I am a seasoned traveller and a trained cook. My project is to turn a school bus into a off-grid travelling kitchen, to go from here to South America, stopping at farms along the way to help out the farm and to conserve any food I can from them to serve to hungry people along the way for free.

I need to convert the bus to run off of veggie oil and to have an off-grid kitchen inside, therefor allowing the most independence from using shitty resources like gas and propane, instead using recycled vegetable oil for fueling the car and wood and sun for energy sources.

I would like to convert the bus to run off of veggie oil, so any experience in that would be amazing.

I also need to change the inside to be a sturdy, comfortable and efficient kitchen/living space.

I want to make a pedal-powered kitchen appliance tool, a solar oven and dehydrator, rockets stoves and possibly weld a wood burning oven/stove for the inside and am still looking for other off the grid solutions for things like refrigerators and such.

I want to weld a water tank and wood storage on top and cover that with solar panels.

I am staying in a duplex that my grandparents bought in the 1950's. My father lives upstairs and typically hosts travellers, as I usually do as well.

However my level of the house is not as fixed up and mostly used as storage, but I have a spare room that I can put people in, it's nothing special, but the view is great and everything essential is here.

You can find more about my project via my website link above.
