3 Years (And Counting) On The Open Road

Admin

"We feel like we've just begun."



In November 2012, James and Rachel of Idle Theory Bus quit their jobs, gave away their stuff, and moved into Sunshine, a 1976 VW Bus. Ever since, they've traveled the U.S. full time, working, playing, and doing nothing under the wide sky. ln their own words, "We left to escape a modern lifestyle, which seemed to us destructive at worst and unfulfilling at best. Now, instead of escaping, we purposefully create a new, better life based on adventure and the unknown, seeking balance and reconnecting with our generous earth. We've been on the road for 3 years now, and we feel like we've just begun."

Recently we escaped for a weekend to a little camp spot up in the Catskill Mountains. Little did we know, a storm was rolling in so the night was spent bundled up listening to rain on the tent roof.
