New!

I just purchased and drove my skoolie home to Denver from Florida! This is a first for me so the journey begins...

It drove like a champ. Here are some pictures from our journey. Can't wait to learn everything and get started!!

wow that is beautiful. Holy cow that's quite a trek for a first ride. Nice size too; not too long, not too short. Just right.

Hi , so glad Shorty has a great home and loved by his new owner, but it takes me feel empty inside knowing its out of our life. But nothing last forever.

Nice meeting you two brave ladies taking such a trip in a strange buss, but we knew Shorty would pull through., although we did say a prayer for yall.

I remember the excitement when we first got my bus.

We painted it a couple months ago, a little help from our son. Had it 11 years put two paint jobs on it.

Apparently everyone is moving to CO. Just spoke with a friend who spent the summer there and said it is growing like wildfire.

What made me want to move out there was the pot. And all the "now hiring" signage.

I have lived here my entire life and you can definitely see a major difference in the past 5 years. I am so excited to get out of the crowded city and spend some time camping in my bus!! <3

It is a 1991 Thomas International.
