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.

Our 1961 GM Fishbowl / New Look bus conversion continues! There are decorative aluminum panels above the windows that run the length of the bus. They also function as a drip rail for rain, so we wanted to take a look underneath and see if there was any rust or damage....read more
After months working on our bus build outside, we were now ready to bring it into the shop! The first thing we needed to do to get it moving was fix an air line. We noticed that we had a hiss and we were losing air pressure, which is needed to run our old bus, so we...read more

Sometimes, we get sugar cravings and although it would be easy to grab a processed chocolate bar, sugary snack or candy, we are reaching for better alternatives. We’ve even found ways to get some extra good nutrients (like chia seed) into our desserts. See our...read more
One of our dear friends gave us a bag full of organic wheatgrass seed in South Carolina, right before we headed out on our cross-country adventure. That bag stayed in our bus, as we traveled along, until one fine day, we opened it up and planted some seed. Poof, with...read more

On June 5th, 2017 the two of us and our dog said goodbye to living in South Carolina, paying rent and working statically. We took our design business on the road and it all of a sudden sunk in that we were taking a leap of faith. We made it to Alabama, spent two weeks...read more
