June 13, 2012 “Well, I’m looking at the schedule right now, and uhh we’re booked pretty solid for the next two weeks.” “Fuck me…” I cursed under my breath in a momentary bout of frustration that had been building since the syncro first broke down a week and a half earlier.
While at the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous I took some interior pictures of different rigs to give you an idea of how some people are converting their vans into rolling homes. If there is one thing I have learned in my almost 11 years of vandwelling, it is that there is no right or wrong way to convert a van. Some are very elaborate while others are extremely simple and yet they all make their owners equally happy.
This article is about what WE have achieved! The Travel Talk on Twitter is THE biggest weekly travel event on Twitter! A pat on your back! This was only possible, because the Twitter travel community decided to get it there. We've created an event, which is run by the community! We've created a real Social Media Travel Event!

I’ve finally done it! Below is a complete list of everything Nick & I bring with us around the world. This is everything we need to live, travel and work pretty much anywhere on Earth, and it all fits in two Tom Bihn backpacks and one purse. No Mary Poppins magic required. Clothes (Kit) This is a picture of me holding all of my clothes.
I got Betsy back! Who is Betsy? Betsy is my iVan. As in iPhone, and iPad. She’s the go anywhere, do anything Volkswagen Westfalia camper van that we bought back in ’87.
BOSTON (AP) — They say no man is an island, but Michael Richard Smith has been creating his own floating homes in Boston Harbor . The Coast Guard and Boston police are keeping an eye on the unconventional camper who has been tying his canoe to small offshore docks in the city's inner harbor and pitching his tent to sleep at night. The 49-year-old Maine native said Tuesday he's been paddling the waters of metro Boston since October with all his possessions aboard a 14-foot, 40-year-old aluminum canoe he patches with duct tape when necessary. Smith detests the term "homeless" and describes himself as just another "fellow citizen."
There’s plenty of magic left to find in country big enough to hide mountain ranges. Considering Canada is 8000 kilometres (5000 miles) wide, it’s remarkable how many people set out to cross the country from sea-to-sea. With so much ground to pass beneath you, this is one pilgrimage where the journey really is the destination.
Do you know what pity looks like? You know, the look you get when someone realizes that you go without something they view as an absolute necessity. I’ve gotten that look before. Most of my friends are baffled by the fact that my wife and I share a car. We have a crappy, hand-me-down couch that elicits pity.
We arrived in Mexico yesterday and high-tailed it up the coast to Tulum. We kept the taxi driver waiting as we checked into the hotel, he thought we were worried that we wouldn’t get a room, but I only had one thing on my mind: Do you have wifi? (translated from Spanglish) Si! Is it strong enough for Skype? Si!
“What do you do?” We all get asked that common social question. Rarely does one’s job title paint an complete picture of who that person is as a whole. A more accurate question for Trevor Clark would be, “what don’t you do?” Trevor is one of those who does what many people only dream about or believe impossible.
In the morning we were wakened by the border police who told us that we were not allowed to park within 2 Kilometers of the border. We drove 300 miles along this flat monotonous road. The driving standards are terrible and we were nearly pushed off the road by a lorry.
