We are actors by trade (and met in a play) and we do some other stuff too, but we find we are happiest when traveling! We recently set out in our new-to-us bus, Indie (short for Indicator indicator, the Greater Honeyguide). Doin that #vanlife thing!
Well, I am an actor, playwright, and dialect and accent coach, and also play some music and know a little bit of a handful of languages, and Maria is an actor and bartender/barista and also enjoys horseback riding, architecture and photography. So if you want to learn how to mix a nice cocktail on horseback while singing in a British accent, you know, hit us up.
No, Indie is enough! We do have a few birds, but they aren’t real.
Lake Shore Drive was nice. At the time of writing we are staying on an alpaca farm. We also don’t mind a Walmart parking lot in a pinch.
Maria is from Chinatown, NY, born and raised, and Danny was born uptown but grew up mostly in Amherst, Massachusetts. When we’re not in our bus, we’re based in NYC.
We have a short “skoolie,” aka a converted short school bus. It’s a 2006 Chevrolet Express Cutaway 3500, 19’10” long (including the mirrors) and between 9-10 ft high (we have installed a maxxair ceiling fan with a removable rain cover that adds some height). The bus is completetely self-contained with a bed, dinette, sink and greywater tank, propane stove, fridge, and toilet.
We would gladly host Danny and Maria again. They were considerate guests and are fun, adventurous, interesting people who we could easily enjoy spending more time with.
DannyandMaria slipped in and out on their way North. No trouble at all and would welcome them back anytime.
