New dreamer here!

Hello, just stopping by to say hello. I'm new to the skoolie craze and I'm here to get a little inspiration and knowledge. I'm 38 from Iowa and I'm about to dive into life changing plans. My girlfriend and I and the pets are going to hit the road next spring and travel, work, build memories and see everything that America has to offer.

I've worked in the manufacturing field for 13 years and to put it quite simply I've had enough. My girlfriend is about to finish her bachalors and will be onto her graduate program online.

I guess you can say this is my first putting it all out there to the world post about our plans. If anyone has any encouraging words and or advice please chime in.

Thanks ya'll!

maybe keep the sucky job until the bus is done....seems these things always take longer and cost more than we originally planned for...other than that...good luck!

what do you plan to do for $$ and work?

busses cost real money to operate and maintain.
will your work plans work in a Post CoVID-19 world? (recession)

Do you have a bus yet? What is your budget? You know what "they" say. I have no time because I'm working to make all this money, now I I have all this time & no money. There is definitely a balance. Good luck on your endeavors
