See this manual in my hands? It certainly keeps our Volkswagen alive, and because of that, it witnesses, to put it gently, our coarser moments. - Its pages once ruffled in the New Mexico winds, when both of our external oil hoses ripped. It was twenty degrees Fahrenheit, and we argued in the yellow lines of the frozen road. - It stared as we hurled rocks at each other in the Mohave Desert, that time we capsized into a sandy double track. We walked miles to find help that day. - And today, today, that goddamn manual's laughing at us. I can hear it. We're greasy-handed and shaking our heads over the mountain of dirt in engine compartment. We're unbolting the fan shroud and pounds of accumulated desert sand and mountain soil fall to the ground. - Every time we work on the engine, me reading aloud from the manual's pages, J.R. elbow-deep in the bay, we're reminded that the art of mechanics is a true practice in Zen, and the center of Zen is paradox. Perhaps engines themselves are built on this very principle. Let's just hope we can accept the facts of our trusty manual--and that no rocks go flying today. #vanlife - 📸 supported by @hydroflask

At 2am, camped in these thick eastern woods, I was in the midst of a deep sleep when what startled me but a crash kerplunk bang on the fiberglass roof of the bus, just outside where we slept. - I saw the shadow through the canvas fabric, a dark pointed snout and little wee claws and knew right then that a possum was out there, climbing the roof, sniffing out all the ripe treats hidden in Sunshine. - So I grabbed a book and threw it at the canvas and its pages hit the floor like a falling branch into a pile of leaf litter. The possum climbed for refuge into the patient branches of the old tree above. Relieved, and still half asleep, I rolled over as though I'd never been woken in the first place.
