After four years on the road, Stevie, Tree, and Soleil have sold the Sprinter and are returning to the States. Their Sprinter has been their home through sixteen countries as they've wandered South America in search of adventure, meeting new friends, adopting new pets, getting married, and even having a baby. Their writings and imagery have been an inspiration to fellow travelers around the world. It’s true. We’re leaving South America. Tickets are bought. The van is gone.

Jerome Jamboree XXIV

We set off from the safety of Prescott early in the morning to brave the steep, winding tarmac of Highway 89A over Mingus Mountain. The tantrum throwing, oil dripping Vanagon we've affectionately come to know as "Lana" was being uncharacteristically well behaved as we made the climb, caffeinated elixirs in hand (for lack of cup holders), toward Jerome, Arizona. Our destination: the 24th Jerome Jamboree put on by the folks at the Arizona Bus Club and hundreds of fellow Vdub aficionados. Some of our… read more »

Certified by the International 4wd Trainer Association, Nena and… read more »
