Van Life

Get On The Bus


We’ve teamed up with four different adventurers who make the open road their home, and each week this month one of them will take over our Instagram to give you a look at how they live la vida van. So, hop on. See how they roll, where they go, what they do when they get there. It’s gonna be an awesome ride…Week one, @TheBusandUs in their 1975 VW Bus.

The Bus and Us

Starting the Journey on March 6th!

Hi there. We’re Tessa and Dillon @The Bus and Us. In 2014, we bought a 1975 VW Bus in Alaska, fixed it up, quit our jobs, and drove on down to the southern tip of South America. We haven’t stopped rolling since. Join us on our trusty rig, Rita, as we take over Yakima’s Instagram on March 6th!

Carabiner Coffee

Taking Over on March 13th

Hey there! We’re Carabiner Coffee Co. based out of a 71′ VW bus, and currently stationed in Boulder, CO. We sell the best fresh brewed coffee you could ever dream of. The van frees us to go where we want to go, and bring the coffee to the people. We take over Yakima’s Instagram on the 13th – check us out and share the stoke!

Brianna Madia

Taking over on March 20th

Hi! I’m Brianna. I live in a big, orange 1990 Ford E350 Van named Bertha. I travel with my husband, Keith, and our two dogs, Bucket and Dagwood. We spend most of our time on – and off – the road in southern Utah where we explore canyons, climb rocks, backpack, kayak, and write Instagram captions. On March 20th, we get our hands on Yakima’s.

Our Home On Wheels

Closing out the trip on March 27th

We are Jace and Giddi. Our converted Sprinter Van is our Home on Wheels, and we’ve taken to the road to make our passion for nature and the outdoors a daily happening. The goal isn’t to live IN the van, but to live OUT of the van – climbing, hiking, scuba diving, biking – enjoying the activities we love. We will share our van life on Instagram starting March 27th.
