Our Van Named Morrison

(Van) Morrison is a 1999 AWD GMC Safari. Mattea found the van for sale on the side of the road in Rockland, Maine when traveling for her previous job. After being discouraged after constant searching for vans for MONTHS and setting alerts on Craigslist, Uncle Henry’s, and Facebook Marketplace, who knew we’d find our van on the side of the road!

After a weird coincidence with the sellers being neighbors with my Aunt and Uncle in a small coastal town in Maine, we all met in Rockland during an ice storm in January 2023 to test drive it and purchase it. It was so exciting!
