Retired guy with a Nissan 12-passenger van for travel


Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Retired techie who lived in Minneapolis and Boston before settling in Solana Beach with family at my current address 17+ years ago.

I've taken 4 long road trips since fitting up my Nissan NV van in 2015.

I think van travel will keep getting more popular because of so many "technology tailwinds"...communications, electronics, batteries, solar. Love the bimonthly "Van Life Gathering" Meet-ups in San Diego. Check it out if passing through.

I enjoy schmoozing with van & RV travelers, but I'm not that guy who won't stop yapping and just leave you alone already :-).

Skills & Expertise to Share

I'm super handy fabricating stuff -- wood, plastics, aluminum, coroplast, fabric, etc. I like to chase space efficiency and lightweight solutions.
