What's a gg bear?

Fair question: gg bear is me…

Much like naming my cat, when it came to naming this blog – I panicked. I had high hopes – wanting something super clever & catchy. So naturally what popped in my mind was not that.

“Greta Bear” & other variations of that were nicknames of mine growing up. So I settled on “gg bear.” 

And since I’m still going for “catchy” I figured I’d throw a rhyme in there… 

BUT, not a lot of van-related things rhyme with bear. However – since I’m traveling with both a cat & a dog -> the van is their LAIR (get it?!) (I had to double check that lair really does mean habitat. (I guess it also means a burial plot in a graveyard….)).

 So, I settled on: gg bear & the van lair. 

(other suggestions welcome, but also then I’d have to change this blog name & it was hard enough setting up a website to begin with…) 

And what's going on here?

Also a great question…

I’m taking my little converted van on a road trip. TBD for how long (8ish months?) & TBD exactly where (“out east” -ish?), BUT I thought I’d document my travels in some way. And since I have zero chance at being an IG influencer – a blog seemed like a good spot to start? 

AND since I’m on a mission to find the best ice cream everywhere I go + get normal to sponsor me: I’m also writing ice cream reviews, and comparing them to normal. So, yes more probably 75% of this blog is going to be ice cream reviews…
