Mom Puzzled By Yale-Grad Daughter’s #Vanlife

GREENWICH, Conn. — Complaining loudly at a GOP fundraiser Thursday that she’d wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars on her daughter’s Ivy League education, WASPy mother Regina Alistair, 53, declared that she was “not at all pleased with this vanlife shit.”

The uproar came after her daughter, 24-year-old Daisy Alistair, confirmed via Instagram that despite earning her highly expensive M.A. from Yale, she was “stoked to be homeless, unemployed, and living in a van down by the river! #Vanlife #BrokeAF #Blessed #Whiteprivilege.”

Shocked at the level to which things had gone wrong, the WASPy Mom struggled to understand why her daughter wasn't interested in pursuing a career in finance or political consulting, but instead seemed content to live in incredibly beautiful places and develop into a happy, well-rounded human being.

“Where did we go wrong?” the melancholy mother wondered aloud to TGR while nursing a $24.95 Four Seasons cocktail. “When Daisy was little, I’d tell her she could be anything she wanted when she grew up. But what I really meant was, she could be anything I wanted her to be when she grew up.”

When Daisy was little, I’d tell her she could be anything she wanted when she grew up. But what I really meant was, she could be anything I wanted her to be when she grew up.

According to her Instagram handle, @Vantastic, Daisy spent the entire winter in Jackson Hole where she subsisted on foraged ski-lodge food, hustled for couch space, and only accepted temp work that could be immediately abandoned to go skiing at a moment’s notice.

Currently spending her offseason kayaking the Grand Canyon, Daisy reached out to TGR via satellite phone mid-trip to address her mother’s disappointment, but also made clear that she has no intention of going back to a “normal life,” and instead plans to double-down on her #vanlifestyle. 

“Recently I met someone, he was homeless too — so we had a lot in common,” Daisy said. “We moved in together, well, he and his three dogs moved into my van, but whatever ... I really think we have a bright future together!”

With a little TLC, a shipping container can make for a perfect tiny home as Sierra Nevada Athlete Robin Van Gyn and Austen Sweetin demonstrate. Robin Van Gyn Photo. Shipping containers used to have a simple existence. At most, they were a method for transporting objects from one place to the next. Cargo ships, trains, and industrial shipping yards were their homes. Now they’re becoming homes themselves. It turns out that these lego-like boxes already have the perfect ingredients for an

Some of them were champions, and we gave them different

Epic Mountain is one of the crown jewels of Epic Resorts, so the controversy has all but consumed the monolithic Broomfield-based ski conglomerate. Multiple requests for comment from the besieged
