Meet Elizabeth “VanGrrrl” Dickerson, AKA Van Grrrl, a 38 year old single gal living in a 1972 Dodge camper van in the Seattle Washington area.
After many years of dreaming about moving to the west coast from Richmond, VA, Elizabeth quit her job of 12.5 years, sold her condo, packed up and moved west in 2012, sight unseen with no job or place to live lined up.
After finding a job an a home in Washington State, in 2014 she nearly lost both again. That’s when the plan for van life took root. The idea had so many layers. A place to live, bought and paid for; it would be a simpler life with minimal possessions and debt and it offered the ability to travel near and far. Elizabeth’s current travels are more near than far. She urban camps and parks at friends’ houses north of Seattle. This keeps her close to her loyal housekeeping clients and her 22 year old son while he finishes school and ventures into adulthood.
