Then you'll like this. I did this mosaic in my senior year of HS, it was what got me a passing grade. Probably worth some money as popular as Spiderman is now. Just sorry I never got to get Stan Lee to autograph it.

Talking Thanks and I'm new Here

Thanks for the rules and the required respect for the community. I will comply. My wife and I are in the market for a big skoolile. We just arrived from 7 years in the UK and we're looking to skool-up for travels around the USA for a couple years. Any suggestions are welcome.

I look forward to talking with you all.

Cheers,
Michael

Hello from New Orleans, LA

Just a quick hello to get out of lurker status, lol! I've been reading threads here for a few months now and can't say a big enough "thank you" to this community for what I've learned so far!

My husband and I are READY to buy a bus, but we're holding out for a good engine/transmission combo, among other details, because our bus will be our full-time home. We're big DIYers and can't wait to get started!

Hello to ALL. new register here. NO Bus No Clue NO Idea, yet. Had a crazy idea to convert a shuttle bus and use as a camper for travels loaded with ebikes and go go go. Did some searches for buses and POW!!! whole world of skoolies(didnt even know its was a word) and buses including the infamous FURTHER and ALL you wonderful people come pouring out of the 15" PC screen at work (how else you expect me to make it thru this life sucking.....). I poke around the skoolie forum and cant see any pics till i register......so........HELLO!!!!!! wonderful to meet you all, i hope its warm and pleasant where you are. my name is grez, Im here to leach great ideas and exploit endless conversations with newbies, like myself (asking which is the best bus, best engine, best toilet, best axle grease, best place to park and blah blah blah) all in the effort bypass the crap and get to the good stuff as fast as possible (grin). im in the LA area, originally from NYC, career aviation tech, but been working maintenance practically since 17yo after joining army. I look forward to contributing and drawing from this forum, cheers........TIA

New to Skoolie

Hello all. I have been with my wife converting our 40FT 2000 Thomas MVP-EF (AKA-Lucille) since January 2019. We have almost completed, minus some plumbing and tiny kitchen details. If anyone has any knowledge about the KIB K28 Monitor Panel i.e., instructions tht would be greatly appreciated. We plan to permanently hit the road summer of 2021.http://instagram.com/just_call_her_lucille

need a place to work on and store my bus!!

Hi! My name is Mike. I am just getting started on my conversion and have found myself without a place to work in my bus. I have it gutted, next is handling rust and some working and plumbing before I get it ready to insulate it.
I am currently in Boise and need to go to North Idaho to pick some thing up before I can get to work on it. I can travel to anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or even the west for that matter.



Thanks and I hope to hear from you

Hello New member here

I am so excited to find this site at the beginning of my bus conversion journey and am so happy that drama won't be tolerated. Our new baby is a 96 prison bus we are converting ourselves. I look forward to making new friends and seeing new places while always learning something new. Thank you for this wonderful community.
