My first van adventure was supposed to be low key! after driving in heavy rain with every noise leading me to believe my van is broken, i finally make it to an la fitness where i can work out my tired legs and shower. after helicoptering with all the geysers in the locker room i walked over to the grocery store to pick up some breakfast. on my way out i see a team of first responders surrounding a homeless man who has been passed out on this electric cart for a while. food scattered inside the basket.
i look up a good place to eat and pull into uncle sams. i am welcomed with a “no parking” sign right where i parked and an unmarked door. i enter and the warmth of loneliness and anger wafts over me. i have entered a biker bar. i put on my asshole face and walk to the bar. grabbing a menu from the stack; i order a beer and a burger. sit in the corner and become one of the 8 audience members listening to the a pretty good local band. i’m now sleeping in a parking lot, listening to the cars turn on and leave. i need to p*e but not ready to give away my position. #spanaway #washington #roadtrip #roadwarrior #vanlife #nomad #shower #bikerbar #gym #beer #stealth
