a man. a woman. a plan. a vanagon.

On May 5, 2011, we picked up our baby: a 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia camper.

We don't have an actual baby, so we decided to pour all our time, money and effort into a 27-year-old vehicle.

These are our summer stories, travels, pictures, projects, adventures, lusted-after accessories and anything else that's fit to print.

words and things by vanessa. photos by corey. usually.

Road Trip 2013: Night pool.
A much-needed vanagon break at a fancy hotel in Charleston. 
After days and days on the road, we wanted real beds. So we booked two nights at The Mills House and slept soundly and went swimming every day.
