Excited to do a three month USA roadtrip this summer!

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Build my own teardrop trailer and about to embark on a three month roadtrip across the US. Plan to make a big counterclockwise circle starting in PA and will hopefully be staying with friends/boondockers/campgrounds most of the time.
Since I have a mini cooper as my primary vehicle, I build, using plans and a kit from Chesapeake Light Craft, a wooden teardrop trailer where my traveling companion and I can sleep and that also has a counter kitchen space. Mostly running battery powered, I won't have my own bathroom so would be great if you agree to host me, if you would be so kind as to allow the use of your bathroom.

I'm really excited to discover more about this great country, especially since I just became a citizen last year after living here since '99 on a greencard. I've lived most my life in PA and NJ and live being outdoors and meeting enw people.

Skills & Expertise to Share

What I've learned about woodworking and a small electrical setup from my teardrop trailer build, I can share. Also, good with computers and social media (what millennial isn't). Play the trumpet and know German, Slovak, and Czech (not sure how transferable those skills are).

No pets (sadly).

Favorite Boondocking Locations

Haven't boondocked before! Gone backpacking which can be considered boondocking without a vehicle in Harriman State Park in NY.

mini_and_me's Hometown

Ambler, PA but currently live outside of Newark NJ.

A pleasure to meet and learn a little more about the journey

mini_and_me stop by for a short visit and was a pleasure to host. Interesting journey and even more of an interesting camper they travel in. We welcome them back if they visit our area again.😀

Amazing

What an amazing young lady! Built the coolest teardrop trailer. Can't wait for her and her sister to come back and spend some more time. Good luck on your trip and have a wonderful journey.
