Meet Walden

I decided to name the camper Walden. I liked the idea of alliteration that several suggested. I looked at a few baby name web sites for names with W and Walden was the winner.  Things I like about the name:

Allusion to Thoreau

Full name: Walden the Westfalia

Nickname: Wally the Westy

I can answer "Walden" to "Where do you live?"


I was going to do a Top Ten list, but was creative enough for only four things. Sorry about that.

    Good luck with your new life and adventure!  I hope it all is a great adventure and turns out well for you and Thor!  I think Walden is a very appropriate name.

    I think it's great what you are doing. Hubby & I are planning same thing as soon as we sell our property. Been planning for awhile. We have an aliner pulled behind our subaru outback. Canoe on top of aliner. Bikes on top of outback. Ck out great site for fulltimers. Great hangout for weekends is Indian Boundary campground not to far from you.

    I heard VW was going to be releasing a new edition of the van that was so popular in the 60’s and 70’s as a cheap alternative to RV’s. I’m excited for it. In the meantime I would say your camper does very much look like a Walden.
