From the beginning

Today, I begin to write this blog. I haven't done any writing or composition, since high school, so please be patient with me.

The theme behind this blog is to share information, thoughts and concerns, about vandwelling in the urban landscape. You may be employed or not, and you may be in the city or burbs or out in the countryside. Regardless, I hope you will find help here to assist you on your way.

For myself, vandwelling has been a lifestyle I have enjoyed for many years, on and off. I had an VW van (aka Waldo, the Magic Bus), but now I utilize an Ford Aerostar (aka 'Aero'). My reasons for vandwelling are varied, from financial, to convenience, to freedom, to travel or move, to experience the country at large. Because I spend the majority of time in urban areas, I stealth vandwell. I also work full-time, and save substantial money because I don't pay rent or mortgage payments.

Another two themes for my lifestyle are voluntary simplicity and my carbon footprint. I believe that vandwelling begins to allow me to personally address these two themes. I look forward to sharing my thoughts, methods and experiences with everyone, and learning from yours.
