Central Indiana
Hello fellow Vanners!

I am Xplorer_Loco, 40 years young, married, children, and all that other standard stuff smile

Living since summer 2017 in central Indiana, just NE of Indianapolis, due to our jobs, I was working all over this tiny planet, and then, due to my wife´s job, we were living in Europe for 5 years, prior to moving to Indiana. It was a blast, especially for here, as a CA girl. For me, well, I am Spanish... and born and raised in northern Germany ha!

Early 2017 we got a van, a 1985 Dodge B350, V8 360 5.9L, with original 32k miles on it. But it had been converted, out of factory, to a motorhome. It is a Dodge Xplorer 228, hence my forum name smile It is not tall, as you can see on the picture, but that is because it has a dropped floor on the right side. It is complete and in excellent condition (after fixing it all up, that is). With kitchen, dinette (foldable into a bed), kitchen, full wet bath, rear bed, and lots of storage around. Rooftop AC and 3k inverter is planned. Now, if it had been a 4x4, that would be perfect, but then again, I would go places where I probably shouldn´t hahaha!

Lurking into this forum for some time, finally decided to be part of it.

Lots of questions, lots of interests, and wanting to share with everyone our vanning love!

More to come!
