Dear blog readers, we have something very big to share with you:
After nearly two years of full-time travel, we’re officially stopping in one place for a while.
The entire process of converting our bus into a comfortable home as well as the experience of living, working, and traveling on it has been fantastic. It’s been challenging at times, but worth it. That being said, we both have additional goals to accomplish – and after a terrific time touring the U.S. it’s time to hit pause so we can do the work necessary to achieve them
We’ve been very fortunate to be able to travel the way that we have – and we certainly learned a lot of valuable lessons from our time on the road. With that in mind, it also feels like it’s time for us to try something new.
So where are you stopping?
After visiting many cities, states, and provinces, we’ve decided to hang our hats along the front-range of Colorado for a while. Colorado makes the most sense for us right now for a number of reasons, including professional ones.
But, What About the bus?
Rest assured, we are definitely not getting rid of the bus! It’s currently parked in our new rental driveway. After nearly two years of trekking all around the country, it needs some TLC. We’ll be able to perform maintenance and do repairs while not living on it for a while.
