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 had a lovely finish to our visit with Mimi. Sean was in Boston this week on business, so all of us girls…and Quirtle…were left to ourselves to see what we could get into in the Portland area. We started … Continue reading
Ok, the big unveiling…our new favorite travel accessory of sorts…Harvest Hosts. We recently heard about this from a fellow traveler’s blog and decided to join. Here’s the low down: You pay $40 to join for the year and are given … Continue reading
Sean’s mom (Mimi) has joined us once again for an adventure! Sean will be doing a post soon to tell about the day leading up to her arrival in San Jose, CA. Good story. Wait for it… So we picked … Continue reading
This is how our trip to Yosemite began. It was 106 degrees when we said goodbye to RJ in Fresno. The combo of high temps and steep climb to our campground made Mack an unhappy bus. He started to overheat … Continue reading
