Meet Dolores!! My beautiful boyfriend, Broc, and I bought this beast two years ago and built it out for a real transformation Tuesday. When we responded to a post on Craigslist for a $1,600 van, our expectations weren't too high and we didn't even know if we seriously wanted to take on this mission. Well, when we found out that Dolores was born in 1992 (the same year as us) it was game over. With the help of our talented roommate, we built the inside into our dream van.

We packed up our pup and headed west. We lasted approximately two months before reality hit and the whole not-really-working thing started to take it's toll. Sadly, we handed Dolores off to some new owners last year and are now experiencing tragedy that is Bay Area rent. 

At least we will always have these photos to cherish of a time where we had nothing to do and nowhere to be. A tangible thing we can look back and see just when our love for each other grew roots.
