”. The van, stationed in a campus parking lot, would be more than an adventure—it would be his very own “Walden on Wheels. Freezing winters, near-discovery by campus police, and the constant challenge of living in a confined space would test Ilgunas’s limits and resolve in the two years that followed.

Walden on Wheels: On The Open Road from Debt to Freedom #ad - Debt-free, ilgunas then enrolled in a master’s program at Duke University, determined not to borrow against his future again.
