Crossing to Mexico… And then back to the US

So we got up Monday morning to cross the border, hoping to make it to campground known for climbing located outside of Monterrey, Mexico by mid-day optimistically. We were out of the state park by 9:30 this morning, stopped for gas and so forth and headed towards bridge 2. For the last few days we…

Washing off the road dust

So we are sitting in Laredo, TX waiting to cross the border in the morning. We decided to take a couple of days to finally take care of some housekeeping. It seems like a long time since I last wrote but in reality it has been just about a week. We’ve done a lot and…

It’s warm in the South

We arrived in Asheville hoping to spend a few days hanging out, connecting with like minded folk and it didn’t quite turn out that way. Apparently, we are not cool enough to stand out in Asheville. Don’t get me wrong, we enjoyed our time there and definitely would like to go back and visit but…

Bus video- Exterior

Busy, busy, busy

So, I’m behind on my updates. Trevor finished up all our plumbing. While it was very cold, he crawled around under the bus and installed our water tanks and intake valve. Inside we plumbed the kitchen sink, the washing machine and the tub (a shower head). This will all draw from a clean water tank…

Checking things off the list

So our mattress arrived and the bedroom is pretty much finished.Trevor installed almost all of the trim and it is starting to look very homey in there. I need to make us some curtains to give us a little privacy and maybe we’ll make some end tables but overall that is one more thing that…
