WOMEN ONLY: Howdy nomadic sisters!!
#31
Solo woman, Vandweller, southeast. There are several women's vandwelling groups on FB besides the raunchy one. Problem with gatherings is it's like herding cats. If you have a location, pick a date, announce it in as many places as you can and see who shows up.

Thanks for posting I'm in the northeast as well. I found this group pretty recently and just beginning this journey and don't have my van set up yet. In the process of collecting repurposed materials and hopefully I will get to do some stealth camping / boondocking before the end of the summer! Would love to hear where you've been in the northeast or ADK's and hope it's going well for you!

So sorry it's taken so long to get back to this! I'm out of internet and cell range most of the time up here where I am in the Adirondacks. I've been camping on the Route 30 corridor, from the Saranac area down to the Long lake area. It take me a bit to get on my feet, I'm also dealing with a disability that slows me down, but I'm doing it! I'm in the groove now and really starting to gain some confidence and have some fun. 

Good luck with your van, I hope you've been able to take it out for some camping!

I am full time in a minivan for the last two years. I just discovered this forum. This is so much better than Facebook!
I'm going to be at the RTR and look forward to meeting you all then.

Hi Tigerlilly - Thanks for writing! 

I'm doubtful that I can make it to the RTR in January but I so wish I could!! It's 3000 miles for me...I agree that traveling with a group sounds like a great idea!! I'm hopeful that by next year I can make it happen too : ) 

Agree on the alone time having that balance is a must for me as well!!!

Hi Gypsy Clipper! 

Thanks for your note sorry I'm seeing it so late. What kind of minivan do you have? I have a 2006 Caravan. Just in the process of collecting repurposed materials to make it a camper. Do you have pictures of your build? I'd love to see how your set up and hear about your experiences if you have a blog or anything? 

I don't think I can make it to the RTR this year...3000 miles away and too many hurdles to overcome before Januaary : ( ....although I'm determined I will make it next year!!

Howdy CoachOnTheRoad! 

NP I'm just getting back to this forum after a couple weeks. That sounds great!! Would love to hear more about your journey in the ADK's....Are you blogging or youtube or anything? Perhaps down the road you could provide some suggestions or insight's....What kind of van do you have? 

HOpe you continue to have a safe journey and have a blast!!

I'm intrigued by a women-only gathering.  Maybe a pre-RTR or post-RTR in January 2018?  (Sorry, not on the east coast Sparrow.)  If there's interest, I'll do some organization for it." 

Hi Suanne, 

Thank you for writing and for your ideas! It gives me lots of hope that there are likeminded women out here who want to support and empower each other. It's doubtful that I can make it to the RTR this year (3000 miles for me) but I hope if you do the women's RTR that it will become an annual gathering? 

Thanks for the link to your blog Suanne I will definitely check it out and hope to stay in touch!

Hi Waldenbound! 

I agree it would be great to meet up with other women nomads! Check out Suanne's post on this thread she's facilitated women's groups at the RTR and may be interested in making it more formal if I understand her post correctly. 

Sorry to hear about your isolation I can really relate. There is definitely a light waiting and I hope you continue to move toward it!! Perhaps the support of other nomad women would be helpful? I wish you the best in your journey and keep on truckin and hoping things get better for you as you go!!

I also wondered if there are women from the northeast or east coast? Would be great to connect with other women with interest and insight in the nomadic lifestyle....

Lots and lots of questions and trying to maintain hope that I can make this happen  Smile

Sparrow, 
I'm on the east coast for the next 3 months for work living in a small class C. It is pretty hard finding free areas to stay here, don't you think? 
If you hear of any gatherings let me know.

Hi Lmwillie, 
Yeah it seems the east coast does not have the wide open spaces where vandwellers and rv'ers congregate as does the southwest or west coast. I don't have my van ready yet but have done some limited research for places in the east. I does seem that free area's tend to be more sparse and remote which then has it's risk factors for women traveling alone IMHO. 

There may be a small gathering on the east coast but it hasn't been confirmed yet. When I find out more I will let you know. I'd be interested to hear your experience while your in the east and hope it goes well for you!
