Vicaribus – A Super Serious Bus Conversion 2018-07-30T01:15:21+00:00

WHAT’S A VICARIBUS?

Vicaribus – like vicarious, but with a ‘b’ – is our bus that we lovingly converted into our tiny home on wheels.

Right now we are in the midst of a year long journey gallivanting around the country exploring all of the beautiful places and meeting all of you beautiful people.

We’re sharing as much of this journey as we can so you can so that you, too, can vicariously live the bus life.

WHO ARE THE PASSENGERS?

We are three people – one of whom happens to technically be a dog – who have decided to get rid of all of our stuff, put working on hold (mostly), and to get out and live a little.

For more info about Heather, Nick and Miles, head over to the About Vicaribus and the Passengers Page.

WHERE ARE WE NOW AND WHAT’S NEXT?

Right now we are in western Washington and will spend the next few months working our way down the Pacific coast through Washington, Oregon and California. In November, we will work our way back to the East Coast and spend the winter in Florida.

WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?

So far we have traveled through New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho and Washington.

You can see everywhere we have been and where we plan to go on Our Maps page.

We post all the pretty things on Instagram. We create little vignettes of bus life for our YouTube Channel. We share it all on Facebook. We share a bunch of data we collect on our Live Data page. And, we write all about it on our blog, which you can subscribe to right here!

Vicaribupdate – San Juan Islands, Seattle and Another Breakdown

After nearly 7,000 miles of driving since leaving Denver four months ago, we finally found the Pacific coast, sort of. Our first stop on the coast was at San Juan Island, which is technically in the Salish Sea. From there we worked our way down the eastern side of the Olympic Peninsula trying to get to Mt. Rainier, but failed, breaking down just a couple of miles outside the park entrance. Once that was sorted out, [...]

But How Do You Get Mail? Getting Packages on the Road While Traveling

One of the most common questions travelers (including us) get asked is "how do you get mail?" And, while we are in the day and age where paper snail mail is not all that important, packages (particularly Amazon Prime packages) are.  Here we will talk about how we get mail, and all the different ways we have tried (both successfully and unsuccessfully) to get packages while traveling on the road. Getting Mail on the Road This [...]

7 Reasons You Should Go To Idaho

Here are seven reasons you should go to Idaho. 1. Mountains There are numerous gorgeous mountain ranges in Idaho and we recommend hiking into them to get the best perspective, but many are beautiful to [...]

Vicaribupdate – Central Idaho to the Coast of Washington

Central Idaho was amazing - and several weeks ago in our journey. Since then we have traveled through Boise, worked our way to northern Idaho around Coeur d'Alene, and cut all the way across Washington to the coast. Idaho continued to delight us throughout and Washington started off extremely hot (weird), but has now cooled down allowing us to soak in the amazing sights, sounds and smells of the Pacific Northwest. Little known fact: After hitting [...]

Three Month Reflections – I Think We’re Getting the Hang of This!

As of yesterday, we have officially been living on the road for three months.  It feels like we started forever ago and yesterday all at the same time.  Overall, we feel like we are really getting the hang of this and have worked out a bunch of kinks since we started traveling.  Though, we still have plenty to learn and work on at the same time.  We figured now was a good time to reflect and celebrate [...]
