When Samantha Hoy accepted a freelance gig that allowed her to work remotely, she didn't become a regular at the local coffee shop, take up residence in a co-working space, or operate from the comfort of home (and risk cabin fever) like remote workers tend to do. Instead, she and a friend hit the road, traveling 11,000 miles over the course of two months. This short video from Satchell Drakes highlights Samantha's decision to ditch the cubicle and live out of the back of a truck.
