Hello everyone, my name is Rydel and I am currently researching/preparing for my journey into Vanlife!
Like everyone else looking to join this lifestyle for the first time, I am doing a ton of research. I’ve found a ton of great resources, blogs, and more. But one thing I haven’t found and would be very interested in is a “travel group” kind of situation. Something like a few Vanlifers meeting up and following a travel itinerary together for X amount of time, or even long term groups that travel together I guess.
I’m interested in Boondocking, going out to National Forests and BLM lands to enjoy the outdoors. Traveling between those areas with a 3-6 month “rotational” plan is ideally my goal right now. However, I am traveling alone and the security/safety concerns are my biggest issue at the moment. I
Everything from “2 legged pests”, as I saw Van_Dweller mention in another post, to animal attacks or injuries sustained while hiking, possibly even vehicle or equipment issues. It seems like traveling in a group could be beneficial, especially since 2 is 1, and 1 is none. Security concerns aside, some community can also be nice at times.
But that is the only thing I haven’t been able to find. Does anyone know of such groups, or mediums for finding groups like that?
(I’m in the US, a detail I just realized is worth mentioning, haha.)
