That's what I was thinking but didn't want to bring that up due to the possible mpo vs fpo salary debate...again. lol.. but it's a valid point.. is she doing the van life out of necessity or is it like you said.. her choice?

Doesn't seem very amenable to a "make smart investments and have money when I can't play top level disc golf anymore" lifestyle, though.

From the interviews i herd she said that her salary is close to Pauls or even the same, she was i little vague. . but even if she have half that of Paul thats still six figures. . than an ad Disc sales to that

But even if she can afford hotells...is it practical? With a Van you live CLOSE to the course

Sure, if she have a six figure salary and live CHEAP and invest that money she will be economically independent in just a few years

IIRC there was a video where Paige's family helped her build that van, and it appeared to be a labor of love. So my guess is that she likes the van life and the DG tour life, and if she's saving money for the future by doing that, more power to her.

She does need to eat well and correctly, though, no matter what age she is. That can catch up to her over time...

IIRC her interview said her contract had the POTENTIAL to be the highest in all of disc golf. That sounds less like a high set salary and more potential with disc/merchandise sales and media and performance bonuses.

I remember in some interview her Dad said he has a daughter being raised on disc golf starting at an even younger age than Paige.

From all I read I think Paige does the van life mainly because she enjoys it. She has a lot to deal with emotional wise right now. Her career had just caught a shooting star and the sky was the limit. And then along came Coronavirus.

Her career will still very much be there when disc golf resumes. However, I fully agree that it sucks to have things put in limbo right at the beginning of the season in the first year of a huge new contract. For someone who puts basically 100% of their time and energy into disc golf, I can imagine she's pretty bored right now. I guess the only thing to do is push product through Discraft's website and make new videos discussing what she's up to.

The community and comaraderie that comes with that van life can't be bought. Of all the elements of Disc Golf that I could be jealous of it's that that has me daydreaming.
