This is a 3-part series I’m putting up on The Shelter Blog here.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

One Response to My Camping Vehicles, Part 1

  1. When I was younger, my boyfriend had a light blue bug that we took down to Baja quite a bit. His Mom had a trailer at Ensenada we used to crash in, and his dad (they were divorced) had one in San Felipe, but he wasn't as free with use. We also drove all over and camped along the way. Those were the days! – Margy
