Bus Conversion: Kitchens, Bathrooms and Miscellaneous

It seems we are due an update. As these things go - in this case blogging the conversion - the momentum has waned, but fear not, the conversion itself carries on as strong as ever. Since we last spoke, a lot has happened. The kitchen is pretty darn far along, as is the bathroom. These will be the focus of this post, but do note that since the last update, there have been other ancillary bits of progress as well. These include, but are not limited to, full installation of the ceiling boards, installation and plumbing of a propane tank under [...]

Excursion 1: 11,000ft Shakedown – Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2017

Even though Vicaribus isn't finished with it's makeover, there's no reason it should remain confined to it's claustrophobic backyard parking pen. Sure it gets it's daily Home Depot run and the odd overnighter at the shop, but sometimes a bus just has to get out and stretch it's legs and see the world. Rather than warming up with something simple for our first real excursion, we decided that we might as well just dive in and give Vicaribus a real challenge. The challenge we came up with was driving up a big ass mountain and spending the night at 11,000 feet [...]

Bus Conversion: Tearing down the house (Part 2 – Getting floored)

Part 2 of the teardown did not prove to be as hard as part 1, though I'm not sure if I feel this way because it was entirely true, or if it is because I waited so long to write about it here. Time distorts the memory. Lucky for us, our bus came with the seats pre-removed by the previous owners, so that was a task we did not have to endure. These owners also laid down a nice looking faux wood floor that, for it's purposes, looked pretty good. Unfortunately, this flooring had to go so that we could get down [...]

The Beginning of a New Journey (and a little history too)

Life is full of choices, and making choices is the only true freedom we have. Sometimes, however, life just happens without us having any say in the matter. It may not seem obvious, but we have a choice in these happenings as well... the choice to decide how we react! And oh boy, oh boy, oh boy has life come at me with some changes in 2017! And you know what!? I for one am freaking thrilled! Let me give you a little back story to lead up to what's happening now. I no longer remember exactly how I started off life. Sad? I don't [...]
