spent a few days hanging out in Houston, with Tango - what a great host. Learned more about the city in 2 days than I learned the 2 years I lived in Texas. Was treated to a few marvels, and a new perspective. Also got to meet M1031A1, and see his rig, and I thought mine was big? Can't wait to come back this way.

Nice bus...but who is that old man!?

Really enjoyed meeting you Dred and you are welcome to hang here anytime bud. Free water & electric with no fees. Likewise any other traveling Skoolies. We gotta' stick together and look out for each other..

We few, we band of brothers. For any man who has gone down as stupid a path as I, is indeed my brother.

Well said Tango. People that spend the time and effort to do the difficult job of transforming a discarded vehicle into something new and useful need to stick together.

Dred,

Thanks for opening up your skoolie. Took away some new inspiration for my build. Trust me when I tell y'all right now Heavy is like driving a 55 gallon drum empty while chipmunks scamper over it and throw acorns at it... VERY echoie inside. Still can't get over how quiet your bus is just 250 feet or so from an area where three major interstates convene in Houston.......

Keep livin' the dream!

M

Ya know, I understand that we have some small get-togethers occasionally in this community, but I would like to suggest we have some REAL, mega-meetings, where we can spend a week or two, hanging with like minded folks, and learning the massive amount of stuff we can share in a few hours VS. years spent typing. I was truly inspired by the RTR a few weeks back - it was REALLY well done, and the only expense was fuel to get there. I think if we can arrange a region - one that a majority of folks can agree on, we can also put something interesting together.

Maybe I should create a new thread for this?

Check this video below for a taste

Outstanding vid...thank you Dred! And I totally agree we should begin planning some similar location/getaways/hideouts just for us Skoolies. To Hell with the fancy, schmancy, "we don't want skoolies here" RV resorts. We don't need'em if we start our own circuit and ban all the storebought rigs.

Could be fun.

Dred,

I agree. Problem for me is my build isn't "finished" to the point of being road ready for such an adventure. Looking at small scale solar and wind electricity to supplement a diesel genset isn't cheap (especially when you have zero dollars to spend). I have so many ideas floating around in my head sometimes even writing them down is an effort in futility. But I enjoy learning what others are doing/have learned from their experiences. I'm all open to the idea of all of us getting together somewhere and sharing what we've learned!

Anyone care to take the ball and run with it?
