I don't have one. Yet. As I said in the What Do You Do post, I'm living with my soon to be ex-wife. If I can swing the purchase of a bus with my income tax refund, I hope to get one. Then I'll be in school and living in a bus. That would be cool.
Okay, I got the bus. I'm living in it. I'm going to school. It's all cool.

WHERE ARE THE CHIQUITAS?!?!?

Y'all promised me there would be chiquitas! Or maybe that was just the voices in my head...

1. I just turned 24 last Friday.

2. Nothing really inspried me to get a bus, I've just always wanted to live in a bus, ever since I can remember riding the bus to school I would dream about how the lay out would be. During school I would always draw up floor plans and my friends would add wierd stuff to it and tell me how crazy the idea was. I bought my bus in June of 04 when I was 22.

3. I havent really had any adventures in it yet, I would really like to travel in it but as of right now I'm tied down with a job and a house payment ect.. I do like having the bus as a back-up home. I like the thought that no matter what I'll always have a roof over my head. Also I have enough saved up that if I get fired or whatever I can go about a year before I have to worry about finding another job.

4. I dont really have a favorite place to go with the bus yet, hopefully I'll get to take a trip with it when I get my weeks vacation in march 06

5. The only other country I've been too is Canada, but I didnt see any busses there, at least not in Winsor.

I just discovered the "narrow boat" thing online, and oh man, is this ever a parallel to skoolies or what!? It's like a skoolie, with the chance of drowning as Mark Twain might say

I am a ole man, have lived 2 plus times longer than most of you. When I look in the mirror I still see a young man looking back, I have traveled all my life, been as Far East as you can go without calling it west.
I don't swim so I keep my A$$ out of the water.
I am bidding right now on my first shoolie, my wife and I will fix it to our liking, then set out to see America again
Over the road truck driver for almost 40 years. Now it's time to stop and see all those cool places I had to drive by so that you all could have your fun things in life..
So I will see you on the road sometime.
Peace out brothers and sisters as they said in the 60s yes I remember those days..
