A Simple Life With Big Adventures - Traveling Couple - Lara Lill Alex Lill - The Lills

SAY HELLO TO THE LILLS!

We’re Alex and Lara Lill, a 24-7/365 couple, focused on learning, building and teaching A Simple Life With Big Adventures!

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.

VW BUS FAN BELT INSTALL

Air and oil cooled motors rely on a properly set fan belt. The belt keeps the fan turning, keeping the motor cool and the battery charged so when it gets loose or worn, it’s time to change it out. Our fan belt wasn’t looking so good, so we decided to...

LONG HAIRED FELLOWS

When we visited family for the holidays in Arizona, our five year old nephew was blown away and unable to grasp the idea of a guy having long hair. It was pretty funny. We explained, long hair isn’t just for girls, but we understood why he’d think...

NO RIGHT TO PRIVACY

Did you know that no right to privacy is expressed in the U.S. Constitution? Instead, companies sell us the illusion of privacy. For instance, your private online information might be private to other people, but not to other companies, robots and hackers. Programs...

ENDORPHINS EQUAL HAPPINESS

HOMEMADE ALUMINUM-FREE DEODORANT RECIPE

The two of us are saying goodbye to generic deodorant. Most brands are full of harmful chemicals and toxins, like parabens, triclosan (a pesticide), diethanolamine (DEA), triethanolamine (TEA), propylene glycol, artificial colors, aluminum and more. We read that...

LUCKY COIN

It’s absolutely amazing when the universe provides signs that tell us symbolically that we’re heading in the right direction. On our trip to Sarasota, Florida, we were tested the moment we arrived. The brakes on our VW bus went “spongy” all of...
