Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I'm a free lance graphic designer, testing living and working in van to see if it suits me. I can't retire for a few years, but I don't want to wait until then to start my adventures. My goal is to travel, hike, bike ride this wonderful country and work and live out of a van. I'm seeking inspiration in the natural world to work into my paintings. And meeting awesome people along the way.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Im an artist! I paint mostly abstracts, but can draw representational in a pinch. I love bike riding and hiking, so if you ride or hike, we can ride or hike and explore together. Generally 35-40 miles. I like digging in the dirt and gardening. Generally like being outside more than indoors.

Minnix1's Rig

Rig Type: Class B

20 feet long

This is a self contained 2012 Sprinter Van, 20'. I have solar panels so electric isn't necessary from host, although I appreciate it being available if I find I'm low on power. So, if you have it, I probably would want to use it in order to save solar power when electric isn't available. Same goes with water. Not necessary, but nice if you have it. Thank you for your hospitality.

Very short stay 😟

It was nice to meet Minnix1, she only stayed overnite so we didn' t get to chat much, but she did spend a bit of time hanging out on the porch and chatting with Rick. She is certainly welcome back 😊

Interesting and adventurous.

Her stay was brief, but it was great chatting. She is out there doing what most people only dream about!

a true boondocker!

Minnix was a real pleasure to have hosted...she has an unique infectious laugh and was easy to talk with...and was respectful of my property and privacy. She's a guest that will always be welcome.

Minnix1 @ down at the beachfront

We hosted Minnix1 last evening. It was a pleasant time, looking over her ride and sharing stories of all our travel experiences. If she’s coming your way you’ll be happy with hosting her also.
