With money donated from friends and family, we purchased a used Ford Transit bus. No budget for modifications, we removed the bench seats, added fake parquet flooring and filled it with personal effects we just could not abandon. 

On September 30th, we left Austria heading for Italy, just in time before the next lockdown. With no room for anything but our personal effects, we were resigned to sleeping in a tent until we could create living quarters inside our van, the Research Vessel Be.

Since October 2020, RV Be has been our home and production facility.
