Hey 👋 Friends. We’re still here! It’s been hotter than HECK where we are so days working on the bus have been few and far between the last month or so. We’ve also been adjusting to some life changes that have happened here recently, and are settling into our new routine. We’ve had some people ask if we still have Belle and if our plans are still the same because of the new changes, and the answer is a whole hearted YES. Belle is still our dream that we are working towards DAILY. Thanks for hanging on while we wait around for cooler weather 🌸🍁and get settled into our new adventures 🚌💛
Laundry day is always so much fun! 😅 •
Lol just kidding... it’s probably one of our least favorite things. & living on the road without a “real” washing machine can be costly if you go to a laundry mat. •
That’s why we bought this awesome portable washer before moving into our #tinyhouse ! It’s pretty easy too; all we have to do is stuff in clothes, add water & detergent, and spin! Then we hang our clothes to dry after they’re clean. •
Not only does it save us $$, but it also uses way less water & electricity compared to the average washing machine. So, it’s a win-win for us & the environment 👏🏼💚
We built some storage compartments for the garage area of the van! This will fit the 33 gallon fresh water tank, our fridge on slides, tools, folding chairs, and other random things. This is the same height as the bed frame so it will provide two more spots to support the bed.
Now we have to cut a hole in the front of the bed support for the fridge slide!
93 degree weather: 0
It was worth it though 🍫
We made camp tonight at a cute little campground right by the beach, that’s usually booked solid till September, but Micheal called randomly to check for availability and they had 1 opening due to a cancellation. Now we’re sitting by a camp fire and totally. Loving. Life.
Two under 2 sharing a room. Too excited not to share!.... still need one more piece and this room will be done. 😁🎉
Oh, you’re taking a picture? This is my good side. .
Busco is a photo bomber for sure! I moved him away several times before getting the shot I actually wanted. 😂🤷🏻♀️ who can be mad at such a handsome boy! .
Leave us some tips and tricks for traveling with a four legged friend! 👇🏻👇🏻
actual footage of me manifesting the completion of our RV couches...
Y’all...the progress on building these couches has been laggggging. In all fairness, we’ve gotten a million other important things taken care of in the last three weeks. Just didn’t plan on driveway camping this long. Plus, I’m so anxious to see everything come together already...and IDK, maybe hit the road again sometime soon 🤷🏼♀️
Sorry to all the people that we told we would be traveling around the northeast coast this summer, including myself 😭😭
In all seriousness, I’m trying to find a balance between planning our travels and going with the flow. On one hand, I have this bucket list of places I want to experience and this mentality of “you never know what tomorrow could bring” and so, we better get right to it! And then on the other hand, it’s...well, this is the lifestyle we’ve chosen, and so we can take it slow and go with the flow. One thing I’ve learned for sure is not to let a change of plans get you down, because that will almost always happen. LOL it’s a little easier said than done sometimes. If you’re a full time RV’er, what’s your mentality? How do you determine your travel plans and pace for traveling?
Also, now accepting guesses for when you think we’ll get off this island...drop ‘em⬇️⬇️⬇️ because your guess is as good as mine🙃🙃🙃
“Getttter’ done, boy!”
When we worked full-time Logan's regular schedule was 12-9pm.
There were two days a week that offered us the possibility of seeing the sunset together.
As we are parked up on the Atlantic Coast watching the sunset before the fog rolls in, I feel #gratitude. I just had the realization that we have seen the sunset together (or come close to setting) almost every day for the past two years (weather permitting)🌅. .
While we were enjoying this magic moment strolling on the beach, the beautiful sky and peaceful sound of waves rolling in were lost on Holly, who was sincerely pissed about not being allowed in the water....✨
Another flashback to a year ago, when we had to go on a crazy mission to finally acquire our license plates!
🇬🇧 Off we go! Test roadtrip started today. Pictures of the finished van are coming. Her name is chosen and we will soon properly announce it.
We are thrilled to finally be on the road. To celebrate we watched the sunset on the beach and shared a Corona.
Funny thing about Corona, a few years ago Renato showed me a commercial about this beer: a van parked on the beach, friends drinking Coronas. "Miles away" by Years Around the Sun playing. This is it and we can't quite believe it.
E aqui vamos nós! A roadtrip de teste começou hoje. Fotos da carrinha terminada estão para vir. O nome dela está escolhido e em breve faremos um post em condições a anunciá-lo.
Estamos muito felizes por estarmos finalmente na estrada. Para celebrar, vimos o pôr-do-sol na praia e partilhámos uma Corona entre os dois.
História engraçada sobre a Corona. Há uns anos o Renato mostrou-me um anúncio a esta cerveja: uma carrinha estacionada na praia, amigos a beberem Coronas. A música "Miles away" dos Years Around the Sun a tocar. Isto está mesmo a acontecer e nós não conseguimos acreditar.
If you’ve never been to the east coast of Canada ..... what are you waiting for.
