July in Oregon

Hi everyone! Since we last posted, some things have changed. Unfortunately we had to leave Fort Klamath and are now down the road at the Lake of the Woods. We were very sad to have to make that move but it was a necessary evil. We already miss our new friends Jim, Babe, and Erin and wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season!

As for the NOW, we are both working full-time again: Zach in maintenance and myself in the marina grill. We're parked right on the lake at the old visitor's center just down the road from the resort amongst old growth ponderosa pines and historic buildings built during the Great Depression. A bike/hiking trail runs right behind us and we can pick it up to go explore Brown Mountain and Fish Lake!

On the other side of things, we're being featured in the latest issue of Scoop Magazine, which is a local publication from my hometown in Griffin, Georgia! The theme for the issue is planes, trains, and automobiles and we are slated to grace the cover! The atricle will be about converting the bus and living, working, and playing as we travel. It's currently being printed so we will be sure to post the cover for you all to see!!!

Here are some pictures we took for the article, as well as some others we've taken recently.

It's our bus of toys!

She either lays down right there or on top of the engine cover itself!

Living in a BUS!

The plants on the engine cover are lettuce and tomatoes.
We're also growing zucchini and snap peas!

Still need countertops ...


Jade loves squirrels ...

I realized that we never drew a floor plan, so I drew this one for the article (don't know if they're going to use it or not). You can click on it (and any other pictures in the blog) to see it larger!

As I write this, it's around 8:30am and the marina is quiet, the lake is still, and it's in the low 60's outside. The few clouds in the sky hint to a warm, sunny day in southern Oregon! We went out on the lake a couple of days ago to water ski (Zach put us all to shame!) and saw a bald eagle carrying a freshly caught trout. We're happy to be well and walking and hope to have more to post soon!
