It’s all fun and games until your landing gear bolt snaps in two places. Just when we’ve got the hang of setup and teardown (Michael is backing in like a pro) something goes haywire… one of the two landing gear legs stops going down. This can only mean one thing… the landing gear bolt snapped… … Read more Broken Landing Gear – Epic Mini Life S1E6
In this video we document a trip to Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The audio was terrible for the most part, and we’ve included subtitles for the important parts. The rest is music! If you like it, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up! We’ve been on the road now for a few … Read more Free Range Tatanka – Epic Mini Life S1E5

A friend of mine (from Boulder) offered this reply to one of our Facebook posts. I started to write a simple reply, but it turned into enough to warrant its own blog post. Strap in. 🙂 You know… the public aversion to tiny homes is partially due to the projected hubris around “how small I … Read more Tiny/Small living and reaching a larger audience
We’ve been planning, discussing, learning, and otherwise practically obsessed with this new chapter in the journey of life. The reality is starting to sink in, and it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. The truth of the matter is that as the time nears, the more we realize how much more there is left to do, … Read more Launch day is upon us, securing Leeloo, and the first leg!
I stumbled upon this post declaring the “covered wagon” as the first tiny home. This totally makes sense. In fact, I was thinking this morning about how a pickup pulling a 5th wheel is the logical evolution of the horse and covered wagon. Everything we need will be packed nicely inside of Leeloo (our name … Read more How many horses does it take to pull your life?
As it turns out, letting go of the stuff wasn’t the hard part. Well, for the most part. Physically getting rid of it is proving to be far more difficult. UPDATE: We’re changing the plans a bit after realizing that we are in total control of our calendar and location. That sort of autonomy is … Read more Best Laid Plans – Epic Mini Life S1E2
