Can’t get over the killer spot from last weekend and those dang super s’mores!
Already missing the good times we where having back down South with @crepeattack
Looking forward to reuniting with them come the Fall, and especially stoked to fit Greg and his legendary Syncro “Pastis” into this shot, since she’ll be rocking that fresh @boxeer_
Anyways, here is Arabella and Otis from the trip Aidan and I took to Land Between the Lakes, which is a place that we for sure have to revisit ... It was such an awesome spot.

It almost feels like summer, tomorrow is supposed to be 80 degrees. Sure am living the lux life.
Perfect for a weekend camping trip🤙🏼

It was time to clean up the fuse panel. Ever since we got the GW high power headlight relay kit I've wanted to get some of the OEM relay holders that slide/snap into the top of the fuse panel so the relays weren't zip tied under the dash. Finally got some time to swap over the wires and install fuse holders for our aftermarket cruise control, too. The parts all came from Jay Brown, who is very active on TheSamba. He added pigtails to the fuse holders because the terminals require an expensive crimping tool. The headlight relays on the top left and the two fuses on the top right were both added and now look like they were original to the van which keeps everything clean. Also labeled the relays so I know what does what at a glance. If you want to get parts like this, or need a custom harness, relays, etc. you should contact Jay for sure! Just Google "Jay Brown relay" and he comes up first. 💡⚡

Happiness is having the full tank and your family with you to travel the world!
how exhausting it feels to return to the same problems • questions • illnesses • anxieties • doubts • fears • but you’re never right back where you started • you’ve moved along your path • it may feel the same, it may even look the same, but YOU are not the same • moving along somewhere within the great spiral that is life • it’s all leading you in • back • like a salmon • to SOURCE
VW’s & Vans make a great match. First day rockin the new kicks and first cruise of the year. Making sure everything works before the first camping trip in a week and a half. 👍🏽🚐💨🤙🏽
After calling around to paint shops in San Diego and hearing the astronomical quotes, we decided to take the van to our neighbors to the south 🇲🇽. All sorts of rust removal and panel replacements needed to happen. Went off a friends referral and it couldn’t have worked out better!
I love camping around other people—there are some fascinating folks out on the road. After a few days in Phoenix, though, I needed to get as far away from the masses as possible. The distant glow is a lakeside campground, viewed from my mountain perch 1,500 feet above on a beautiful, moonlit night. I haven’t seen a soul for two days, and it’s been heaven. June and I are headed back down the mountain today, searching for the next random dirt road—whether or not it comes with human company.
It’s been 9 months since we landed in Cartagena, Colombia and awaited the arrival of our van via cargo ship. 9 MONTHS!
It’s hard to believe that much time has passed in what feels like the blink of an eye and at the same time, it feels like we’ve been here for much longer. That feels as strange as it sounds. It really hit us the other day when we glanced at the calendar and realized that the end of April is approaching.
During our time in Cartagena, our pal @tonyrhughes
also happened to be there shooting a wedding. He captured some really wonderful moments of us walking around El Centro/Getsemani and these are photographs that we’ll treasure forever. We drank coffee, ate pastries and walked the streets, taking in the vibrancy around us. Our favorite streets were the tiny, colorful and hidden ones like the one in this photo. It’s so special to have photos of us beginning our biggest adventure yet. As I look back on them, I can’t help but think about all of the things those baby travelers had ahead of them as they started the journey through South America.
That being said, we FINALLY wrote a post detailing the entire chaotic process of getting our van to Colombia from the United States (link in bio). Given how many people have reached out to us on this subject, it was time. Of course, none of it happened the way we planned but we learned a LOT and hope you will too!
Vanagon 1.9 H pipes just off the cnc machine ! Ready to weld! These will be super nice and the first batch we have done on cnc. Some Syncro pipes next.
Q: Do you ever get sick of living in such a small space?
A: Let us think about that for a-NEVER!!! It taught us to need less, live simpler and wake up wherever we wish. It’s really tough to ever get sick of that. #smallspacebiglife #lessismore
Greenhouse meets white van.
How many Amigos does it take to drain the transmission oil from a old Westy? If you answered Tres, your correct! Trying to figure out if the intermittent noise I’ve been hearing is a sign of a failing transmission. Though what you see on the magnetic pickup looks ominous at first glance, there were no large chunks, you could easy rub the residue between your fingers. The head mechanic didn’t think it was too bad either, but we’re gonna run it by the boss man this morning. Rogelio, the owner of Geraldo VW in La Paz used to work on Formula Race cars in the US and was a Porsche mechanic. 👨🏿🔧 Vans in good hands. 🤞🏼🚎🌬🇲🇽
Así sonreímos los Westys 😁👅
