I'm new, i don't know what to do

Hello everyone. I havent bought a bus to convert yet. I am working hard to become debt free right now and i feel like the skoolie lifestyle will be well suited to who i am. I have been a ford diesel mechanic for over 10 years. I have some carpentry, plumbing and welding skills. I know i have alot to learn and i look forward learning everything i can from this community. Thanks

I am in the same boat as you at this time & look forward to seeing what you come up with. I tend to proceed very slowly so it may be a while before I get started, but get there I will.

Take care and keep posting.

Yup. Especially if you've got diesel mechanics experience and are adept at construction and welding. I'd argue that you're a step or 2 ahead of many of us!
