TGIF🤪 Today Nora slept in an extra hour and I got to take advantage of that time by having coffee and reading a magazine, cleaning the bus, scrubbing the counters stove and sink, doing all the dishes/putting them away, and sweeping the floors. I know right.. quite a list BUT when your house is less than 200 square feet all of that can get done in under an hour! I never really understood how valuable my time was until I became a mama....It’s amazing how much I can squeeze into an hour these days😂
Living 8 days in the Workshop was a tough one but we were truly lucky to end up at Kostas place. .
I learned a lot from him and when I wasn’t working on my Bus, I helped him out in the Workshop. There are 4 Generations living and working together. Something you don’t see very often these days.
Starting up our engine after 8 days was a great feeling and it feels so good to be back on the Road again. .

Kicking off the New Year with renovations 🚌 2020 J&MExpress is about to look better than ever 🙌🏼
Since we are in between snow storms, we spent the day sealing up as much as we could!
We used the rustoleum brand leak seal spray paint to cover up the backs of screws in the walls, caulk for any holes, and a rust reformer spray paint on any of rust on the walls and ceilings from old leaks.

This thing is amazing! I was having a hard time with the score and snap tile cutter ... so hubby bought me this!! I got all the tiles cut for the tire well! It's the weekend so it's break time but I should have a shower tiled by next week!

We are still living in the house, our humans were just about to put the house on the market then our dad was in a really ruff motorcycle accident. He’s healing but can’t play bally with us yet, hopefully in a few months he can!
We still plan to embark on our bus adventure just not until late 2020. Until then, we hope for a lot of snow this winter to play in! You will see snow pictures when it does 😁❄️⚽️

Le band Julien Gris récidive au Mixbus Studio avec cette fois, une chanson spéciale de NOËL!
C’est le nouveau classique du temps des fêtes! Sors tes cassettes de Ginette Reno du magnéto, fais place à “J’ai tombé (dans le sapin)”!!! Nos suggestions festives:
-Apprendre la chanson à ta gang de la chorale (parce que "Mon beau sapin", c'est une toune qui n'a plus sa place en cas de crise climatique)
-Décorer ton sapin en fredonnant le refrain (et de ne pas suivre nécessairement les paroles)
-Faire écouter la toune à ton mononcle fendant au réveillon et le challenger s’il connaît Gainsbourg (un artiste émergent du Québec évidemment)
-Mettre la chanson en boucle dans tous les bons centres d’achats
-Te revêtir de tous les grelots du monde et reprendre la chanson à The Voice UK
Vous en voulez plus?
Pour suivre Julien Gris!

It's been a while since we posted. We've been busy here in Utah with another conversion. Catch it out in our stories, but for now here is a photo of our living room/dinning room/kitchen. What do you think? What is a must have for you in your own space?
Guess the day! It's #travelingthursday !
An area near and dear to my heart, an area that I've spent the last five years of my life exploring. From the hills, to the high elevation lakes. Montana is a place I called home.
Life is an adventure. If you're unhappy the way you are living it, change! We are all explorers at heart, and we seek the desire to travel. Take charge, and make some changes!
Changes and big plans are in the near future
When we pulled up to our campsite at Bagby Hot Springs I saw some voodoo on the ground. Looked a bit closer and it was a ☮️ sign! It was my mission to get a photo of the bus with it 🖤

Ce n’est pas parce qu’il fait en bas de zéro à l’extérieur que les activités de Mixbus tombent en hibernation! ❄️ Au contraire, nous avons plus de temps que jamais de réaliser de longs projets en enregistrement comme en vidéo 🎧🎼📸 Le bus est chauffé au poêle à bois et se situe en forêt dans Lanaudière 🌲🚌🌲 On peut vous héberger et vous montrer nos plus beaux spots de raquettes, manque juste ta vision musicale! 💁🏻♀️ On s’appelle on déjeune?

SLEEP IN A BUS?!?! We understand if you have cold feet about a unique glamping experience! This winter we’ve got you covered literally and figuratively! 3 cozy cabin options await your toes, powerful space heaters, plus heated blankets for sleeping soundly! Check out our guest reviews via the LINK in BIO to ease your mind and book a gloriously groovy getaway! .
When your sick as a dog, home from work, and can’t work on your bus. You decide to watch videos and read to learn as much as possible about plumbing propane systems and fresh/grey water systems into your school bus. Then proceed to make a giant shopping list of everything you think you need.. .
Insulation progress!! We’re on to the ceiling now, which is bringing us one step closer to having walls & a ceiling🥳
Our next project will be approaching the mess of existing bus wiring and hopefully running our 12V and 110V! 🔌💡 .
Asking for a friend! How did you wire your Skoolie? How many outlets & where??🙉

Who needs DJI when you can fly FPV? I can't wait go on some adventures with my little family.
Ok, NOW we are ready for December! We could give you the same old sappy sad story of how we thought by this time we would be much further in our build and spending Christmas inside the bus. You could play your tiny violins for us and try to give words of encouragement. Ot we can tell you that we are making the most of it by still decorating around the bus and trying to use all the time that we do have to get as much work done as possible! You really do learn that it is about the journey because if you are stressed and under pressure trying to make deadlines it makes the process unenjoyable. We hope you are focusing on things that are in your control and having a positive December so far! If you’ve heard us say it once you, you will hear us say it 1000 times. Please enjoy Life, stay positive, and keep going places suckaaaaa!!!!!!!!
Hip Hip Hooray it’s Christmas Vacation! Thanks for coming Santa 🎅🏻

🚌 WE NEED YOUR HELP! 🚌
Can you help a family out? 😬😄 We can’t decide on the exterior color(s) for the bus OR the name. Both very important. The kids have all sorts of *wonderful* 😉 ideas... anyone else have any good ideas/suggestions for us?? 🙏🏻🙌🏼🤗😘 #hereadventuring#herebuildingaskoolie
First ornament is on the tree! This is my first year ever with a fake tree... I’m not a huge fan. But in the end it’s better for everyone right? We got a smaller tree that will fit in our future home when we can finally spend our holidays in it instead of working on it. And I can’t wait, but For now it wouldn’t be complete without a bus!!
