Since Montana is close to being finished, we started improving the bus inside. Now you can’t see the control switches and exposed wires that were next to the steering wheel. Maybe I like projects a little too much. #buslife #vanlife
Next to forest road 25 off route 100 in Granville, VT: We love this spot! 3 campsites with fire rings, 2 had picnic tables. This site also has 3 porta potty’s! This is just a pull off on the side of the highway. People park here during the day to swim in the creek that has some larger pools in the woods on the right side. During the week hardly anyone comes by or camps, but it is busier on the weekend. Very quiet at night, with only a few cars passing by very occasionally. Great AT&T cell service, great level ground, and beautiful views all around. Right in between Warren and Granville. Granville has a small town store, but I would recommend driving the extra couple minutes into Warren(opposite direction). There is an excellent convenience store(Macs) right off route 100, as well as a few markets in town. I visited Warren Community Market, which is mostly geared towards local and organic health foods, so is pricier, but had a good produce selection. Warren also has some other shops and a laundry mat. #vanlife #vandwelling #vandweller #vandweller
Friends make work all the easier! Thanks to Cody for coming over and helping us put up our walls and mount our mini split's inverter. 😍😍 Got a bunch done today! Hoping tomorrow is just as great! Productive days are my absolute favorite 👌👌
Tomorrow we're going to finish cutting the panel that goes around the inverter and then we have to snake the copper lines down and mount the condenser underneath. ✔
Painting the interior roof, back panels and front entrance tomorrow as well!
Lily is starting to really feel like our home 😍

Sometimes all you need is a big smile to get through the day. •
This dog can be the worst while also being the best all at once. She loves living and traveling in a van, but man does she also have terrible anxiety when it comes to it all. She’s always been a bit high strung, so it wasn’t a surprising thing to have to deal with, but it was a bummer to see her stressed like that. Fellow vanlifers with pets, how do you calm down your pets while traveling? She’s doing much better now that we’ve settled down for a little while, but any tips for our upcoming travels would be most appreciated! 🐶💜
We spent some wonderful & relaxing days at this tiny hut called Refugio Frey 😍
Frey‘s famous for climbing rock spires in summer (look at the mountains in the back 🏔🧗♂️) & its couloir-lines in winter ⛷⛷
Our first holiday from #vanlife
was absolutely basic (we shared our room with about 40 people, at least 5 of them snoring 😅) but we enjoyed being far away from our everyday life, good company and Pizza & wine every night 🍕🍷

Update Days 4-7
What a difference a few days make! A few days ago, I was waking up in a Walmart in Spearfish, SD. Since then:
We acted like little kids at Mount Rushmore, bombed across South Dakota and reveled in its hokeyness (Wall Drug and Al’s Oasis), camped in and were awed by The Badlands, got homemade fudge (and not much else) in Minnesota, got a bit tipsy in and fell in love with the quaint town of Decorah, Iowa, had our first bite of salad in days in Madison, hated Illinois as much as we loved Decorah, swam and saw a beautiful sunset at Indiana Dunes State Park, spent another night in a Walmart, swam in our second Great Lake in the span of 12 hours when we hit up Lake Erie in Ohio and then raced home through PA.
2,657 miles. 7 days. Tons of adventure. Lots of memories. And zero problems from the one and only Ol’ Bessy. I think I could get used to this lifestyle!
Big thanks to all Epop’ers who reached out to us and offered us places to stay and wanted to hang out. We decided to get home quicker than originally planned once we got out of Illinois, but don’t worry, we’ll be back on the road again soon...and we’ll get out and see you!

Why are elephants wrinkled?
Umm have you ever tried to iron one?
This was the biggest weekend on the bus yet! But the pressure's on so we're pushing it.
We built the couch/guest bed (why yes, we DO have a guest room😅), got most of the wiring and plumbing set up (not completed), put slides in for a few cabinets, welded on a new bottom for our tub (yes, that's going to be a tub believe it or not), spaced out the water tanks and tried our hand at some spray foam. The only thing that went wildly awry was the spray foam.....Not bad if you ask me!
So we're hitting targets and smashing goals, but still so much more to do in 2 weeks 😬
Got any tips, suggestions or love? Send them our way!
P.s. huge shout out to @thelast_straw
for help with the welding, cabinets, lending tools, letting us camp/crash your place, we honestly couldn't do it without either of you!❤❤❤
Meet SUBOVERLAND Owner #1

Check out this gorgeous van!
Yes, I bought a van! Been thinking about this one for a while and the opportunity finally came. Lift and tires are at the top of the list. #vanlife
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Breakfast not only kick starts your metabolism, but also promotes a healthy memory and helps with concentration. —
Breakfast was pancakes and @lightlifefoods
Gimme Lean Sausage. I love this product because it has 0 fat, 0 cholesterol, and tastes just like sausage. —

“Feel the Zen”
This bus has brought intense happiness and introduced me to a passion I never thought I’d find. But not everything is so simple, it scares me that in a few months I will be thousands of miles away from my family; especially my little sisters who mean the absolute world to me. I have come to the realization though, that the best thing I could do for them is show them that if you believe in something -and yourself- hard enough, amazing things will happen.🌷 -Cynthia🌸
Well I've arrived close to my destination for the next week of teaching. I'll be at Shake Rag Alley tomorrow morning with bells on, eager to begin set up!
For now though, 1003.7 miles is deserving of Culvers and the hurricane force winds and rain will be my lullaby. I love to car camp in the rain. Nighty night. Ps. I'm still basking in the glory that was @beadfest

When you're out for a run near the river walk and stumble upon a park with wierd sculptures, like this old man with antlers toting a hammer and welder's torch. 😂
