Hello, fren. It's been a while. And by while we mean well over a year. A YEAR. "What the heck?! I thought we were cool. Why'd you disappear on us like that?!"
All valid questions. We decided to take some time and make some important decisions regarding the future of our travel. In truth, the road beat us up a little bit. We were exhausted. We were frustrated. We needed to figure out what we wanted without constantly being on the go.
So, with that said....
We sold Maude.
Now, before you start throwing up your hands and shouting, hear us out. Maude went to a very loving owner and is being well cared for by her new travel mom. We settled down in Austin, Texas for the year in order to map out our next steps for getting back on the road. Because that's ultimately what we've always planned on doing, getting back on the road but on our own terms, new terms that had since changed since initially starting this journey four years ago.
With that said, we've decided to tackle two separate projects, a van conversion and a bus conversion, in order to have two different spaces on the road but still retain the ability to travel together.
Vanessa is going to be converting a 2006 Ford E450 shuttle bus into a house on wheels and I am converting a 2008 Dodge Sprinter Van. Two separate spaces that each represent our own individual style, but also two shared spaces. Vanessa's rig is going to house the bathroom and big sitting spaces (and the cats...more on that later) and my van is going to house the bed and the kitchen.
We cannot wait to share with your these photos, these experiences, and these builds. Living in a van has been something that I have been gearing up for for a while now and it's going to be one heck of an adventure. We'll be sharing our processes for each of our builds, as well as our supplies used, and then once we get back on the road, sharing our travels again as well. It'll be an entirely new experience, but we can't wait for you to tag along with us.
Until next time...
