I am Andre, 41yo, right now living in Hamburg/Germany (yet), married to the best wife in the world and father of two wonderful kids.
A German album promotion / Instagram whatever / hippsteresque IKEA ad cloaked into a wannabe travel documentation on Netflix called "Pursuit Of Happiness" brought my attention to the whole skoolie thing and I love it! Well, the skoolie thing of course.
Right now I have my own business in the German performance and motorsports industry. But my wife and I are already developing a location independent business and already downsized our lifestyle. We sold our house and rented an appartment of a little more than 900 sq ft. My - from a German point of view - huge Ram 3500 with 5.9 24V Cummins and long bed has been replaced by a small VW Golf with 1.4l engine and 75hp.
Coming from the digital nomads field we all of a sudden fell in love with the skoolie idea!
Our plan is to buy and convert a school bus as a full time home and to travel the US then Canada including Alaska and aaaaall the way down to southern Chile.
I am glad to have found this awesome forum and I already LOVE the whole skoolie scene and its nice and laid back members!
Cheers from ze German across the pond!
