The Amateur Adventurers- We Bought a Bus

Hello all!

Well it’s pretty real now.  We just bought a bus!  It’s a 2004 International half bus and it is pretty awesome.  We are currently in the process of converting it into a mobile adventure home for a 6 month road trip starting this December.  The plan is to insulate it for the winter time, build beds, seating, a small “kitchen” and plenty of storage for our mountain bikes, skis and rock climbing gear.

Our plan for the trip is to head south and then west climbing, mountain biking, and backcountry skiing across the US and parts of Canada. We have created this website as a way for friends, family and like-minded individuals to follow our progress on the trip.  We also hope to encourage others to head out and embark on their own adventures no matter the size!  You don’t need to be rich, lucky or a professional athlete to do what you love in some of the coolest places on the planet.  A drive for adventure and a bit of risk taking to get out of your normal routine is all you need. We hope to see others posting back about some of their adventures as well as sharing some of what they learned with the community

We are extremely excited about finishing up this bus and heading out in just over one month!  Stay tuned over the next few weeks for our progress with the bus and plans for the trip.  Thanks for reading
