John Benedict, an astrologer and body masseur, studies an astrological chart on his laptop he plugs into his friend’s storage shed which he uses as a place to cook and get electricity in Topanga Canyon, California. John has lived out of his Volkswagon Vanagon for over 25 years to avoid unnecessary monthly living expenses. Reducing his possessions to fit in his van and only turning on his flip phone to listen for voicemail, John is able to lead a very minimal, inexpensive lifestyle that keeps him closer to nature and his community.
