Times, They Are A Changing

All good things must come to an end, and it looks like the Stealth Van Dweller is shortly doomed. I received an email from Yahoo yesterday stating they are doing away with their Yahoo Voices network. Though I haven't published anything there for quite some time, this does dramatically affect the material posted on The Stealth Van Dweller.

During the early years, all the material I wrote documenting the construction of the original Stealth Van was published through Associated Content, which was bought out by Yahoo. The buyout, in my mind, was a hostile act as the whole premise of publishing content from free lance writers digressed to being a waste of time in short order.

By the end of the month, all older material I have linked to this website will vanish from view. Basically crippling any attempts to learn from my experiences.

Is this all a bad thing? No... For those who have been following along during recent times, it is apparent I have moved away from life on the road living in a van, either large or small. My current method of travel is a 37' Pace Arrow motorhome that by van standards is a luxury mansion in the way of space and amenities.

Shortly I will be starting a new blog about my travels as I go full time living in my motorhome. I'm hoping to experience many new adventures, see lots of new territory, and meet lots of interesting people along the way.

The spirit of the Stealth Van Dweller lives on, I still must exist and travel on a modest budget and the new website will bring out a whole new line of information aimed at helping those on a fixed or low income enjoy life on the road.

Once I have the website on line, I will provide a link between the two sites so you can transition to the new and improved site but still have access to what will remain of this website.

Thank you all for traveling along with me, I hope you find the new website interesting and informative.
