"Skoolie" Introduction.

Hi all. New guy here. I am from Hillsboro Oregon. I am not a skoolie bus owner,(an HDT owner) but enjoy the creativity and originality of so much of the skoolie community. I hope that I can offer some help as time goes on, and that you wont mind me using some of the incredible knowledge from this site.

Thanks. Deezl. (Don)

Always room for one more.

Re: "Skoolie" Introduction.

Welcome!

Not all of us own buses, but may have helpful information or experiences to share.
There are owners, past owners, future owners, and non-owners here. I was encouraged to sign up because of a post, I think by Elliot Naes, that encouraged lurkers to join in the fray. I was probably closer to buying a bus then compared to now. Now I am thinking more towards securing a smaller home for retirement in a few years.

For example, the legendary "Smitty" posted endlessly for a year or two about bus ideas (and politics), and more than a few thought he was an internet troll. Then four and a half years ago:

You can still see the responses, and for a while you could go see the summary he posted as "Neon Moon" at Escapees, but it looks like they deleted all older threads.

That was just one example of one future owner who had something to say.

Re: "Skoolie" Introduction.

The knowledge range from basic improvision (my favorite) to full on detailed luxury, is amazing here. There's so much creativity used to put together a bus conversion. I looked over several buses hoping to find one with enough head room, but ended up, at least for now, with a truck.

Welcome to the jungle. We're not that different. You have a HDT and most of us have a MDT.
