VW Van Man

1971 VW Van

1971 VW Van

My friend Ben has a sustainable hobby. He’s been fixing up his 1971 Volkswagen Van for years and he treats it like a baby. He only drives it during the good weather months and in the summer months it’s his DIY project.

He also spends the summer months having fun in his van – it’s his camper too! He loads up his paddle boards and off they go every chance they get traveling to beaches to catch the waves. At the end of a day of surfing and paddling on the ocean, settling into the comfy customized VW is the perfect way to have sweet dreams of tomorrow’s waves.

Ben’s van is one of my favorite vehicles; it’s old but he has made it new again so he’s recycling it and it’s beautiful!

Looking forward to the day when we will have chickens and have to learn to be at one with them, we better be able to pick out the Rooster though! We are looking at laying chickens for their eggs, ability to clean the garden and their waste for our bio-gas system.

Easy to do, grow them in containers or a garden close to the kitchen so you’ll use them because you see them everyday. They’ll also add color to world.
