Vicaribus – A Super Serious Bus Conversion2018-12-02T09:37:39+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?

We are now in Florida, where we will spend most of the winter. After that…. North Carolina? We’re not sure.

WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?

So far we have traveled through New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California and then straight over to Florida.

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

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

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 [...]

Five Awesome Free Campsites in Utah

Utah is plastered in amazing landscapes begging to be explored - from the canyons and rock formations of the south to the mountain and lakes of the north.  Everywhere you look there is beauty and luckily there are tons of great free camping options to soak it all in.  Here are some of our favorite free camping spots from our month long stay in Utah: Tom's Best Spring Closest Town: Bryce, UT GPS Coordinates: 37°44'25.3"N 112°15'24.5"W [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
