only object that survived the flooding of his last van, and the bear is his little road trip mascot that lives on his dashboard.

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.
