Living In a Van down by the River


Many of you (my imaginary readers, that is) may not know about the Big Green Bus. Last summer me and Cory fulfilled a life long dream and got a very awesome 1973 Volkswagon Camper. We bought it from this amazing hippy family that ditched the city life for the country, grows their own food and 'herbs' and spends their saturdays reading out loud to each other by their creek in the woods (seriously, they told us this). Our dream is to someday drive da bus all the way from Seattle down to Cabo and just camp and meet cool people on the way.

We took some cool trips to some local camping spots last summer, and as spring has arrived we are beginning to plan its many voyages this summer. I think we have decided its first trip will be for my birthday over Memorial day weekend to the Sasquatch Music Festival at the Gorge. I can't even tell you how excited I am for it either - The Cure, Modest Mouse, The Mars Volta...and like a bazillion other amazing freakin bands. And some sweet camping in the bus in one of the most beautiful spots in America. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!


  1. That is so cool. Michael and I have been looking at VW vans/buses lately. I think we might get one. It looks so fun.

  2. Julie, thanks for posting that! Tim was very jealous when I showed him and spent the rest of the night looking at VW buses on Craigslist!

  3. That is such a cool car! Spencer is jealous everytime he sees it!
