Colorful Colorado 💘
Last night we slept at a Bass Pro Shop outside of Colorado Springs where we experienced this awesome sunset. Parking lot camping can get old real quick though so we’re headed for some BLM in the mountains tonight 🔥

We are only a few days away from the @unitedtinyhouse festival! This event is really special to us because we’ve attended every year they’ve had the event in FL. The first year we went with no bus (bought ours a week later). Two years ago we went with our empty shell of a bus...we had insulation, ceiling, and floors. Last year we went with our completed bus (2 weeks before we officially moved in). And this year we are going with almost one year of bus life in the books! Swipe to see how our bus has looked the previous years at this event👀➡️❗️

Wow what a gorgeous concept 😍 can’t wait to see the finished product 😍 gorgeous build by @recycleinn
All in a days work 💪🏼
Here’s what we’ve been up to... Our Sub floor is down, and we’re starting to frame out our wheel-wells.
We stayed up to about midnight making all of our cuts and pocket holes.. only to decide that we wanted to use a thicker cut of wood for more support.
Yeah, you read that right. We made a total of 34 cuts only to cut 34 more 😹 but in the long run... this is our HOME. We don’t want to take shortcuts! 🙅🏻♀️🙅🏻♂️
Items used: A lot of patience, 2x2, 1 1/4 screws, @kregjig pocket hole jig, @ryobitoolusa jigsaw, and a hand-me-down @dewalttough drill from my papas 👴🏻
I’ve always been especially non-committal to anything that could impact my ability to travel long-term. I viewed boyfriends and traveling as an ultimatum: one or the other. Therefore I’d accepted being alone, and that was fine by me.
I met Ladi while on a solo trip to New Zealand. He was living/traveling in a campervan, and I was a 23 year old backpacker who was instantly drawn to vanlife. I had no solid plan, a tight budget, and was in need of a ride to a nearby campsite. As two strangers, we drove onwards exchanging pleasantries, all the while I couldn’t pronounce his Czech name.
We quickly decided to spend two weeks camping together, and in those two weeks we weren’t apart for more than a couple hours.
I can’t believe the odds of finding him, bumping into such a stranger, and those odds repeated themselves in how we found Millie. In the same way I doubted a boyfriend, I doubted a pet. I thought she’d weigh down our lifestyle, but we’ve learned she craves the outdoors just as we do.
Sometimes I lose my breath remembering our trio could’ve easily never happened. If I’d been five minutes later on the road, I wouldn’t have bumped into Ladi. If we’d pulled over a mile further on the beach, Millie would still be eating out of a dumpster. The gratefulness I have for them is indescribable. I genuinely cannot imagine my life involving anyone else.
The reason I didn’t want a boyfriend or a pet was to travel, but traveling is what brought me to them. If you do what you’re most passionate for, you’ll find your family along the way. They’ll see you on your journey and want in on the adventure, too.

Sometimes you need to exchange wheels for feet to access the more remote places of this world ❄️
Van life isn’t over when you have a family, just ask @afamwithavan@sowewent & @rosenesontheroad
Wether it’s full time, part time or just on the weekends, life on the road has some serious benefits to a growing family. 👨👩👧👦👨👩👧👨👩👧👦🚐

I think it’s surprising to some people how much we love our tiny home on wheels! Yesterday I had some alone time, and I spent it hanging out with this view.
But I think people forget that this is our home. It’s where I feel comfortable and cozy. I like to relax in my own space, especially when you get to choose the view❤️ Where do you like to relax?

[EN below] Salut! On est Catherine, David et Osso. On est parti du Québec il y a 562 jours afin de rouler dun bout à l’autre de l’Amérique, de l’Alaska jusqu’à l’Argentine. En date d’aujourd’hui, on a fait 50 665km et on est dans notre 13e pays, le Pérou! On pense arriver à Ushuaia, la toute fin du continent, quelque part en avril. Par la suite, on croit monter vers l’Uruguay, puis envoyer Octave en conteneur jusqu’au... Mexique! On prendra un avion avec Osso pour aller le rejoindre, puis on roulera tranquillement vers le Canada. Qu’est-ce qu’on va faire après? On en a aucune idée! C’est ça la beauté du voyage, ça l’ouvre des portes à plein de possibilités! Des questions pour nous? N’hésitez-pas en commentaires! 🙂
// Hello! We are Catherine, David and Osso. We left Quebec 562 days ago to drive from one end of America to the other, from Alaska to Argentina. As of today, we made 50 665km and we are in our 13th country, Peru! We expect to arrive in Ushuaia, the very end of the continent, somewhere in April. Subsequently, we will drive up to Uruguay, then send Octave in container to... Mexico! We will take a plane with Osso to join him, then we will slowly drive back to Canada. What are we going to do next? We have no idea! That's the beauty of the trip, it opens doors to tons of possibilities! Questions for us? Do not hesitate in comments! 🙂
I did not start drinking coffee until 4 years ago when I started my corporate sous chef job. I hated the taste. (I am also left handed, dislike chocolate and have not seen game of thrones in full 😶) The main reason for joining the caffeine game was because I was getting to work at 7am sometimes 6am and working straight through until 8-9pm, sometimes even staying through until 2am to manage front of house closers, 5-6 days a week. The taste of coffee was not my cup of tea (🤓) but I quickly had to find the taste appealing in order to supplement my lack of energy for each work day, not to mention my lack of fulfillment while there.
What was once an obligatory fix has now become a sacred morning routine that Abi and I enjoy thoroughly together. There is something about waking up, pulling back the shade and seeing a completely new scenery each day, and having a humble cup of joe with my partner in crime.
I now enjoy the mornings and feel blessed to appreciate how coffee has come full circle for me.
Sincerely, Nat ⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Throwback to what our van looked like a year ago.. It looks so cold and empty compared to now.. It's still cold, but we're installing an Espar heater soon!
When I was growing up, close friends and family always made fun of my dirty feet. I would run bare foot through the neighborhood to my friends’ houses and play outside for hours once I got there. My hair was always tangled and my nails were always darkened from the dirt underneath. Makeup was foreign and products didn’t exist. Appearance was a concept I didn’t even consider. But then I got to high school and everything changed. I started getting embarrassed by their judgement. I started wearing makeup because I became convinced I was ugly without it. I spent money on fake nails so people would stop calling me a “tom boy”. I ruined my hair with bleach to be as blonde as possible… I think maybe I’m so happy now because I feel more like a kid than I have in years. I run barefoot with my dogs and they never care about my dirty feet. I wash my hair when I wash my hair and no one is here to tell me to brush it. I do yoga mid hike and walk away with the same darkened nails I had back then. Self care looks different for us all and mine has nothing to do with what I look like anymore. I take care of myself now in ways that matter to me. Your child self was likely right all along. Judgement from others always fades and does nothing but confuse you about who you really are. And maybe next time you jokingly poke fun at a friend’s appearance, think about how it could impact them. Never be the person to change someone else. Try running barefoot beside them instead or just step out the way while they do.
