In my research for this trip, I’ve come across some great websites, apps, clubs and vendors. Here are some of my faves:

Airbnb This trip is made possible by Airbnb. Travel anywhere in the world and find a couch, room, apartment, entire home, tree house, boat, yurt, geodesic dome… to stay on/in! Several months ago, I posted my property on this site and within days, I had packed six 20 gallon bins of my crap into storage and the rest to Goodwill. The place is furnished and complete with reading and music library. I’ve had the most wonderful experiences meeting people from all over the world through this site and I’m making money while I’m away. Check out Airbnb and never stay in a hotel again!

If traveling to Boston, check out my listing

Passport America – Great site – LOVE the iphone app. Find campgrounds all over the US, by name, city, state, popularity…

Truckster for iphone – My FAVORITE app. It gives listings of all truck stops, rest stops and Walmarts by state, rte and highway. Each stop has a list of ammenities (parking, shower, laundry, lounge) and even has notes from travelers who have been before.

AllStays – my NEW FAVORITE app. The filters for campgrounds and overnight parking are too numerous to list. The most thorough camping app I’ve found yet!

Tin Can Tourists – My girlfriend got us a year membership to this super cool club.

Tin Can Tourists is an all make and model vintage trailer and motor coach club. Our goal is to promote and preserve vintage trailers and motor coaches through gatherings and information exchange.

I can’t wait for the first rally!

Northern Tool + Equipment A fantastic catalog of just about anything a handyman could possibly yearn for. I will be outfitting Taco with items purchased from Northern Tool, Amazon and Ebay. Taco will be running on solar power as much as possible. Panels and batteries of any shape and size may be purchased through these sites and you can be sure to pick the right ones with the aid of customer reviews. The wish list is ever growing as I delve into restoration…

I’ll be adding more links as I discover them –
