We’ve been buying bottled water for a while as we live in places where the water is a little less than savory. It’s fine but I get tired of all the containers carting around and the waste they generate. We used those pay water filling stations a bit with a larger bottle, but having to […]

New Mexico to Mississippi
New Mexico to Mississippi was flat! Texas was an even flatter flat. Don’t mess with Texas – it’s huge.
Some of the pictures from our stay in Corralles, NM (Adjacent to Albuquerque) Yes I got the breaking bad doughnut – I couldn’t help it. Vanessa and Denver if you read this, thank you so much for letting us stay – it really helped build confidence and give us a stepping off point. Skoolie life […]

I know it’s a bit exploratory – working full remote is uncommon in our organization, but I feel like what I’ve been doing for a while now is to help teams communicate effectively with tools and processes […]
Sold House, Have To Go Somewhere Else
We sold the house that was (sort of) purposely bought to finish the bus mid September. For a bit, we bummed around in front of our friends houses for a few days to get some things sorted, but eventually we found it was time to go. It’s crazy how our stuff kept following us around […]
Front Axle Spring Bushings
Something that had been wrong on our bus since we bought it was a funny clunk when turning corners, usually at an intersection. It was coming from the front end, and after a little investigation I determined that the spring pins and bushings were completely trashed, especially the passenger side ones. There was a large […]
