As some of you know already, I bought a full size conversion van with a high roof. The van is a 2001 model, and i need to do some work on it, but nothing overwhelming. Some people are doing name calling already and call this innocent van Van-gina, or similar XXX rated names. Kids, what would you expect?
I want to use this van to drive up north late this summer, early fall, and to avoid to much Corona contact possibilities, I plan to sleep, etc. in this van.

I will need to arrive in Rochester, Minnesota to go to some appointments with the Mayo Clinic (their genetic research group wants to take a look at me and try to find out, what kind of mutant I am) on September 20, and will move to the Twin Cities latest on September 25. I plan to hang around there for two more weeks,

If anybody has a driveway or a piece of land on which I can park with my van overnight, it would be great I drive the typical roads (Freeways), one would drive to get from Fort Myers in Florida to Rochester in Minnesota, but if we want to arrange a meeting along my route, I can make little d-tours. I just have to plan accordingly and leave Florida a little earlier. I will drive on I 90/94 just by Madison Wisconsin.

I hope that I can meet as many of you as possible, it is even better than Zoom to have a real face in front of you to become even closer friends.

So, watch out ladies, the Van-gina will be in a neighborhood close to you!

Hugs
Linde

I will make sure that I have minimal contact. Infection control and prevention is my medical speciality , and i can assure you, I will not be one of those that carry any possible infection around. One of my isolation systems is to stay in my van, and have enough supplies with me, to make it up north without needing to stock up. My van can do about 600 miles with one tank filing, and I immagine 3 filling stops along the line, during which I am still isolated from the public. My van is equipped with a porta potti, and I do not need public bathrooms. I will start the trip free of any infectious disease, and will maintain this condition over the entire drive up.

If we can make the stars align properly I'd be up for some gyros with you in Madison when you get that far

I’m always up for getting together, and I live literally 5 minutes off the interstate. That should be directly on your route. So whenever your going to be in the area just let me know and we can visit a while.

And I know that you all can't wait to see pictures of th Van-gina.

Here are a few, and you can see what the Florida sun did to he paint job. That will be done new, and if I can convince Amber to put some murals on the sides and the back, i will be pretty happy. Amber is a pretty good painting artist.
The only defect part was the front of the running board on the drivers side, and I have this repaired already. I still know how to to fiberglass and bondo!
I will remove one of the captain chairs in the inside, and put a sealed porta potty and a handwashing station there.
In the last picture you can see the mood light setup for those romantic nights in the Van-gina, when watching hot and juicy movies on the TV

I'm a detour, but you could park in the lot at my apts.

I'm hoping to be able to catch up with her when she passes by Madison. Happy to have you hitch a ride with us if it works out.

Thanks Moni! Depending on how it goes, it might be that I do a trip along the east coast one of these days, and steal your guys's driveways for a night or two.

If I know far enough ahead when you'll be in Madison, I can be off work and we will drive down. @Maddie if you can get here, you can hitch a ride with us.

Based on my usual work schedule, I'll have a day off during the week of 13th. The week of the 20th would be my golf trip with my brother unless Covid shuts us down.

I would try to arrive during the day of September 19, and leave for Rochester, MN on the 20th or 21st.

That's a Saturday so sure I can make it work.

If my golf trip gets virused I'd be happy to tag along on the 24th just to bum around Madison afterwards.

What is your opinion about this? In Florida, we don't need a front license plate, and I thought I design one for the Van-Gina. What do you think about this plate?
