SAY HELLO TO THE LILLS!
After traveling in our 1978 VW Bus for over 2+ years, life led us to a 1961 GM Bus in the New Mexico desert. We’re now converting it into a home on wheels!
Come along with us, as we educate ourselves and share alternative views on life, love, energy, food and travel.

While on our winter adventure in Colorado, we experienced a very odd week, where a handful of people lost their lives in different ways. We were reminded that life is happening now and it can come to a close at any time. We both agreed that we can do a better job at...read more
Cashew butter is such an amazing product, but it can be expensive and full of hidden additives. Transforming cashews (1 simple ingredient) into a delicious, healthy cashew butter is so easy to do! The bonuses are, there are no additives, it’s loaded with raw...read more
Our VW bus, Moksha, still gets us around with an old-fashioned carburetor. Carburetors are all about air and fuel mixture, so something as unseemly as a dirty filter can have an affect on his overall performance. After a few thousand miles, the air filter on top of...read more
A man we met in Colorado said that back in the day, police officers were your friends. You’d stroll around town and they’d wave to you with a smile on their faces. They carried a sense of peace, they were your neighbor and they acted as part of the...read more
When the two of us wake up super early, before the sun comes up, our tummies are not ready for a heavy meal. Instead, we pack a bunch of nutrients, good oils and antioxidants into a delicious green smoothie for two! The coconut flakes on top promote chewing, which...read more

In nature, animals often use power poses to display dominance and intimidation. Maybe you’ve heard of humans using similar power poses (like hands on the hips) to display strength. Power poses have become a self-help trend to override feelings of insecurity and...read more
We can’t imagine too many people appreciating an old hubcap as a gift, but we were blown away when new friends surprised us with one! We were told that moon hubcaps were the inspiration for baby moon hubcaps, which people used for their hot-rods and roadsters...read more
When in need of a boost, the two of us grab one of our homemade power bites. Our bites are made of simple, super-healthy ingredients like, ground flaxseed, almond flour, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, cashews and they are sweetened only with organic maple syrup. They taste...read more
In today’s world, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. Television, movies, magazines, books, products, advertising, the news, the internet, governments and most of the people around us, teach by example that lying is okay and even cool or funny. Taking...read more
The two of us love cooking for ourselves and each other. We create memories, we create delicious meals and we get to put our own energy into the food we make and eat. We favor eating small portions of healthy snacks throughout the day (that require little to no...read more
Some people say that VW buses will always drip a little oil, but with proper seals, parts and installation, a VW bus motor shouldn’t leave that unwanted breadcrumb trail of drip marks. After the complete motor overhaul on our 1978 Volkswagen Westfalia, there...read more
Earth is an electrical organism. It is just as alive as we are and when we walk around barefoot, we can feel the tingles and sensations of being grounded and connected. They now call it “Earthing”, but it’s what every land animal experiences...read more
