So what’s with the bus? A short interview with Matt.
We’ve been looking for a long time at a way to travel more easily, both for business and pleasure. We try to spend as much time as possible traveling and generally being outside. Especially after an epic summer of travels this year living out of a small SUV, we know that life on the road is fulfilling but challenging, and a little more space would be needed to realize our dreams. RVs are big and expensive, and the fancy high-roof vans are such a new item on the market that there wasn’t anything in our price range that would have any longevity. We came upon our bus, very lightly used at a reasonable price, a mechanically sound blank slate that will allow us to build our rolling home exactly as we want it and last for many many years to come.
Why the paint-job?
So you’re going to live in it?
Well, right now it’s really basic. Maybe somewhere down the line we will pull up roots and go full-time nomad, but for now it does well for a few days at a time, and right now that’s all we need. We have a comfy bed, and lights. We have many years of camping experience, and equipment to match, so it’s pretty simple to just make believe that we’re in a tent - it’s just a tent with wheels. But so nice to have a dry warm well lit place that we can just park and relax, and not have to set up and break down a camp.
