Bottoms Up!

Well this week we are starting at the bottom and working our way up. I was able to template the entire floor with some cardboard. This template will be used to cut out the rigid insulation and the baltic birch, and eventually the vinyl flooring. The subfloor plan is to fill in the gaps between … More Bottoms Up!

Spiralling

Circling, circling, circling…. Fying high over the design landscape of a van conversion. Feels a bit like being out of control, but yet still in control. Hitting on each area just enough to drive more detail in the design, and then moving on. From electrical to water, from solar panels to heating units, from interior … More Spiralling

Seeing New Things

A couple of my product design buds recommended I do a full mockup of my van interior in cardboard and cheap wood before I get to the business of making the real thing. As in anytime someone suggests something smart to do, that takes extra time, I usually just skip it. But I am learning … More Seeing New Things

Orduño … More Nice Times in Najera

Two Selves

There are many souls on the Camino. We walk alone, and we walk together. It is the constant flow of the walk. We meet new people and let them go as easily as we meet them. We get to know some better than others and yet with others we do a deep dive and find … More Two Selves

A Fresh Start

I have been given a fresh start in life. I really like the idea that we can begin the day over again whenever we so choose. It is not really easy to do, but we do have that choice. I am now beginning my second Camino experience and I am in a group with a … More A Fresh Start
