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.

HOW CAN YOU FOLLOW ALONG?

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!

Our Vicaribupdates recount our recent travels, while other posts share some of our tips, favorites and more.

Vicaribupdate – Sun Valley, Redfish Lake and Goldbug Hot Springs

In central Idaho sits a magical land that goes by the name of the Sawtooth National Forest. We spent about two weeks in the area and easily could have spent two months more. We split our time between Sun Valley and Redfish Lake, but were able to get out and explore thanks to some amazing friends in the area who let us borrow a car while we were there! Little known fact: You can get the [...]

What To Do With Your Dog While Visiting Utah’s Mighty Five National Parks

The National Park system is a treasure of our country with amazing sights and stunning landscapes to be seen and enjoyed, with five fantastic parks in Southern Utah alone. The one downside to National Parks is they are not the most dog friendly places. Most National Parks have few (if any) places that pups are allowed and if you want to do that iconic hike or ride that shuttle to that breathtaking viewpoint you will have to [...]

Vicaribupdate 11 – Northern Utah and Southern Idaho

A lot of time, distance, non-bus travels, exciting news and more have happened since the last Vicaribupdate. We have worked our a way from Moab through bits of central and northern Utah, and now up into Idaho. During this period we also took a a quick beach vacation to Virginia and added some new content to the site. Little known fact: Only 1 in 10 Americans have ever heard of Idaho (and they like it that [...]

Vicaribupdate 10 – In and Around Moab, Utah

If you like amazing national parks, stunning geological wonders, dinosaurs, hiking, mountain biking, rivers, off-road vehicling [sic], heat, Memorial Day shenanigans with friends from Denver and/or tasty foods, ten days in Moab is just about enough time to scratch the surface of this giant adult playground. While we didn't get to do any off-roading or mountain biking (which is ridiculous since Moab is the birthplace of the mountain bike), we sure got in plenty of the [...]

Vicaribupdate 9 – Bryce, Escalante, Capitol Reef, Goblins and More

10 days have passed since our last Vicaribupdate, but about 20 days worth of awesomeness has transpired. Strap in for a long ride through some amazing locations in Southern Utah. Highlights include Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, Goblin Valley State Park and Little Wild Horse Canyon. Little Known Fact: Southern Utah is the farthest south you can be and still be in Utah. Bryce Canyon National Park Last we [...]

Vicaribupdate 8 – Zion National Park

Zion National Park is a well-oiled machine. It is the Disneyland of hiking. The streets of Springdale, the town at the foot of the canyon, resemble those of a bustling metropolis, except every person has on some sort of pack and is either on their way to, or just completed, a hike. Never have I seen anywhere like this, but, this is my first big-time national park aside from the Grand Canyon. Little known fact: When [...]
