First Look at our New Ride!

I know everyone has been dying to know how we are planning on traveling across the country. Well, we officially purchased our new conversion van today!

Check this baby out:

Your eyes are not deceiving you. That is leather. And woodgrain. I know. You're totally jealous.

Customization and associated photos to come!


  1. I just checked out your map and have some recommendations. When you are in Vancouver you should go over to Vancouver Island and check out Tofino. Super cool small surf town. Mandy and I stayed at the hostile there and it was great. They do an amazing whale watch tour (depending on the time of year you are there) that goes out to a hot spring. Your trip sounds amazing and I am so jealous! I really hope you guys enjoy yourselves! Also, let me know when you are in GR, I would love to see you both!

  2. Thanks for the recommendation, Jen! I just found your email address, so we'll be sure to let you know when we are in G-Rap. Maybe lunch at Yesterdog?

  3. Sweet ride! And here I thought Ellen would never own a Ford again (after the Explorer). :)

    A friend of a friend would use "I have a van." as a pick-up line.

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
