A few weeks ago we met Nico and Lola of Kombipalnorte.com in a Walmart parking lot. They had travelled from Argentina to Alaska and were headed cross country to travel back down the opposite coast in a 1981 VW Bus! You have no idea how excited I was to meet them! I felt like a wannabe traveller next to this couple who was actually doing it! It was so refreshing to meet them and to check out their van! It was also a wake up call to hurry up and get going! They fixed up their VW before they left (like we are doing) but they certainly didn't worry about some of the stuff we have added like our new stereo and speakers or flat screen tv or even a fridge. It make me feel like a glamper! But it also made me realize just how much stuff we don't really need! It was a huge reminder that although we have gotten rid of so much we may still need to get rid of more to make it work. Anyway, meeting them was the the kick in the butt we needed! We both have been inspired to step it up a notch and get this bus ready and get on our way! I'm sure it felt like I was interrogating them with some of the really personal questions I was asking them but their patient responses made us feel confident that this really can happen! The worries I had turned out not even to be an issue for them. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us! We hope you continue to have an amazing journey! The picture is a postcard we bought from them.
