Colin Gage and Marni DeRyckere

Colin is 52 and a chiropractor and Marni is 49 and works in Early Childhood Education and is an Infant Development Consultant. They met in December 2018, and “Mo” was already sitting in the yard waiting to be converted. Mo was a 2008 GMC Bluebird handy-dart bus and was their first conversion, then they moved on to a 1990 GMC 3500 Vandura for their kids to use, and the “Grande Finale” their conversion of “The Kraken”.

The process of all the conversions brought about a lot of thought, planning, creativity, and HOURS of blood sweat, and tears. All three conversions required them to work long hours together (after work, before work, and during lunch hours). Every moment was treasured and with each build, they learned what worked and what needed a bit of tweaking. It was a steep learning curve, which required a lot of patience.

They love following like-minded people on social media and if you see “The Kraken” on the road, be sure to give them a honk and a wave hello!
