In November 2012, James Campbell and Rachel Goldfarb quit their jobs, left their home in Encinitas, California, gave away most of their possessions, and moved into a 1976 bright orange Volkswagen bus that they named Sunshine.
They wrote a book that chronicles their stories from the road to help fund their travels around the US. Called “Orange is Optimism.“
Take a look at a few of their ‘grams.
Campbell and Goldfarb's journey started with a desire to be outside and 'become more one with the earth,' they write on their website.
After the couple left behind modern conveniences, they said they developed a philosophy, called 'idle theory,' for how to divide their time between being idle, working, and leisure.
'The modern person defines themself by their work-related achievements,' they write. 'We believe that, through limiting our work time, and the material possessions acquired through work, modern man can ... transform into a balanced, whole human being.'
