Always the Road  β€’ Pete + Tay + Snoop β€’ Living and traveling out of our self-converted van πŸšπŸ’¨ πŸ“Northern California πŸ‘‡Get Our Conversion eBook Here!

Van life days aren't always easy picturesque, and beautiful - it's a life of constant travel and to say the least, it can be exhausting and full of unpredictable obstacles. But for us, this lifestyle wakes us up every morning with a big fat smile and excites us to start living each new day. It's a life full of unexpected opportunities and possibilities and hot damn, do we love it! And plus, spending my (Pete) days traveling with this beautiful girl couldn't get any better. A big #wcw to the gorgeous Tay Tay πŸ˜πŸšπŸ€™

I (Pete) absolutely love this photo of Tay. It might seem like a random moment in time but to me it carries so much meaning and embodies so much of what I love about Tay - the humor, beauty, and carefree(ness) that she brings to everyday life. I can't express how lucky I am to be with someone who chooses to live a life of adventure over a life of luxury. She constantly makes me laugh, pushes me to be a better person, and always brings out the positives in life when anyone around her is having a tough day. You're my best friend 'Tam Tam Shazam', and hot damn do I love you! Happy Birthday baby, it's party time πŸ˜„β€οΈπŸ€™

One time when I (Tay) was in high school, my family and I took a trip to California. My best friend came with which made the trip even better. We spent a week sunbathing on picturesque beaches, eating at fancy restaurants, gawking at all the beautiful people, and walking around outdoor malls. The concept of outdoor malls was so odd to us at first. "But what do people do when it snows?!.....ohhh right." We wrapped ourselves in as many of California's amazing sceneries as we could: everything we couldn't find in Wisconsin. I cried the night we before we left and swore I was gonna go to college in sunny California β˜€οΈ
I didn't know then that I would have the opportunity to spend so much time in this enchanting state. I can't even describe the feeling I get when I'm sitting shotgun with my hand out the window, cruising Hwy 1 with the love of my life and our loyal dog-child. Bliss, I think. That might be the right word to describe it. 🎈

Another #throwback to the amazing weekend of @outfound_series. It makes us wish we could be at the Vanlife gathering hosted by @tinyhousetinyfootprint in Colorado this weekend SO BAAAD 😫We love to meet up with other #vanlifers any chance we get, but unfortunately we just couldn't make the drive to CO with the sporadic issues that Sonder has been having. But we hope all those attending have such a fun time, and we'll definitely be there in spirit πŸ€—

Because all successful Instagrams include quality "butt shots." (_|_) πŸ˜‰

Yeah, I guess you could say that Snoop has a case of the Mondays πŸ’€

I love looking at old pictures from our travels, and while the photos of stunning landscapes and beautiful places are entertaining to look at, I love shots like this one. Shots that are candid and unplanned, showing that normalcy and routine can still be a part of vanlife 😊

We're gonna take advantage of #tbt to post another shot of this beautiful view 😍
Also, the van is probably the dirtiest it's ever been right now with the dust and dirt of the farm we're at coating every surface...including our skin and bed. This picture helps us reminisce of cleaner times ☺️

On the road today and the gang's all here πŸ‘Œ

There are no words to describe how much joy this beautiful creature brings to our lives. 4 years ago we walked into our local animal shelter and saw this dog with a giant head and permanently sad expression. He looked sad, but his butt began to wiggle as soon as we approached his kennel. We were as infatuated with him as he was with us. We visited him twice more over the next couple days to make sure it was a good fit, and after the second visit we couldn't wait to take him home. We were the only people who filled out an application for him. To everyone else he was just another abandoned pitbull at a shelter. Buncha idiots. Because as people look for their new companion, so many just walk past these block-headed dogs because they heard from somewhere that they're vicious. I feel bad for these people though because they actually believe this lie and miss out on having the most loving, loyal, cuddly, smart, and truly incredible dog.
Snoop is a teacher to us. He teaches us to not discriminate or judge and to love unconditionally. He teaches us that it's okay to relax and that even when times are tough, there are always things in life to be excited for...even if it's just a hot dog. Also, he teaches us that it's okay to fart in public, it just might not be as cute as when he does it 😊#spreadtherumer
