Amen to that! We have been living and working at Glacier for the past 4 summers, and I still get goose bumps every time I drive the Going to The Sun Road. It is amazing! Just wish I could drive it in the skoolie (21-foot length restriction and 10-foot height restriction)

I met this guy in Pagosa Springs, and we talked about his first 3 buses - 50's Flexibles, he also had this 40 footer bus for sale - his fourth. Surprisingly he is NOT a member here?

very interesting guy too, wish I could have spent more time with him. I guess most schoolie-folk are interesting tho? Need to make more effort showing off the folks I meet in/around buses.

the common theme I have found with most people into Busses, whether homes, campers, party mobiles, etc is that they dont feel the need to "fit a crowd", dont succomb to societal peer pressure, and in general have life stories to tell.. well beyond what happens with or while in their bus...

People who LIVE life rather than EXIST in Life..

we have everything from people wishing to go off-the-grid to people who are city dwellers to people who just wanted something different, to those starting businesses.. all walks of life, demographics,races, sexes, and sexual orientation.. in effect extemely diverse yet with a common thread..

yeah! thats why I like it

I would have to agree, with my short time talking to skoolies, my shock is that this forum only represents a very small group of all skoolies out there?
