Off grid artist
« on: March 27, 2015, 10:15:47 AM »
Hi there Im new to the forum but by no means new to Vandog traveller. Ive been following Mikes progress since he started his journey and have to say im impressed with his site photos and stories of his journeys.

I am the off grid artist and this year im taking off in a van to tour Europe with my dog Yuri.
Im looking forward to hearing from other van dwellers and nomadic people and perhaps make a few friends along the way.
Bye for now

Hiya Sam

Good to see you made it here. I like your artwork - very good. Love the plan you've got in mind too. If that is your van on your homepage...I'm almost jealous only I could really do with a Luton van myself.

Happy travels,

Mark

Look forward to seeing how you homelyfy (new word check the O.E.D  ;D ) your van while on the road. A van conversion project is head bang, knuckle scrappingly a challenge while it's parked at home while you do it but doing this while living in it will be interesting to read how you overcome issues with the work and living in it at the same time.

Look on my blog, link below for ideas how to do up your camper van on the cheap. Some of the ideas there might help you. I'm currently writing a book too on the same subject which will be available for sale very soon.
