    Hello From Northern California

    Hi all, my name is Troubie and I'm a former west coast car camper. Currently I'm stuck in Sacramento on my way to a college degree. Hoping to gain some wisdom from everybody here and learn about different places and ways to travel before heading back out there. I pretty much stuck to Cali...

    Do you recommend traveling with or without a vehicle?

    Hey, Y'all! My name's Bats. I wrote out this post on here before, but accidentally deleted it instead of posting it. Hopefully, things will go better this time :) So I'm finishing up my last month or so of high school, and I want to hit the road afterwards. At this point I'm not sure how soon...

I can't get a whole lot out of my current car since it's a rebuilt title with problems. I've been saving up and I would like to spend between 5 -10 grand on a reliable van that will...

    Getting A Pass Through Boot For Truck + Camper Shell

    Hey folks! So I've been on the road for a couple of weeks and am currently planning to pass the time in one(ish) spot for awhile. I've got a GMC Sierra with a camper shell on the back and currently there's no way to pass through from the cab of the truck into the camper shell, so I'm trying to...
