    Granny moves from nursing home to camper van

    You go granny! WOW, her kids didn't agree with her decision. Shocking.

    [COLOR=rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.99)]79-year-old Joan Turcotte motto is this: “If you rest, you rust.” That’s why she’s kicking up her heels instead of kicking the bucket, ready to leave senior housing in New Hampshire for her new Ford transit camper.
    [/COLOR][COLOR=rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.99)]“A couple years ago I moved into a senior citizens complex and I realized I need to be active,” she said. “There aren’t many activities here and the people aren’t active, so I thought: I need to get outside and do things. I need a new car. Then I decided to get a van and glamp it up.”

    [/COLOR][COLOR=rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.99)]At first, Joan’s family wasn’t too thrilled about her plan to travel in her Ford transit camper conversion. She has four children, and one of her son’s said: “Mom, you’re too old.”[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.99)]But she told him this: “How old would I be if I didn’t do this? My age is old but I don’t feel old. I feel perfectly capable of driving myself around the country. It’s going to be a great adventure! Eventually, I got them on my side.”[/COLOR]

    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    I fallow a bunch of folks on YouTube who live in everything from camper vans to truck cap campers.

    This guy interviews them...

    Don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t take advice from.
