    I have permission from Rick Siemen http://articles.superhunky.com/bio/Rick Sieman to post articles he wrote in the 80s called the Wanderers. I highly recommend buying the CD from him (he's a crusty, old guy but pretty cool as well) for all important occasions - bar mizpahs, weddings, funerals, or as a present to yourself. Interspersed through this thread, I'll post up his stories. The entire concept - traveling around in a Suburban with all the comforts of home appeals to me - and when I was a teenager (when these were published the first time), was the other thing I dreamt of besides girls.
    But first, my version of this.

    1985 Suburban K20, 6.2 diesel, ATS turbo. No rust, lots of three-handed-inbred-mods, but a truck someone cared a great deal about before and totally worthy of giving it new life as my RV. My goal is great-running-condition-so-I-can-flat-tow-my-fj40 to the NW Overland Rally in June of this year. More specifically that means a rack, fixing the THIMs (aka Bubba mods), a kitchen/refrig/water tank/sink/bed inside, putting on my awning, getting the rat smell out, and hopefully having the solar system in place.

    I do simulcast the bones of these posts, so you will see similar posts on other sites - I do tend to tweak them for the site it's being posted on..... without further ado, pictures are the next post.
