About Us & Our Van

April 11, 2017

We are a couple from the Pacific Northwest currently travelling the US in a 2000 Chinook Premiere.
If you don't already know us, Dan is a software developer and private pilot, Rosie is a painter and comics artist. See her work here.

In 2015 we decided (after a short conversation in a hot tub) that it seemed like a good idea to quit working for a while and travel around in an RV. Perhaps surprisingly, this idea stuck.

Departing from North Bend, WA, we hope to be on the road for a year visiting friends and family, exploring National Parks and generally going wherever the good weather is.

Our blog name is taken from a song sung by Bilbo Baggins in Lord of the Rings:

"For still there are so many things that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green."

OUR RIG:

We purchased our Chinook off of craigslist in August 2016 with 85k miles. It has a stove, microwave, fridge/freezer and sink for the kitchen, a foldout bed, tiny bathroom, and dining table with benches. It was ready to go for the most part but we've made some changes and modifications.

Work we had done:
- Solar panels from AM Solar in Springfield, OR
- Stereo from Ballard Custom Audio
- 4 new rear tires from Les Schwab

Work we've done ourselves:
- Installed speakers in main cabin
- Updated showerhead
- Replaced all lights with LEDS
- Installed two new fans on roof
- Re-sealed all rooftop joints and screws
- Removed TV and VCR, built and installed shelf and drawer
- Replaced 5 back lights above door
- Built and installed cabinet in place of spice rack
- Replaced exterior components and re-sealed
- New A/C unit
- New toilet
