My name is Taylor and I'm looking for a place to park a sprinter van or possibly a 12'(or less) box truck over the summer. I grew up on the island of Kauai and recently moved to Corvallis to finish my degree in Fisheries and Wildlife. I recently was offered a paid internship through the ODFW and will need to move to Central Point for the summer. Once I graduate, my work will most likely be seasonal and I will have to travel often. This is what lead me to the idea of building an off-grid camper van. That and being a broke student.
A little about me:
I grew up on Kauai with a love for nature and the outdoors. I spent my time riding horses, fishing, hunting, and hiking. My professional background ranges from 6 years as a diesel mechanic in the Navy, ranch work, horseback guiding, and serving gigs while attending school. I enjoy growing and harvesting food and the communities that form around this process. I have a wonderful girlfriend who unfortunately will be staying in Corvallis for her work, so I will most likely be meeting her somewhere half way on the weekends for some van camping.
While I will have the option to boondock and stay in Public Land spots for up to two weeks, I want to make sure I have a secure place to park at night so that I can focus on my internship and build my reputation. I will most likely not have time for any partial work-trade due to my work hours so paying a fair rental price would be ideal. Also, I will not need to use any utilities, just a place to park at night. I plan on filling and dumping water at designated RV campground on the weekends.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I look forward to speaking with you.
