Her “paper name” is Camper Van Beethoven, because I *just* got their name.

I’m in SoCal in the Inland Empire. I’m looking to urban boondock in the Bay Area, starting in the fall. Other than safe parking, I need access to an indoor pool with a deep end. Any ideas?

I’m starting out with dispersed and paid camping in SoCal, just to get used to the rig and seeing what needs repaired before I’m far from my mechanic.

My wife and I inherited our camper from my father who was a proud Tin Can Sailor. He had a bunch of things in the coach that were nautical themed so we are continuing with that by adding pirate curtains and our little touches as a tribute to my father. We call it our Land Yacht.

Mine is Sea Shanty—because we live at the beach.

Keep the thread going!!
Picked mine up from my son a couple of years ago... 46K on the clock :D
He'd already christened it "Burt". We liked the name, so it stuck.

Well... Originally I was referring to the van as my "Millennial Falcon", hence my username... but then... the great state of Florida issued me a license plate with four random letters/numbers that look like a word, and well... now nobody lets me refer to my house as anything except for "The BL0B"

The Turtle, but the plate is TOURTLE, and with a few GD stickers on there we get asked if we toured with the band. Alas, no.
