You may have noticed that some of my photos recently started to include an Airstream? You may have noticed that some include a female from one angle or another? Or how about the two kayaks? Or how about the liberal use of the word “we”?

I am coming out of the closet. This Van-Tramp has company, and it is a girl! How does a van guy get a girl to hang out with him? I am really not sure, but somehow it happened. I’ve been very lucky to say the least. Back in January I met a fellow full-timer – Kerri (@asolojourner). Kerri happened to be one of the first people I followed on Instagram. I have always admired her strength in doing this on her own so I was captivated way back.

I know that van-guys are suppose to be single, alone – drifters if you will if – but if there is one thing I have learned in my travels, you simply do not pass up an opportunity. Be it a drink, a plate of food, or meeting a new person, you just have to grab hold of each as if it could be your last. So, when I had the chance to meet Kerri face to face back in January, I jumped at it, and how happy I am that I did.  I met a beautiful, funny, and smart woman living the very lifestyle I love and we connected big time! We have been hanging out and experiencing the South West together since then.

“We” has had a we-bit more meaning in my blog posts since then.
