After working for a few months it’s good to be back on the road with no plans or commitments again. I’m sleeping better and nothing resets your body clock like getting out on the road and living the outdoors life. Thanks @elisehalina for the journey and adventure through an amazing 2018. Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings :) 🦎🚐

Every person’s experience of a place is different.
As two Queenslanders, snow and ice is certainly not something we’re used to hiking in, especially when the sun is shining and there isn’t a cloud in the sky! The four days we spent at Zion National Park were unique and truly unforgettable to say the least!
💪🏼Wir haben am Wochenende unsere neuen Böcke ausprobiert.
Wir finden die Böcke wirklich super 🤗 jetzt können wir richtig schaffen .
Die Böcke haben wir auf Amazon bestellt: .

Das Ergebnis gab es hier und vor allem bei @roadandboard schon oft zu sehen, diesmal gibt es einen kleinen Einblick in die Entstehungsgeschichte von Bobs Außenkleid. Es ist gerade mal ein Jahr her, dass ich die ersten Skizzen für den damals neuen Van gemacht habe. Wie so viele andere haben auch wir die vanlife-typischen Motive Berge und Bäume verwendet, aber dank des Stils und der Elemente, die ich vom zuvor schon entwickelten Logo abgeleitet habe, ist auf Bob eine eigenständige ROAD&BOARD-Welt entstanden. Wir mögen sie nach wie vor sehr!
Today's forecast: A shimmering sunset over the mountains and a 100% chance of wine! ⠀

At the end of the day, I like to unwind and treat myself with some wine and quiet time. Thank you @line39wine for a crisp and refreshing chardonnay to go with this unreal view! #FindYourLine#sponsored#ad

when you wake up to the rainiest of sundays, there is nothing better than plugging in the christmas tree lights, watching Stranger Things with your bff, and snuggling with this tender one. i’m so thankful for the wild, big things God is doing but i'm just as deeply thankful for the "small" things. for the slow pajama mornings and for the intimate, vulnerable evenings of a circle of friends sharing pain, rejoicing in the undeserved grace of a mighty King, and praying for all of it. i'm thankful to be ending my day all cozy in my bed, thinking about how incredibly blessed I am for this life, for the humans I get to walk through it with, and for a God who is in every moment with me - never waivering. nothing is near perfection, but joy is known. and that alone tastes of heaven. bless you, friends. may your week be nestled with joy. // #BornToBeFreeUpdate: we have raised $2760 of $20,000 - that's almost 3/10ths in 6 days. WUT. So so so blown away by God's provision and the generosity of so many, a good majority I don't even know IRL! Unreal. Thank you to everyone who's given, shared, prayed, etc. I'm overwhelmed. If you want to share with people you think might have interest, that would be AMAZING. If we can get to $5000 I'm going to do a fun giveaway... Anyone who has given is eligible to win!! More details to come. 😉 Love y'all!!! #cozyhome#christmastime

Flashing back to our visit to White Sands National Park. Thinking of the warm sun shining on our faces. We had no expectations that day. Exploring new places is what we all need more of. I know I do. Because we had no preconceptions we gained so many new perspectives.
No matter where you are, take a moment, close your eyes, and then open them like you’re seeing things for the first time. Let’s explore more. Imagine more. Love more. Live more.
some nights look like this. ✨
lately it's been quite different. being as incognito as possible...meandering down the coast of California.
stealth camping sure ain't glamorous but luckily anywhere is home with this guy and this van.

Throw back to our legendary Schoolie we converted & drove from SF > NYC, hosts an art exhibition and lived rent free in central Manhattan for a month.
We often get asked why we didn’t get a big RV or skoolie (converted school bus). For us, we spend most of our time in nature, hiking trails, and exploring new terrain. While an RV or Skoolie can be great for some, we wanted to make sure we could park at trailheads, get into campsites, and be able to check out random 4x4 roads to get off the beaten path.
We found this road as we were driving out of Death Valley and turned onto it on a whim. Super fun ride past abandoned mines amongst a mars-like landscape.
Wow I can’t believe that we have finished 3 months of the vanlife .... but here we are Regina, Saskatchewan. I think the best part of the whole trip is NOT that it brought our family together. I mean that was awesome. I think it was that it brought my husband and I together in ways I did not know was needed or possible. After 13 years together (8 of them married) we are laughing more, talking more and even more passionate. #vanlifelove#borntobeadventurous

Our weekend’s work—cabinets from @ikeausa. And let me tell you, this kitchen does NOT feel tiny!
We’re planning to hack these plain cabinets a bit by adding trim and some fun paint. What color do you think they should be?

“Ah! I almost had to go to the mechanics office today! 🛠 I hate going to the mechanic! They’re always so dirty and it smells like burnt oil and dirty coolant there. Turns out my new human @smellybagofdirt is a mechanic, and he worked on me right in the @autozone parking lot. He touched my hoses in all the right places and now I feel good as new and ready to go for a ride!”

One of my favorite campsites in North America, directly in the riverbed of the Flathead River, Montana. I spent 5 nights here in August and still daydream about going back! 🚐
The Middle Fork of the Flathead River originates in the heart of the Bob Marshall Wilderness, one of the most incredible places on earth; and it eventually leads to this epic spot where you can camp directly on its shores.

Today’s been such a fun memorable day! To top it off grandbaby #2 is well on her way! Gonna binge watch Christmas movies till we get the call!
He woke up from his nap and went on a hunt to find dad. We found dad in the garage tinkering on the bus, using a drill to take off a board. CJ saw what his dad was doing, grabbed my hand and led me back inside the house, down the hall to the playroom, and over to his toolbox. He grabbed his [toy] drill and ran as fast as could back to the garage. CJ walked over to the brake light and simply said, “Con help too.”
This kid is the best. He is helpful, thoughtful and confident in his toy drilling ability. He has really taken an interest in “fixing the bus dad broke.” His words, not mine. ◻️
Currently Rubert is not the safest hunk of metal for a two year old to be around. To be honest, it would be easier to keep him from the garage and faster to work without his help because I have to keep a close eye on him at all times. But the beauty of the Rubert on the Road project is there is no deadline. The goal of this project is not just to have a restored campervan but to spend time as a family, even in the renovation process. I will forever have these memories of watching CJ and Brent work side by side on the big green bus. ◻️

On this overlook, I met a 77 year old woman who’d been traveling the world for 8 years. She wore a hat that was wilted down with pins she’d picked up in the dozens of countries she’d visited—Albania, Japan, Russia, Argentina. After almost a decade of travel, her hat was more metal than felt... its brim drooped under the weight of all the those souvenirs. I was wearing a few pins of my own, selected for the day from my own collection, a magpie, a coyote, a moose pin from Montana. Being the pin collector I am, I just had to approach her to pay my compliments.
Her name was Jo. At 69, Jo had decided to invest her life’s savings into an endless journey of traveling the world until she died, paying her middle-aged daughter to accompany her “as my assistant,” Jo said with a wink. “I told her we had to do it, because this has been my dream since I was your age,” she said. Sounded like we had more than just pins in common....
We bantered for awhile, until JR told me he wanted to take a photo. Jo watched intently as I tiptoed out to the overlook’s edge, past the sidewalk and onto the granite. Her eyes sat heavy on me all the way. When I came back to the lot, she stopped me, and in a coarse voice said “You know, you’re lucky you have the chance to come here while you can still walk. It’s so pretty I could cry, but in this chair, this is as far in as I’ll go.” And with misty eyes I looked down and said “yeah well isn’t it true that it’s never too late to do what you’ve dreamed...but in the same way, it’s also never too early.” Then I stooped down and hugged her, and she whispered in my ear “Never let anyone tell you you’re wasting your time.”
Since then, whenever anyone’s accused JR and I of being hopelessly irresponsible, devoting our younger years to travel and to wholehearted living, to manifesting the largely impractical things that make our wandering souls sing, I’ll look em in the eyes and say: “A 77 year old woman told me to go while I can still walk, and that’s wisdom from my elders I’d like to follow.”
