I own a skoolie to go get groceries, and go to starbucks, and the mall, and pizza, and take my friends to dinner, and roadtrip, and go to the office...

I went shopping for my first RV in 1993 and wound up buying an Eagle 10 bus and converting it.

Spent 6+ years living in it and traveling.

Always wanted to convert another one. Took me 20+ years to get around to it.

"Bus Life" is what I'm talking about. My problem is i can't get anything done. As soon as i think i know what i want to do i come up with a different idea. Maybe i do want to add a shower. Should i put a black water tank. Maybe a new rear end. Haha it never ends. I'm obsessed to say the least.

I paid $46k for my block 3/1 home on .3 acre lot in Eustis during the housing "crisis" or whatever. Put $30k into it, lived in it for most of a decade now. Its currently worth about $140k. We've decided its time to get out.
We're selling it by the end of the year and moving out of town in our bus. Finished or not, we're ready.
I want ten acres out in BFE so I can pile up buses, mopeds, and burn tires when I want to!

ECCB we talk the same language. Thats the life, especially if its in an area where you can grow any plants you want. If you catch my drift. Anyway, do you guys do any meet up kind of things? I'd sure love to get together with other like minded people

All the time!
I've made several local friends through this forum.
We're having a skoolie bbq and party for Sandi. She's taking off on the road in her bus she's finishing up. Last weekend in Sept!
Of course, any time you'd like to come out on a weekend let me know and I'll pm you my number and stuff.
