Hi, I'm new. Just wanted to introduce myself.

Recommended Posts

I don't look this generic in real life. I am at work and don't have any pics to post. I'll do so when I get home.


I love to travel, and now that I will be retiring next year, I'm looking forward to being on the road as much as possible. That is where I am happiest.


I'm a part time van dweller. I bought a GMC cargo van, designed it with what I had in mind, and found a company to put it together for me. It's a stealth van I named Maxine. I wanted the liberty to go anywhere I wanted; in or out of the city. I like the fact that I can basically pull over anywhere and camp. It's very empowering. From the outside my van looks like a typical work van. It keeps me under the radar.


I am seeing somebody, but she's not into my lifestyle so I tend to travel most of the time by myself. I don't mind resorts and such, but they aren't my thing. I would rather be camping in my rig or in a tent than be at a 5 Star Hotel. That's just me. I thought it would be nice to meet some people who understand the lure of the open road and can relate to the lifestyle.


I have a ten day trip planned for November up the coast to San Francisco and next year I'm planning a four to six week trip to Baja, which I'm very excited about.


I like to learn and grow, and look forward to reading the articles on the site, interacting with people on the forum, and get more involved in the overall organization. Look forward to meeting some of you.
