Welcome to our Log. We started this blog in 2012 to chronicle the adventures of a family of six as we sell everything and move onto a converted bus for a while. The house finally sold and we are on our way!
Our family made the decision to do away with most of our ties to “normal” life. We scaled down, sold off nearly all our stuff (including our house) in exchange for freedom. Changing our paradigm (and maybe yours too!) of walking in faith, the meaning of ‘success’, and what we want to pour into our children. Focusing now on what is most important to us–loving and serving God and people. We have been blessed with the opportunity to take a bus that has been converted into a mobile living space and adventure for a while. Trusting that God will lead us as we learn to slow down, simplify, and enjoy the scenery as we meander along in all that we do.
We were very much looking forward to attending the annual New Year’s Eve bus rally in Arcadia, FL. It had been three years since we had rolled through the gates with a pop-up trailer (received warmly none-the-less), so it was … Continue reading
The Stage: Wekiwa Springs State Park, Florida The Characters: Five full-timing families. Some had met once or twice over the past year. Most had never laid eyes on each other. All very different backgrounds and personalities. None of them … Continue reading
Not gonna lie…it’s hard to start writing here again after not doing so for a couple months. I’ve been sitting here at the screen wondering where and how to begin. October and November found us back near San Antonio at … Continue reading
Bus life is full to the brim with oddities! Actually, when you think about it, simply living on a bus is odd in and of itself. Fortunately for me though, I don’t think about it too much. To me bus … Continue reading
We’d been stationary for so long that I forgot the thrill of being on the road. Crossing over state lines and cheering when we see the “Welcome to ______!” sign…getting rocked to sleep in my bed at the … Continue reading
Remember that time we helped put up hay? Well, Mr. Pollman (the owner of said hay) has a tradition of taking the hay crew members on a camping trip as a way of expressing his thanks. When we came back … Continue reading
When we left North Carolina to travel the country in a bus, we left a pretty awesome church family. These weren’t just people we saw on Sunday as we checked off the “Went to Church” box on our to-do … Continue reading
We went back for a 2nd helping of the folks of Randle, WA. Didn’t get enough of them the first time. Going backward 500 miles in our journey that was headed in a southeastern direction would have seemed crazy to … Continue reading
Between Sean being gone for ten days and then being captives of Lou’s Garage for longer than we anticipated, we only had one day to do Glacier National Park. So we took that day by the horns and rode it … Continue reading
While on one of our bike rides through the farm land of Ronan, MT we met and had a lengthy conversation with one of the neighbors. She happened to be the owner of the horses we had been admiring earlier … Continue reading
