Meet Dharma, a 1972 VW Type II van/bus/microbus/kombi/combi/camper/casa movil/casa rodante! I met her in an online search at eBay.com in November 2010 after losing a sailboat, my home after 11 years in the navy, to some rocks in Mexico. You might say that Dharma caught me on the rebound. I prefer to think that she has impeccable timing!
I'm Dave. I like getting lost and I choose not to work the 9-5 for the foreseeable future.
The most common question I am asked is: "Andas solo?" "Are you traveling alone?"
The answer: Yes and no. If you're going to rob me or give me a hard time, then there are five big and angry guys in the back of the van ready to stop you. :) Often I'll meet new friends and we'll travel in Dharma for a while but I'm a slow traveler and have no set schedule while most of the world has to get to next next destination in a hurry.
I find that rushing toward anything leads to most of my difficulties in traveling. Not knowing or planning for individual country vehicle permit periods is probably my number 1 offense.
