Skoolie, Jed Clampett Style



Yes, someone actually hacked this poor bus and turned it into Jed Clampett's country home.

I love the fact that these rigs are insured and out driving. Fantastic!

Chances of that thing being insured are somewhere between Slim and none - and Slim got up and left. I saw the driver; he looked like a mountain man who came down to the genrul store to get some more beans and salt pork.

And here we are on Skoolie getting into arguments about the structural valididty of perforated thin gauge steel.
This guy and all the crazy bus conversions of the 60's and 70's are a testament to just how bad ass all our buses are on here!

The thing I like best about Skoolies is the absolute freedom it gives people to convert a large vehicle into something that suits their individual purposes, whether they live in the bush or love RV parks. That's why they are better than anything else, because each Skoolie is as unique as the owner.

I found out today one of the many reasons I can't find a place to park here in town. Seems that Jed Clampett is into the manufacturing and distribution of home made pharmaceuticals.

As a result, this morning, I was chased out of one of the truck stops. I'm getting tired of having to move frequently!

Par for the course, my friend.
