Museum of Vanning

On the off day, The Frozen Foursome visited the Museum of Vanning in Hudson, FL. In all honesty, I had no idea such a place existed, but the museum dedicated to the van life style is currently moving into new digs.

The museum is the result of decades of collecting van related items. We stopped by so that The Curator could relay some words of wisdom regarding the world of museums, and the rest of us gave advice based on our own life skills. I have no idea if anything we said was of use to the museum staff, but I do wish them luck. They are obviously passionate in what they are doing, which should be commended.

Bricks for Vans

If you have fond memories of your time in a shag carpet lined Econoline, or just like vans in general, their website is
One can also sponsor a brick, which can have your name, logo, or favorite van likeness embossed on it. Any bricks purchased are tax deductible, and will go to supporting this unique museum.

Personally, I’m more of an Overlander, but I’m sure the van community is its own unique cult which has its own supporters. If you are a member, give their site a look.
