Skoolie Encounters in the Wild

Didn't see a topic for this sort of thing, so I figured I'd start one!


Trekked down the driveway Tuesday morning to finish excavating my car from where I'd had to leave it when I finally escaped Roanoke, and went to pick up the roommate at the airport. We spent the day in town and had an encounter in the Walmart parking lot on the way home...

...now I should preface this by saying a year ago, I wouldn't have blinked twice. This time, after parking the car, I meandered on down to take a look at the bus we'd passed while she dug around in her luggage for something.

Big white Genesis, tinted windows, front engine. Cali plates. I think I spooked whoever was in it - didn't realize at first it had an occupant, lol. Very minimal on the inside, though I did make out a bunk bed, I think. Maybe someone bringing their soon to be skoolie home?
Who knows? Either way, a pretty cool chance encounter. Sorry for scaring you, strangers
