Good Morning All,
I have read numerous post regarding hassles that folks have finding a place to park their bus. Stories of fights with local officials, neighbors and law enforcement.
It amazes me how many places can be so extremely restrictive about what kind of (registered & operational) vehicle you are allowed to park in your own driveway.
It occurred to me that new people to the forum may get discouraged by the apparent hassle involved with parking a bus on your own private property. I thought I would share "the other side" as far as local regs and experience parking buses, trucks & RV's in my little part of the world.
I am about an hour from Seattle and live a few miles out of "town" proper. We are on .25-.33 acre lots.
We are able to park pretty much anything we want as long as it does not create a danger to our neighbors. The exception would be "excessive" accumulation of non-operative vehicles. No "junk yards". Even that is not vigorously enforced.
I find the idea that some idiot can tell me that I cannot park my own vehicle in my own driveway offensive .
If I go into town in my 40' Bluebird and park on a public roadway there are some restrictions. The vehicle must be registered and operational. Also, I am limited to 72 hours in one spot.
Have hope !
There are Skoolie tolerant places to be found. Don't read the trials of those who live in oppressive communities and assume that it is that way everywhere.
BTW: There is a creek front lot for sale down the road with water, power & septic installed.
Perhaps oters in "Skoolie friendly" zones will speak up and give us more ideas of where we ARE welcome.
