Mike started the "Astrolander" (Astro-Overlander) project in 2009, just after Annika was born. A family friend told the story of a family-reunion camping trip where all the teenagers complained because they were missing their XBoxes. Mike immediately realized the solution was to get Annika hooked early, and keep the fires lit. The Chevrolet Astro was chosen as a happy "middle ground" between the iconic but aging Westfalia Volkswagen and the large and expensive Sportsmobile and similar modern adventure van. Done almost entirely as a DIY "Home Build", our Astrolander has been a budget solution and brought us much joy!
