Even when he was in the US Navy, Harrison Schoen never stuck around long at any one location. And over the years, he’d even gotten used to tight living quarters on aircraft carriers. With his military service behind him, he came up with the idea of converting a Cayenne into a mobile home in spring 2021.
He has been sleeping in the car ever since, cooking on a camping stove and bathing under a roof-mounted shower. Schoen has since completed some of the most difficult tours in the western United States and set himself the goal of visiting every national park in the US.

South African Shane Oosthuizen had precisely this idea and was interested in driving the full length of Africa with his fiancée. However, the pandemic got in the way of his plans, which is why the two of them drove the car from Austria, where it had been converted, across Europe to the Netherlands and had it shipped from there to South Africa. The Oosthuizens have since driven across their home country, including Lesotho and Botswana and covered around 100,000 kilometers in Africa and Europe, with more adventures to come.
