Meet your host, Todd

Member since 2019

Hello fellow Campers! I have been an avid traveler for nearly 8 years now, having backpacked across South America and Europe, Cycle toured along the European countryside and most recently lived in a Self Converted Bus for nearly a year. I like the idea of having off-grid vehicles and will continue to Build my Vans with the Adventurer in mind. I hope you enjoy your vacation experience with my Van(s) and get to experience the Canadian Rockies a very unique way.
