Vicaribus – A Super Serious Bus Conversion2020-10-25T07:23:02-06:00

WHAT’S A VICARIBUS?

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

Previously we enjoyed a year-long journey gallivanting around the country exploring all of the beautiful places and meeting all of you beautiful people. We shared as much of it as we could here so you, too, can vicariously live the bus life.

We then took a break for a while, traveling without the bus, but have now returned to full-time bus life while we hide from COVID and hunt for the perfect property to make our non-bus life dreams come true.

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’re back! After a long hiatus enjoying non-bus travel life, as of September 2020, we have returned to full-time living in Vicaribus. We have explored the coast of Maine, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the postcard-perfect land of Vermont and are now posting up in the Shenandoah Valley for a while in western Virginia.

WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?

So far we have traveled through New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California and then straight over to Florida, then straight up to Michigan, then straight down to North Carolina with a repair layover in Tennessee, and then straight up to Maine and over to New Hampshire, Vermont, New York and now Virginia!

You can see everywhere we have been and where we plan to go on Our Maps page. (NOTE: no longer up-to-date… sorry)

HOW CAN YOU FOLLOW ALONG?

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

OUR LATEST UPDATES AND POSTS

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

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 [...]

Vicaribupdate 7 – Lake Powell, Arizonutah and Kanab, Utah

After an interesting morning departure from the Sedona area, we made our way up to Lake Powell, just outside of Page, Arizona. Lake Powell is ginormous. Little known fact: Lake Powell's total shoreline can measure from nearly 2,000 miles, using fairly standard measuring techniques, to infinity using an infinitely small unit of measure. We spent 4 nights here, and 1 full day on a boat in the water. After Lake Powell, we stayed a few nights [...]

The Best Camping Spots in New Mexico

We spent 21 nights at 13 different camping spots in New Mexico in April 2018 and compiled a list of our favorites to share with you.  We broke them up into categories so that there is something for everyone from RV parks to tent camping and more!     Top RV Park: Santa Fe Skies RV Park Website: www.santafeskiesrvpark.com Address:14 Browncastle Ranch Santa Fe, New Mexico 87508 map Price: $45 and up Description: This is a nice RV [...]

Best Random New Mexico Road Trip Stops

After driving over 1000 miles and spending just under 4 weeks in New Mexico, we’ve settled on our favorite road trips stops.  Interestingly, most of our favorites were in southern New Mexico, and could easily be combined into a shorter trip. Perhaps, it was the cold weather and engine troubles we had while in the northern parts that kept them from being our favorites?  Either way these places are sure to please and should be added [...]
