Daydreaming about Buses and the Skoolie Life
When first married my wife and I would take off in our van with a dog or 2, no real plans, and embrace our wanderlust - almost always with great results and some of the most memorable experiences of our lives.
After years of professional work, paying off school loans, and raising a few kids we're getting restless again and looking to simplify. Given my background as a mechanic, outdoor guide, environmental and transportation engineer, home remodeler, and green energy guy I find myself thinking often about building a Skoolie and hitting the road - again with my wife and some dogs.
We're looking for our bus. As of now we're thinking Thomas or BB pusher about 30 -35 ft. A major part of our plans include using solar PV on the bus to provide some power to our house. Because of conservation upgrades we don't use much so the bus may provide all power when parked in our back yard.
As of now I'm on the web looking at buses and the wife is on Youtube watching skoolie videos - a typical weekend night.
I hope to update my profile soon with specs for our bus.
I'm already amazed at the depth of knowledge I'm finding on this forum and spend a lot of time reading here. Any advice would be much appreciated.
