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.

We had our first go at replacing a broken clutch cable on our VW Bus in the blazing heat of a typical Las Vegas afternoon. In the midst of searching thrift stores to find wedding attire (as we had plans to renew our vows while on our cross-country adventure), we...read more
Over winter 2018, the two of us hunkered down in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. We continued our design work and manned the front desk at a 420-friendly inn for a few months to save our pennies and gather what we needed to continue our cross-country adventure. The owner of...read more
The front-end of our VW Bus had never gotten any attention since we picked him up. Every 3,000 miles the front-end zerks, or grease fittings, should be fitted with a grease gun and pumped full of fresh grease. This was our first try at front-end zerk maintenance on...read more

What comes out of us can show us a lot about what’s going on inside of us. The form, texture, firmness and color of our poop all have a tale to tell and we can easily find out if our bodies are correctly digesting food (or not), by checking in on our poo. The...read more
Buddhism and Hinduism base the value of a person on what he/she has done in their past and current lives. This is also known as karma, which means “action” in Sanskrit (Indian). The idea is that a person determines their own fate, their own challenges and...read more

While learning more about what we eat and how we eat, we found out that chewing our smoothies (rather than just gulping them down) prompts our bodies to release pre-digestive enzymes. The chewing process begins breaking down food with enzymes in our saliva, making it...read more
A Colorado friend of ours invited us to harvest organic grapes from his garden, which we had never done before. We picked and picked the beautiful little grapes right off the vine, until we had gathered two bowls full of them. The grapes were a tad overripe, so we...read more
Amaretti cookies are one of our favorite treats. We used to get them from a bakery in Pagosa Springs, Colorado and now we make our very own version. The base of our cookie is still almond flour, but instead of using almond extract, we like to use vanilla bean or...read more

Travel across the country with us and learn about how we managed life & work on the road!
After visiting family in Arizona, we jumped back in our VW Bus and putted all the way to Sedona. We heard it was known for its stone formations, red rocks and energetic vortexes, but when we arrived, we couldn’t believe how absolutely stunning it was. Sedona has...read more
While in beautiful Colorado, we were lucky enough to make it to the Great Sand Dunes National Park, home of the highest sand dunes in the country. We stayed in a historic hotel in Monte Vista, woke up early, rented sandboards from Kristi Mountain Sports in Alamosa and...read more
On the day we were heading out of Santa Fe, we spoke to two separate people who both happened to mention a town called Pagosa Springs. We had never heard of the place, but we saw a sparkle in their eyes when they told us about it. As usual, we had no plan or direction...read more
