What? He’s moving the blog?!?!?!

I’ve decided to take “the road less traveled by” and author a different blog.  It will become a resource, an “unmanned outpost” of sorts to serve the stealthy camping and vandwelling community – something I’ve got a little background doing.

There is also a desire for privacy.  Recent events have shown that too much of this life has been devoted to blogging, using Facebook, etc.  It is best to dedicate one’s talents appropriately.  I hope the many friends made over the last five years will check out the new page and bookmark it.

The new blog will be called Stealthy AdVANtage Camping and the URL is

This spring if you see a white van with a solar panel lurking around NE Iowa, say hi!

As always, safe and happy travels… and “Live long and prosper!”

About VanTrekker

I am a former vandweller in Eastern Iowa who, for several years (off and on), lived in a 2007 Chevy cargo van. I still travel around Iowa with my tortoise shell cat, Jennifer Stefanie. Our favorite place to explore is the Country Heritage Community, the four far northeastern counties of Iowa (Clayton, Winneshiek, Allamakee, and Fayette). Ride along as we fish in pristine trout streams, enjoy fine home cooked camping meals, and meet new people. It's all possible on a shoestring budget. Happy travels always! --- Brad, the "Van Trekker"

      Thanks Jo! You just warmed my tired heart! I’m going to still continue to fish and such but will try to focus more on some cool places to stealth camp such as at Casinos, Walmart, gas stations, etc. It will be kind of fun. 🙂
