The solar panels are up and running, providing delicious renewable electricity for us.  We’ll do an update on the details of the system and how well it works on the road in another blog or better yet, in a podcast – stay tuned!

So the dreaded change-of-season cold has hit us all, first it got Sky, then Sugati, Sirena fell victim next and finally Chris got it the worst.  Just once, it would be nice for a cold to not attack all four of us, but alas, it seems inevitable.

We are still parked in the same place, with our gracious hosts Milo, Laura and Dave.  We are sleeping on the bus full-time and are happy to say that our humanure ( composting toilet is fully functional.  Transitioning to life on the bus has been mostly smooth, with a couple chilly nights (pre-heater) and some uncomfortable sleeping arrangements.

We have some great pictures up on our flickr bus page, check them out there!

We’ll be giving a Mobile Sustainability workshop at Alchemy Juice Bar in Hartford next Saturday, October 4th.  We’ll send out an official announcement as soon as we work out the details.

We’re so happy to have heard from The Phillips Clan in Ohio!  They are looking forward to a visit from us in the bus and have offered to help us in the search for waste veggie oil in their area (the main thing we’ll be needing to move our trip along).  While there, we’ll do a workshop for Carly’s class on using veggie oil as fuel.  Cool!

Enjoy the photos, leave a comment, drop us a line at and we’ll see you on the road, friends


The Bus at Chateau Maltz

The Bus at Chateau Maltz

Saturday, September 6, 2008

Well, ArtSpace is behind us, the feelings are mixed.  It’s always hard to leave a place that has been the nexus of so many memories.  The bonds of friendship that were born and strengthened at ArtSpace will never be forgotten.  On the other hand, we’re very excited to set off on the next chapter of our lives.  

Dave, Laura & Milo have been so generous as to let us park the bus here at Chateau Maltz while we finish up the rest of the work to make the bus road-ready.  We almost ready to get the solar PV system up and running, the beds will go in this weekend and we should get the water system in next week.

We’re posting some photos of our recent adventures.  We’ll be working on a podcast in the next couple weeks, once we get on the road and video should be soon after.  We have hours and hours of video to go through, so that will come a little later.

May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back…
