Pschitt happens

Pschitt (Claude) happened upon my neighborhood yesterday. He's been in East Tn. exploring a bit and sent me a PM so we met for lunch yesterday. His van is AWESOME and he is quite a nice dude as well. Looks like he is going to be exploring North and South America for the next several years so several of us are likely to meet up with him. I gave him lots of good spots to boondock and sight see so he will probably be off the grid (and the forum) for a few days. Hopefully he will update us in a few days with some pics and updates.
If any of you are able to 'host' him or just meet up I strongly recommend it. He is a super nice guy and a true world traveler.
Here he is with the beast Viva La Vida

and here's a funny shot of a sandwich of sorts. When we walked back from lunch my wife's boss just so happened to be getting in her car after lunch too. She drives a little Honda CR-Z. She had no idea it was me (and Claude) but we all had a laugh about the tiny car between the huge vans

Good times and meeting great people like Claude are 2 things I love about the forum.

Re: Pschitt happens

Thanks for your nice welcome Eric. I really enjoyed meeting you and seeing your van. I went to some of the spots you adviced me. Nice dirt roads, some remote places, not crowded at all, exactly what I like. :-) Thank you so much for that!

Here are some picture of this beautiful eastern Tennessee:
