Gotta Go

Subsequent to the earlier post about my van’s sink, even more important than a sink is a portable toilet. I knew that if I were going to take MoCa on the road for extended trips, I would need a bathroom. Granted, there are plenty of available restrooms on the road, but if you’re in a [...]

1999 Chevy Express Sink

I created a functioning sink for my 1999 Chevy Express conversion van.  Back when I decided I wanted to give this van traveling a try, I knew there were certain creature comforts I felt I couldn’t live without.

Chevy Conversion Van

I’m now the proud owner of a 1999 Chevy Express 1500 Conversion Van, my mobile cabin! Everything went according to plan. The only downer is the feelings of the prior owner.

Mobile Cabin

Back in March, I wrote about looking for a mobile cabin. The first thing I needed to do was find a way to finance my mobile cabin. Fortunately, I’m able to cross off the first item on my “to do” list because I found employment. Granted, it’s part-time employment, but it is a start for [...]
