    a warm bed and shower stuff

    I didn't watch the entire video, but did they mention a price? Was it 1 arm and 1 leg, or 2 legs? Lot of nice ideas in there though...

    a warm bed and shower stuff

    Very elegant, but I never liked the idea of cooking inside a van. Also, we don't have the head space - - we can't stand up in ours.

    a warm bed and shower stuff

    There is a long tale about the color of the van. It was originally just your bog-standard tradesmen's Chevy Express white with the peeling paint disease that a lot of GM vehicles had. My husband was doing a trade out with a guy named Eric who owns a bodyshop in the Mercer St area of Seattle...

    a warm bed and shower stuff

    Purty van! Here's ours: And a look at the galley: My husband doesn't like the idea of carrying our bikes inside, but I'd feel they were safer than tacked on a rack in the back, not to mention we'd need to have a full swing out so we can access the galley.

    global warming

    You can re-watch An Inconveneint Truth on Amazon Prime, and then consider how much of what we found hard to believe then has now come to be.

    2021 : Our Rides in Words, Photos, Videos & Maps

    Yesterday I rode in the Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park in Kitsap County, WA, putting up signs here and there for ourforestfund.org. My bike is a city bike, and boy, these roads corrugated from the logging trucks' tracks are the worst washboard you can ride on. Shook the bejesus out of my poor...

    The Green Room

    You know how every so often, you see an article or TV story about someone who decides to do a project where they don't throw anything away for a year? Like, all the packaging, the food they didn't eat, the broken stuff - - they had to keep it all on their property. They quickly developed...

    It's here

    I thought you were going to write that the Apocalypse is here. Which I think it is. I think we are already over the cliff and yet people are just going on as though everything is normal.

    The Green Room

    My ex was selling his manual transmission car. My godson (age 30) wanted to buy it. I said, you know how to drive a stickshift, yeah? He assured me he did. Well he didn't. Destroyed the clutch by the time he made it home and then had it fixed and destroyed that one. Had that fixed and spent an...

    2021 : Our Rides in Words, Photos, Videos & Maps

    My husband keeps threatening to get an old pickup truck for a lawn ornament. I saw this beauty at a local car dealer. The colors of the rust and the blue and green are more intense than the photos show. I thought it would look cool filled with flowers by the mailbox. I asked them how much they...
