I am a civil Engineer, right now working in a bridge project. I wanted to be a pilot and now spend my free time by playing flight simulator games . I love to travel a lot and also a foodie lover.

I’m a wanderer and have been for some time now. I work odd seasonal jobs and go from job to job. I have done everything from landscaping to goat milking. Last summer I went commercial shrimping off the Washington coast it was lucrative so after my winter in sunny Arizona I will do another season on the ocean.

I'll start: I myself am a recent college graduate (how long can I claim being a graduate as my "profession"?) and am temping, as said above, in an office. doing data entry.... ALL DAY. I aspire to do something creative and outdoorsy someday. either that, or marry rich. a girl has got to dream.
Our kids are homeschooled so our bus is as close as our kids ever get to being in a school bus. Just like everything else, you want it done right then you need to do it yourself.

IT Manager,

Taking my job with me by saying this was my plan and my boss begrudgingly said OK.So its now a remote gig. We launch this month.

Currently in closing for my place and have effectively moved into our mostly converted Skoolie. We're heading west, plan on buying a slab of land or home.

The bus is hanging out in the state parks while I finish up my sale and transition work out of state.

Yep..been there done that. I remember cruzing around the country picking up almost anyone hitchhiking. Had some great times and met some great people from all over the world. I remember the closer I would get to a show or festival the fuller my van would be..

There was a darkside, I remember getting pulled over by the police and have a bunch of Deadheads shoving piles of drugs into nooks and crevices of my van(probably 10yrs of prison worth..) lucky the van never got searched. Then I hit a chain of 5-7 bad hitchhikers, crazy, stealing change and food, sketchy people and realized when you are driving a vehicle you are in a very bad self defense position. Now days I do not pick up hitchhikers.

The type of people who will "rent" the couch of a school bus and not the type of people you will make money from.

So typically when people ask us what we do, we tell them I sell dirty socks to pervs on Ebay and Hillary sells photos of her feet to pervs on Ebay. Yesterday may be the first time someone took us seriously, and she got a message from a girl claiming to have beautiful feet and wanting to get started in this lucrative business.

So while I am happy to say that's +1 point for us, maybe it's -1 point for humanity as a whole...

I used to drive full time for a school bus contractor in Wisconsin. Also dabbled a bit in their motorcoach/party bus side of the fleet as well.

Now I work IT at a school district and drive part time at my old company (AM route before work, sports trips at night and on weekends).

I work in the gas and oil industry, primarily helicopter portable seismic drilling. I’ve been all over the country hence the buying a bus soon to live in. Hotels get old, so does packing and unpacking and repacking.

I play music and would like to do that professionally but haven’t jumped in yet in leiu of the money aspect.
