Red face Heya Y'all!

Hiya Y'all!

My friend Laura and myself (Courtney) are about to start a gofundme campaign so that we may have a Skoolie of our own. As you may have noticed by my name of TinyBipolarBus that is going to be the name of our Skoolie because her and I are both disabled due to our various mental health ailments, the main ones being Bipolar & PTSD. We decided to do a skoolie because apartments are expensive and with my lack of income (still trying to win my disability case) and her minimal income less than $800 a month there is no way we could really afford an apartment in our area. For many people like us we will never have a home of our own, and many of us wind up homeless (I was at one point) or in section 8 housing which is not much better than being homeless. Doing this made the most sense for both of us.

I will also be going to school for Organic Gardening in the fall here at Delaware Valley Institute in Bucks County PA, and having a skoolie will allow me to attend school. We don't have a truck to haul a tiny house on a trailer, plus we love the idea of an old bus as our house. The other reason we are doing this is because we plan on moving to Georgia as soon as I am done school and with the TinyBipolarBus we will not have to worry about finding a house right away.

I came to this site because I want to learn all that I can learn before we take on this new adventure. I want to connect with members of the community, I want to get advice, share stories, and all that fun stuff. I love knowledge and I love challenges and this is a bit of both. Can't wait to start meeting, talking to, and swapping tips and trick with y'all!

Best of luck in your gofundme. We tried raising a measly $300 when I was unemployed to help with some stray kittens' vet bills and rehoming. We got zilch.
I donated to a gofundme campaign in december, and somehow in doing that my credit info was compromised and attempts were made to make fraudulent purchases in Chicago. Thank goodness my bank caught it. I'm all done with any of that.
Who knows, maybe you have better luck with it than I have.

If you don't get the free money, a decent bus can be had for less than a couple grand.
