    One day in a nomad's life

    June 14, 2019 in Russia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    The day to day life as an Overlander is not always super exiting and there’s a lot of routine daily chores. Hence, I wanted to describe how a regular day so far looks like for us.

    1. Waking up around 6:30
    2. Tom crawls down from the roof and stars making coffee. The setup now is a hand grinder, the Bialetti coffee maker and the Cola can burner with white gas
    3. Jo turns Hans from bedroom to living room
    4. Yoga
    5. Breakfast: depending on the temperature either Muesli, porridge or bread
    6. Planning where we’re headed on that day
    7. Fixing stuff if something’s broken and checking that the car’s alright
    8. Filter drinking water from the next source of water. Current setup is a 0.1 um filter for big stuff and bacteria plus a charcoal filter for heavy metals
    9. Turning Hans from a living room into a car
    10. Driving for a few hours
    11. Every third day we’re shopping for groceries. Oats, rice and lentils are big on the menu.
    12. Looking for a nice spot to stay for the rest of the day
    13. Turning Hans into a living room
    14. Cooking dinner. Preferably on a camp fire to save up fuel, otherwise we use our Coleman dual fuel stove
    15. Washing up and putting everything back where it belongs
    16. Have a beer around the camp fire
    17. Turn Hans into a bedroom
    18. Go to bed around 10pm for an episode of whichever show we’re hooked on at the moment
    19. Sleep and repeat
