    Traded One Connect For Another.. The Adventure Continues

We've hated how the spare was mounted under the rear of the van, so we had Discount Tire drop the spare and remove the cabling system. This meant...

    Traded One Connect For Another.. The Adventure Continues

    So how long has it been? well here's what's been happening since my last visit. The van is coming along nicely but slow. main reason is because it's very difficult to locate parts for the Connect here in the states. I've had better luck searching in UK. In fact the van went from16'', to 17'' and...

    To anyone who might consider the airbnb type sites, your chances of being filmed/video taped is greater while using an airbnb dwelling than it is staying at a hotel. So unless you like to have big brother watching you, by all means stay in some strangers home..

    Vehicle For Sale Selling my van

    The objective here, is to NOT buy someone else mistake when you buy used. start clean and that's what we did. Plus we have too much involved in this right now to stop. We're keeping this van. So even if a dealership or private buyers offers us 3x, 4x or even 5x as much, we're still not selling...

    Huge insurance rate increase with Geico in MN

    I've made this warning months ago on the Connect forums. We learn that our insurance company listed us (without us knowing) as being handicapped, retired and out van listed as "commercial use only". Because our insurance company decided to do their own thing without us knowing, this sent our...

    Nature Lover and friends keep in touch

    You're map is showing a route we drove 2 years ago and driving through the plans states was difficult because of the high winds. We had to stop several times in our little van and even while sitting still the wind can get dangerous. Depending on the seasons, I'd head more north along the Canada...

    FYI, We've been using the Hipcamp app for some time now and although many of these places are merely located in people's back yards, there is a few actual camp sites with flush toilets and showers. Those we've found worth of using again, will remain hidden and remain a secret. Find your site today.

    Traded One Connect For Another.. The Adventure Continues

    @Debrajoy54 Not gone.. just yet. but as I spoke with one of the admins, I really doubt there's anyone in the vandwelling community who wants to see what direction we've taken the van.. and although we sleep in the back, we're calling our build a "sleeper" build and the name has nothing to do...

    solo wheelchair travelers

    A Lot of tough challenges to over come and I thought just having gout (one leg) was hard. You're going to have to get with a handicapped installer to place several ramps or lifts on your vehicle as well as the toy hauler. GL on your travels.
