how to live, travel and explore the world from your van

Vanabode - Travel Destination Guides for the United States

I wrote nearly all of the following destination guides. They contain personal custom written, first hand information from my wife and I. We camped in these places in our Vanabode (usually free) and so can you. Each location specific guide contains pictures and information on what to do when you get there, what time of year to visit to avoid the crowds, temperature ranges from night to day, expected budget, and safety concerns. We have taken hundreds of trips since 1995 lasting as long as 9 months each. The Vanabode book shows how to do it, and the Big City Wild Country East Coast Road Trip on $20 a Day book is a daily diary style telling of a sample 5 month trip. States below in alphabetical order.
