It all started as a joke.
"Let's go to Alaska in a school bus"
Be careful what you joke about.

Got my half finished car hauler bus for free from a friend when he moved and his wife wouldn't let him take it into their new neighborhood. Plus he bought an enclosed trailer for his race car.

We did a bus because where we want to go with it is off grid. Regular campers can't go where we are going they are made for a weekend at the campground with a plug and water. We are going 20 miles down a rough dirt road with no amenities and stay there for 2-3 months at a time. We have 3 solar panels, 4 batteries, 180 gallons of water, composting toilet, solar frig and freezer (that does not have to be level to work) comfortable memory foam mattresses. A shower a sink and a stove. A WiFi enhancer for the laptop (maybe we will get internet)

I work lots of random contract work all over Canada and it makes no sense moving into places for short month to month stays. Plus, I LOVE travelling, the open road and being able to visit my friends while bringing my house with me.

- School busses are way better to tackle rough logging roads
- Always wanted to build a cabin, took some ideas and made it mobile
- Genuinely enjoy small space living and not being connected to a grid

Bus life!

Where I live that is either a bad marriage you are happy to forget or a life effected by chemicals.

All of the above. Escaping the corporate life and the rate race in Cali, getting off grid, better environment for kids, love building things, want less stuff, ability to travle, safer and more ruged for rough roads
