I can’t believe I’m going to sell my oh so loved Bear Turtle (my 05 Tacoma) but on the flip side, a 1997 F-350 will be soon much roomier and powerful to live and travel in!
My partner and I are opting out of the “Rent” game indefinitely so we can travel more, work less and actually save some money to one day buy a piece of property to build our dream home on. Containers will make up the living space and the master suite will be up in the trees and all of our toys in a custom barracks style corrugated steel building we have decided.
But in the here and now, we are selling my 2005 Toyota Tacoma Crew Cab V6 TRD Off-Road with tons of extras including Fox suspension and remote airbags and her 2013 Subaru Impreza Sport Wagon for what we have settled on as the best combination of fuel efficiency, power/payload, reliability, and roomieness.
A 1997 Ford F-350 Powerstoke Crew Cab Long Bed 4x4 with a manual transmission. Overkill? Maybe. However given its intended mission of being our home for the next couple of years and pulling our 6x12 cargo trailer which will contain our kitchen /bathroom/ garage/ work shop, we think its a perfect fit:) Throw in a couple of rocket boxes up top of the heavy duty steel cab over rack and camper shell, we think we have it all dialed out.
Over the next two months, we will be documenting the build and conversion of the truck and trailer into our home on wheels on each of our blogs. Think tiny house in stealth mode and a new take on simplifying your life. The motivation for this project is to make our travels as a Mountain biker and Race Promoter as enjoyable and cost-effective as possible while working towards our goal of having a mortgage free permanent home base.
Our first adventures together were spur of the moment and typically requiring better planning and more adequate foot wear than flip flops but we went for it anyway and they became know as the flip flop adventures and so shall they be known into the future. I hope ya’ll follow along, its gonna be good times!

I can’t express the warmth and happiness messages like your spread throughout my body. Its really overwhelming=) thank you for the kind and encouraging words, Anon.
I’m a guy. You need to know that first. And as a guy, I think it’s pretty sad that there is so much sexism in cycling. I’m not talking about the glaring lack of a women’s Tour de France. That’s a problem, but that’s not a problem for everyday people who choose to make…
Why am I still dealing with this crap? I moved on like, 2 months ago when I decided flying solo was totally for the best after I took the knife the third time in the back. Yet here I am, being put on the spot to defend the fact that I unwilling to be friends with someone I trust as far as I can throw them…actually, scratch that, I am pretty sure I huck them pretty far and man… would it feel good but, I digress. Further more, to have people tell me it would be in my best interest to kiss and make up is down right insulting. I don’t expect anyone to listen to what I have to say about the unprovoked and vindictive manner in which the person I am talking about set out to assassinate my character to anyone that would listen. I know better than to fight battles i can’t win. Best I can figure is that their justification in doing so was that my gut instinct was not to trust them, and, in taking a non aggressive, neutral precaution out of trusting my gut, was proven to be wise in not trusting them. Fact is, I realized, the reason they were so pissed about my preventative measure was that they no longer had the ability to erase information that would have been pretty embarrassing to them and they were afraid I would used it to do just that. Well guess what, I didn’t. Even though I wish I was capable of stooping so low, I kept my mouth shut, let people think what they will, and moved on.
People my not like the direct manner in which I approach situations. I call it like I see it. No one will ever say that I am two-faced, or fake. Rude? sure. Aggro? sometimes. Blunt? ok. Real? you bet your ass. So no, I’m not going to be friends with some person who treated me and our friendship like absolute shit just because some free shit ,that actually meant something to me (a lot,really), hung in the balance. Insulting, dude guy, to give me some bum ass ultimatum like that..”.kiss and make up and get what you want or don’t, and leave empty handed”. Bitch, please…Its not a matter of pride, its knowing that what goes around comes around and I am strong enough to sit back, not engage you in your little games, keep my head down, work my ass off, and enjoy the show when people find out who you really are.
2014 is going to be rough, but totally rad and worth it. I’m hungry, and I’m not scared to fall down.
Holy fucking awesome
