Hi! I'm a skoolie wannabe (with plans coming together slowly but surely) who's been lurking for a few weeks. I clicked on my own name to see what my status would be and it said "scared to post" and I thought no way! Are you serious? Nice trick to get us newbies posting.
I love looking at the pics on this site. A real mixture of melancholy and excitement. I lived in a bus in Alaska for a few years back when my kids were young. I have no clue what kind of bus other than it was extra tall - army issue I think...so raising the roof wasn't necessary. It had a loft on the roof for extra room. I suppose if I posted pics, someone would be able to tell me what kind it was? Ran like a champion when we took it down the Alcan Hwy into Northern Canada. Last I saw it was in Southern BC and that was a long time ago.
Well, it's nice to "meet" you all, I hope to be posting about my own bus in the next year or so. I've got a lot of research and stuff to do before I get there. I'm stoked to have found this place so I can get my "homework" done before I bite the bullet.
I'm just a woman without a clue when it comes to the what, when, where and how of building me a skoolie so I hope people don't mind if I have a ton of questions and yes, I'll remember to do a search first so I don't have to hear the collective sighs of the old hats.
Take care all and happy bussing!
