  • Gloomy mornings always make it hard to get out of bed 😅 .
.
Honestly, just being stuck at home is making it hard to get up. We’re slowly developing a routine, but when every day is different it takes some getting used to. Taking this one day at a time and appreciating every moment; this is all part of the adventure🌲🚍🌲

Don’t worry about the world so much.
•
The only thing that’s in your control is your own life.
•
If you focus on becoming a better person, you will naturally make the world a better place, and you will find peace in knowing that.

  • A slow morning with all of the bbs! I am serenading them with a little bit of The XX and Sylvan Esso on ukelele! Music starts and ends our days in our little yellow bus! And I have to say I am so grateful to have the time and mental energy to learn a new instrument! Bus life has really transformed us into more sustainable humans!
.
Who else has made space for an instrument? Keys? Guitar? Synth? Tell me about your setup! I'm super curious! Or dm me a pic! I'd love to see!
.
Happy tunes, yall!

  • We’ve been asked over and over how our couch works, and today, we’re answering that question with a skoolie tutorial video!
•
The couch is a free floating box that fits perfectly under the mantle and on top of the wheel well.
•
We didn’t put it on hinges because this way when it folds down, rather than sitting six inches out from the wall, it pushes back in to it.
•
It’s held in place by an eyelet hook on each side, and supported by the wheel well on one side and a hinged support on the other that looks like a drawer when the couch is up.
•
To take it down, it’s a matter of moving the chest that sits in front of it, unhooking the eyelets, pulling out the support arm, and popping it away from the wall to lay flat.
•
To put it up, the process is reversed.
•
Questions? Just ask!

Times are weird these days. But stay home and try your best to keep at your hobbies and keep your brain happy. It can be hard sometimes, but remember what brings you Joy even in the bleakest of times. And if you can’t stay home cause of life I’m sending positive vibes. Stay safe!

Shoutout to my sister @goobydraws for the massive amount of help in getting my bus taped up for the big ole paint job.

  • I never thought living tiny would be something our family could do! But I am beyond thankful for being able to! It has done nothing but given us the opportunity to grow as one! It has been nothing but amazing! •

During quarantine time we have been reflecting on our selves and been soaking up this family time! What have you all been up to? •

  • Hello! We are still alive! 
So quick update. SPIRIT IS BROKEN! Yey lol We have been filming pretty much everything we’ve done to it in the past months. Life has been so busy, we haven’t been able to work enough at a time to be a single video worthy. So documentary will come soon! 🌅
Now, to an actual update. WE ARE MOVING! Yes, I know it’s a crazy time to be alive rn and traveling between states is not the smartest thing to do. But we have to go. Our lease is up and our planned time for Texas is too. Things were set in motion before the lockdown. So we will be extra careful and will not make any stops that are not vital. But Spirit decided to not run (as we are prepping to load up and go!). After few days of trying and calling in an expert, we have found the problem. Oil pressure switch is out. Ordered a new one. Hopefully it fixes the problem. 🤞🏻 We’ve been learning so much.. Just look at all this madness!! #buslife #vanlife #bus #busconversion #conversion #mechanic #diesel #trucklife #nomad #carsofinstagram #skoolie #new #roadtrip #texas

  • Channeling the spirit of my ancestors 👵🏾👨🏾‍🦳💪🏾🌍✨ It’s been an ongoing battle with this land for the past 2 years, but this year we are determined to finally win. So many messages & downloads come through when I’m out here working.. and although there have been many times where I’ve wanted to give up, I think about my ancestors and ask TMH to provide me with the same strength & endurance that was given to them in order to fulfill the mission that’s been given to me 🙏🏾 Here’s an update of our land space.. We’ve cleared away about 90% of the what was out here when we first got started—vines, thorns, trash, poison ivy, old shed, fallen trees, etc. And we’re finally getting our garden beds going this year as well. We’re trying out the Hugelkultur method (I’ll have more videos on that soon!) Up next: digging the other 2 trenches for the beds, finish cleaning out the last of the weeds & vines, junk removal coming tomorrow to FINALLY take the last pieces of the old barn! Most of our seedlings have already been started inside. Planning to get them (& the rest of our crops) in the ground during the new moon in a couple of weeks.

Let me know what y’all think in the comments below! Any other gardeners here? Has this quarantine time turned you into a gardener? Time to get back to our roots & use this time to see how we can all become more self sustaining! ✨✨

  • First morning in the Skoolie. First drive after buying her. And a pic my friend took as he left, leaving me alone with her for the first time. .
This was my first morning in the Skoolie and for the last 1.5 years I had lived in my van unable to look out the windows. This morning, I woke up directly facing the sunset and was able to watch it rise in all its glory from my comfy bed. This is a real “woke up like this”. I had no idea my friend was taking pictures or I would have at least turned my face so you could see it. I’ll save ya’ll from the weird-faced yawn ones tho.

  • We visited 44 states on our trip. When we are asked which was our favourite, we both say Michigan. We wouldn't live there since we both don't like the cold but man, that state completely blew us away. I'd even say its the most underrated state in America. But we still have 6 to do so... Take it for what you want. Go to Michigan next chance you get. More specifically the UP.

shoot was canceled because of the pandemic. fortunately, our friend that we were isolated with (before leaving Arizona) grabbed some awesome shots that we edited ourselves. It was a little awkward posing ourselves and trying to figure out lighting when we were in front of the camera! But there’s a few keepers 😍 Thanks again @narrow.road.family ! .

  • Anyone else feeling accomplished by having only ONE section of their house cleaned?

Didn’t make the bed today, but we made the couch 😂. Some days are better than others... Today is DEFINITELY feeling like a Monday-hard to get motivated for the week ahead.  BUT once we were up and about, we found some quality time to sit in the sun since the weather was gorgeous, get workouts in, clean a little, and find some productivity in the day.  Now to finish up the day with some yoga, before dinner time.

Is it hard for you to get up and motivated on a Monday? What did you accomplish today!?

  • One thing we have learned about living in a bus is sometimes you just have to roll with it. Yes, pun intended! 🤣🤣🤣 •

We are thankful for the moment to breath and catch up on life but is it time to travel yet? We are definitely itching to get out and see all the beautiful sights America has to offer. •

We’ve spent 3 years of our marriage paying rent on a place that would never be ours, and 6 months in an RV to make sure we could do the whole tiny living thing. The last 9 months have been us renovating this bus and we have to say it feels so good to work on a place that is your own. •

Hopefully in a month all this craziness will be past us and the Binks Bus will start rolling again. We are definitely looking for suggestions of places to put on our bucket list. We would love to hear from you!

  • Welp y’all I’m leaving CO, again. This time I’m taking a travel nurse assignment in New Jersey (about 10 miles from NYC) for the crisis response to help fight this medical war against COVID. I’m leaving the bus behind and more importantly, Lucy, for now. I’m anxious, nervous, and excited to help. I’ve spent the entire last week tossing the idea around about leaving my current low risk job for this assignment and ultimately decided that I feel like it’s my duty to help provide relief and care during this crisis. 😱🚑👩🏼‍⚕️☣️ *cue cardi b* SHIT IS GETTING REAL

  • Coffee is life! Probably the most used space in our bus is the coffee bar. We both might have more than one cup a day... 🙃

  • We’re grateful for.... the days we’re able to make the bed 😅. But really!  The last couple of weeks,  living full time on the bus, have been BUSY.  Between traveling, breakdowns, getting the bus serviced, sheltering in place orders being issued (while trying to secure a place to park long-term), completing orientation for a new job, and more [really just all of our previous plans being derailed by Covid-19]... we’ve not had a whole lot of down time to pay attention to the basics (like making the bed) or to self care in general (who else is wearing the same sweatpants or leggings 24/7!?). We’re sure many others, though due to different experiences, are in this funk as well.

The above is not how we expected our first couple weeks of bus life to go.  In addition, Lauren didn’t expect to have to go back to work so soon.  David planned on still having access to the gym while traveling.  We thought we could simply spend more time outside: skiing, hiking, etc.  We didn’t know all of the RV parks, state parks and other parking spots would shut down reservations.  The list goes on.

Don’t get us wrong though we are still SO HAPPY to be on this journey!  We are grateful for this beautiful bus and the shelter it provides.  We are grateful for one of us having a confirmed income right now.  We are grateful for skype, zoom, FaceTime, etc with friends.  There is so much to be grateful for, but it’s hard to hold on to that when the world is in a dark and dreary place right now.  A dark and dreary place where it’s hard to make the bed.  It’s hard to be motivated.  It’s hard to be excited about much.  And maybe you’re in that same head space right now too.  So let’s remember to stand together and support one another during this situation we’re all in!

Let’s not let these dark times get us down.  Tell me what you’re grateful for!! Does anyone else just feel more productive on days they made their bed!? How is your self care holding up during these hard times!? ❤️

  • Going tiny doesn’t always mean compromising. When we built our home, the kitchen was the biggest game of tetris. We wanted an oven, two burners, a fridge with a freezer, a large sink, hot water, a wide countertop, and a bunch of storage. Without taking too much space or feeling overcrowded. And that is what we got 👌

🇫🇷 Vivre tiny ne rime pas forcément avec compromis. Au moment de construire notre bus, la cuisine était vrai cassé casse tête. On voulait un four, une cuisinière, un frigo avec un freezer, un grand évier, de l’eau chaude, un large plan de travail, et plein de rangements. Sans prendre trop de place ou être sans cesse encombré. Et c’est ce qu’on a fait 👌

  • We celebrated last night having a bus that finally looks a lot more like a home. The social isolation measures means we have heaps of time to do all the little jobs we were putting off. Our plans to leave on our adventure are currently on hold until travel restrictions are lifted, which we are hoping will be in 8 - 10 weeks. Up the front are two day beds we made this week. We are sewing up the cushion covers this week so they are nearly complete. The vic ash timber bench tops are 3.2m (left) and 2.7m (right) long which gives us heaps of space which we love. A few more weeks of work and we will be done!
