"Everyone?" Actually, I didn't write I am "moving" any where. I "accepted a job offer in California." Without generalizing too much, some people are leaving California due to housing crisis, high cost of living, permits and fees to breathe California air. I just so happen to be a nomad dude.

Now, is there something you can write that is helpful for selling my skoolie? Do you know someone in the Bay area, who is not leaving, that has a spot to park my bus for my 12-18 month assignment? Do you know someone who is looking for a bus? Can you tell me something about my post that could be helpful? I need to be at that awesome job in California by Easter.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Ronnie,

I have decided to keep my bus! I went to visit her today and fell in love all over again. I am going to leave her on the farm in PA. When my assignment is over I will return to finish her conversion.

Thanks all!

Thank you so much for this message! I decided to get a camper van. There are vanlifers in California who have offered to help me find parking. I also found a farm that will let me park in their lot until I get settled. The rents are over $2k a month because I have a dog. I want to save to buy a piece of land and finish my bus. I don’t want to pay that.
