Florida Meetup!!??

Well it seems that there are quite a few of us FL folks on here these days. Onenationundergoat is in the area and I'm thinking we should try to have a get-together of sorts. Just some food and some beers with a nice bonfire?
My bus is out in the country on the northeast side of Apopka on the Lake/Orange county line.
I'm thinking sooner than later, like the next couple weeks. Possibly a fiday or saturday evening or an all weekend campout...
Let me know what yall think.

If your bus can be ready, why not invite us all over for a roof-raising party? Sort of like the Amish barn raising parties.

Either way, let us know. I'll bring a case of beer, plus something for everyone else to drink

Well the first annual Florida Skoolie meetup was a success, I believe. Four extant bus owners were present, and one future bus owner, plus friends. The chili was excellent. He hung out on the neighbor's porch and Charlie's bus and discussed future plans, techniques, and possibilities. We wound up inside when the cold weather got the best of us.

Thank you Charlie for putting it all together.

I have three more packs of kangaroo meat in the fridge, any weekend you want to come out I'll make us up some chili.

Yeah, everyone seemed to be pretty cool, for sure. Nice folks.

I'm in Orlando and a future skoolie owner. I'd love to be part of any future meetups or even help with labor getting a bus ready for the experience.
