How many sunsets will have to sink down low, before we just quit pack our things and go out on the open road?
So after hunting for months we found the perfect van! We had to drive to Tampa FL, but lets say the drive was worth it. With Kelli and I agreeing on a 12k budget for the van we knew it would be difficult after looking at what was out there in our price range.We hit Craigslist gold with this one! 1989 Dodge Fiesta van with 46k original miles 6k dollars. Stay tuned for updates and a full build sheet of the van.
1st offical trip
The 1st official van trip had us headed to the grandparents house in Rutherfordton, NC. It was so nice to be with family and try out the van on a 500 mile trip. They are located just several miles from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock park where Charlie and Pop tried there luck at some trout fishing. Needless to say the views where better to catch than the fish. The van averaged 11mpg on the trip with a bad cat which Charlie quickly replaced when we got home. Only a couple more weeks till we are full time. Stay tuned for more updates
Getting some much needed rest! Van life is hard....
