I love to explore new areas

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I am five months new to van life. I made the decision to live this way to have experiences, traveling, seeing places, meeting people, and also to share adventures with my grandchildren. Life is about being outdoors, learning from nature, living life!
My job in the public school environment allows me to have summers to go, explore and discover.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am a seasoned parent and now loving being a grandparent to three granddaughters. I work in a public school environment which allows me plenty of summer time off, as well as holiday times. In the winter, I am a part time ski instructor, which fits nicely into my school job. I love to bike ride, hike, discover amazing spots in nature. My favorite trip so far was a four day trek into Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon. It was my dream to return there after a two week river trip down the Colorado River in 2001 when we were introduced to the beauty of Havasu Canyon. I have taught dance (tap, hip hop, jazz) for 30 years to ages 3-adult and am taking a break from having to think about choreography :-) I guess education has been in my world for a long time. I have a gift with children, since I find myself in their world a lot, and I love it.

VanGo_BB's Pets

No pets, but I do pet/house sitting which allows me to get my 'pet fix' :-) I love dogs of all sizes, and cats.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I am new to boondocking, but I have had some great off road camp spots, and some campsites that have been incredible in the beauty around me and the people I've met.

Great boondocker!

Vango_BB was so sweet and kind. My kids didn't quite understand "van life" but she gave us a tour of her van, which was fascinating for all of us. We enjoyed hosting her. Great first time experience for us. Thank you ☺️

Compact and Kind

VanGo_BB was great to have for an evening. She arrived after a long drive, visited, took a walk and was hopefully well rested for her next day of miles. Come again anytime.

Wonderfully Pleasant Guest

We enjoyed messaging with each other about things to do and places to go. In person we were able to learn from each other's van build-outs. We very much enjoyed meeting up and spending time together. We would happily host this new friend again if she ever returns to our area.

Wonderful guest!

We really enjoyed getting to know VanGo_BB! She was quiet and respectful of our property and space. She was gracious in letting us look over her rig and explained the why and how of her choices. The information was valuable as we too are exploring a vehicle modification for camping and traveling.
She is welcome to visit again anytime she is coming through our way!

Great Guest! Welcome back anytime!

She may be new to Boondockers welcome, but she already knows how to be a perfect guest. She communicated her arrival clearly, and we enjoyed pleasant conversations in the evening.
We would gladly host her again.
