  1. I loved reading your post. I’m just starting out and all the information you give is very helpful. I’m shopping for my van now. My one fear (well there are many) is that I’ll get bored or terribly lonely at night. I think if I had a job or something to sink my teeth into a bit, I’d be much better off. I was kind of a workaholic when I had a career so I do “work” much better than hobbies. I’m weird…what can I say? I’m older and retired and hubby passed away two years ago. Any additional information about working from my van, websites, etc., would be great. I was in construction and facility management. Not sure what skills I would have that can be parlayed to working on the road. from my van.Thanks a bunch and God bless!!
