I never knew how badly I wanted to illustrate a sticker sheet, until I did it. Probably my favorite thing I’ve worked on in a long time. 🎨 for @rolandsbusfarm
Another piece from the collection I did for @rolandsbusfarm Nothing says camping quite like coffee in an enamel mug with a camper van on it 🤙🏼
The presents wrapped with a little extra love ❤️ A Florida Christmas needed some ocean appropriate wrapping paper 🤙🏼 #surfacedesign
Just wrapped a fun project with @rolandsbusfarm in Belgium! What could be better then a whole stack of VW buses?!

Owen always has and always will be our resident road life electrician! It was so nice to see him light up (pun intended) when he dove into the designing and outfitting our electrical system in Amelia. Today he released an in-depth breakdown of our electrical system from Amelia on @youtube link in the bio. For those who have been asking for more face time with my lovely camera shy Owen...this is the video for you 😍
When we come to Florida, the state in which we technically reside, we don’t seem to venture very far off our beaten path because we’ve come in search of time with our families. Before we start our year of travels afar we are taking some time to explore what Florida has to offer. In our experience it can be amazing to see what your backyard has to offer if you take the time to look. Thank you to the Cousin Surf Squad for always paddling out and sitting still for our relentless photo taking 😘
Today we posted our last video of the official Amelia build series over on our @youtube channel. Though we still have a few videos that will come outgoing over her electrical system, the tour, and a detailed account of why we ended up selling her it still feels like a victory to have documented her build and completed our goal of sharing it, even if it is a little late. Link in the bio to check out the last of the build and subscribe to catch the rest! Link in the bio ❤️
“Hungry to learn more about the Tablelands we stopped to knock out the small and easy 4km hike that weaves through the barrens and into a surprisingly lush canyon. As we got closer we learned that the vegetation is able to grow in this area because of a stream that comes out of the Tablelands. During the hike I struck up a conversation with a young boy who was picking berries along the trail as he hiked with his family. He claimed to know what the mysterious berries were and said that they were good to eat. He offered me one, and me being the person that I am, I didn’t think twice and accepted his offer. The second that berry touched my tongue its texture was in my entire mouth. It was so nasty and strange. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced anything like it. I put on a brave face and told him it was good and we hiked on. I complained that my mouth tasted nasty for the rest of the day and I got no sympathy from Owen. That’s the last time I’ll eat a foreign berry given to me by a 6 year old of which I don’t know.” Head to our September on the Road recap for more fun stories like this one 🤙🏼 link in the bio
Q: How much clothes do you carry on the road, and how did you decide what to bring? A: I will be the first to admit that this was the hardest part of hitting the road for me. I like to dress based on how I feel, what the weather is doing, and I don’t like to feel like my options are limited. Owen and I each have about one cubic foot of clothes and we have a @seatosummitgear compression sack that holds our cold weather gear. That’s it. It took a lot of work to figure out what to bring because I didn’t know how much I would need. To help we figured out how much space we were willing to dedicate to clothes and then worked backward from there. We each use 4 full-size @eaglecreek packing cubes and two half cubes. In each of the full-size cubes, we store shirts, pants, shorts, and light jackets. In each of the half cubes, we store socks and underwear. Not only did those cubes help us figure out exactly how much we could each bring but they also help keep our clothes organized when they’re stored in our vehicle. When it came to deciding what exactly to bring I went for clothes that are multifunctional and can easily make as many outfits as possible. That way when you go to get dressed you still feel like you have options with less. Since going on the road it feels like my relationship with clothes has changed significantly. I used to wish I always had something different, something better. Now I see each piece of clothing for what it can do and how versatile it can be, and I really like that. When I queried Owen and the subject he just said it was easy and I didn’t have to think about it much… Such an Owen thing to say. #bfnqanda
There have been some unforeseen delays in the building of our new rig so we won't be getting it until later than we expected. That’s ok though, good things are worth waiting for! Right?! (she says even though she sobs dramatically on the inside, jk, but really) So we’re off to find some adventures while we wait with Lando 🤙🏼
Remember our girl Amelia? She was our 1985 Toyota Sunrader 4x4. A while back we started a @youtube series following her build and we are finally getting down to the grand finale. For the next 5 weeks we have a new video releasing every Tuesday to you through the last 2 episodes of the build process. Then Owen will take you on an VERY detailed tour of our electrical system, then finally a tour of her interior. To wrap up the series I will be doing an in-depth explanation for what happened after the build that lead us to selling Amelia 3 weeks later. It feels good to officially be closing this chapter of our life on the road because we’re so damn close to starting a new one. Head over our YouTube channel (Bound For Nowhere) to catch up on the series and subscribe to catch the upcoming episodes!
This past August was our favorite month on the road. Ever. During this time we crossed from Nova Scotia into Newfoundland via an overnight ferry and were met by the kindest people and endless coastal camp spots. These pictures are just a small sampling from our August on the road recap that is now live on the blog. This post is on the long side, but there was just too many great people, places, things and photos that I just couldn’t leave anything out. Link in the bio for the full post. Ps: I definitely got choked up writing this one on more than one occasion 🤦🏼♀️
