Was just reminiscing about my old van today. Then I just started thinking about how fuken cool vans actually are, especially to climbers, especially in NA. They seem to be a very important part of our wacked out little subculture. All day I've just been seeing vans everywhere, maybe it's a sign. Anyways. Enough poetic BS- lets see some Vans, I know u lurker dirtbags have been waiting for this one.

The best family trips ever were the ones we took to the desert when my girls were young. I think we lived for a total of a year in our 82 Chev camper van.
Many good trips to Baha, J Tree, Cochise Stronghold, Tucson, Moab, Canyonlands etc. My kids did their first climbs in J Tree.
We sold the van to our mechanic this summer. It owed us nothing.

Make & Model: VW Van Morrison



He was born in 1979 and has the 'Super Viking' interior which was the largest sleeping capacity camping interior ever fitted to the T2 Vans, which is brilliant for the larger parties although our 2 and 3 birth vans may be more spacious for 2 or 3 occupants.
He sleeps two adults in the main van and has 4 single beds in his massive pull out pop top. So, along with our 4 man awning, which can be included in the hire at a small cost he will be able to cater for lots of people!

And... I wish it were mine...

You & me both Ekat!


Funny how vans can take on a personality better than any other vehicle, or inanimate object for that matter. I was cracking up reading wards description of his van. It sounds like a vital part of his family & I believe it!

Edit- Ward again with the dual etendre, I'll pick the song this time!

Y'all are killing me.
I got Outbid on a similar Sportmobile a few months ago. Broke my heart. But I still covet a Sports Mobile and hope this winter some good wheelin and dealin will get me in the driver's seat.
