My name is Randy Primm. I am 27 year old filmmaker from Seattle Washington. I am traveling the country in Betsy my 24ft Class C RV. Betsy is equipped with Solar Panel on the roof and an inverter under the bed to allow me power whenever I need some.

Along for the ride is Bird my 15 year old feline companion. She doesnt need much and from time to time she even offers to drive. Bird has lived with me since the day she was born and soonhopefully very soon she will say her first words. And Hopefully those first words will be ROAD BANDIT FOR LIFE!!!
