Today I found this old picture of my van when I first got it:

And I just want to share because I'm so proud and in love with the little home I've created. It's a world away from the soulless shell it used to be.

Wow, that looks great! Good work!

The only time I envy shorter people is when I see them sleeping side to side across a van. I am so tall that my bed has to go front to back and that takes up most of the floor space.

Oohh that's tough, I'm 5"7 so I have to sleep diagonally in my bed and it's the perfect fit. Means sharing with anyone besides my dog is a no go.

Sweet stove! I had a nice sized wood burner on my bus. Never thought to put one in a van. Couldn't dream of needing one in El Paso.

Thanks for sharing.

Yeah I bet you don't need one in El Paso! I however live in England and winters are much much nicer when you don't have to wear everything you own!

What a badass van!
Can you show us how you vent it and what it looks like from the outside? Also do you take anything off the stack when you're driving?

Goal

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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
