Hello and welcome to the new blog. Our vision for this blog is to create a place where van campers can share their journeys, tips and more with the rest of the VanTrippin community. If you love camping in your van, stay tuned.

There will be lots of changes to the blog over the next few months as we add new features and refine the site. Thanks for your patience and we look forward to hearing from all of you.
