Great pics!
I was beginning to think everyone went old school and was waiting for the film to be developed!

Anyone remember those days?!?!?

What a time!!

At our peak we had 21 buses!!! Quite a few of us will be out in the morning. Way better turnout than expected, can't wait for the next one. Lets definitely not wait a full year to get together again. We should keep doing "regional " gatherings, but have a main Skooliepalooza once a year as a central gathering... thoughts?

Hope to see y'all again soon!!!

It would be cool to have a skoolie palooza "circuit". Ideal temperature locations with the seasons of course. A new destination every month, easily reached from one site to the next, etc.

More meets

Like the idea of more meets. We just need some real leadership to organize events. Are you up for it?

Who's got the white bus with dog ear mirrors, roof rack, & solar panels?
I don't recognize that bus from the forum.

I really like that idea, was just saying the same thing. A few throughout the year in convenient spots regionally.

I think that last total was 27 buses. I'm making a spreadsheet with a lot of stats and info I collected from a lot of people who came. I'll make it so people on the forum can add to it. Eventually once we got solid internet! This is about the first time I've had internet and it's slow. There are still four or more buses left at camp!
