Full-time wanderers living our dream!

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hi! We are Cat and Aaron, and we converted our bus, Stu, into an RV and have been on the road since April of 2018. We love rock climbing, paddleboarding, and generally adventuring. To support ourselves on the road, we both work mainly as freelancers - Aaron does graphic design, animation, and video editing and Cat does writing, editing, and some marketing. We are totally self-contained in our bus, and are happy to camp quietly or spend an evening trading travel stories, completely up to you!

Skills & Expertise to Share

We both play drums, so we love to have jam sessions with other musicians! We're also happy to help with anything around the house, or compare notes on bus conversions/van builds.

stu.the.bus's Pets

No pets currently, but we love animals.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

One of our all-time favorite places to camp is Remington Hot Springs in California :)

stu.the.bus's Hometown

We are both from Seattle, WA, although we currently travel full-time!

Nice Couple

Unfortunately it was one of the hottest weeks of the summer when StuTheBus was here, and nobody wanted to spend time outside visiting. We did get to chat with them a few times. Would welcome them back anytime.

Awesome Skoolie

Great guests!

We enjoyed having "stu's" drivers/occupants stay with us. They're a fun, polite couple and great to spend time with. It was a kick to have them take part in our Fourth of July celebrations. We hope to meet up with them again, either here or somewhere on the road.

My New Favorite Folks!

I could not be more pleased that my first and also random referral to Boondockers Welcome turned out to be my favorite guests ever! It may be early for that contest but these folks are gold!! I believe I have made some genuine friends for life. They are just wonderful people and we have had so many amazing chats during their stay! They were awesome at communicating before and during their stay, just as great at maneuvering their bus to and inside my property, plus they were even kind enough to lend me their hands and skills to a building project I needed help with. I just can't say enough nice things about this couple! I hope their adventure brings them back this direction so they can stay at my place again :) They are welcome ANY time and I highly recommend them to other BDW hosts!
