Full Install Directions

1. Install VirtualBox: 
    (For mac: OSX Hosts > amd64)
    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads 
2. Install Vagrant: 
    https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html
3. Install VVV: 
    https://github.com/Varying-Vagrant-Vagrants/VVV#the-first-vagrant-up

(Follow the instructions for "The First Vagrant Up" - 
Also install the additional plugins hostupdater, and triggers)
I recommend installing VVV into a catch-all folder. All of 
your local sites generated with VV will be in this folder 
so name it something generic (mine is cayenne-base).

I also recommend installing it into the ~/Sites directory like so:
cd ~;
mkdir Sites;
cd Sites;
mkdir base-site; #Rename this to whatever you like, we use cayenne-base

Your final path should be:
~/Sites/base-site

4. Once the VVV installation is complete 
then you can install VV. An easy install of VV uses homebrew. 
You'll need to install homebrew if you don't already have it.
http://brew.sh/

5. Then install vv: https://github.com/bradp/vv
