I would suggest starting a new thread and ask this question there to get your answers.... this thread isn't really the proper place.

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.

So many variables and personal preferences...best guess 500-500,000 bucks...give or take.

Hello everyone. Didn't know anything about Skoolie's or heard anything about them at all until about a week ago. Been researching about tiny home's and shipping container living when I came across the term. Ever since my discovery I'm sold on the idea.

Looking toward doing something like this toward retirement and thought about starting now to enjoy building on it a little at a time. Learned allot since last week and getting lots of ideas off Pinetrest.

Just a little BIO. I'm a 41 year old male who lives in Texas whose married and not quite sure my wife would do the full time living in a Skoolie. Might have break her in slowly. Not really a master builder, plumber, or electrician, but have learned allot from YouTube and other such places.

Looking forward to learning lots from everyone and reading up on posts from the past.

LPD: where in Texas are you? I'm 40 miles south of Houston, and several other members are floating around within just a few miles if you live around here.

Welcome! We all started this journey with little or no experience or skills, but hey...life is for learning.

And I am 40 miles north of you...in Houston...along with a few other skoolie nuts.

Phone Help for a Gnome in Need?

Hellooooo,

My name is Miguel and I am a magical gnome who is in the market for a school bus to convert to a mobile boutique/workshop/living situation. I am interested in a 30-35ft school bus that I can eventually attach a half vehicle to the top for a sleeping area. I am a N00b in this world however, and I am seeking a lovely creature that would be willing to share some info with me about what to expect. I have some simple green thumb kinda questions, I have some more mechanical questions, and I just want someone to geek out with a bit over a bus. I'm having difficulty sort of tracking down the right way to look for this info, so any help would be super useful. I work best in person or on the phone, so if anyone is in Eugene, Or or could give a call to 512.297.3666 I would be really appreciative for the help and can offer money or trade for it.

I'm mainly looking for references to info. If I could find someone that would be willing to be a mentor... amazing... but I really could use some help to help myself kinda thang. Thank you family!!
