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.

Back in November 2013 we spent a month in Wilmington, NC visiting friends because we knew it would be about a year before we made it back to that part of the country. While we were there we heard of … Continue reading
Since we have been here in San Antonio, I’ve been busy. The list of things to be done to our new home is long and it is rare that we find ourselves in a place that not only has the … Continue reading
The new year arrived, blew by us and already it is February. Its hard to believe we have been at this for eight months already. We initially thought we were going to do this for a year or possibly two … Continue reading
We’ve reached the Bermuda triangle of full-time bus life. It’s called Texas 281 RV Park. Be careful if you ever come ’round these parts–you just might get sucked in and never leave. We figured out that we can walk … Continue reading
While Sean had his event going on here in San Antonio, we ended up staying with him a couple of nights because the temps here dropped overnight into the teens. When we started the trip, we really thought we’d chase … Continue reading
We’ve been enjoying the greater San Antonio area the past few weeks. The food has been great, the people friendly and the weather pretty nice with the exception of a few below freezing nights. We just stayed with Sean at … Continue reading
I have exactly one enduring friendship from my high school days. It’s the first friend I made in ninth grade, actually. We met on the tennis courts at Boone High School in Orlando, FL. I think there was just this … Continue reading
