Cool Greetings from DreamWeaverBus!


Hello! My username is the name I'm thinking of giving my bus! I don't have one yet though. I have some funding to do, and I am working on that, not to mention some debting to finish off. So I'm a ways away from my skoolie dream. But maybe not as far as one might think, hopefully.

Meanwhile I am researching all aspects I can think of on what bus to buy, how to convert a school bus, what kind of floorplan I want to do or CAN do, what kind of budget I want, how long I want that budget to go on (because I can't buy everything I need at once), how to install an electrical and water system, how to insulate and do the interior, power and wattage needs, heating and cooling, how to have internet connection and wifi hotspot, how to work on the road, how to downsize, zoning and legal issues, even security systems & pets.

This forum struck me as a valuable resource as well as a community that I am literally planning to become a part of, but have not yet the means. So I hope I can stick around here and learn, and eventually share all my knowledge back.

I'll beef up my profile soon!

Heh, Yall caught me, that's what the bus is named after! (or will be when I find it, buy it, convert it, and officially name it!) One of my absolute favorite songs since I was little, I always imagined a train flying through space and deep dark woods... And so my bus shall one day be!

Thank you for the welcomes!!
