Hello from Utah

Hey all, a bit new to this skoolie thing but have seen some pretty amazing conversions. Hope to some day have one of my own. Hope to be fully aware of the process when I finally do get a bus.

You live in a good area for buses! Usually there's some pretty nice Utah buses on GovDeals and Public Surplus that go for good prices.

My '46 came from Utah and had spent it's whole life there. Very little rust other than some factory screwups in design and building.

Hello T1Teeples! My wife and I are finishing up our skoolie. We just drove it from Dallas to Salt Lake City. I got a lot of great help from this forum, so you are in the right place

Hi. Im in Utah too. A tiny town right in the Middle! Get a bus, we can start a gang, or maybe have a salute to each other while passing; similar to the tarded- jeepwave!
