Wink Pre-Skoolie

Hey everyone!

I am Chase, my wife Kayla and I are looking forward to joining the skoolie life. We are in the very early stages (we are paying off debt and saving up) and looking to gather as much useful info as possible.

I am looking into what to check for when buying a bus, how to do things for cheap ie. upgrades, lifting the ceiling, etc. Until I get a bus and start the build.

We are a ways off from acquiring a bus I just cant wait to get in and start building, I like to have a plan and as much research/info as possible.

I am ready to leave the drab, the stress and the rat race behind in exchange for freedom, adventure, and the open road!
