Starting my Journey

Hi everyone!

Iím so excited to be apart of this community. Iíve been reading thru posts and learning so much from everyone. Itís really inspired and has given me confidence that Iím not crazy for wanting to live this type of life style

Iím currently living in San Diego, CA and am planing on building my Skoolie and selling my house by next June. Alittle bit of a tight time frame, I know, but I work best when challenged ;)

I canít wait to post pictures and get everyoneís input on my build

Any recommendations on a good bus please let me know, Iím finally ready to buy my bus!!

More to come

First and MOST IMPORTANTLY! Do you have a place to park and work on your bus? If you have a spot all lined up go for it. Otherwise, don't budge!

That being said, welcome, and be sure to post pics since most of us can't read.

Awesome that you have parking. ALWAYS have a backup plan and a backup to that plan!
Parking is why we've finally settled on a 6 window size. We can fit it in our driveway and the city can't mess with us!
