oh hiiiiiiii

hello all! hope everyone is keeping safe these days.

My name is Matt and i'm super excited to learn about the Skoolie world

A little about me...
Let's see, like some of you i'm definitely a big dreamer! I'm always envisioning some pursuit or idea and tend to have a burning desire to compulsively chase such things However i've basically been on a ball and chain undergoing my medical training... BUT im about to break FREE

I'm 30 years old living in Canada. I'm currently renting a house while doing my anesthesia residency. I'll be done in 5 months time at which point I will be moving to wherever I land a job. This time of transition means a world of possibility and the perfect time to at least explore what a life in a skoolie can look like for my girlfriend and I. I am excited to learn as much as I can from all of you, particularly about the building process. Look forward to chatting with ya'll!!

Not sure what bus yet UFOpilot, still learning about the differences. In terms of size probably a full sized bus.
