Holey bus, Batman! That’s holey, not holy. During the demo process, we created a lot of new holes in the exterior of the bus. We removed the city water inlet - small hole. We removed the tv cable inlet - small hole. We removed the furnace vent - medium
When we bought the bus, the entryway and stair risers were covered in carpet. The carpet in the bus was old and in bad shape, so pulling it out was one of the first things we did in the demo process. What remained underneath left a lot to be desired,
Our bus has three vent fans in it, but, oh man, the ones that were in there when we bought it were redonkulous. That word bugs me, but I couldn’t come up with a better description. The fans were teeny tiny, PC-style fans.
I mean, how in the world
When I was in first grade living in Apple Valley, California, I rode the bus to school. The experience of riding the school bus for the first time might teach a kid many lessons: how to make a new friend when looking for a place to sit, how to pay
When we originally thought we would start full-time RVing early in the summer, we had planned on being in Kentucky to view the solar eclipse. We even made campground reservations early in the year, knowing it might be difficult to find a spot if we waited until the last minute.

When we last left off, we had cracked open the battery housing and were planning on configuring our 2013 Nissan Leaf module into sixteen 24-Volt batteries. The original plan called for 24-Volt configuration because each of the Nissan Leaf modules is configured with 4 cells, 2 joined in parallel and
Did you think we got swallowed by the bus? Some days it feels like it. It seems like we eat and sleep "bus". In fact, I've been having dreams about the bus - wiring, dash gauges, etc. Homeschooling is about to start again, and I am so thankful to have
When we originally decided to pursue this full-time RVing life back in 2015, we set an “ideal hit-the-road date” of June 2017. Why wait two whole years? Well, back in 2015, we still had a one-year-old. And, to be perfectly honest, I had been pregnant or nursing a baby for
We have been researching solar power since before we started on this full-time journey. Initially, we wanted to setup a system that would run our pool pump and maybe offset some of our high Arizona air-conditioning bills. There is something really cool about getting energy directly from the sun (for
When we removed the wheel well covers, we discovered some holes that needed to be dealt with. Some of these holes were from rivets, but some were clearly spots that had rusted through.
I guess after 50-plus years of water and debris being kicked up by the tires, even aluminum
