To-Do Lists & Tinkering

As time goes on, our to-do list keeps on growing, but so does our excitement! Today, Tressa and her pops spent some time poking around in the van to make a more comprehensive list of what needs to get done to make our vehicle a cozy and safe home. We're planning on resurfacing the counter top and bed, changing the bracing on the bed to make storing things underneath it more accessible, building some new shelves, looking for a new front door panel, getting a tool box set up, making a new curtain... We'll have to get a mattress, camp stove, propane, a sturdy cooler, water tank, storage containers, solar chargers... The list goes on!

These iPhone photos are definitely not Kelsey-approved but give you an idea of the interior.

Most of the preparations will get started in earnest in late May when Kelsey comes back to Sonoma County from school, but we have also been spending some time thinking about the questions we're exploring on our journey, doing a little pre-writing and thinking about what how to approach documenting what we discuss with people along the way.

We're thinking it'd be fun to test the waters at home before we head out, so let us know if you'd be open to showing us what home means to you and being our guinea pig in late May or early June!

Finally, thanks SO MUCH to everyone who has contributed to our travel fund! Huge thank yous to Ted Judah, Ralitza Benzzo, Dan Boyle, Jaw Blake, Gary Lek and Robyn Hunter! Please continue to help support us by sharing our project or donating to our Trevolta trip — we'll be sending our backers some fun incentives and you're always welcome to get creative and think up your own.
