Hi, I am Pattie Gilbert

Hello Fellow travel bugs, My name is Pattie, #thevanlord. I was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. In 2006, I moved to Pacifica, CA with 2 suitcases. Travel is my passion. I had an opportunity to travel extensively in Asia, Europe, North America and my one of forever favorite places in the World, The islands of Hawaii. But Wait !! France is one of the top 5 particularly, South of France and Paris. I have seen many parts of the world. I can proudly say I am so grateful to be able to call "California" home. 3 years ago, I moved to Santa Cruz Mountains, CA. That was when my life changed forever. Now, I live in gorgeous Redwoods and right under the old Redwood Trees. The most famous surfing town in the world, Santa Cruz, California is within 15 minute ride. How could life get any better? Well Duh !!, owning a CAMPER VAN. With my #GOAL_DIGGER THE VAN and #Joythevan I could be sleeping on the edge on the Pacific coastline at any time. Anywhere I can park now is my backyard. I love to listen to the waves, watch gnarly sunset and catch a glimpse of those shooting stars. I invite you to experience these amazing places with me. Let's hit the road.

Pattie is the best! Her communication skills and punctuality are everything you desire in van host. Her van is amazing and all the amenities added were both useful and adorable. I would 100% rent from her again and recommend her highly.

#GOALdigger the van was a great experience for me. As a traveling artist, my goal was to be close to the ocean in my time with the van in order to paint. this experience allowed for just that. The owner was responsive and helpful in setting up the rental. The van was equipped just right with sleeping, cooking, and driving accommodations. @jeffaevans

The Goal Digger was the perfect little rig for our coastal adventure. Patti was delightful to work with and available to us every step of the way. The van was super clean, equipped with all that we needed, easy to drive and super comfortable to hang out and sleep in. It’s basic (we are too!) with a versatile floor plan. Loved that we had the option of turning the bes space into a little lounge ar…

We rented Pattie’s gorgeous Goal_Digger for Valentine’s weekend for some fun exploring in our local community and to try van life on for size. This is the best antidote for quarantine fatigue and we love the freedom of being able to quickly pack up and Go. Goal_Digger is immaculately clean, comfortable and easy to drive. Pattie is a wonderful host and we highly recommend her van to anyone seeking a lovely way to find adventure in style and comfort.
