Hey there! My name is Bert, and I live in beautiful Southern California and travel part-time in my self-built Ford Transit 250 van named Ernie. Like most van lifers, I got tired of the 9-5 lifestyle and decided to hit the road to see what the country had to offer. I’ve traveled mostly up and down the west coast from Canada to Baja and had wonderful adventures along the way while meeting some of the most amazing people on the road. I’m using SoCalVanLife.com to help fellow van lifers and travelers find the best adventures in and around Southern California that works for the van life lifestyle.
