90 Day Milestone

Our RV Journey – Summer Trip – Day 90

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while.

We have been busy:
·         visiting with family and friends
·         stepping out of our comfort zones
·         exploring and trying new things
·         making new friends
·         getting in/staying in shape
·         swimming, playing games and laughing  =)

It’s been a good summer, a great adventure.

We’ve been living in our RV for 90 days - 3 months.

We’ve spent so much time outdoors, I imagine it will be difficult to return to our stick house! I remember noticing that same issue last year, after our trip. Once we returned home, we just seemed to regress and spend more time indoors.

Why? Why is that?

I gave it some thought then as well.

Right now, the amount of time we spend outdoors just seems like part of the magic of summer.  =)

Adorable Bookshelves in this Tiny Cabin

Our RV Journey – Summer Trip – Day 80

I love the bookshelves in this tiny cabin! They add character to the room and serve a wonderful purpose.

I love books and as much as I simplify, I still have many books! I find the area of books, a challenging one for me to simplify. We have our own little library at home. We are all avid readers and thoroughly enjoy our library.

For our summer trip, I’ve learned to:

·         pare down and just bring a few books with us in our RV
·         utilize my Kindle while traveling
·         use the local library.

Project - Bus Conversion

Our RV Journey – Summer Trip – Day 76

Spotlight on: Hank Butitta

Hank Butitta is a recent architectural graduate. During his Masters Program, he bought and converted a bus. I love how he took theory to hands on - outside the classroom doors and began this project. I do like the design from the layout to the beds to the bookshelves to the flexibility of the entire inside.  Take a look

You can also watch Hank Butitta as he gives a TED talk.
“Blend of excitement and fear – embrace it.”

Why couldn’t I have a project like this in school? Imagine how much he actually learned from the hands on experience. I give him a lot of credit for thinking of this project as I imagine it was outside the box for his field, proposing it, then completing it.
