Thrust into the van life before I was ready – need some serious advice on making some money on the road.

My thoughts:

Respectfully:

You say you made an emotional decision to leave town, and are now in another town and sound like (not accusing, just saying that’s what it sounds like) you’re letting your emotions drive you still.

Would it possibly be a better idea to stick there for a few days or week or whatever to save up enough for more than a half tank of gas and get insurance? can you get around a bit on foot, keep most of the gas you have now, and put a few more $ in your pocket?

I will add a disclaimer that I’ve not dealt with your situation or anything near it, but I’d hate to be stuck down the road with a completely empty tank in a smaller town where a cop does want to impound your car for no insurance, if they don’t have a habit of doing it in JAX

Doesn’t just driving it vs not increase the risk of a ticket for no insurance and could just complicate your matters further?
