The Galavan's Profile

About The Galavan


RVillage Member

In A Few Words...

Self employed, grown up Girl Scout

A Little More Detail

I'm a solo woman traveler living in a custom built Sprinter van. I've raised two amazing daughters who are now in their 20s and living on their own. I homeschooled (unschooled) my girls and now it's my time! I sell essential oils and am completely location independent.

My goal is to visit as many national parks/monuments as I can and find all the organic markets and restaurants in my passion for real food on the road.

I'm a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts and tend to be overly considerate (sometimes to my detriment). I've been an Air BnB host and loved meeting people as they stayed at my home. I'm looking forward to meeting hosts along my journey!

Favorite Boondocking Locations

BLM Land!

The Galavan's Pets

No pets. My daughter took her cat with her when she moved out.

The Galavan's Rig

The Galavan is a custom converted Sprinter Van. It's Aqua Green and 22' long. It's considered a Class B and was built out on a new 2015 Freightliner Sprinter (built by Mercedes) - this is the same van that FedEX uses. No slides, no funky decorations (on the outside - just wait 'til you see the inside though - it's a delightful surprise!).

The Galavan's Home Town

I grew up in the Air Force, and my family is from Eastern Washington. I now consider Corvallis, OR to be home.

Skills or Expertise to Share

I've got some pretty decent computer skillz. I love to cook with real, organic ingredients (not much into prepared foods). I know a LOT about alternative health and am happy to share in knowledge. I teach essential oil classes (people seem to think I always smell good as a side benefit of what I do!).

We had fun conversations and the Galavan joined in with our visiting neighbors and friends.

Joined us for "Attitude Adjustment Hour" and dinner. Very Interesting and became "family", quickly.

Be sure and get a tour of the specifically owner designed GALAVAN, professionally built to high standards. You'll be amazed at how perfectly this small amount of space gets everything to work and fit together.

The Galavan is a lovely, pleasant, easy-to-talk with Boondocker. We had a couple of occasions to chat, otherwise she was so quiet we hardly knew she was in our driveway! She is welcome anytime.

Although we regret not being able to meet The Galavan in person, she was great to visit with on the phone, courteous, friendly and grateful for the site for the night. Hoping to catch up with her sometime and recommend The Galavan as a guest!
