I don't know how many places we've slept in this rusty old girl. Hundreds, some so holy and sacred we didn't take a picture, some so beat up and spur of the moment we didn't even think to. - There've been level spots, there've been campsites on hills so steep our e-brake groaned and all our stuff rolled from the front to the back. - This spot in particular was just last night, half an hour down a rutted dirt road, and the sun went down so late I swore summer would arrive the next day (it didn't) and we slept sound and still and dreamless, as though it were the first time we'd ever slept outside. #homeiswhereyouparkit

We sleep out in places like this 95% of the time. - To us, inhabiting the wilder spaces of North America is the true benefit of living in our bus. - Out here, miles down a rugged dirt road, you can find resources that are scarce in our modern world; true darkness, silence, and solitude. And beauty, there is natural beauty, beauty that man did not create. #homeiswhereyouparkit
