Casually strolling along the beach with the family when this Mumma Emu decided to have a play in the water with her three babies! It was so special to watch! 🙌🏻🙏🏻
Had such an amazing day exploring Coffin Bay today and enjoyed the most INCREDIBLE lunch at @1802oysterbar 🙌🏻
I think we’ve almost eaten our weight in oysters today! 😳
We’ve been doing a lot of internal work to the van but it’s still looking pretty stock on the outside, while we intend to keep it stealthy we still have some plans for out here. Adding off road tires, a front bar with winch, roof racks, spotlights and awnings for both sides oh and of course side steps, although our thighs are looking great since we essentially have to do a pistol squat to get out every time
Excited to show you our new view of the back shortly. We have nearly completed a huge project of installing our heating and hot water system. Temporarily removed the bed and kitchen, reconstructing our water tank box (on the the right) to include new elements for the Espar system and adding drawers to that space as well. Had to remove walls, drill holes in the floor, run wires and piping underneath. We are getting photos and videos organized to share our process of install with you. Stay tuned for more details.
Who else is dreading......
having to shovel your way out?
@lancecamper lucked out....

Could you live in a home this small? Before vanlife, Mike and I lived in a hundred year old row home in Baltimore. It was 11 feet wide and 40 feet long. I would say to him, “I never thought I’d live in a house so small!”
At that time, I had already owned two homes myself. The first one I purchased was a four bedroom home on a suburban cul de sac. I thought I would be getting married soon, so I bought a house I could raise a family in. I filled it with adult furniture and decorated every room. But I don’t think I need to tell you that one didn’t work out for me. Life has its own plans, and I found myself moving halfway across the country, downsizing my home, relationships and belongings. I found myself downsizing with every move.
Then we decided to move into our first van, 100 square feet. And I said jokingly “I never thought I’d live in a house so small!”
But I was wrong again. Because here we are in a 69 square foot campervan.
So would you ever live in a house so small? Maybe you’d be surprised what you could do!
The final details to the Webasto 2000 Air Top Diesel Heater install went well. The first image shows the mechanics of where I mounted the unit as well as the only other hole required for running the power to the back of the van (left of blower outlet you’ll see a grommet.) The second image shows the inlet inserted in the middle of the plastic access door. The third image shows outlet, temp control, and the air inlet. The fourth shows the new fuel pump near the factory installed booster heater pump. The fifth shows the fuel filter upstream from the new pump and the final is my plumbing route for fuel pump power and fuel line from pump to heater. The combustion air inlet filter was missing, but will be added as well as an exhaust muffler which isn’t shown, but runs down the underside pointing toward the rear.
It works well and has no problem heating this 140 T1N.
I spliced my fuel pump between the fuel tank and the booster pump. I used a 1/4” brass tee with 1/4” fuel line on the straight to connect the booster heater. I used the 1/4” tee, and connected 2” of 1/4” rubber fuel hose to a plastic 1/4” to 3/16” reducer (Napa) to 3/16” rubber fuel hose to the Webasto fuel filter. This seemed like the simplest way to have a reliable tap.
There’s something really special about having a partner that grows with, learns with you, and enjoys the best of the best moments with you. Having been together since we were 16, we’ve really shaped each other into who we are today. Very excited for all those moments ahead of us that will make the best stories when we’re old. ✨
Zion National Park is our second favorite National park in the US. With the towering red rock cliffs, beautiful canyons, and incredible hikes... we could spend weeks there! Unfortunately, this time around, we only had enough time to drive through the park as we made our way to Bryce Canyon. On the way, we stopped at this epic turnout and soaked up the views.
Taking applications for March rentals!
I’ll be in japan that whole month and am considering renting out my little boutique hotel on wheels. The price per day is on a sliding scale determined by how long you’d like to rent her out.
She is an 08 Dodge Sprinter (so the most reliable/least troublesome year of this model). She’s a diesel; 21 gallon tank drives 5-6 hours. Her mileage is currently less than 40k;where as, these diesel’s LITERALLY can go to 1 million miles. Solar panels, oven, stove, hidden compostable toilet, 20 gallon fresh water tank, farm house sink with a detachable faucet, kitchen and back door windows, black out curtains, diesel heater (connects straight to the fuel line) outdoor hot shower, fan, convertible bed/table (the table can be for sitting or standing), fridge/freezer, plenty of storage, floor to ceiling clothes closet with a kennel for a medium sized dog, VIPER security system, hidden fireproof safe (fits 15in laptop +), large inscreen backup camera, bluetooth, highest quality tires, and a Berkey fluoride water filter.

We put a lot of stock into handling and performance. So we work with the best in the biz because outcome is everything. Big thanks to @agileoffroadjohn and @agileoffroad for dialing in our RIP kit for one of our current builds.
