Despite having the two busses and other assorted junk on 80 acres of farmland, we are VERY careful to be quiet and respectfull. The busses and uhaul are hidden in a depression just taller than them. Our farm trucks all have good quiet mufflers on them and we run the generator at a minimum.

To top it off we are between two fairly junkey farmsteads. I went over to their house once, they must have had 12 cars up on blocks!
So I think that we are fairly safe.

Yep. They're *everywhere*. The schmuck that sent me the anonymous complaint letter clearly hasn't walked down our street, where there's a house full of broken down cars, 2 or three boats, and a pop trailer in an unkempt yard.

Agreed, since I live near Atlantic City IAP, and home of the 177th and CGAS Atlantic City.

But is their home mobile?

When I brought our bus home the wife asked me what are the neighbors going to say, I said when the neighbors pay for our vacation & retirement home then they can have a say until then they can kiss my a$$, & I have to give credit & respect not one has complained & those who have said anything have been supportive & some have come by & said if you ever need a hand just ask.

I live next to a retired couple. He mows his immaculate yard twice per week. They have a pond and "creek" running through their yard. They have a really nice 35' big motor home that they take out often. Our houses sit back off the street about 50' and are about 30' apart with our kitchen windows looking at each other. He has a putting green in his side yard. I backed the bus in my side yard between the two houses.

It is driving him insane that I am not working any faster. Every time I see him he comes up to me and says "You know some people do.....when they build their busses out." or "I was talking to the guys down at coffee and they said there is a "Nut Buster" at Autozone that you need to get to cut the nuts off of the underside of your seats." The first day that I had it, he was lying under it trying to help me unbolt the seats.

When we first moved in, he reinforced the bottom of the chain link fence and fenced in some gaps so our dog would not get out of our yard. That was when I realized: Good neighbors make good fences.

I was talking to some full time nomad friends of mine telling them about the plans and weather or not to go skoolie or motor coach. I forgot what they said to me but it made me think maybe some people hate seeing a skoolie because it reminds them of well, school.

So cyclical, and awesome. That is a story you need to tell more often, not that I know how many times you have told that story but I don't think the world can hear that too much.

They are just sore that you will spend a fraction of what they spent.

I'm thinking about moving to Washington. There's tons of.people living on busses. In the olympia area people seem to be chill about it. Legal grass probably helps

in my neighborhood Im known for my over-the-top christmas Lights.. and also building hotrods.. so when i told them im getting a bus...they said "oh cool lets all go out to eat at a fancy restaraunt in it....

then they asked "are you goingto put Christmas lights on it and a 'Turbo Blower' on the hood?

yeah I think i'll be fine.. though I am renting off-site indoor storage for it..
