My dreams for a sustainable life

I have long dreamed about having a tiny home. As a kid I was fascinated with RVs, and as I got older, tour busses. The last ten years, I’ve probably spent thousands of hours fantasizing about how I would design a tour bus or a tiny house.

Fundraising for a new fiddle!

Hey guys. Today is a day off. I’m in Nashville at a hotel near the airport. I went grocery shopping for the bus (lots of organic fruits and veggies, nuts, almond milk, crackers, tortilla chips, guacamole and salsa…also baby wipes, Dr. Bronner’s Lavender soap and Mrs. Meyers Lavender Room Spray. mmmm).

I also started a crowdfunding page so that I can get a second fiddle. I had an incident the other day when we were playing with Old Crow – Read More
