OK the title doesn't actually describe me, but it's my strongest, earliest memory of the many road-trips we took when I was a kid...one of the three of us kids, constantly asking my amazingly patient parents..."Are we there yet?"
I've been a lover of camping and of road trips ever since I can remember, but I got seriously hooked on the idea of boondocking a few years back when I got a Honda Element. I call it my Micro motor home and I gotta say, it is awesome. I don't need or want a big huge rig. I don't want the stress of maneuvering and parking a big rig. Kudos to those of you who do it. It stresses me out just thinking about it. I like to be able to park in a regular parking lot, in a regular spot. And sometimes I like to pull in somewhere and catch some sleep relatively unnoticed. But boy would it be nice to have an indoor kitchen for when it's raining and such, and man sometimes it would be sweet to have a bathroom on board, and so, duh...a class B Van is a perfect fit for me! I shopped around for a month or two and finally got myself an older model RoadTrek in April of 2018 and have been treking and boondocking pretty regularly ever since! My kids and I used the Road Trek (I call her Sweet Pee) as base camp for a 5 week off grid adventure in Southwest Montana this summer and I'm currently on a cross country trip, having delivered my son to the East Coast to play hockey. I'm hanging in the New England area to watch him play for a bit and then will eventually make my way back West.
I work a regular full time job but that doesn't hamper my camper lifestyle since its an online gig.
Since I work online, I'm always on the lookout for a cool coffee shop or bookstore (with free wifi) to call my office for a day. I am also a sucker for locally sourced, organically grown food. I will drive miles out of my way for a good farmers market. Missoula, Montana has one of the best I've ever found, by the way. Definitely worth checking out if you are ever in the area in the summer.
When I'm not traveling, I call either Montana or Arizona home, depending on the time of year.

Despite rainy and humid conditions, WynB was the perfect guest! Would welcome her again!
I cannot say much about WynB's stay because I wasn't home at the time. She was very prompt with communication and showed up when she said she would. I am glad I was able to help her. Wyn is welcome to stay any time she is in the area.
WynB was very pleasant and quiet. We had very good communication with her. Although she was new to our site, she is clearly a well-seasoned Boondocker. She is a true nature lover. We would gladly welcome her back, as well as other guests like her.
Due to scheduling we only caught up with text and email but Wyn was polite, considerate of the parking and no trouble at all. Her rig fit perfectly in our drive and she was fully self-sufficient.
Great guest, lovely professional woman in a Roadtrek. She came to see her son play hockey in New Jersey and commuted an hour from my place to the rink. Came and went quiet as a mouse. I hope we cross paths again!
