Jumping into #vanlife with a 2000 Safari

Introduce Yourself…

Hello and greetings all, my name is Lance and I am already a fan of this great online community of adventurers! I purchased a 2000 GMC Safari (Astro) van in December 2020. The purpose was to return northward from the doldrums of Floriduh . . . with all my belongings and be able to rough it on the road until I could get settled. In the last six months I have put about $15k into this van, you wouldn’t know it by looking at it. I still need to do the interior which i stripped myself - the 1500 watt sound system is in - that was key! I have many questions with regard to getting after market parts for this vehicle such as a rear door spare tire carrier, dash bezel, ABS module, etc - everything is a massive expense but I intend on keeping it 'til the doors fall off! I would also be interested in any meet-up’s to gather with like minded van-life peeps! I am in central PA and will travel anywhere. Thank you for reading and please feel free to say hi / introduce yourself!


Greetings & Welcome!

I’m in S. Florida for the summer myself.

We’ll be looking forward to your build and adventures.
