The Dusty Vagabond Theme Song

My Anthem and Visual Geographic Library of Awesome Places I've Been

I was inspired one day and put together a slide show to one of my favorite songs. I'm happy with the results, and had a lot of fun making it. All of the photos are taken in the U.S. at some of my favorite haunts. I hope this may inspire you to head out and find some awesome places.

You can find this in a sharper full screen version by going to YouTube and Searching: "The Dusty Vagabond Theme Song"

“ ‘Sherpa’ means ‘easterner’ in Tibetan; and the Sherpas who settled in Kumbu about 450 years ago are a peace loving Bhuddist people from the eastern part of the plateau. The are also compulsive travelers; and in Sherpa-country every track is marked with cairns and prayer flags, reminding you that man’s real home is not a house, but of the road, and that life itself is a journey to be walked on foot.” ~Bruce Chatwin- What Am I Doing Here

Hi Rhombus...I just read the Travellerspoint newsletter about your van-living. I don't live in my van all the time, but I do when I'm on long vacations. I have a tip for you. I bought a Luggable Loo, which is essentially a toilet seat with lid that clamps onto a 5-gal. paint bucket. I line it with TWO plastic trashcan liners; that way, the inner one can be twisted shut to prevent odors between uses. I only use it when it's not convenient to leave the van (like a storm, middle of night, etc.). If there is no place to empty it before you have to leave, make sure you secure it (bungees work well) so that there are no spills. You can buy just the seat/lid if you have a 5-gal. bucket already, as I did. I bought mine at WalMart, I think; but they are probably sold at other camping stores or online. Happy wandering!

Thanks Lerar for the tip. No worries, I don't mind getting up in the night, though. Sometimes the stars are out, and I'm glad that I had to get up.

I like Vanners, we're always willing to help a fellow vanner out. World peace through van life!

Probably the tip applies better for us ladies. Do you know of a website geared to vanners? It would be nice to get a few together to drive into Mexico--and farther. I drove there alone last year, but company would be nice.
