hi my name is josh and i recently bought a 1984 gmc 72 passenger skoolie.
like most of yall i have hopes of converting my bus to travel in but i also need the bus
you see im a proud texan and down here football is everything and my highschool team isnt very good so im trying to get this bus ready for next season to tail gate in so that mabey our team can get more support.
i also have a local church that wants to use my bus for missionary work.
all of this makes me want to get this bus up and running really bad but im only 15 and even with my job im having trouble paying for this experience.
i know you all have busses yourself and are spending money on that but im asking if yall could help my dream come true. i have put togather a website on my website i have my story and a plead for donations.
even just a doller would be greatly appreciated.

this is really becoming an addiction ,

Hi Josh!

I remember you, I checked out your website before. What have you done on your bus since you got it?

You might run into problems with insurance using your bus for church ministry work. If they're used to haul people then it's a bus, not an RV, and might need to be insured as such.

Pack up your bus and bug out to the hills!

If you think you have problems with money now wait until you go to college.

The absolute key is networking. The more people you know the more cool stuff you can get at free or reduced prices. It's a give and take trade sort of a thing.
