Dandelion Odyssey – America on a shoestring

By John Guy LaPlante

I used to drive, oh boy did I drive. In 1993, my trusty Dandelion took me on an Odyssey all over the United States – on a shoestring!

I bought a used Volkswagen minibus camper – a nice sunny yellow, so I dubbed it “Dandelion” and began crisscrossing the country.

I wrote a column about my solo travels in the Worcester Sunday Telegram.

A few of those stories are included below.
