Just getting started!

Hello!! We are Susan (Mom) Ira (11) and Isaac (4)! We (I) decided this stick built house living isn't for us. We need something small and mobile. So we boutgh a bus!! We named her Esther. She's a 1997 International that retired from driving a school route last year. I know the previous owner, in fact I rode his bus as a child. He had a Ford when I rode it. So Esther is in excellent condition and has gotten lots of love from the kids throughout the years. So far we have 5 seats out. They are beasts!!! And I can't get them out alone so scheduling someone to help me has proven difficult. Plus these rusty bolts are stubborn. I have a spot on Facebook called Estherbus8 if you wanna follow along!

Welcome Susan, Ira and Isaac,

Congratulations on your bus. You have come to the right place for Skoolie info. There is a wealth of knowledge to be found here and a great bunch of folks ready to assist.

Where are you located?

We are looking forward to pictures.

Good luck on your pursuit.
