Live with less. Experience more.


Welcome to ManVanDogBlog! My name is Joe Hawley and I’m currently traveling around the country with my rescue pup Freedom in my new Sprinter van. I started this blog so that I could share some of my experiences and hopefully have a positive impact on this world by inspiring people to go after what they want in life. We all have the ability to find happiness, we just need the right tools and direction. By following my journey, I hope to leave you feeling inspired to find what makes you happy. The best place to start is from within.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!’” – Hunter S. Thompson
