Accidental Unschooling

We’ve been in Wander Bus for 5 weeks and in that time I gave us permission to take a break from homeschooling and just be. It’s been a wild adjustment,…

From Urban Life to Skoolie Life

Our first bedtime in Bussie that felt familiar and encorporates parts of our routine. We’ve been away from the blog for awhile. Almost 2 months, actually. I’ve tried a few times…

Coleman Road Trip LXE Propane Grill

We love cooking outdoors, especially when camping. There's just something about the open air and flame-kissed food. Part of the problem with camping and grilling is that it's just messy…

About us

We are a full-time traveling family of 5 who purchased a school bus, converted it into an RV, and named her Wander Bus. We got rid of everything we owned and left our Chicago life behind to travel America full-time. 

We have no idea how long we are going to be on the road, most of the time we have no real idea where we are headed until days before its time to pack up and move on, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We are experiencing life as a family, celebrating our National Parks, discovering our countries history, and always dreaming about when we can get back to Walt Disney World.

We run five different websites, three focused on travel (  and this site), and two focused on the theater/performing arts industries in Chicago and Kansas City (Perform.Ink. KC.Perform.Ink). 

We are also the voices behind the RV Miles podcast, and the America’s National Parks Podcast.

If you’d like to talk about partnering/advertising with us you can visit our media page on RV Miles. We’ve worked with brands like L.L Bean, NiteIze, FMCA, GoSun Solar, American Backcountry, Thrive Market and more. We’d love to chat with you!

So, this is our journey. It’s a journey built on risk, adventure, trust, and love because we know not all who wander are lost. Welcome, and we’ll see you on the road!
