Stealth camping in your vehicle makes it not only possible to save money on lodging but also keeps things simple while allowing flexibility and spontaneity on your road trip. With a few simple alterations, a car, truck, SUV or van can easily be made into a camper. All you need is some plywood and screws, window covers and air flow and you can park pretty much anywhere where it’s legal, climb in the back and make yourself invisible to the outside while sleeping comfortably and sound in your vehicle. We converted our Chevy Tahoe into a truck camper so we could take trips without having to pay for lodging and without having to tow our travel trailer. We loved the minimalist and simple life in the truck, and it was a great way for us to try vanlife before actually buying a van. After our initial trip to the Florida Keys we did several truck camping trips before we exchanged the Tahoe for a cargo van and the experience even helped with our built for the cargo van conversion.
Our fourth month of full time travel in January 2017 was not very exciting as we were focusing on work and preparing for our upcoming truck camping trip in February. We were excited though to have found some great second hand bikes and were exploring the area around Tallahassee by bicycle which was a lot of fun. We especially loved the trails around Lake Lafayette area as well as the beautiful Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail.
This is Tallahassee’s oldest farmers market, hosting a variety of vendors that offer Certified Organic, Certified Naturally Grown, non chemical, pesticide free, hydroponic and conventionally grown products. Most of the produce is locally and sustainably grown on small farms and harvested the night before. Products range from grass fed beef and pork to local mushrooms, produce and herbs, berries, flowers, cornmeal, pasture raised chicken and eggs, cane syrup, local cheese, goat cheese and milk, honey, pecans and peanuts, soaps and more.
The Tallahassee Farmers Market at the Market Square takes place Saturdays 8AM-3PM and Tuesdays 8AM-5PM all year round.
Location: 1415 Timberlane Rd, Tallahassee, FL 32312.
We recommend to visit early on Saturdays as most vendors are sold out or closing shop by noon. We love this farmers market and the community it builds and supports!
We spoke to the following vendors and want to thank them for their valuable time and information that they shared with us during our visit:
Our 3rd month of full time travel in December 2017 was filled with remote and on-site work and long walks on the beach. We spent most of the month in St. George Island and Tallahassee Florida. St. George Island is one of the barrier islands at the northern Florida Panhandle with a beautiful beach stretching for 22 miles. It’s called “the forgotten coast” for a reason and we loved the empty beach and local low key-vibe. After living in northern climate for most of our lives, we were happy to spend our first winter as full time nomads in Florida where the temperatures are mild.
