Even if I never make it to Burning Man or anything, my schoolie has more than paid for itself in terms of "That just happened!" moments!
Totally understood.

I third the motion; i too have lived a pretty unconventional life and now am moving into a skoolie. Funny how right it feels. Before the bus i got a calling to start looking for a home. I checked a few houses, all seemed cool enough but sorts made my spirit sad. Figured it was just life, then after some Universe guidance i found something that makes my spirit happy.

And yeah... door interlock. lol

Mine started the shifter problem the first time I took it for inspection?
It was starting to act funny when I started up to go and I wiggled a little and off we went but the mechanic wanted to start it for whatever reason.
For the Jolly Roger I just have to find the sweet spot in the neutral position.
Key twisted to crank and wiggle the shifter to find the neutral sweet spot for me.
