This week you get to see a whole new side of me, a side emerging from behind the words on your computer screens and coming to life on video. Crazy, I know!
Many of you have been eager to see Luna (my car/home) and her layout! I am really excited to finally unveil her here! She’s a gold, warrior queen, totally ready to take on the world with me. She’s fitted with brand new tires, breaks and a front baring — she may be a little needy but so am I.
So, as soon as Luna’s car repairs were complete and checked off my expense list I started focusing on her interior (this was the fun part, but man was it a bit mind-boggling figuring out how to secure my lights, build my bed, store my gear, etc.) So in this video, I wanted to feature a few important products accompanying me on my trip.
My rad plank bed built my Grandpa and Step Dad! It levels out the uneven ground and is easily removable, while being short enough to allow my kitchen to pop up!
Rick Steve's Packing Cubes - (A must for in my clothes bin and in my pack when I venture abroad)
Copious amounts of Trader Joe's non-perishable food - is it excessive yes? Will I ever carry this amount of food again? No, probably not. But when your mom is willing to buy you food for a birthday present - you don't turn it down!
Igloo cooler from Amazon, velcro-ed to the base of the car - so much velcro!
My little REI beauty sack - complete with all my shower stuff, a tiny pack of makeup, and my REI Multi-Towel
Curtains and bedding from Goodwill of course - because it has to feel like home!
With all that said, I won’t keep you waiting any longer. Shoutout to my Mom for her video skills and iMovie for being really easy to navigate - lol!
And there you have it! I still have a few things to get and I’m sure I’ll mess around with organization a million more times along the way, but she’s almost ready to go (even if I’m dragging my feet)!
Stay tuned for another post tomorrow — I’m coming in hot this week! So much to share with you! In such a time of transition I can’t say how much your readership and constant support means to me. It’s the best motivation I could ask for!
Here’s to new adventures and homes on the road!
