This past week Owen and I sat down to look for a picture and remembered that we had yet to share our favorite images from 2017. We know, we know...we're about five months late getting this posted, but better late then never right?
For the past six months our lives have been completely consumed by building out Amelia. We're so thankful to have had you guys with us every step of the way with suggestions and words of encouragement! We've received a ton of really great feedback from you all about how much you enjoy watching the build process so I thought that as our build is drawing to a close we could point you in the
This week I want to start off by showing you a few pictures of the various phases of life the bed area in Amelia has gone through during this build. I think it's the best way to truly appreciate how she looks now.
The last step before we could install our top cabinets was getting our button latches and hinges installed in the doors. I was under the impression that it might take a bit of work (like seemingly everything else)
At some point this week I realized, I have worked on Amelia everyday for the last month! With some of our progress lately it has opened up the ability to work on so many different projects around Amelia that I haven't even considered taking a day off because there has been so many things on my to-do list.
Hope you all have had a great week. We, as usual, kept ourselves very busy over this past week! We had some exciting things happen that I'm so excited to tell you about! We've gotten a lot of questions recently about our ETA to get back on the road.
Sorry about not getting anything posted last week. We had to make a quick run up to North Carolina to tend to a family matter. On the way there we got a chance to experience the Snowpocalypse in our old hometown of Atlanta, Georgia!
This past week has been pretty different from everything to date. Up until now we've been rolling smoothly through the build. The order in which we've been tackling projects has been very clear, and there was a lot needing to be worked on all at once. Until this week.
Hello again my friends, MAK here! It's crazy to think that it has already been a week since we did the last update. This has been the 4th week of work that we have done on Amelia, and it was largely spent fiberglassing in holes on the exterior.
MAK here! We've been really busy these first few weeks doing sporadic burst of work on Amelia. Going forward we'll be posting our weekly updates on the build out. This time I'll be catching you up on about 3 weeks of work.
We thought it would be fun to give you guys a tour of our new home, a 1985 Toyota Sunrader 4x4, named Amelia. This tour is of her in her VERY original state and is likely how she came from the factory.
We have been toying with the idea of starting up a YouTube channel for a while now, so we thought it was high time that we make it happen. Our first video is live! It covers our build out of Stanley with a full walk through. Give it a watch, and follow the channel if you are into that sort of thing! Enjoy!
Allow us to introduce our new home! She is a 1985 Toyota Sunrader 4x4. There were only 28 4x4s ever made and we somehow got lucky enough to have one. We found her on a Toyota forum for sale in Bozeman, Montana. Here are some of the stats:
June started with us leaving Boulder, Colorado where we had been hanging with some friends. We made it to Mt. Evans where we saw a lady moose as we were driving into camp! The next day we did some bouldering up on Mt. Evans with Thomas and Justin.
We started our May in Sedona, AZ. Our original plan was to be there just for a weekend, but we ended up staying a little longer to try and get more exploring out of our time there. Our campsite happened to be very close to the ancient cliff dwellings and pictographs of Palatki Heritage Site.
