Hi all. I am freebyrd and live in new Boston nh. Our skoolie is a 1998 35 passenger bus with a 366. We hit the local festivals, races, and camp in it (going on 3rd year). Just purchased another as well. It is a 1998 international with blue bird body 35 passenger with a dt 466e. It has a fairly new tranny in it; the at 545. More a project at this point. I did put a wood stove in it to make progress in during colder months. I would like to be added to the growing list. Happy new year.

I made a list of all members who had a location listed and made a map. I did weed out all who have less than two posts and who haven't posted in the last year.
I would like to hear yea or nae. If you are on the map and don't want to be or aren't on it and want to be let me know. The map markers are at the town listed in the member list. As of right now the ONLY way to get to it is by using this address, it isn't linked from anywhere, not even on my web site.

Skoolie Map

If there is enough interest I'll keep it up and add to it

This is amazing!!! We just joined, so we're not on the map. We're currently traveling, but would love to be added. Maybe there could be an option to tell people if you're home or on the road. We would be more than happy to welcome fellow skoolies to stay at our place! We live on 10 acres of water front within walking distance of a fun hop in' little bar community, so it's ideal for weary travelers!!

Addition to the map is by request only, I'll consider this your request.

This is beyond the scope of my poor overworked brain, I don't think you really want to tell people you aren't home anyway. That's kind of like going on facebook and telling everyone you're at a bar. Attention thief, I'm not home and might be drunk when I get there.
Trying to learn how to write python code right now anyway.

Not tryin' to create more work for ya, not even sure if it's possible. What IF the buses that were on top of each other [lots in the same area] had their own colour, the colour of their bus or future colour? ....mine's green.


...someone else had to be thinkin' of this, right?

I hit the wrong button and the whole site disappeared. It's a new feature in google maps and was supposed to be quite easy.

Any way it's there again and everyone is one it. I'll just have to make it prettier later. Old link is no good. Try this one to see if it works.

You can zoom in to get the markers farther apart. Remember location is only approximate. If there are 5 of you in one city I just moved the markers so they wouldn't be on top of each other. I have no idea where you are in that city, nor do I want to.

Someone let me know if that link isn't right

New link

This link should take you to the map.
I'll fix the original link.
