My Four (4) Year Van Life Journey

Because I am a Speaker and Author that have written 26 non-fiction books at about many areas of my life, one day I will probably pen a book about living my Nomadic life, and even about my ‘Spiritual Journey,’ but I am in no way ready to do it yet.

I want to experience more of this lifestyle first, therefore, I will just keep documenting my journey with pictures, videos, and blog posts and will keep journaling about my experiences.

-My First Year on the Road, #VanLife

I left Senior apartments in Orlando, FL after one year to start my Van Life Journey on Oct. 1, 2019, and 6 days later I celebrated my 62nd birthday in Atlanta, GA with my daughter.

New Home State: One week later on Oct. 14, I bought a brand new Dodge Ram Promaster 3500 Cargo Van and five (5) days later I headed to Livingston, TX. Once I registered the vehicle and signed up for the mailing address, I made Texas my NEW HOME STATE for my Nomadic life. This meant not only would I receive mail from this Texas address, but as a Veteran, I would also receive my yearly doctor’s visit from Texas.

Made It to the RTR: My goal was to make it out to the 2020 Rubber Tramp Rendezvous (RTR) to learn more about living a Nomadic Life. However, since it took 82 days for my tags to come in from Atlanta to Texas, I barely made it to this event. Once I received my new permanent van tags, I had about 2 days to make it to Parker, AZ, which meant I had to drive up to 10 hours for two days to arrive at the event on time. 

First Sickness On the Road: Once I made it to the event after the four (4) day Women Rubber Tramp Rendezvous (RTR), I got extremely sick after having dinner with a friend at the Casino in Parker, AZ.

Getting sick on the road especially initially was hard because you had to make sure you were in a ‘self-contained’ vehicle, which I was and you had to be parked in a spot where you did not have to move for a few days so I was at the Casino in Parker, AZ so I was set to just rest to try to heal my ownself before seeking out help.

Once I spent days resting, drinking a ton of water, eating Chicken Soup, Crackers and taking over-the-counter decongestant medications, I realized that I was not going to be able to heal myself so I sought out help from the in Phoenix. Once I got on the 5-day z-pack, I started feeling better within 48 hours.

I Chased the Weather: In my first year, I also chased the weather and tried to stay in climates that were mild and comfortable. When I did end up in harsh hot climates, I sought help from other Nomads online who suggested I buy sleeping bags and long johns to stay warm and move to a mild climate to stay cool. They even suggested I go to Flagstaff, AZ, which was one of the coolest spots in Arizona.

How I Powered The Vehicle: In my first year, I mostly used ‘battery-operated’ inside fans (at least 5) to cool down the vehicle. Because then I had no solar or fans on top of my vehicle during my first year, I only used the 2500 Jackery to power the vehicle so I mostly powered my vehicle by riding around with my Jackery plugged into my vehicle.

Eventually, I bought the solar panel that went with it, but it took hours to charge the power box. This made it hard for me to use my laptop, steamer, and blender, which took up much of my power from the Jackery but I made it work. 

My Number One Goal My First Year: As a Holistic and Natural Healer and author of six (6) health books, my first year on the road was uplifting, however, my main goal was to get rid of the ‘heavy metals’ in my system that I got from smelling all the cigarette smoke for one year while living in Senior apartments in Orlando, FL.

This meant eating good clean, organic foods, foods especially that go rid of heavy metals such as cilantro and engage in regular detoxifications out here on the road.  It wasn’t easy especially since I chose to stay at Walmarts and Truck Stops in my first year on the road, which had a lot of car, van, RV and truck traffic, which meant I would be exposed to more toxic fumes.

-My Second Year – Best Year Ever

Found My New Favority Way of Parking As a Nomad: By the time my second year rolled around I was done with staying at Walmarts and Truck Stops so staying on, National Forest Land also called “Dispersed Camping Land” had become my favorite way to travel.

My Most Healthiest Year on the Road: My second year by far had to be my most healthiest and happiest out here on the road because that is the year I was able to completely explore the state of Colorado for over 2 months.

Hard Lessons as a ‘Solo Female Traveler’ on the Road: However, it would also be the year that I had a hard lesson to learn because that is also the year that I chose to do this lifestyle as a “Solo Female Camper” after camping out with and moving into the state of Colorado with other campers that I found out wasn’t a good fit for me. 

Here Come the Arizona, Colorado, and California Fires: That would also be the year that we will forever remember the Arizona fires that ran all Campers and Nomads off BLM and National Forest Land. Many Walmarts, Cracker Barrels, Truck Stops and other locations were packed with Nomads just trying to wait out the fires. After I went to Colorado to get away from the Flagstaff Fires, after a few weeks, I also had to leave the state of Colorado because of the Colorado fires.

In Search of More Power: Once I made it back to Flagstaff, I had planned on driving out to Portland to pick up a new power box, my 2nd power box after graduating from my 2500 Jackery ( and I just did not know what to expect on my two-day drive from Flagstaff to Portland.

I ended up dealing with the California fires going in and out of Portland, OR and California, but was lucky to have been able to complete that trip in a timely and safe manner.

-My Third Year – My Sickest On the Road

My third year was my sickest on the road. I had always told myself the only reason I would probably leave this lifestyle was due to sickness, so I never thought about leaving this lifestyle, but it had been my sickest year on the road to date. I had also got sick when I first arrived in Arizona during the RTR, but after getting on antibodies from the Phoenix system, I quickly recovered. 

However, what I had going on in my 3rd year on the road was totally different than what I had in my 1st year. Yes I tried getting on the anitibodies, the Z-pack, but it did not work.

What I had going on during my third year on the road lasted for months, which resulted in me being weak, having vertigo, and pain throughout my body, and sometimes I could literally feel my heart beating through my chest.

What had happened was when I went to Texas for my physical in 2021, I was ‘super energetic’ and ‘high energy’ like usual. I was going into the gym 4 to 5 days a week and even two of those days, I went in twice a day.

So I was energetic when I got to Texas but by the time 4 to 5 months rolled by, I was feeling weak, sluggish, and out of sorts. I was able to engage in my weekly or monthly enewsletters, but my body had started to show symptoms that I don’t usually have to deal with.

I even sought out help from my doctor’s office, but since I had refused to take the COVID test, my doctor who had treated me for 5 years when I lived there, REFUSED to see me. I had gone to the emergency department before talking to her nurse but they both had refused to see me unless I took the COVID test. 

Since I was due to leave Texas within a few days I just left and came back west to Flagstaff. Once I got back out here to Flagstaff, my weakiness and slugginess continued but because I had a fallout with a dentist in Austin, I wanted to see another local dentist so I promptly started going in and out of a dentist’s office when I got back to Flagstaff.  

Military Gave Me the Old Dental Fillings that Contained ‘Heavy Metals’: My goal was to have the old dental amalgam fillings that had been in my mouth for 40 years, since I was in the Military, removed along with doing more work in my mouth. I was set to use my current Dental Insurance to have the procedures done so I proceeded to have several things done to my mouth in Flagstaff. 

After several dentistry office visits, I felt even worse and was not able to make the connection to my weakness or slugginess until I got back to Austin, months later, for my yearly physical. My doctor was all hands-on after turning me down for treatment because of my refusal to take a COVID Test the prior year.

Diagnosed With Hypothyrodism: This is when my doctor told me my thyroid numbers were high, which meant I had ‘hypothyroidism’, which made sense why I had felt so bad for months and why I could not even go to the gym. 

The doctor said if I got on Thyroid Medications, then I should feel better instantly, but I had never been on any Medications, except depression supplements in the workplace, and I knew that I did have hypothyroidism in the past and cured it with natural supplements so I chose to go on natural supplements again. 

As a Holistic and Natural Healer, I thought about the sickness and researched it again extensively and found out that Dental X-rays could cause hypothyroidism to occur so it all made sense why I ended up having hypothyroidism mostly because of the two dentists that had given me these prolonged X-ray examinations. 

Too Many Dentistry Office Visits: I probably could have easily recovered if I used just one dental office, but I ended up going to two dentistry offices, which took all of these dental X-rays on me and probably fried my thyroid. This is also when I remember when I lost my voice for about 2 to 3 weeks. All of it just made sense now why I got hypothyroidism in the first place.

I felt really bad as a Holistic and Natural Healer and asked myself many times how come I did not catch it because not only had I had hypothyroidism before but I had written articles on it. However, I vowed as a Holistic and Natural Healer, that I would take measures in the future to make sure that this particular illness just doesn’t seep up on me again. 

-My Fourth Year – Recovery

My 4th year was about recovering from my 3rd year. After having the hypothyroidism diagnosis and making my way back out west to the Flagstaff, AZ area, my number one goal was to get fit and heal. 

My goal was to get fit, strong, vibrant, and back to my high-energy state again like I had felt many times before with my holistic and natural lifestyle. What everyone needs to understand is “Getting Old Doesn’t Make You Sick” but “Getting Sick Does Make You Old.” 

I had to watch what I ate so that I did not purposely give myself parasites because I knew a majority of the foods had parasites, which meant I would have to shut down and do regular detoxes. I slowly started exercising again. I made it back into the gym, but my favorite way of working out because going out to BLM and National Forest Land. 

Spiritual Researcher and Author: In May 2023, shortly after arriving back out west, I stopped writing the dark long enewsletters that I had written for 3 years. It was just time to give it up so I could concentrate on getting well again. However, because writing brought me such pleasure, I started writing Spiritual Newsletters, which again brought me pleasures.

The Long Hot Summer: My fourth year on the road had an excruciating long hot summer. As a matter of fact I had not experienced a summer like this since my first year on the road but I believe I got caught up in it because I was healing from last year. Had I been paying better attention, I would have chosen to be out more on BLM or National Forest Land and even travel to other cooler areas like Colorado. But by the time I thought of all of this, the heat was actually dying down, but it was a lesson for me to never get caught up again. 

Transitioning Into a 5D Earth – #NewUpcomingChanges

This Page Will Continue to Be Updated With New 5D Earth Changes

This is just a short overview of some of the upcoming 5D New Earth changes:

3rd Dimension vs. 5th Dimension:

The 3rd Dimension is a state of consciousness that is very limited and restricted. Because so many of us have lived in this 3rd dimensional reality for so many lifetimes we assume this is all there is. We live in a very limited, restricted reality of experience.

The 5th Dimension is kind of like a fairytale…Humanity will live in harmony and peace while respecting all people and Earth and living in oneness with everything around them. There will be no more control, corruption, hunger, poverty, separation, or crime. Everyone will be living without fear and judgment but living with alignment and connection with Mother Earth, Spirit in honor and resonance with God the Source of Love and Life.

The Ascension Process:  Once we wake up from the Ascension Process everything around us should be beautiful just like dreaming a vivid dream. There are currently two Earths running side by side with each other – the old 3D Earth, where there is turmoil, chaos, and sadness, and the Spiritual 5D Earth, or #PlanetTerra, where there is peace, love, joy, and happiness.

This is the first time that Planet Earth has ever gone through an Ascension process. Many #StarSeeds (read Dolores Cannon’s book “The Three Waves of Volunteers”) volunteered to come or to be reincarnated on Earth to help others ascend into the 5th Dimension.  It’s estimated that every third baby born since 2012, is probably an Indigo Child or a StarSeed who came in with their DNA already changed, which means they have extraordinary gifts, which they will manifest during the Solar Flash. 

The Solar Flash: The Solar Flash, which should occur by the end of the year or next year, is a two-way process. First, it will be an external event. We have seven (7) chakras. The Solar Flash is about doing the Spiritual and external work that will collapse the seven (7) chakras into oneness – into a single white light and that is us the 144,000.

That will be a cue for the sun to release the signal and activate the dormant DNA. StarSeeds and Non-StarSeeds’ DNA will be upgraded to the next stage and there will be different levels of upgrades.

It will wake up everyone worldwide and snap them out of their hypnosis and/or mind control and the Fifth (5th) Dimension “StarSeeds” will become “immortal.” 

Once we have the Solar Flash, we will be able to heal ourselves with our own frequencies and manifest whatever we want as we become ‘Superheroes’, the “New Guardians of the Earth,” where many StarSeeds:

-Will become psychic

-Be able to teleport themselves into other dimensions

-Be able to astral travel

-Be telepathic (read others’ minds)

-Be able to use telekinesis (move objects)

-And will be able to see into the future as we start to age regress (get younger) with our crystalline bodies.

There Will Be No More Reincarnations: We all came from source — where we were only a beam of light and this is where we will go back to eventually. We have lived thousands of lives on Planet Earth and other planets and we were even ETs before. Some of us have been other sexes and other races, but when we come back we lose our memories and have to start all over again as a baby. 

Remember #PlanetEarth is an #EarthSchool, where many volunteer to come to learn lessons. If you say you did not learn anything, then you have to repeat the school again so you will come back again or be reincarnated again.

Before we come back we sign a ‘Soul Contract’ and we are able to pick our parents, siblings, and how hard we want our lives to be. We can also choose how we will come in and go out. We choose if we will come in by ourselves or with a group (COVID babies) or go out by ourselves or with a group (Natural Disasters).

Since this is the Earth’s first time going through the Ascension Process, when we shift into the 4th, 5th, and other Dimensions we will take our bodies with us so there will be no more reincarnations.

4D vs. 5D Earth: Those not coming over to the 4D or 5D Earth will be the prisoners who haven’t tried to reform themselves, those still committing crimes, and those who are just plain evil.

On a 4D Earth, we will have QFS, Med Beds, and government but not on a 5D Earth. Because we will be Sovereign and our frequencies so high not only will we have Superhero powers once we reach the 5D Earth, but we will be able to manifest what we need and cure ourselves and we won’t even need money.

If you are a good person you will be going to the 4D Spiritual Earth (#PlanetTerra) and live for a few more hundred years but continue to work on raising your frequencies and vibrations so you can go into other higher dimensions.

You will still see all your Earth family that are in the 4D and other dimensions because they can just lower their frequencies and come and visit you. However, the people who have crossed over have lived out their ‘Soul Contracts’ so you will never walk side by side with them again.

They are now living in other dimensions in other bodies and are now even other races or sexes, but it is possible for others to seem familiar to you and they might become a part of your ‘Soul Family’ in the future.

The only time you will be able to recognize those who have crossed over is when they come and meet you at the ‘Pearly Gates’ of Heaven when you crossover.

Read Dolores Cannon’s book “Between Death and Life,’ which will explain where you go when you die. There is no reason to feel sad. They are happy and want you to be happy too — 

Med Beds vs. Celestial Chambers: Check out Jared Rand on Telegram who often discusses “Celestial Beds”, which like the FREE Military Med Beds also came from Offworlders. Jared compares the FREE Military Med Beds to a “Volkswagen” and the Celestial Beds to a “Spaceship”.

One problem with the Celestial Beds is they are run by Artificial Intelligence (AI), which I believe is our ‘true enemy’. He is looking to raise $60,000,000. Then they will turn over the technology to others, which I see might also be a problem.

I would not trust just anyone to build these beds especially since they were initially built by Offworlders. Sure, the Celestial Beds are more advanced than the FREE Military Med Beds, but we will be able to get there on our own after the Solar Flash when we develop our crystalline bodies. Also, the 6000 Tesla patents/cures will have ways for us to heal ourselves naturally too.

Replicators are Now Mainstream: Replicators will be given to all those creating Med Bed Centers. There are active talks about Replicators, which can replicate (duplicate) clothing, foods, and even buildings at Med Bed and Healing Centers, just like what you saw on StarTrek, etc. so the 5D earth is upon us.

Go back and watch Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, and the Superhero shows including X-Men, Superman, etc. because this is where we are headed on a 5D earth.

Much of what happened during the filming of these shows was our true Galactic history so go back and watch these shows if this is what it takes for you to truly wake up. Read my Spiritual Newsletters at

Time is Speeding Up: You had to notice that time was speeding up. Time only matters on Planet Earth. Other planets don’t go by time. They have light crystalline bodies, which will we also receive as we go into the 5th dimension.

ETs don’t eat food (but they can) and many don’t need 8 hours of sleep at night. Instead of lounging around on couches for hours like we do, ETs are out moving about and having fun and soon we will be able to join them as we travel to the Moon, Mars, and other planets as we start Space traveling.

New Flying Cars Being Announced: Airports will turn into parks in the future and in about 10 years or sooner cars will be going away. Eventually, we will run out of cars and you will have to put your name on a list just to get a car.

Flying cars are coming out in the next two years. They already have a fast rail system above and underground.

Fox News announced that flying cars are in the works, and they are taking orders. The cost is around $300,000. That is how things start.  I believe they have already announced the cars that you can drive underwater too.

Grocery Stores Will Turn Into Farmer’s Markets: Many big box grocery stores will be closing down. Many grocery stores containing toxic foods will become farmer’s markets with foods grown within communities. These natural foods will also be offered at gas stations and convenience stores so the toxic foods in these establishments will also disappear.

Every Home Will Have a Green House: Every future home will have a Green House inside or outside and even its own spa area so many will be able to consume foods grown by themselves or from local farmer’s markets.

Many will also grow foods in the ground, in raised bed gardens, or in pots and containers on patios, rooftops, balconies, porches, or in their kitchen or another room with grow lights.

Many won’t be eating or they will only eat fruits or other foods sparingly. Many have already cut back on their food. Some are just craving smoothies and no longer have a taste for certain foods. Just allow your body to pick your foods for consumption, but always go for organic foods with very little cooking or raw. 

Future Clothing: Because clothing today is causing sickness, everyone, especially all women, is encouraged to stop wearing tight-fitting clothing. Our future clothing will basically be ‘loose-fitting’ and will look similar to pajamas.

Future clothing will be made out of natural products such as hemp, cotton, and linen. Many in the future will be using Replicators (to duplicate clothing) to choose their clothing. Others will be bartering services and this includes swapping clothing with each other. 

Military is the New Intelligence Gatherers: Since we won’t have any more wars and will have a thousand years of peace, the FBI and CIA will be going away and the Military will take over intelligence gathering — along with arresting those committing crimes, especially “Crimes Against Humanity” such as Child Pedophilia, Child, Sex and Human Trafficking, Adrenochrome and Organ Harvesting, etc; and they will be watching over and protecting Med Bed Centers.

Chemtrails Are Going Away: Get ready for a bright new beautiful world. Chemtrails and HAARP have been controlling the weather so now that HAARP is in the hands of the White Hat Alliance or the “Good Guys,” Chemtrails are going away and the weather should be mild everywhere. Is Going Away: was KING at one time but they were extremely evil and were taken out by the White Hats. will be taken over by Squarespace.

The Future of Social Media: also owns and I remember when that CEO was arrested for “Crimes Against Humanity” so let’s see which social media platforms will survive.

Facebook, which owns Instagram (aka “Pedogram”) was created by the CIA and DARPA and since there will be no more CIA, do we really need these social media platforms?

I am so glad to be off Facebook. It is such a ‘low vibrational’ 3D earth platform so start getting away from the social media platforms. However, I am on Instagram at least until after the Gesara announcement. 

TikTok shows different and positive images in China compared to what they put out to the rest of the world, so good chances they won’t survive either. They want to corrupt the kids everywhere but China.

Twitter was taken over by Elon Musk so it is one of the safest platforms to be on right now. However, they discuss too much politics for me on that platform so I post and keep it moving 

-COVID Doctors Being GITMOED: Crime won’t be tolerated and will eventually go away on a 5D Earth. Over 19,000 doctors were indicted for their involvement in COVID and at least 10 were hanged. According to the Nuremberg Code, humane experimentation is justified only if its results benefit society and it is carried out in accordance with basic principles that “satisfy moral, ethical, and legal concepts.”

How To Transition into the 4th and 5th Dimensions

Keep raising your frequencies and vibrations. Also, remember to stop judging and remove your ego while doing the following:

  • Love on everyone
  • Live in gratitude
  • Be generous to everyone you meet
  • Forgive all your past karma
  • Eat high vibe foods especially organic
  • Reduce and eliminate alcohol and toxins from your body
  • Meditate and do breathwork
  • Walk in nature
  • Hug trees
  • Sungaze
  • Laugh more
  • Think positive thoughts

Protect yourself and your energy by holding weekly rituals and ceremonies with sage, candles, and incense, and lay out your protection stones and crystals to bring in positive energy.

Ask your Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides for help in the areas where you need help. They are always with you and are listening but will only intervene if you ask for it. Do this weekly, especially during Full Moons.

Reasons I Change Spots on BLM and National Forest Land

I only came into the city to publish this video. I am trying to go back to BLM and National Forest land so I can sungaze, do yoga, meditate, and get grounded by walking barefoot in nature. I am trying to activate my ‘Pineal Gland’. You won’t believe the dreams I am having and yes like many others I can remember my dreams.

All of this just means my Pineal Gland is being activated. If you can’t get into nature and walk barefoot, you can also invest in an Earthing mat at and grounding shoes on Amazon.

As most of you know in my 4 years on the road I enjoy staying on BLM or National Forest Land or in the city so I can receive good internet.

The following are reasons why I leave spots on BLM and National Forest Land:

-There is a Lack of Internet

-The Good Spots are Already Taken -The Area is Too Isolated (#StrangerDanger)

-There are Too Many ‘Unleashed’ Dogs

-There is Too Much Rain and Wind -There is Too Much Noise (traffic, trains, loud generators)

-Campers Walking Through Your Camp

-Campers Shooting Off Weapons

Rule of Thumb for Nomads, #CampEtiquette:

-On many holidays because campers enjoyed your spot in the past, they will park right next to you or walk across your camp or even look into your windows trying to get you to leave. Never walk through or drive through someone’s camp and never stick your head in their window. Knock on the door on the side of their vehicle.

-One holiday weekend I thought I found a good spot on BLM and National Forest Land but when I woke up, there was a big 5th wheel parked 10 feet in front of my front bumper. They were loud and noisy and constantly trying to look into my window, so I left that same day.

-Even when you find good spots, or think you have gotten away from others, someone will park right next to you. Try not to park right next to others unless there are no more parking spots even in the city. Respect the fact that they were there first.

-After 4 years on the road sometimes I don’t like noise coming from my vehicle but I don’t always like to wear my earphones when watching YouTube shows or listening to audiobooks so this is why I try to park away from others. Car dwellers stop parking right next to vans without windows so you can hide the fact that you don’t have window covers. Go into Walmart and buy some cheap towels or buy Reflectix from Home Depot.

-Many Nomads charge their power boxes and battery banks up with a generator by 8:00 padic quiet hours are from 8:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m. Turn off that loud generator!!!  but many others run their generators after 11:00 p.m. and this is very disrespectful. I could see doing it sometimes especially if you arrived in camp late, but many do this every night.

Safety On the Road – The Three (3) Times I Did Not Feel Safe on the Road – #SoloFemaleTraveler

Sep. 10, 2023

Hello Family:

I am going on my 4th year of being on the road in October 2023, so I finally found time to tell you what happened to me in Livingston, TX when I was only 5 days in my new vehicle, a 2019 Dodge Ram Promaster.

The other incident was in my 2nd year in 2021 when I tried to travel with a camping group but realized I prefer to be on my own as a #SoloFemaleTraveler (Read the blog post at the end).

The 3rd incident was on the 4th of July weekend in 2023, and it happened in Flagstaff, AZ.

In U.S. history, they had “Sundown Towns,” which are also called “Sunset Towns,” or towns that excluded nonwhite people—most frequently African Americans—from remaining in town after sunset. More generally, sundown town is used to describe a place where the resident population was through deliberate action made to be overwhelmingly composed of white people.

I came to my conclusion that Livingston, TX was probably a “Sundown Town,” not just because of what the guy did to me at Walmart, but I found it troubling when the female workers at laughed at me because I was registering a Van instead of an RV. But isn’t a built-out Van, especially a professionally built-out Van, also Ran V?

Also, the workers at the RV Park were very unfriendly to me because RV Parks don’t really like to cater to Vans. They spoke to me negatively when they said they only have 3 dry camping spots. The only person I found friendly and upbeat in the town of Livingston, TX was the Walmart manager who gave me permission to camp out in the Walmart parking lot for 2 days.

Everything especially traveling and camping will be fun and exciting on a 5D earth. Much of this negatively along with these “low vibrational individuals” will be going away on a 5D earth but until we have the Ascension Process, especially the Solar Flash, I caution #SoloFemaleTravelers and a Woman of Color to be careful on the road.

Please share these tips with your daughters and sons also. Nomadic rules to live by on the road:

BEWARE OF SUNDOWN CITIES: If you are in a small possibly ‘Sundown City,’ especially if you are in the state of Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, etc. (small cities anywhere), then the RULE OF THUMB FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR is DON’T ALWAYS SHOW YOURSELF; park around others; and be tucked in by sundown.

HAVE A CONCEALED CARRY WEAPON PERMIT WITH YOU: As a Nomad park near others especially if you think you might have to use deadly force so that you will have witnesses. If you are protecting yourself from a man or animal, you can use deadly force. If you witness others being attacked by a man or animal, you can also use deadly force in that situation. Just make sure you have a “Concealed Carry Weapon Permit” and join “Legal Defense for Self-Defense Associations” from your state so you will have an attorney on call if you need them.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING SCOUTS AND LOOKOUTS ARE EVERYWHERE: Just remember that Human Trafficking scouts are working full-time to kidnap women, girls, and boys. They drive up and down freeways watching you get gas at truck stops, watching you in stores and restaurants, and watching you on freeways so always pay attention to your surroundings. The people working in stores and even in restaurants at truck stops could also be Human Trafficking scouts or lookouts. Also, be careful of these small-town police departments.

RULE OF THUMB WHEN STAYING AT TRUCK STOPS: Never spend the night at a truck stop if you get gas there, especially if you go inside the store because Human Trafficking scouts and lookouts are everywhere, and they are always watching you. Instead, pull in your parking spot for the night and jump in the back seat then gas up the next morning and keep it moving. Try not to spend back-to-back days at a truck stop going in and out of stores or restaurants. Never let them see what you look like. Share video and info with others. 

PACK YOUR OWN LUNCH FOR THE ROAD: There is nothing inside of these stores or restaurants at truck stops anyway. Most of the cold and hot foods have SEDATIVES in it so if you consume these foods while you are driving, you will fall asleep behind the wheel, so again, avoid going inside of stores and restaurants at truck stops. Pack your own high vitality, long-lasting foods for the road.

DISGUISE YOURSELF AS THE OPPOSITE SEX WHEN TRAVELING LONG DISTANCE: We all know that men are better protected on the road than women. Many times, when I drive long distance and know that I will be using truck stops, I try to wear caps, no makeup and purposely try to look like a man. I pay for gas outside only and never go inside stores at truck stops.

Cathy Harris 67th Birthday and Four (4) Year Van Life Anniversary Update

I worked on this blog post all day. I wanted to show some of you where I was headed so it could also inspire you to make moves in your own life – to reach for your dreams. Also, read “Transitioning Into a 5D Earth, #NewUpcomingChanges” 

Just remember on a new 5D earth, it is about doing what your heart desires. Remember when you were young – what is it that you always wanted to do? Many said they would be starting Med Bed centers, but I was in their groups, and I did not feel their passion.

Whatever you do you need to have PASSION behind it. This is the do-over that you always wanted or dreamed of in your life so don’t make the mistake of getting involved with or doing something that you are just not passionate about. 


Many people are surprised that I am still doing traveling videos at “Simple Life RVing” after 4 years on the road, especially as I go into my 67th birthday and my 4 year “Van Life Anniversary” on Oct. 6, 2023. However, my goal was always to educate my audience through my traveling videos.

Now might also be the time to invest in new computers and cameras. I have only been in a dwelling for a little over 30 days in the past 4 years and using my phone video to shoot videos may no longer fit my lifestyle. I might also go back to my FIRST LOVE, which was ‘photography’ so having more updated photo and video equipment might just be what I need to give myself for my upcoming birthday and newly built-out van.

NEW EARTH EDUCATOR (Spiritual and New Earth Newsletters, Humanitarian Project, and New Spiritual Podcast)

As a NEW EARTH EDUCATOR, the only things I will commit to moving forward are my traveling videos, Spiritual and New Earth newsletters, and my Humanitarian Project with my “Food and Business Initiatives”

Also, as I travel around the country I will be educating my audience through a NEW ‘SPIRITUAL’ PODCAST entitled “Cathy Harris Podcast” on Zoom.US and on YouTube. The new podcast will take place once I finish my final van build-out (Phase 3) so I am just putting that out into the universe and bringing it into existence. 

However, I will actively start teaching more on my traveling videos until I can get the “Spiritual Podcast” up and running. Meanwhile, I am so proud of the “Spiritual” and “New Earth” Newsletters at I am bursting with joy to tell you about some of the New 5D earth changes so keep checking those newsletters for all the updates. I will give you some now.

PHASE 3 (Final Van Buildout)

Some vanners in #VanLife opt for professional van build-outs but I was just waiting and studying how these vans were built out before I attempted to hire others to help me with my endeavors.

The van-building community has come a long way since I first conducted all my research before getting on the road in 2019 so I am excited about how they are able to build out vans now.

For instance, I made a choice to put 800 watts of solar on top with two Max Air fans because where I stayed, I was constantly in the sun. I knew I would not have room for an ‘on-the-top’ air conditioner, but now there are several of these that they can easily place inside of your van so I can’t wait for Phase 3 or my final van buildout.

I do love the fall and winter weather probably because I was born in October in cold weather. The reason I want to go the extra mile for a heater in my van is it is my dream to be in a place like Colorado or Flagstaff, AZ (so I don’t have to leave the area when cold weather comes in), and be surrounded with snow outside covering the ground —  while I am warm and comfortable inside. Many are also opting to get the heated floors too so that is another option.

Also, I am opting for an air conditioner in my van because I just love the state of Florida and I want to have BOOTS ON THE GROUND (in the trenches) in the state of Florida to help Seniors and the Nomadic Community out west in Flagstaff, Sedona, Lake Havasu City, Parker, Quartzsite, etc., which is #NomadLand, as my physical TARGETED AUDIENCE to educate on the NEW 5D earth.

Of course, I will be stopping in other areas too (Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, etc.), and also teaching my national and international audience on Zoom and on YouTube.

I am looking at companies to help me either in Portland or in Glendale, AZ, which is only 2 hours away, but I have yet to speak to them about whether they can place the battery bank away from my sleeping and working area.

Also, I have to tell them about the books I will be traveling with. So, my priority with my last buildout (Phase 3) is I need the bed raised with a 500-pound slide under the bed containing 2 big containers of books or the Murphy bed; the battery bank needs to be away from my sleeping and working area during the day; I also need a ‘girly girl’ hanging clothes closet.

As a Speaker, Author, and Coach, I travel with 6 health books including 2 books on gardening, 2 business books, and other (18 total) easy-to-read non-fiction books, but I have 26 non-fiction books at My goal is to keep two small suitcases filled with my eighteen (18) books so they can be easily refilled from the two containers in the back of the van.  

Even though I have three (3) gym memberships, having a shower and a composting toilet will be nice because, like most women, I really don’t want to deal with a black tank. Therefore, they can give me a full-size bed instead of a queen and cut out some of the kitchen cabinet space to honor my wishes so we will see if this can be done.

Also, since I have been eating only with a steamer and blender for the past 4 years, and eating a lot of my foods raw (to gain nutrition you should eat 40% to 50% of foods raw every day), I AM NOT opting for an induction cooktop, electric stove, propane stove, air fryer, or a microwave oven either. What I am doing now is working and keeping me healthy.

So, what do you think? I don’t think that is too much to ask for. After 4 years on the road, I seriously had looked at buying a new van, possibly the Winnebago Travato, but now many are having older vans built out to their liking, so I decided against a new van at this time especially with all the crime taking place I don’t want to make myself a target especially when I go into inner cities with my Humanitarian Project.

However, in a couple of years, most crime should be gone on the 5D earth so it will be the perfect time to buy something new and hand down ‘StarShip’, my baby, to my daughter who is also now a camper. However, by then flying cars could possibly be out, and in ten (10) years (or sooner) most cars won’t be needed especially since we will be using other forms of travel including teleporting into other dimensions.

Three-Part Van Life Documentary Removed from

The 3-part Van Life Documentary series was released in June 2023, but because I mentioned the ‘Lollipop’ (aka ‘COVID’) in the 2nd part of my Van Life Documentary, it was removed by Therefore, I will make the necessary corrections and repost the entire 3-part documentary in its entirety over the next few weeks. Thanks for your support.


I enjoy doing card Tarot Card readings and have been doing them since I moved to Austin, TX in 2015. But like most of what I do, especially teaching on natural health, I don’t push it on anyone. Therefore, if you want to have a Tarot Card Reading with me just let me know.

My Tarot Readings are designed to help you move through whatever issues you’re facing with greater clarity and confidence. From personal matters to questions about love, career, finances, or a major decision you need to make, I am here to answer your questions. However, I would like my Tarot Readings to focus more on Self-Development. Email: for a private appointment by Zoom, Phone, or Email.


I can’t wait to go back to Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, and Philly again too, like I did on my ’15-state tour’ and my “One Year Tour on the Road” in 2013, which turned out to be one of my BEST YEARS on the road, but I will give it time for crime to calm down in those areas.

Remember all homes will have a ‘Greenhouse’ in the future and now that Chemtrails are going away, it is time to grow foods so check out my website at ( to see my 20 videos and how I successfully grew foods in three (3) different seasons in three (3) raised bed gardens for one year in Austin, TX. 

If you would like for me ( or ( to visit your area for 2 to 3 weeks and work with your community to show them, especially women, how to grow foods inside and outside of their homes and how to bring back Mom and Pop businesses then contact Cathy Harris at or and get your name and community on the list now.

How To Save Your Home

July 6, 2022

Also read: Survival Steps If You Are Totally Out of Funds

The Number One Reason that Families Lost Their Homes in the Past

Did you know that in the past the number one reason that most people lost their homes were because of illness? Nowadays it’s mostly due to this recession and the weakened economy.

I lost my home when I became ill and had to leave my job on 15 months unpaid leave. If I knew then what I know now, I would have been able to save my home even without having an income.

During that time, I was able to say in my home for over 15 months without paying a house/mortgage note. At the time my options were to become homeless or stay in the house, so I took steps to stay in the house by filing a Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Sometimes when you are going through touch and difficult times, it’s better to walk away and fight back later, especially when you are ill. So I walked away from my home. I have since recovered from my illness and now would like to give others options on how to survive and keep their homes.

Since illness is still a major reason that people lose their homes, it’s important to have adequate health coverage. Some health insurances pay a specified portion of your medical bills in the event of an illness or hospitalization. 

Women who are single parents and heads of household have had their lives destroyed by foreclosures. These foreclosures sometimes cause homelessness and in many cases, hopelessness.

What You Need To Know About Disability Insurance

Since illness is the number one reason for foreclosures, it is always a good idea to make sure you have some type of disability insurance. 

Disability insurance is temporary insurance, so be sure to make other provisions to carry you through any type of illness you might get on or off the job. 

Often you can obtain disability insurance through your job or outside your job at a company that sells disability insurance. Many people never inquire about this type of insurance unless they have been through the system or know someone who has. Just be aware that it’s there to help in case you suffer some type of disability.

Being insured for a disability is especially critical for single parents. You may be covered at work or through social security benefits, but that coverage is often restricted in the amount and duration of payments. You’ll probably need to buy your own policy to fill in the gap.

There are short-term and long-term disability insurances:

Short-Term Disability: Short-term disability insurance might only last three months. During this time you will receive a monthly check.

Long-Term Disability: Long-term disability insurance kicks in when an individual has been unable to work for an extended period of time. It continues to provide benefits for varying lengths of time, depending on what is specified in the worker’s contract. 

Many people especially those who own homes, should look into long-term health care. This coverage is important because fortunately, on average, people are living longer lives. It’s never too early to think about how you will pay for any necessary long-term care.

This insurance generally covers at-home care, assisted living facilities, nursing home care, hospice services, adult day-care, and respite care. The benefit dollar amount can be $50 to $300 per day, depending on the policy. 

Another major reason for long-term healthcare insurance is to preserve your assets. This type of insurance is also available through many organizations, such as the 

Most disability insurance plans replace anywhere from 45 to 70 percent of the individual’s gross income, on a tax-free basis in the event that an illness prevents the policyholder from earning an income.

If you rely solely on earned income for your everyday needs, consider coverage of 60 to 70% of your gross income. Explore your options. 

The cheapest price is not necessarily the first thing to look for here. Every disability policy is different, and the odds of getting paid a monthly benefit under a cheap contract can be significantly lower than receiving benefits from a quality contract. 

Some policies will pay if you are disabled and can no longer work in your chosen profession, while others will pay only if you cannot work at all.

If you work for the federal government, you can file a claim through the worker’s compensation system, but it takes years to get a claim like this approved. Just make sure you file the appropriate paperwork and keep appealing it and gain the help of a Worker’s Compensation attorney. 

If your doctor tells you that you have a permanent disability, you will need to file for social security ( benefits. Remember, it might take several months for you to qualify for social security claims, so try to prepare financially. If you go this route, try to obtain the help of a Social Security attorney. 

File Your Own Bankruptcy

Over 20,000 million people will be facing homelessness as of July 1, 2022, so this is why I feel we are close to Nesara going through. Everyone was given a 90 day extension on April 1, 2022.

If you are about to become homeless take these steps:

File Your Own Bankruptcy to Stay in Your Home: 

Before funds run out you can file your own bankruptcy on your home to save it.

You can go to Office Depot and fill out the bankruptcy kit or packet and file the bankruptcy yourself – until you can obtain the services of a bankruptcy lawyer to assist you.

This will give you time to just breathe and come up for air. I did it myself back in 2001, after I became a ‘federal whistleblower’ ( and my job forced me to be off work for 15 months on UNPAID sick leave. So I know this process is ‘doable’ and again it will just give you time to breathe. 

Fill out as much of the bankruptcy kit as possible then take the packet to the bankruptcy court. Once they stamp the documents, fax the front page with all your info on it — over to your mortgage company. This might cost a couple of hundred dollars (more now of course). 

The stamp on the paperwork should buy you some time and you won’t have to move. Your next step after filing the paperwork and obtaining a case number is to go ahead and file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which will wipe out all your debt or at least realign your debt.

You can read more about filing for a bankruptcy in my book “How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide to Empowering Your Family and the Entire Community” (Series 2).

I ended up filing both a Chapter 7 and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You can probably get away with not paying anything to remain in the home for several months. I was able to stay in my home rent free for a year.

In the past filing a bankruptcy would stay on your credit file for 7 years, but I don’t believe anyone will have a credit score in the future since everything was a FRAUD.

Don’t wait until the last day in which your house is supposed to be sold on the courthouse steps to file this paperwork. Homes are sold on the courthouse steps the last Tuesday of each month in the state of Georgia, where I lived. 

I am not sure of the date in other states. Many people wait and sometimes the mortgage company decide to sell the property even if they know the homeowner has filed a bankruptcy. If that happens you definitely will have to obtain the services of a lawyer to have the sell reversed, if that is even possible. 

If you want to go this route and file a bankruptcy, you should avoid large bankruptcy firms that treat you like a herd of cattle. They won’t return your calls or answer your questions without an appointment. Some large firms also rotate you from attorney to attorney, leaving no stability and no one really knowing your case directly. 

There are four (4) common types of bankruptcies. To avoid confusion, it is important to explain the purpose of each:

Chapter 7 allows either an individual or business to discharge virtually all unsecured debts. Remember new bankruptcy laws under a Chapter 7 requires persons with a certain income to pay back a portion of their debt. 

Chapter 11 is for individuals or coporations engaged in business who desire to reorganize their debts and seek court protection while they negotiate a plan of reorganiztion with creditors.

Chapter 12 is alike a Chapter 13 but is only for family farmers.

Chapter 13 is an alternative to Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It is desgined foe “wage earners” with relativity small amounts of consumer det (as opposed to business debt). 

Whether you file under Chapter 7, 11, or 13, once a bankruptcy petition is filed, it operates as an AUTOMATIC STAY. Generally, all debt collection or repossession activities by creditors MUST COME TO A HALT. Likewise, all lawsuits must stop while the bankruptcy action is before the bankruptcy court.

The purpose of the AUTOMATIC STAY is to transfer all collection and debtor-creditor matters to the bankruptcy court. For example, creditors may not enforce prior judgements or liens against either the debtor or his property.

Criminal actions against the debtors do continue as do actions for the collection of back alimony or child support. If you haven’t already stopped making payments to creditors, you should stop once your petition is filed. You should, however, stay current on debts incurred after you file the petition. 

Debts in bankruptcies are considered either dischargeable or non-dischargeable. In the future, when you tell potential creditors that you had a bankruptcy, they will ask if you had a discharge.

One of the reasons people file a bankruptcy is to get a discharge. A discharge is a court order that states that you do not have to pay most of your debts. 

Most debts are dischargeable under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This means that you no longer have to pay the debt as it is deemed cancelled. Certain debts are not dischargeable. Debts are not discharged under either Chapter 11 or 13. 

In each instance the debts are only adjusted according to a plan of repayment approved by a majority of creditors and the court. 

Some debts cannot be discharged. For example, you cannot discharge debts for most taxes, child support, alimony, most student loans, court fines, criminal restitutions, and personal injury caused by driving drunk or under the influence of drugs. The discharge only applies to debts that arose before the date you filed. 

Other debts that are normally dischargeable may be denied a discharge because of the actions of the debtor. One of the creditors may petition the court to deny the discharge on one specific debt or on the entire bankruptcy, leaving the debtor without relief from creditor claims. 

Property owners need to be very careful with utilizing the Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney protection solution. Compare everything and make sure that the courts and/or your bankruptcy attorneys and lenders have not set you up to fail.

There have been many cases where the debt was not spread out appropriately in the bankruptcy program which resulted in the property owner paying much higher monthly payments.

In some scenarios, courts will order the property owner to pay the bankruptcy court a certain amount that only covers all other debts outside of the mortgage. Then they will have you spend a higher amount in most cases.

Watch out this procedure will set you to fail without question because if you couldn’t afford the payments before the bankruptcy at whatever amount, what makes anyone think that you can afford to pay a much higher amount?

Beware of Investors

Be careful dealing with investors because there are good ones and bad ones. The bad ones will tell you they will help you catch up on your mortgage notes, but you will have to deed the house over them.

This is called “equity skimming” which is illegal. The seller’s lender could call the entire mortgage due (due on sale clause) at any time if they discover the property owner has deeded the property to anyone — even relatives.

Remember all mortgages is about to be wiped out by Gesara so filing this bankruptcy your ownself will buy you time to continue to have a roof over your head.

 Don’t Move Until You Have To: Banks might start sending foreclosure letters 3 to 6 months before you have to move if you are at least 3 months behind on your mortgage notes.

Meanwhile, just stay there and keep a roof over your head. Don’t leave until the Marshal’s put a yellow or pink slip on your door then you will have 2 weeks to move.

Reach Out to Family or Friends: Call family and friends for a loan or have them come and pick you up if you receive a final notice from the Marshals. Again, it will be a pink or yellow notice that they will place on your door two weeks before you need to move.

If you have to move call family and friends to see if they can hold your belongings in storage or at their garages, but by then your goal should be taking care of yourself and family and leaving behind stuff.

Don’t Wait Until You are Totally Broke: Before you totally run out of money, you can go ahead and put all your belongings in storage for at least 90 days but if your circumstances don’t improve and you can’t make monthly payments, you will lose everything so you might also want to think about holding a yard sale and auctioning off everything.

Just understand that many people never go back to their storage units. That same money that you used to put your belongings in storage, could have been used to feed your family instead.

 Go To a Homeless Shelter: For protection to keep a roof over your head try to go to a homeless shelter, but these will probably be full. Remember if you are a single mother and have a pre-teen male, he will have to stay on the side with the men and will be at risk of being molested.

Move In Your Car, a Van or RV: Many people move in a car, van or RV and go to Walmarts or Truck Stops or ask a family member or friend if they can park in their driveways. There are many other places you can park at overnight. Read “Places to Park Your RV, Van or Car Overnight” (

Survival Action Steps If You Are Totally Out of Funds

by Cathy Harris, Syndicated Columnist

July 6, 2022

Also read: How To Save Your Home

What to Do if You are Totally Out of Funds

Get A Job: If you have been laid off because of COVID or another reason, then apply for several jobs to make ends meet. Get 3 or 4 (or even 5 or 6) part-time jobs to make ends meet. 

The reason that many people won’t return to work is that they raised the amount of their unemployment benefits because of COVID — so many people make more sitting at home and drawing their unemployment benefits.

But you can’t just sit around at home when this money starts to run out. There are a ton of businesses with HELP WANTED SIGNS so go out and work full or part-time or just to obtain health insurance.

Everyone has to make sacrifices so if you are an ‘abled-bodied’ individual — without any type of disability – GO OUT and GET A JOB.

Apply for a Bank or Credit Union Loan: Many times banks or credit unions will give you a home improvement loan before they will give you a personal loan or some type of other loan — especially if you have a credit score of 650 or above. Therefore, apply for a loan to make ends meet.

Apply for Payday Loan: If you have a bank account, you should be approved for a payday loan of at least $150 to $200 or more — but you will have to pay back 30% to 40% of the amount you requested within a few weeks or the interest will continue to add up.

These loans are very problematic for many communities because they can keep you in a cycle of poverty.

Get a Title Loan: If you have the clear title to a vehicle you can get a loan for several hundred dollars. The amount probably depends on the shape and type of vehicle.

If you don’t make the payments, of course, you will lose the vehicle so again these types of loans can be problematic for many communities.

Reach Out to Family and Friends: Borrowing money from family and friends can be the best way to end up an outsider especially if you don’t pay back the funds. But if you are seriously at your wit’s end, then call your family and friends to try to get a loan.

If you have small children or if you have been trying your best, then chances are they might come to your rescue.

Reach Out to Food Banks: Some food bank lines today are getting longer and longer so don’t think that you will be able to go there every week and get foods. However, go to food banks if you are totally out of funds.

Some food banks will have plentiful supplies while others might not have much of anything. Most of the foods they hand out is processed because it will be in a package, box, bag, can, jar, or some type of other container.

Therefore, if you consume these foods for a sufficient amount of time, these GMO processed foods will make you sick. 

The goal is to keep searching for food banks while you seek out other sources of income. Keep in mind that many other families are also in need of food during these hard times so only go to these places on a temporary basis.

Reach Out to Churches: Churches like to see suffering because many of their leaders there are FREE Masons so many of them especially the larger ones are only there to receive your donations. Again, many enjoy seeing chaos and turmoil. 

Many Christians have left churches so churches are nothing now but indoctrination camps, just like TV’s, Schools, Colleges, and Universities.

But still see if you can get churches to help your family out because some are still Godly. They might be able to get a family to sponsor your family, give you funds or foods — especially if you attended the church before you ran out of funds so reach out to larger churches in your area.

Sell Personal Belongings, Foods, etc.: Initially you can hold a garage sale or several garage sales and get rid of personal items. You might be able to raise a few funds in this manner — but you need to look long-term.

You can sell what you already have growing in a garden or on your land. Sell extra foods you have stored or is growing in your garden or in crops. 

Purposely, plant foods just to sell them — so investigate what are some of the FAST GROWING foods for your area and get out there and plant it.

You can sell foods at local Farmer’s Markets, under a shade tree at weekly Community venues, or sell it on the side of the road — just like our ancestors did years earlier. 

Look at Your Skills or Talents and Make Items to Sell: Everyone has some type of talent or passion which is of value to others. Therefore, create a type of service or product to sell. Start sewing, crocheting, canning, or gardening businesses and sell your services and products.

People want to start growing foods but most don’t have any idea how to get started. You can come in and show them how to grow foods in pots, containers, raised beds or in the ground  — outside or even inside the kitchen or by using grow lights in another room. The sky is the limit!  

Check out and read my two gardening books at (click here). Also, read how to grow foods in an apartment (click here).

Tell Your Story and Ask for Donations Online: Go online and tell your story on or use these accounts to collect funds —, Venmo, Cash App, etc. 

There are many good, kind-hearted people that might help you out initially, but you need SOLID ACTION PLANS to take care of your family.

Just let them know you have other ACTION PLANS and you just need temporary help or funds to relocate the family to another side of the country. If you have small children then say so.

Learn more on filing bankruptcies from my first book in my 3-part empowerment book series – available as an ebook and paperback  — “How To Take Control of Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide to Empowering Your Family and the Entire Community (Series 1).”

Paying Your Monthly Bills: Most electric, gas, or water companies will allow you to pay a third or half of the bill if you call them and set up a ‘payment arrangement’. That will buy you some time to come up with the rest of the funds.

Car About to Be Repossessed: If you have a car and you know the notes are at least 3 months behind then you need to look at the fact that it will probably be repossessed. You can hide it in a garage or with a family member, but if they know where you work, they might come and get it on your job — unless you hide it on your job. 

If times are looking really hard where you are about to be homeless and about to lose your car, then move into your car and go west where there is good weather for living in your car. You can get odd jobs on the way. Read “How To Successfully Live in a Car” ( and “How To Save Your Home” (

Phase 1 and Phase 2 of My Van Build


Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3

No one goes into a house right away and says I want this house. Many people are even in a position to build out their houses so this is what I wanted to do with my Van.

Since I was going to be living in my Van for a minute, it was important for me to understand what was being done to her, so, therefore, I chose to do my ‘Van Buildout’ in Phases.

Phase 1: I added 2 Maxx Air Fans. I finally added Fan Covers so it’s dark inside because I chose the black instead of white color even though my van is white. The black fan covers match the black stripe on the side of the van and because of the 2 fan covers, I can also leave the fans opened for ventilation as I drive down the highway or when it’s raining.

Phase 2: I added 800 Watts of Solar to the roof then connected the wires on the Solar and Maxx Air Fans to the Power Box then connected the Power Box to the alternator under my front seat.

Phase 3: I am on my way to Texas over the next few weeks and a carpenter there is supposed to help with Phase 3 of my van build out but I am still conducting research on how I want it and trying to make sure the materials he will be using, especially for the insulation is not toxic.

I am still looking at the following that will complete Phase 3 of my van build – such as the insulation, floor and side paneling, cabinets, sink, bed frame, and garage/storage under the bed.

I will be buying the refrigerator, an Apicool when I reach Texas. I also need the front seat turned around, which will give me another seat to work at and I need the electrical port on the side of the van for plugging in at RV parks.

I am not sure yet whether I will cut the bed off and/or turn it sideways or keep it longways. The carpenter wanted me to throw it away and get a 6-inch foam mattress, even though it’s only a little over 2 years old. 

The bed is the reason I have enjoyed my van life up until now, therefore, he and I are in disagreement on this and this is why I might have to find someone else to help me with the completion of my van build, which might take many more months.

However, now that I have my power box, which means I can be on the computer and prepare my dinner in my steamer and blender at the same time — I am satisfied.

Finishing Up Phase 2 of Van Build

On Nov. 12, 2021, I just had a very awesome week finishing up Phase 2 of my van build in Flagstaff, AZ, which is a #GameChanger. I got pretty much all the power I need now in my van so I can retire my Jackery 500 and Portable Jackery Solar Panel — unless I use it for an outdoor reason.

It feels really good to be able to remove the Jackery 500 and Solar Panel after 2 years out of my front compartment and store it in the back of my van. It has always laid between my two seats so it’s nice having that extra space in my van to jump in and out of the front seat to the back of the van.

The new power box, which I put behind the front driver’s seat, has made it a priority to keep the area around it clear so this has freed up even more space in the front part of my van for working on the computer or even getting in the floor and exercising.

So far I am happy with the Aspen Power Box and 800 Watts of Solar that I bought from and once a mechanic nailed the Power Box and Inverter to the floor on a piece of plywood in case I have any type of spills, it all just seems to work out fine.

The Aspen Power Box is a substitute for using a smaller Jackery or another power box and it is also a substitution for building out an expensive “Battery Bank.” 

To install a Battery Bank in Vans — it can cost anywhere from $4000 to $8000 (with Parts and Labor), but since I opted to use the ‘All-in-one’ Aspen Power Box System instead, I saved thousands of dollars.

The ‘Power Box’ is powered in two fashions. Of course, once the sun goes down at night, the power box is no longer powered by my solar, but it is powered by the main source most of the day, which is my 800 watts of solar.

So, therefore, once the sun goes down or on gloomy or rainy days when the sun doesn’t come out, I can just crank the car to power up the box in minutes.

The solar is powered on the DC power of the Power Box and if I decide to put in electric lights — it will also be powered on DC power, but everything else is powered on AC power such as my phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, camera equipment, blender, steamer, ceiling fans, etc. so all I have to do is flip a switch when I want to use my AC power.

I will be using the pop-on lights instead of adding an electrical system for the lights because I have seen these go out too much on youtube shows. I will however like several plugins by my bed for my phone, tablet, computers, etc.

Top 3 Van Build Mistakes

The top 3 Van Build mistakes on youtube shows were:

1) Not buying a van you can stand up in.

2) Not installing two fans on the van.

3) Installing an air conditioner which took up the space for solar or a second fan.

Right now all van builders and carpenters are extremely busy especially because no one was working in 2019/2020 when I first went out on the road because of COVID. Now the wait for van build-outs is anywhere from 1 to 2 years — everywhere.

So understand I am not just a prepper but I am also a researcher. I research things before acting on them. Then I narrow everything down then make a decision.

The way I did my van build just allowed me the opportunity to see how everything was installed from the beginning to the end. I wanted to get to know my van (#StarShip) before having everything added. Surely you can understand that. After all, I am a prepper/planner. That is just how I am wired.

Tap Into Your ‘Spiritual Side’ for the Answers

Tap into Your ‘Spiritual Side’ for The Answers

I teach “Happiness” (My Happiness Project) for a living along with Health, Business, Minimalism, and other topics, and at the age of 65 — it has to be about being happy for me. If it is not going to make me happy then I am not doing it. It is as simple as that.

Whether you know it or not – everyone has a ‘Spiritual Side.’ Unlike many others, I am a “Spiritual” person and I have tapped into my “Spiritual Side.”

What you need to understand is I wasn’t able to find that pure joy and happiness that I needed to live out my life — until I sat back and studied what was the true meaning of ‘Spirituality’.

Spirituality can have a different definition for many people. For me, Spirituality is a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves. If you are still trying to learn more about “Spirituality” — attend community or online “Spiritual Meetings.”

For $25 a month, you can have 3 different groups. So, therefore, you can form these meetings yourself and this is a great way to become a part of a community.

My 20 Year Itinerary and Why I Love How I Live — #Nomadic

At 64 I am in the third tier of my life so I am closer to meeting my maker than I was 20 years ago. Therefore, everything I do must matter. Can I sustain a Nomadic lifestyle like this for the next 20 years? It all remains to be seen.

I wanted to write this blog post so that I could answer some questions that many interested parties might have about me.

Since my 21 months on the road — living and teaching from my van on the topics: 1) Natural Health/GMOs, 2) Business, 3) Minimalism, and 4) Happiness, many men have reached out to me.

Many men want a woman like me in their kitchen, living room, and especially their bedroom, but they need to understand up-front that that won’t be enough for me. 

I wanted them to see up-front my goals and ambitions for living this lifestyle so they would not distract me or waste their time pursuing me.  

Making Plans for the Future

My youngest daughter always tells me I make too many plans. However, I think it’s important for those around you to get a general idea of the direction you are going in, so they won’t think you have totally lost your mind.

Setting goals whether they are short-term or long-term to me is a very good thing. When I started this Nomadic lifestyle 21 months ago, my initial goal was to do this for the next 20 years.

Then my goal was to buy some land, a tiny house and grow some food and live out the rest of my life. In my 21 months, I would say that I am still on track to achieve my 20-year goal.

Whether it turns into a 5, 10, or a 15-year goal – that remains to be seen. If my life changes – it would have to be a significant reason for it.

Evaluate Your Current Situation

At 64 years of age, I am not the type of person that needs to be in a relationship to be happy.

I left my last relationship 2 years ago because I just did not like where it was headed. I had actually gotten off the road – traveling — very happy and content — living in nature — to be with this man. 

But when you get that #TravelingBug or #TravelingItch — something will have to give and for us — it was our relationship. 

A majority of the time my partner spent his time watching TV, especially CNN, instead of eating good foods, being active, and making plans to travel or be with me in nature.

I did not watch TV and wanted to be closer to nature traveling and it was so important to me at that point in my life that I live in this manner. It was as important to me as breathing in fresh air.

So, therefore, I left the 4-year relationship and moved to another city and one year later bought a van and started traveling in my new Nomadic lifestyle.

I have no regrets about my decision to move on. When you have outgrown a relationship and when you feel like you can no longer breathe in a relationship, either mentally, physically, or spiritually,  it is definitely time to move on.

The goal is not to have any regrets in your life, and you should never feel that you are wasting your life – because you are staying in a relationship that isn’t going anywhere. Life is just too precious.

Listen To What Potential Partners Say To You

When men tell you, they have traveled enough in their lifetime – believe what they say. They are telling you up-front how they really feel.

And if it is your plan to spend the foreseeable future traveling then you will not waste your time with potential mates — who are obviously not on the same page as you.

Sometimes you will get all of this from their first conversation. Do not linger for months! Try to have these conversations up-front. Conversations on the phone need to start – not just conversations online.

Listen to everything in the background especially his attempt not to even turn down the noise on the TV — while he speaks to you. This is a sign that this person spends the majority of their time watching TV.

And you have to ask yourself especially since you have found peace on the road – can you allow all this noise to occupy your thoughts and well-being again. The answer for me is an unequivocal ‘No’.

Why Men Do What They Do

Many men want a relationship but they are not willing to put in the work. At 64 I am ‘old school’ and I still believe that men should pursue women.

I was in the military for 3 and a half years and I worked with nothing but mostly men for over 25 years at U.S. Customs so I have spent a significant part of my life around men. Therefore, I understand many times how they feel about the opposite sex.

As a dating and love coach and author of “Love After 50: Love Questions from Dear Cathy After Hours,” I still watch a lot of men and I see how they pursue women. 

Men are very visual. They will watch you online and they especially are looking for full-body pics and/or videos of you.

If they like what they see, they will take it to the next stage to reach out online. The next step would be to ask for a number, but many will spend weeks approaching the opposite sex online instead of asking for a phone number.

And when they do get your number – all many want to do is text. There is nothing like hearing a person’s voice to determine if they are a potential match, but men have yet to pick up on this.

How Men Can Step Up Their A-Game and Find the Woman of Their Dreams

There are many good men out there and many good women so don’t give up hope. Because of 2020, many men now more than ever have become lazy when it comes to pursuing the opposite sex.

If they sat around for the better part of a year doing very little exercise and eating GMOs or Processed Foods, then these foods did nothing but turn off their brain and made them lazy.

The sooner they understand that and start taking the steps below – the quicker they will become a good, potential mate for that special woman.

Do the following daily:

-Smile more (Just like men like women to smile more — so do women so fellas show those pearly whites)  -Eat good, clean organic foods
-Drink good clean water
-Take daily supplements
-Exercise regularly
-Get plenty of rest
-Get plenty of sunshine
-Do regular detox programs
-Breathe in good air (Remove masks)

What Men Need To Know About Women

There are many potential things that men need to understand about women such as:

Let her breathe after a past relationship: Fellas if you are getting with her after she is just coming out of another relationship, it’s too soon. Let her breathe first. Try to find a way to stay in her life. Do small, little things for her to let her know you are there, but she is just not ready to fully commit after leaving another relationship.  

Don’t pull her away from her dreams: If she is traveling, or on a spiritual journey, or just doing something that she always wanted to do when you meet her, step back and try to meet her out there on the road. If you pull her off the road too soon or away from her dreams too soon, that is trouble down the line. She will always think about how you pulled her away from her dreams.

Take care of yourself first and foremost: The benefit of being with someone is that you both take care of each other. What is really attractive to women is men who take care of themselves — physically, mentally, and spiritually. Most women, especially seasoned women, biggest fear is having to be a ‘nursemaid’ to a man that she just met a few years earlier. Caregiving can cause major depression for a significant other so many women might walk away from you — especially if she just met you and you haven’t had a life-long commitment. 

-Be careful what to say in a relationship: Just remember that relationships take a lot of work and once one of you stop trying — the relationship is basically over. There will be quarrels and upsets in relationships, but the goal is to #FightFair and continue saying #KindWords to each other. Sometimes it’s no going back so watch what you say to each other because the other person will never forget what you said. Just remember that a  woman can and will walk away from a relationship when she is still in love with you. So again, #FightFair.  

Keep the romance department strong: All women like to be romanced — no matter what they tell you. Most like flowers, cards, other trinkets, etc. but mostly your affection and attention — so make sure you keep the romance department strong.  Plan nights to be alone or trips away together. Just keep showing her you appreciate her for being in your life. 

-Set her up an area in the home where she can relax: It doesn’t have to be a ‘she-room’, a spa in the other bathroom with a garden tub, but those would be nice accommodations to set up for her. Remember that women do so much in the home, therefore, they need a space where they can do yoga, meditation, listen to music, and just relax. The benefit is she will come back fulfilled and ready to please her man.  

Meeting Potential Partners on the Road

There are plenty of opportunities out there to meet potential partners on the road. The fact that they are traveling like you — as a Nomad — can be very attractive to a potential mate.

Read my article “Meet Someone On The Road.” I live on the road so for anyone to pursue me – they need to do more than to scroll up and down my online presence, reach out to me online, or even call me on the phone.

They need to meet me on the road or even travel with me on the road — in their own vehicle – of course.

Even though I say I will be on the road for the next 20 years, there are potential men that I would probably alter my lifestyle for and I will know when I meet that man.

Meanwhile, what is really attractive though is men who realize that I am not just living my best life on the road, but the way that I am living is why I am who I am and no matter what he does – if he tries to take this from me, he will never get the whole person.

What I Really Do On the Road

I don’t know if people even understand what I do out here on the road riding around the country in my van #StarShip — but it makes me so happy.

As the author of 26 non-fiction books at, parking in nature has allowed all my thoughts to flow freely again so not only do I have a great traveling blog at, but I have also started back working on non-fiction books again after giving up writing initially to do my videos on youtube at I post daily also to my Instagram page at

I initially came on the road to – 1) Meet family on the road, 2) Meet new friends on the road, 3) Do welfare checks on my family and friends on the road, 4) See beautiful attractions on the road, and to 5) Hold my health and business seminars and workshops on the road.

The year 2020 altered many things in my life but many times it sent me in directions that brought even more happiness into my life.

Hopefully, starting in a few months when I get to Vegas and once my van is built out by the end of winter 2022, I can get back on track and continue to create a beautiful Nomadic life for myself — with my ‘face-to-face’ seminars and workshops.

There is nothing like seeing people’s eyes light up, especially young people when they realize they can change their own lives.

Other activities which are extremely important to me as I follow 70-degree weather and move in and out of areas around the country in my 2019 Dodge Ram Promaster 3500 Cargo Van — include understanding the culture of the areas that I am visiting by going to art galleries, libraries, museums and seeing other attractions, along with attending fitness gyms and classes, spas, hot springs, hotels with saunas, parks, going on walking and hiking trails especially up mountains, and close to oceans, lakes, and rivers — and once I get the van built out, I am even thinking about buying a bicycle.

For inspiration, I make it a point to do FREE disperse camping and stay on and National Forest land and wake up in nature surrounded by oceans, lakes, and rivers, and especially mountains. I am still trying to figure out if I am #TeamMountain or #TeamBeach, but I am having fun doing it.

The sky is the limit when you live an active Nomadic lifestyle. This lifestyle can help you be your healthiest self yet — whether you are traveling this life solo or with a partner. All you have to do is embrace your life and count your blessings.
