Everytime I see a luscious van tour, I'm reminded that I said I'd make one of my van. But I'm also reminded that I don't have a drone or a sexy beard and really all I have is a camera on my phone that rarely has a battery and maybe an improvised selfie stick (stick + gaffer tape) I'm gonna try anyway. You can all have a laugh if nothing else

PS. That van is super cool. My van is jealous.

I'm jealous that it seems like every van dweller in the uk/Europe has a sweet high top! They must be cheap/plentiful out there...

Yes they are definitely plentiful and you can pick a fairly good converted one up for about £3000+

I think in the UK we have them a lot because on a standard driving licence (passed post 1997) you can only drive vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes and so we opt for high top panel vans as They give you a good amount of space. I reckon there's probably more of them over here because we're a smaller country and maybe need to transport less stuff and smaller distances than in the USA and also some of our roads are small and you couldn't get a big lorry down them so a lot of companies use panel vans. Just my theory anyway.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$80.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $80.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $80.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Latest Status Updates

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect. If you would like to get the full story, feel free to contact me directly. I will still be hosting this year's annual party as i have for the past four years.
