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.

Follow along as we convert our vintage 1961 GM Fishbowl bus into a home & design studio on wheels!
The two of us found so much joy, living on the road in our old VW bus for over 2 years. With only 80 square feet of space, we learned to live in the now and embrace simplicity, but not having a toilet or shower proved to be most difficult. By the time we reached the...read more
When the bus arrived, we had it delivered to a local diesel mechanic shop. They inspected the GM bus from top to bottom and everyone seemed impressed. They recommended that we take it over to another nearby shop that could handle a few small fixes, more affordably. A...read more
After days in the desert, working on getting our 1961 GM “New Look” bus running, the secondary fuel filter kept running dry. We took a closer look at the fuel system and began clearing all the fuel lines with an air compressor. One of the last return lines...read more

It’s not often you see a cat on a leash, or sticking it’s head out of a window going 55mph up the freeway in a 1978 VW bus, but for Squishy Cat, it’s just part of life. Ever since Squishy walked up to us that fateful day in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, he has lived...read more
While in Arizona, waiting for our VW bus to get fixed, we met two young Native Americans who spoke about energy, their heritage, the importance of their language, their education from the elders and American history, as it’s taught. One of them spoke about...read more
The subconscious mind works through our thoughts and feelings and drives many of our actions and behaviors. It is particularly active in times like sleeping, which is why the last 5 minutes before falling asleep are so important. Oftentimes, we’ll go over (and...read more

LATEST POSTS FROM FOOD
Check out our food recipes and information on transitioning to a plant-based, whole food lifestyle!
Beets are an excellent source of fiber, magnesium, vitamin C and phytonutrients. We often put them (and the beet greens) into smoothies, but our favorite way to eat them is when they are chilled. When we first visited Colorado, we found a wonderful health food store...read more
Lavender has long been used for the delightful aroma it puts off and for the healing benefits it provides. For instance, lavender oil reduces tension, cleanses the skin, relieves pain and helps soothe the respiratory system. Just breathing in the smell, loosens up our...read more
The two of us have been enjoying small bites throughout each day, rather than three heavy meals. It keeps our metabolisms going and it allows our bodies to spend less energy digesting food. We’ve come to realize that softening foods and/or blending food down...read more
LATEST POSTS FROM TRAVEL
Travel across the country with us and learn about how we managed life & work on the road!
After a close call in the Arizona desert, the two of us, our dog and cat were stuck in a tow yard for three days and nights over Memorial Day weekend. Once our VW bus was able to drive again, we headed to Page, Arizona for more essential repairs, our 8 year wedding...read more
When the two of us began our cross-country trip in our VW bus in South Carolina, we had no idea what was ahead or how far we would go. We could never have expected to welcome a kitten into our family, make it to our birthplace, land in Roswell for their annual UFO...read more
While in Colorado for winter, we made sure to take our time and play in the snow, as much as possible. It had been almost a decade since the two of us even saw snow, so it was very nice to have made wonderful memories with a cross-country skiing picnic and going...read more
