This blog is a place where Lucie and Craig share their new adventure of living and learning (and earning our living) It took Craig a little more than 5 years and a lot of patience to convince Lucie to give this lifestyle a try. After practicing for 5 summers living in an RV parked on Lake Champlain, Lucie agreed to give up their apartment and move into our 1983 vintage bus full-time. (June 2013)
The bus is a 1983 BlueBird WanderLodge. Although he would prefer to have his '98 Honda ST-11 motorcycle in tow, Craig compromised by agreeing to tow along a vehicle Lucie could drive also (a 2003 Saturn) (UPDATE: Saturn died - we got a 2000 Jeep..) (UPDATE: The Jeep divorced us and the guy who bought is sold us his 'shop car' - 2003 PT Cruiser)
We are starting this blog six months after leaving the apartment behind. It will most likely be a combination of our thoughts about travel, education, and technology. We seek out venues that inspire creativity and convergences of creatives as we travel. (Makerspaces, Innovative Schools and Non Profits Creative Conferences and Workshops, etc)

In 2004, he gave up his job as network administrator of Vermont's largest school district and traveled around the United States with a 1980 Allegro RV and Kawaski Nomad motorcycle. He chronicled his travels at http://users.gmavt.net/craigl/ He has been a long time admirer of the Bluebird WanderLodge and purchased his bus in 2009. He worked remotely from the road maintaining the network and IT infrastructure of his school until 2018 - where he retired.
