I love traveling and exploring in my GMC Savana which I bought and camperized after years & years of caregiving for firstly my late mother, then my husband and lastly my father.
I wanted to be able to travel, along with my older cat, it a way that I felt was safe and that did not advertise the fact that I am actually traveling in a B class motorhome. From the outside, in most ways, it looks like a work vehicle but inside I am save and cozy without attracting unwanted attention. I have had great fun in planning and executing the work in making it into a fully self contained unit for my way of traveling and camping.
My maiden voyage was down along the coast of Oregon and Northern California and then over to Arizona to boondock in the desert. I had so much fun traveling along part of the old Route 66 on my way to see the Grand Canyon before heading back home to British Columbia. What an amazing adventure!
I am great at problem solving and 'thinking outside the box". I love to create, invent or fix things and I usually bring some tools with me. My late husband & I renovated two houses so have learned many skills which proved extremely useful in fixing up my rig.
I am also a long time sewer and quilter. Using those skills, I have custom made snap in bug screens for the back and sliding side door areas of my rig. I even made snap in screens for the front door windows so I can put my windows down without having bugs fly in!
Yes, I have an older Devon Rex cat named Cami. She is fully trained as an indoor only cat. I can leave my van door open and she ventures out no further than the step - even when squirrels or birds pass by! She has proved to be a good traveling companion.
BLM land in Arizona. National forest south of the Grand Canyon.
I live in the Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada in a city called Burnaby.
My rig is a white 2010 GMC Savana extended one ton that I have camperized. It has inspected, approved and designated by my provincial vehicle insurance agency (ICBC - Insurance Corporation of British Columbia) as being a B Class motorhome. My rig is completely self contained. Please note that photos & descriptions of my rig have been submitted to Boondockers Welcome and it has been pre-approved as being self contained by Carrie Andress, Community Support Specialist of Boondockers Welcome as of November 7, 2019.
She feels like "home"
From the moment we met it felt like I'd known her for years!
I was tickled that I was able to persuade her to stay with me for 2 nights instead of her scheduled 1 night.
We did laundry, talked over many cups of coffee, gave each other tours of our RV rigs and shared a wonderful antelope loin dinner by Lucy Light.
I'd love it if she could stay longer and made it clear that, she and her sweet kitty, will always be welcome.
Hate to see her go but, we have each others contact info.
I had just got home fromhaving a procedure at Stanford University Hospital, I told her that I probably wouldn't be good company but, we hit it off from the start.
Looking forward to many more visits.
Gotta get my passport so I can hook up my TrailManor and go visit her!
Love ya lady, see you again, soon!!!
I did a video tour of her van build.

Sad that she only stayed one night - wish she would have stayed longer. Welcome back anytime.
A pleasant visit with Mother Earthship and her Guardian cat. A nice pair and the cat didn’t even annoy, bother, or lord it over our dogs. Hardly noticeable in her stealth camper and hopefully invisible to all the predators in our mad mad world where troubles abound. We would welcome them back anytime they need a space and be happy to provide them a few garden delights for their boondocking adventures.
