Chores and HomeSchooling are a Fun Part of Living a Full Time Life on the Road!
Dad set out to the grocery store early this morning in search for some distilled water. He needs the water to do chores on the bus conversion. The children help dad find the items on his shopping list. Fresh baked sourdough bread, check, trash bag, check, half and half, check. Now the list is complete! Breakfast is being prepared this morning by Isaiah, the eldest son. Yummy fried eggs and toast sure smell good and taste delicious too. Now that breakfast is finished, we have school and chores to complete. Today, Arwen and Ashton have a 50 word spelling test. Dad is using the distilled water to top off the water in the batteries that are mounted underneath the bus. We hurry to get our schooling and chores done and now it’s time for play. Off to the park for some great fun!
When We Run Out of Drinking Water We Have to Take Our Whole House to the Grocery Store to get More!
Oh no, we ran out of drinking water! This can be a bigger bother than you know. We don’t have a well to get water from. We aren’t hooked up to city water either. We fill reusable jugs with filtered drinking water from the grocery store. Since our only form of transportation is our bus conversion, we have no other choice but to bring the whole family and our house (bus) to the store. This is going to be especially exciting because we are all going out to one of our favorite restaurants, Cracker Barrel. With a large family it is rare that you are seated quickly at restaurants, so we sent some of the children in ahead of us to wait for a table. The children enjoyed playing checkers and browsing around the country themed store. When seated the waitress brought yummy buttermilk biscuits, that are a favorite. Our southern home cooked meals were equally delicious too. With full bellies we set out to complete our task of getting drinking water at a nearby Whole Foods grocery Store.

Kubota L2501 | LandPride Snow Pusher | Night Plowing Sometimes after a winter storm, you have to plow at night. It was still snowing a little bit and the night video came out so good we had to share. The snow pusher does such a great job night or day. We wouldn't be able to maintain our road and live, by ourselves if we didn't have this great piece of equipment. Thanks for watching!
Solar Power Is Like Money In The Bank
Wintertime In MaineMichelle Kennagh/Whiskey n Sunshine Off-Grid. I love waking up to bright sunny days. Although most mornings, I’m up before the sun for some reason. As I’m writing this, it's winter, so keeping the woodstove going on those cold nights is essential unless you want to be super cold in the morning.
I Was Feeling Anxious
Solar, Chicken & A Beautiful DayMichelle Kennagh/Whiskey n Sunshine Off-Grid. We were in a hurry to move in mode after signing for the house. We didn’t have time to think about much. Moving out of the storage units, going to work almost every day, unpacking boxes, and, Repeatedly for several weeks. As we were settling in, I caught myself getting anxious on occasion. Why? We were getting unpacked; finally, the water, heat, and batteries ran. Things were going well. It was beautiful, quiet, such a peaceful oasis. Friends would come by to see us, place and hear the story over and over of how we got here, Our hopes and dreams for this place, and ourselves. Finally, our son came home, saw the house and land. He knew this was where we should be.
