Living with No Place to Call Home

Into The Rabbit Hole.

About every few months it seems as though the world throws all of our plans, our ideas, and our doormat up into the air. When our things land, everything has changed.

We hop from place to place, dreams to realities, house-sitting, van dwelling, to motorhome life, and back again. It seems as though we’ve jumped into a rabbit hole, feet first.

An Interview with RV Life Magazine. Our Story, “The Simple Life.”

Step inside ’cause it’s cozy in here and we can’t wait to show off our good lookin’ old bus and tell you our story.

Even though we were in the warm January desert, surrounded by the open Anza Borrego landscape, our eighty square foot living room ended up being the ideal spot for our story to unwind. Rene Agredano, writer for RV Life Magazine and half of the Live Work Dream Team, stepped into our old bus and this is what she discovered about us.

How You Can Turn Dinosaur Mechanics Into A Path for Simpler Living

January started with a bang and then just about fizzled out before we had a chance to say goodbye.

We moved back into our bus after being estranged from it for over six months. Wasting no time we headed out to the desert for a New Years Eve celebration with a junket of rambling friends. Life couldn’t get much better as we kicked off the upcoming year, until of course, we were stopped dead in our tracks.

By the end of January, our one week of boondocking in the desert had turned into an unexpected three week adventure and education. The abrupt change of plans would end up granting us a clearer perspective into the path for simpler living we seek. But we didn’t realize this at that moment. And just like that tall creamy glass of Guinness beer that changed our course last winter, we kissed our well laid plans goodbye once again and cleared room for what was to come.

Chapter CY2: Our First Cross Country Vintage Bus Road Trip

Damn skippy we made it.

From our wild ride on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in New York, down the mountainous Blue Ridge Parkway, across tornado alley, and over the Hoover dam– we soaked up, survived and surrendered over 4,000 miles together on this cross country road trip.

Lubricating this road trip was our deluxe accommodations; our new vintage 1978 Bluebird Wanderlodge bus with our Honda Civic in tow. Making the journey spectacular was our visitors and visits along the way. We arranged sleep overs, and play dates, hitchhikers, new acquaintances, and reunions. Now, we hang out a bit longer, pack our cupboard with unnecessary amounts of spoils for sharing, and even take mini road trips (on top of our main road trip), in the car to expand our local reach – it’s freakin’ awesome.
