Get Me Out of Here!!!

Last year I started a dream project, to convert a VW Bus into a mobile home for the people! The plan, to drive from Chile to Alaska; opening my tiny home for free to people who wanted an adventure on a budget.

But now, 13 months on, I have spent the last 2 months stuck in a mechanics trying to rebuild the engine for the 7th time!  I have just bought a replacement motor in Costa Rica, which didn't even get me out of the neighborhood and is in worse condition than my original.  

The problem is there has been lots of request from people to come stay and in the bus, and although this is the aim of the project, I don't feel it is fair to subject other people to all of these problems. 

A new motor is $3,000, but I have already put in an obscene amount of money into this project and for me it is just not possible anymore.  So I am turning to see if you can help me get me out of here and help me finally re-open my doors to strangers


The whole trip is documented on YouTube, so you can get an idea what it is about:

Feel free to come and stay (if we ever get back on the road)

.....the door is always open
