It’s officially the first day of summer, and soon, my child will be moving home, I’ll be doing the fatherly thing, and making sure I keep a roof over his head and food in his belly, all the while trying to get the van set up.

I have been thinking about this over the past few days, and I’m curious about what you think…

My van is old, but comfortable to one person fulltime, or a couple for camping. If I do a few of the updates, and try to sell it, in order to try and upgrade to something a bit larger like this. Would it be something feasible? A young couple who wants to go camping more often would welcome a cheaper van that is capable of keeping them out camping the entire weekend, while keeping them warm and dry on those days and nights that the sky unexpectedly opens up.

There have been some suggestions that others have home schooled their children while on the road. I want to be able to see more of this beautiful country I am in. Homeschooling him could be a good idea, and since he seems to be a dealbreaker for every woman out there except one with 4 kids of her own (One a year younger than my ex-girlfriend…), who is outside of my age range, I’m pretty much going to be a single father for good so why worry about trying to find that happiness in an intimate love which would be impossible anyways with a kid in the van.

Having a look online for used ones shows tonnes in the states, and not much up here in Canada. So it’s going to be interesting trying to find something. I may be taking on a second job soon in order to dump every penny made from it into a downpayment on a newer van. I guess I’ll have to wait and see what the Fates have in store.
