Our motto is pretty simple – Conserve. Explore. Inspire.
CONSERVE: Be accountable and responsible. Our plan: A diesel truck powered by waste veggie oil. An Airstream travel trailer with solar panels, a composting toilet, rain water collection and interior eco-friendly products…. Off Grid.
Full-time RVing…. On the green road. We are driving towards sustainability one mile at a time. We owned a home. We sold a home. We rented a house that was 1500 s.f. Now we’re living in under 200 s.f. We are living on less and living more purposefully.
Thirst for natural resources is depleting our earth. We are inspired to reduce our carbon footprint and be accountable for our actions and how we impact others. Our adventure begins with down-sizing our life and selling off everything we either don’t need or aren’t using – embracing the idea of simple and frugal living. We found a used 2003 Airstream Safari (25 footer) and proceeded to make it “off the grid” and self sustaining…. converting a used diesel truck to run on waste veggie oil (wvo). This might be more challenging than we think but that’s part of the fun!
EXPLORE: Create community. There are people to meet, cultures to explore, and places that will captivate our spirits. This site is a dedicated resource to everyone out there looking for that balance between passion, sustainability and freedom. Our goal is to promote social change in a positive, hands on and interactive way – in ourselves and others. Movement, travel and exposure will bring us out of the comforts of a brick and mortar life and into the excitement of unknown terrain.
INSPIRE: Incite action and collaboration – fuel the conversation for simple, sustainable living. We are all inter-connected. We are inspired by so many folks out there in the world making a difference, people we know personally and people we only know through media, print or radio. Our hope is that by sharing our life and vision we can inspire and be inspired by others. We plan to document our process and provide generous detail. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Collaborating with others will allow this vision a chance to grow and multiply. Once we are on the green road, we will be available for presentations and tours to discuss the green systems we employ and how we managed to down-size our life to get to this point.
Join us on our journey! We hope to see you out there.
