While I Should be Packing…..


Pipedreams 🙂

While I should be packing for our upcoming trip, I am still obsessively drawing DIY solo camper van plans!

I promise to buckle down and live in the real world tomorrow!  🙂

    Perhaps that’s your calling. Van vs Casita?

    • For solo camping, I’d definitely prefer a van. For the two of us, Ron and I love the Casita.

      Sometimes a girl just wants to run away from home for a couple of days! 🙂

  2. I can always find something else to do when the packing is upon me!

    Looking forward to following your new adventure…..we’ve stayed at the COE last winter while heading toward Fort Pickens…everything looked new!

    Have lots of fun!!!!!

    • Lynne, Carla sent me a photo of the view from her site. It is gorgeous!

      Can’t wait to get there! Am making good progress on the packing now.

      I am expecting camping with them to be wonderful! 🙂

  3. Love the plans. Even your blueprints are stylish. If you decide to move forward, let me know. I have some good resources for you. But again, you have such a great prototype with your sister’s van.

    • Thanks so much, Kim. But I’m on hold until I get the roof paid off. I’ve got superb credit but don’t want to bite off more than I can chew. 🙂

  4. With several of you packing for, or already traveling, you’re pushing me to finish up the drain so I can steal a few days for boondocking. Thanks! BTW, love your van design. It would make a good tug for the Casita, too.

    • It would make a great tug, wouldn’t it, John? The best of both worlds… a good tug for the Casita and a little run-away for me now and then!

      I love your new sink. Wish I had room for something like that in my Casita!

    You van plan looks GREAT…noticed below the blueprint it says “pipedreams”…reminds me of a quote…”Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will coming smiling through”…..Safe travels on your and Ron’s upcoming trip….Horst sends

    • Well, whether I ever actually do the van or not, it sure is entertaining drawing plans. Sometimes I think that is reward enough. If I got the van, after the new wore off, I would be drawing up plans for something else.

      Like tiny houses. http://tinyhouseswoon.com/ 😀

      Thanks for the good wishes. We can’t wait to hit the road!

  7. Dreaming can be a survival tool your know right!
    I sure hope I can get things done tomorrow so I can head out Tues.

    • Dreaming is definitely a survival tool when you feel you are stuck somewhere and that you can’t make anything happen!

      Good luck on heading out Tuesday, Jo. 🙂
