One Chick Travels - Katie Paulson
Vans name: Pam
Type of Van: 2003 Chevy Astro
Occupation: Climbing Instructor and server/bartender
Reason for travel: Wanted to work less, travel to more places in the US (climbing specific) and was looking for fulfiling community.
Time living in the van: 1.5 years in a Subaru, 1.5 years in the Chevy Astro!
Favorite Destinations: Indian Creek in the fall and spring, Washington alpine in the summer, Bugaboos. INDEX... duh
Word of advice: Don't be afraid to put yourself out there, I have never felt more capable, independent and safe than I have out and about on the road. I have met so many amazing people that I cant imagine my life without. Also, don't use tinder to find climbing partners.
