My intention was and is not to make this a dating site. My vision is simply to bring single people together that love to travel but perhaps not wanting to explore alone. Wandering individuals is a site for RVs people to socialize and travel to locations and have a common denominator i.e.; their RVs. Skoolie people are of a different mindset, marching to a different drummer and can share information to our unique mode of transportation. Not everyone is tied to another and we would benefit on many levels to have a community of others especially women that would enjoy the company of single Skoolies. I would love to drive both sides of Baja, but as a single woman I m not inclined to do this all alone. I first tried starting a new group on this site but when I sent it it disappeared into the Netherlands. I feel we all agree this forum is not appropriate and it appears others are thinking of ways to separate single Skoolies into a better forum. If you have any ideas please offer your thoughts. The "meat-market mentality" is not the intention.

im a 2016 kinda guy... so im on facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat, tumblr, etc..

I love social media... I love posting my adventures, travel,s, etc with my school busses..

I plan to stay single forever... the allure to me of a singles forum would not be to try and meet the man of my dreams but to simply be around people where im not a 3rd wheel, and share something in common... so many times in my other interests i go out with a couple only to be a 3rd wheel while they romance and im kinda like.. just there.. awkward..

if everyone is single theres not that 3rd wheel feeling.. I love the idea though of actual gatherings... unfortunately as much as i love to entertain, i dont have the facilities to park a bunch of busses at either of my residences... in florida i live in a city Flat.. right downtown.. and in ohio im in a newer suburban subdivision where there isnt enough room between driveways in many places to park long busses.. otherwise I would Love to host get togethers... BBQ's pizza outings, pot-lucks, etc.. I dig...

Christopher...thank you. You get it. I own a ranch that right now is home to two Skoolies waiting to be transformed. I can accommodate many more. But aside from hosting Skoolies on anyone private property I would like to meet other Skoolies at various destinations, National Parks, caravan to places that safety is in numbers. We are only limited by our imaginations. Boondocking a flock of Skoolies could be a hoot.
Oh! Here's an idea...we could be in the Doo-Dah parade, singles and couples! That would be right up a Skoolies alley! If you are not familiar with the Doo Dah parade in Pasadena, California.....doo google it.

we have a Doo-Dah parade in columbus Ohio too... and its every bit of pasadena if not more... its a BLAST!!!!

one thing to remember is not all of us skoolies are campers... my busses are still pretty much busses.. i dont have toilets and stoves and such... and I dont tent-camp.. so any get together that involves overnighting for me to attend there needs to be a place where i can rent a hotel room not far away.. . im very muych an On-The-Grid kind of guy... I need to be able to work wherever i go.. which means having cell service...

I ll build a guest bunk for you. Hotel? Eeeuuuuwww.
You appear to me to be the camp director, social butterfly, queen bee. A pun? I ll own it, I love puns.

Years ago when I was doing cross country racing on horses I wanted to get a group of female riders to participate in the Doo Dah parade. Our theme was to be...HAGS ON NAGS. Nobody else had a sense of weirdness. 8-(

I have a few minutes so I'm working on this.... found a free hosting site with (supposedly) unlimited storage and traffic, so am uploading phpBB to it so I can see about getting something together... if it flies I'll register the domain and see if it takes off.

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.

Ok, I just found where I very first started Single Skoolies. If you click on COMMUNITIES on the home page menu bar you will find single Skoolies. Perhaps we can use this link for future threads?
I posted a photo of one of the busses but it posted upside down. I have not a clue how to fix this, no menu saying edit photos. Any suggestions?

Yea it seems to be, so far.....

It's taking a little tweaking to get it set up but it's getting there.
