  • Multi-tasking at its finest. 🙌🏼 Murphy loves being held and pretty much all the attention she can get. Sometimes I have to throw her on my hip and keep working...I am a crazy dog lady, and that’s okay. 😂

  • need help - I need more power! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For all the diesel heads out there that might be able to help:  I have a 2003 model year 230hp DT466E with Allison 3060. Recently rebuilt. I go 12 mph up 8-10% grades and often get stuck on speed bumps or steep driveways after a cold start. (Rig weighs 36k lbs plus a 3.5k lb car towed behind usually) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
what I am looking for: someone that knows exactly how to get my current engine to 300hp+. The dealers are telling me they can only do an electronic (programming) upgrade to 250 Hp. But I’ve heard this engine came in a 300+ hp version but maybe the dealers just can’t get approval from Navistar to upgrade injectors or whatever is needed to get me there. Having a hard time figuring this out and I’ve called like 40 mechanics/dealers now.  Does anyone know if there a way to get me to 300hp? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also side note: I tried some injectors (Code bd) and turbo upgrade (H2) from Hypermax. They smoked like a house on fire. Out of control. So I had to swap back to stock...but they did give the power I needed. Check the second photo above.  I know theoretically someone can program my ECM probably to cut the smoke down low before the boost...but haven’t found anyone that knows how to do this to my exact model year and also that could be a long back and forth no guarantees. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am really hoping someone can get real detailed and help me! I would be forever grateful. I’m pretty desperate at this point. I really don’t want to have to do an engine swap... also I have a new rear axle, my gvwr chassis wise is all good, just need the HP under the hood to match.

  • Ich dachte ich verrate Euch heute mal ein paar Dinge über uns damit Ihr wisst, wen Ihr hier begleitet 😁😁 💕 Wir haben uns mit 9 Jahren kennengelernt 💕 Seitdem sind wir engste Freunde 💕 Wir waren mit 18 Jahren schon einmal für drei Jahre ein Paar, haben es damals dann aber nicht hinbekommen und haben uns mit schmerzenden Herzen getrennt. Die tiefe Freundschaft hat daran aber keinen Schaden genommen 💕 Wir haben jeweils immer zum gleichen Zeitpunkt geheiratet und Kinder bekommen. Unsere insgesamt vier Kinder sind 8 und 4 Jahre alt. Ich habe zwei Jungs, Tobias zwei Mädchen 💕 Wir haben uns während der vergangenen 12 Jahre des Getrenntseins insgeheim sehr vermisst 💕 Vor knapp zwei Jahren war klar dass wir ohne einander nicht sein können und wir sind beide den schmerzhaften Weg der Trennung gegangen, was mit Kindern alles andere als einfach ist 💕 Wir haben so viel gemeinsame Zeit hergegeben, dass sie uns jetzt das Wertvollste ist. Deswegen verbringen wir sie am liebsten gemeinsam, beim Reisen und in der Natur 💕 Unser langsam steigendes passives Einkommen das wir uns aufbauen ermöglicht uns immer mehr freie Zeit bei finanzieller Absicherung

Sooo, das waren glaube ich die gröbsten Infos😅

Wie sind Eure Geschichten?

  • We had another #busbirth here in the #skoolie tonight. Emmi midwifed her cat Venus as she birthed 3 new tiny furry balls of pure love into the world, creating the most peaceful birth space I’ve ever seen a cat birth in with twinkle lights, rain music, and rose quartz. Unfortunately one kitten didn’t make it. We aren’t sure what happened exactly, but we don’t feel the need to know. Em is SO SAD. So sad. But this is a beautiful opportunity to teach the kids how natural birth and death are. We created the most beautiful burial box for the kitten and surrounded her body with wildflowers. Em named her Jonah. We will honor her life tomorrow in ceremony. #fulltimefamily #buslife #catbirth

  • Hot off the Editior and on the TUBE!! As you know we just installed Propane 2.0  The old propane install was going to cause us problems and we knew it immediately when we did the install.  We felt that we bought the propane tank and made it fit and that just wasn't good enough for what we are trying to do.  Propane 2.0 is a year later from the original install and it is exactly what we wanted. Watch the video and give us a sub while you are there!

  • Got half of my curtains up today! Even did some fancy lil leaf stitches along the outside edges! I'd say my first experience with sewing went pretty well and I found that I enjoyed it for the most part! The colors are a little off in this photo, but everything's really starting to tie together!! #skoolie #skoolieconversion #skoolielife #buslife

  • ...They shall rise up with wings like eagles... Isaiah 40:31.

29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,

31 But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

New King James Version / NKJV

  • This drawer is one of my favourite things in our kitchen, it might seem like overkill for such a tiny space but I really felt like sorting our waste and doing our part for the environment is important no matter where we live!
There's even a sneaky space at the back for the reusable shopping bags I try my best not to forget to take to the grocery store 😂
