Minivan Camping Across America with my dog | Part 1

Minivan Camping Across America with my dog | Part 1

In September 2021, I drove across America alone with my dog from New Jersey to Washington in my DIY Toyota Sienna Minivan Camper. We spent 29 days (7,545 miles) on the road. We have no fixed plans of how long and where to stay overnights. Our main goal is to visit some of the most beautiful and EPIC landscape of Wyoming, Montana and Washington. Finding overnight stay was part of the adventure.

See link below for the DIY Minivan Camper I used in this trip.

    Oh, your dog is so cute! What a wonderful companion

    Thank you for your video. Great inspiration. Wondering how it goes with having to leave your dog in the van whenever he canโ€™t come along somewhere youโ€™re going?

    @vinnyandrocky Looks like a GREAT trip. What camera do you use for dashcam? What editing software do you use? I went on a 100 day road trip last year and only used my cellphone camera and a couple small videos.

    Itโ€™s not the things we do that we regret but the things we donโ€™t do that we regret! Looked like a great time! Happy travels

    Thank you for sharing. It is inspiring. I am planning similar trip with stops in Utah and South Dakota to visit Rushmore park. Great to visit such variety of places without needing a passport. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your quote for Douglas Adams is wrong. "I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.โ€

    Thank you for reminding me where I intend to be. When I saw those mountains! I got tears in my eyes. I’ve visited many times, but they always call me to return. They’re so majestic, grand, absolute, natural beauty right before your eyes. Thank you for inspiring me.
