A little background about who we are and what we do:
My name is Kapono Fuller, I'm a CNC machinist out of Dayton, Nevada. As a transplant from Hawaii I've spent the last 15 years in the Nevada desert. I have an extensive background in race car fabrication and automotive mechanical work. I've been building and tinkering for as long as I can remember. My real passion for cars started nearly 10 years ago when my dad brought home a 1956 Volkswagen bug that had been built into a tube chassis drag car. Over the years we have raced the bug constantly gaining knowledge and going faster. Today the car has been 8.86 at over 155 miles an hour in the quarter mile. My lovely girlfriend, Kyra, and I have been together for over 3 years now. We have always been motivated and creative individuals so with the addition of our bus we are hoping to stretch our legs and move on to the next chapter in our life together.

Hey there. Kyra here. I am a born and raised Nevadan and I have lived in this little town for most of my life. I am currently enrolled in college and am 7 credits away from my second degree focusing in deaf studies. Once I graduate, I plan on interpreting and helping the deaf children in America toward bright futures.
My lovely boyfriend and I were lucky enough to find a bus for a little money, but a lot of potential. I have great ideas for when the bus becomes an expression of who we are and the dreams we have achieved on this adventure now just around the corner.

Until now, all of our travels have been enjoyed from the back of a blue ranger. Camping at the edge of the beach in the bed of a tiny truck. If these moments were amazing, living the same life but in our home?! Must be magic because I don't know if it is real.
