In 2006 when we signed up for iStock we had no idea what we were getting into or where iStock would lead us. Today we can say that we still don’t know where we are going but we know how we will get there. We are really happy to introduce you Brandon – our newly rebuilt 1979 Riviera that we paid for with our iStock earnings.

But wait that’s not all…
When we decided last March that we would get a little VW Bus we had an idea in mind, an idea that could only exist in our iStock paradigm. We decided to create something we call a “Roadtrip-a-Lypse” using our iStock earnings. Roadtrip-a-Lypse is a road trip during witch we hope to meet other iStockers and to produce images for iStock. The road trip should last six months and should take us through many US states. Tomorrow our moving Lypse will start and you are all welcome to join us. For the occasion we have created a blog where you should see where we have been, where we are and where we hope we will go. At first we will “fly” south as fast as Brandon can take us because it has no heather – and it is getting cold here (in the cold we’ve rename it Brrrrrandon). After that, we have no set destination – you will have to follow us to know where we’re going.

So again, thank you iStock to make this dream come true for us, and we really hope to meet you on our journey.

Claude and Manon aka twohumans

You need to load that thing up with a half ton of garbage and take it down to the dump and get some pictures! Best to do it the day after Thanksgiving.

Hey, isn't it compulsory to paint these busses with hippy colours and images?


Have a great trip!

Good luck to the three of you. Brandon is certainly a photogenic model - can't believe you didn't keep the red velvet passenger seat, although it did look like it possibly had things living in it! Happy trails.

I like the "before" pictures of Brandon on your blog.  That was a lot of work you did to her.  Or is it a him.  Good luck on following your dreams.

Have a great trip twohumans. This reminded me of Julio Cortazar and Carol Dunlop's famous trip from Paris to Marseilles with their VW van--Autonauts of the Cosmoroute. Go iStock autonauts!!!

Many years decades ago I had to drive across the US from east to west in January. Being a typical northerner I figured I'd just head a little south to avoid hitting any snow. So, starting in New Jersey headed south for I40 and figured I'd just cruise along to California. Got snowed in Oklahoma City for 2 days under about 14 inches of snow.
