    Jess and Mike Shisler have been on the road in their 2013 Mercedes Sprinter cargo van since April of this year. They bought it in October 2016 with the goal of finishing their conversion and starting their journey in time to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. The Shislers spent five months converting the van, which now features a propane stove, small refrigerator, sink, composting toilet and solar panels.

    "We saved so much money doing it ourselves," Jess said.
