Living life in a converted school bus 📍Oregon Coast
My bus has around 160 square feet of living space. With this small of a space everything in the bus has a purpose, function, or means a lot to me. Ive been renovating the bus since we have been on the Oregon Coast and have started downsizing some of the things i’ve accumulated over the past two years. If you live on the road already or wanted to live in something this size, what are somethings you couldn’t live without?
Living in the bus has made it possible for me to see places I never thought I would see before. I’ve always wanted to share about the places I see and some of the things i’ve been able to experience since living on the road. One question I get asked a lot is “what has been your favorite place you have been to so far?”, and I don’t really have just one answer for that. I’m going to start sharing more on my blog about some of those places that come to mind when I get asked that question. I decided to start off with Telephone Cove, one of the only places I’ve been to so far where I’ve been able to back the buses deck up to the water. It’s easily one of the most peaceful spots I’ve ever camped at. I put a link in my bio as well as in my story if you would like to read more about camping at Telephone Cove

For the past couple months @somedrifters and I were in a lot of the same areas at the same time but never met up. We crossed paths in Wyoming, Yellowstone, Montana, Idaho, and now in Oregon. They have hands down the coolest skoolie on the road and I have always wanted to see it in person. Last night they texted me and invited @ littleroamer and I to breakfast and coffee today with them. We finally met this morning! Jeff and Brit are awesome people and their bus was even more amazing in person! We had so much fun hanging out with them. Thank you so much for the coffee, breakfast, and allowing us into your amazing little home @somedrifters. It was great finally meeting you guys and getting to chat for a little while this morning! Safe travels. Until our paths cross again ✌️
This sums up our week so far 😴
Living life in the bus has brought me more good then I could have possibly ever imagined. I’ve been to places I only wished I could visit one day. Seen things I never thought I would see in my lifetime, except behind a screen. Had experiences I never thought I would experience in my life. And I’ve met some of the most amazing people i’ve ever crossed paths with; people such as @uncooldean, @tioaventurabus, @littlehouseonthehwy, and @adventures in huck phinn. And if you didn’t know me and my girlfriend @ littleroamer met on the road in Quartzsite, Arizona! This bus has already brought so much happiness to my life. I’m excited to see where else it will take us 🚌 Photo by @ littleroamer
Back in April we drove through seven states! We were making our way to Idaho. We were moving pretty fast but we did make time to stop at several national parks and some other cool and interesting places along the way. I haven’t shared much from a lot of the places we have been on the road. I was thinking about maybe blogging more on my website about the places we go, would you be interested in that?
Two years ago today I quit my job, and sold almost all of my belongings, to chase this crazy dream I had for years. Best decision I ever made!
Fishing with my dad will always be one of my favorite memories I had with him. It’s something I will always wish we could do together again. This is my first father’s day since he passed away unexpectedly last October. Losing him was and still is the hardest thing I’ve dealt with in my life. My dad would call me almost daily and ask where I was and if i’ve seen anything cool or interesting lately, he really loved that I chased my dream to live on the road. He was always one of the first people I called when I stopped somewhere new. Sometimes now I'll still catch myself starting to call him or taking a photo to send him. This father's day be sure to tell your dad or father-figure you love them. Life can happen unexpectedly and we never know what tomorrow holds. I love and miss you dad
