What do you call a group of bus dwelling nomadic hippies partying in the desert? They call it Skooliepalooza.
Here’s a list of the top places online to look for a school bus to convert into your own rolling home or your next Airbnb project.

Just 4 months after the “limited airstrike with no boots on the ground” attack on Pearl Harbor over 100,000 people (more than two thirds were American citizens and half of them were children) would be incarcerated and shipped to concentration camps all over the US, solely on the basis of their ethnicity. Sad to say
You know how when people see a celebrity all rational sensibilities go out the window? They try to forcibly meet this person. It can get weird. People act the same when they see a school bus conversion in the parking lot, while driving, in the middle of nowhere, pretty much anywhere. We thought it’d be
Thanks Instagram family for inspiring this post. We have been asked quite a few times about the wall heater we have installed in our bus, so here’s a post all about it. It is a Dyna-Glo model . It runs on Propane or Natural Gas. There is a small space on the back to make
We made it to Albuquerque in time for the 2019 Balloon Fiesta. We found out about the event from some really cool people we had met at a dog park in Loveland Colorado. We parked at a Planet Fitness a half mile from the Balloon Museum and Park. The next morning we woke up to
One of the questions we were asked repeatedly at the Nashville Tiny Living Festival was… “Where do you park?” At the time, we hadn’t parked our bus many places. To be honest we had expected a lot more hassle in this area of #buslife, we have gotten a little bit, but a lot less than
1. Take your time. Everything takes longer in the bus. What will show as a 4 hour drive will really be 6-7 hours. We like to stop frequently. Sister Golden Hair needs her breaks and so do we. We will drive for a few hours (1-3) and then make a stop for a while (an
Engine, Drive line, and Suspension maintenance list and tips from our school bus conversion. T444E engine with Allison AT-545 Transmission.

A few days before finalizing our home sale we are left with a lot of questions like “where are we going?”.
Our Christmas was made extra special by the fact that we officially moved into our school bus tiny home and spent our first night at a campsite in this rolling home. We decided to stay at this park because it was relatively close and was fairly inexpensive; and it had openings when I booked the
This corner is one of Destoni’s favorite spaces in the bus. We decided to keep an entire 7 foot counter space on one side of the kitchen space, meaning we cut in the sink and stove on the other side. This allows us to use the counter space for other things like prepping food, desk
Our experiences so far have ranged from monumental masterpieces to mental meltdowns. We’ve ridden some pretty awesome highs and nearly drown in some damn deep lows. BUT… I’ll throw a “but” in there… in all of this madness we have managed to maintain and continue on even if it is at a truly sloth’s pace.
Our house is up for sale and we are moving into our bus today. We have many things left to do to make this Tiny Home On Wheels complete in our eyes, but we are ready to jump in and move out of our traditional house. As happy as that makes us we wanted to take a moment to talk about a serious issue that we want to address. Homelessness
When we bought our bus back in December 2017 we knew we would be changing a tire sooner rather than later. 11 months later and halfway through this conversion we are at that point. We found out that changing a tire on the bus is quite the experience, and can be quite expensive. I called
This isn’t the first time we’ve built or lived in a tiny home, but building and living in a Skoolie is definitely different.
We are from Florida, 10 months out of the year it is hot and humid and the other 2 months it is hot and not as humid. Along with dodging hurricanes and everyday showers, snakes and alligators, and trying to not get killed by the notorious “Florida Man” (Google that and see the insanity that
There are a lot of reasons people are choosing to downsize their lives and live tiny. We have multiple reasons. One of our tops reasons is the ability to get rid of the massive amount of debt we currently carry and to learn from the mistakes of our past with credit consumerism. According to the
This isn’t a story about how our life fell apart the moment we bought our bus, so sorry about the clickbaity title. This is actually a self-realization story about how our life has changed since we took on the challenge of converting our bus, downsizing our possessions and are searching for new life experiences. We’re
We are not professionals builders by any means but we have surprised ourselves with how much we have been able to accomplish on our own. One thing we have noticed though with our build is that the amount of time we think a project should take is always off. We are spending about double the

Downsizing our life led to a difficult and emotional decision to find our cat a new family.
