He now lives with his wife at Highland Farms in Black Mountain, North Carolina, a retirement community in the Swannanoa Valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

They maintain a three-mile section of the Mountains-to-Sea trail near the Blue Ridge Parkway for the CMC and are involved in several other volunteer activities. They stay in shape by swimming several times a week at nearby Warren Wilson College. They are members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of AshevilleVan Diver continues to gain new understanding of the complex geology of his part of the Appalachians, and attempts, through teaching courses, to spread that knowledge.
