ABOUT US

Thomas

is a 1988 Mighty Mite school bus that Nick and Jessica converted into their tiny home on wheels. Purchased for  $1,000 their initial intentions were to use Thomas as their Burning Man rig... but after dedicating countless hours and funding to the conversion, they decided to challenge themselves to live with less and explore more - so they moved in for full-time adventures on the road! They utilized sustainable products and up-cycled materials as much as possible. Being an '88 this bad boy had some unexpected, but understandable maintenance issues. The original engine took a dive quickly into self destruction, requiring Nick and his pals to find a "donor" truck to utilize and swap the engine to bring life back to Thomas. He's been beefed up with a 2004 Chevy 6.0 fuel injected motor and is all set up for 4x4 off-roading, just needs the perfect front axle piece. Upgraded with a roof top dance floor a.k.a. the party platform, tinted windows, and air bags in the rear, the next task is to get the suspension on point as this ride is bumpy! Thomas has traveled to California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon.

 

Currently in: Baja, California.

Nick Cahill

is an outdoor adventure videographer and photographer who's Milky Way image graced the cover of National Geographic’s special edition, “Guide to the Night Sky.” Yes, you read that correct, the cover of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC! He has the skills, a keen eye, and patience for capturing breathtaking moments and solely prints his images on dye-infused aluminum which brings vibrancy and life to any interior space. His freelance work allows him to combine his passion for the outdoors with his magic behind the lens. He is an adrenaline seeker at heart and spends his free time jumping out of airplanes (his count is past 150 now!), riding mountain bikes, snowboarding in the back country, surfing, paddle boarding, and mountaineering. His day job is quite impressive as he is the Media Director for one of the largest military news and men's entertainment website, Hurricane Group. He recently released his first documentary, Big Mountain Heroes, and has found a new enthusiasm for wanting to share other folk's journeys on film. His career gives him the flexibility to travel full time in the bus and fly to shoot locations. Want to help support and fund gas towards the adventure?

Jessica Perez

enjoys yoga, hiking, paddle boarding, trail running, pole fitness, hoop dancing, and flexibility training. With Nick she climbed her first fourteener, Mt. Shasta, and fell in love with the adrenaline and challenges of mountaineering. Traveling in the bus has reignited her flame for videography and she's been crafting her skills with Nick's guidance. She achieved her first photography milestone with her images published in Foster Huntington's latest #1 best selling book, "Van Life." Jessica had worked as a consultant in Silicon Valley and her client portfolio includes some of the most popular tech companies, products and websites. Instead of being in front of the client, Jessica thrives behind the scenes helping curate and develop presentations and reports for the consulting team to deliver. Desiring freedom away from the desk, she left her full time job in Lake Tahoe and took a leap of faith. With her career background, business savvy mindset, and an eye for detail, she is now running her own business taking on clients as a virtual administrative assistant. As long as there's good internet signal, Jessica is able to run her remote office. Living on the road requires her to wear multiple hats to earn creative income, in addition to her day job, she also helps connect Nick with art galleries, writes articles, assists small businesses with their marketing plans, builds websites (like this one), and all Blue Bus Adventure business is also managed by her - so if you're interested in working with us, she'd be more than happy to speak with you and collaborate on a fun project... or two... or three.
