Sara, aka Kip Elderberry is a free spirit van liver hailing from Upstate NY. This hard working, hard adventuring, big loving traveler built an efficient and sustainable road lifestyle, and then the worst happened. Her carefully maintained van burst into flames while driving down a South Dakota highway on Monday.
She had just enough time to grab guitar, phone, and wallet. What she’s been able to salvage is covered in the soot of her home, and chemical fire retardant.
It’s hard to imagine, but she just lost everything. Despite that, Kip is in good spirits and accepting loving support from friends. The BSP asks you to help send immediate needed funds to help this inspiring person continue their adventures.

Spirit of Adventure Embodied
People like Kip push limits, explore places, and test their humanity in ways the rest of us can’t or won’t. I get a lot of inspiration from following Kip’s Instagram page.

Yesterday morning my little home on wheels caught on fire while I was en route from NY to Idaho. It was devastating. But through this time, the amount of kind hearted people who have been helping me figure this all out has been overwhelming. I really don’t know how to thank you all enough, but please just know that my heart is full and I will never forget you and your generosity. You are what the world needs. 💜
It takes time, practice, and patience to learn how to live on The Road, and courage to do it alone. We can all learn a lot from people who master nomadic lifestyles. They’re like needles that pass through the fabric of our society. It behooves us to keep these people moving.
Sharing the Love
Ever the musician and artist, Kip shares her passions, and the abundance of her experiences with those around her.
