Posting 43 Days of "Blog Love": Day 5 ~ "Sun Dragon Adventures" ~

Awhile back we were driving to California for a job. On the way we stopped to visit some new friends that we hadn't yet met. Apparently there was this mother who was converting a school bus into an RV and she needed help to do the electrical so I got recruited to do it. We got to Salt Lake City, Utah, and went to Danni Carlsen's house. The next day we got to work. I was given an electrical plan drawn on a piece of paper with colored markers.

My first thought was "you got to be kidding," then as I looked closer at what she had I realized that she knew what she wanted but not how to draw it to standard plans. The drawing had different shapes and colors and the locations in a way that all I had to do was to figure out the routes. As I went through the bus I looked at the construction. It was well done with a lot of attention to detail. Danni, with the help of her children, was transforming an old schoolie into a home on wheels called Liahona. I'm sure that Liahona will treat them well.

We hung out and tent camped in their back yard (we didn't have "Gracie" yet) and learned a lot more about healthy living, big families and juicing. After finishing the job and we went on to California having made new friends; some hippies we met in Utah. The last place in the world I would expect to find some!

Danni has the blog Sun Dragon Adventures. It is about them, their bus, their adventures and even their store, Gypsy Essentials, which is a collection of hand made goodies made by the Carlsen family. She also has a blog The Purple Sprout. If you want to know about "adventures in gardening, eating healthy, homeschooling, and  life in general," then this is a great place to go.

She is an amazing person and has a great family. We are proud to call them friends. Go check them out and give some love because you will surely get some from them. 

Until tomorrow... Enjoy the journey...
