Becoming a Skoolie!

As promised…the Skoolie Bus Conversion.  First, the kids flew to Maryland and bought the shiny 40 something foot bus and drove it back to Oklahoma. They parked it at their land in the country and started demo!

First up was pulling out all of the seats, grinding and sanding all of the floor. Then insulation and putting that white stuff on them. Now they are taping off areas the will build on. They removed all of the windows and made them airtight and put windows back in. There are lots of trips to Lowe’s.

You could call this part of the tiny house movement. Minimalists who value freedom more than a house and yard. On the bottom are a few ideas of what it will look like. Basically an RV, but customized for 2 kids, 2 dogs, and a cat.

I am in awe of their work ethic. They rarely take a break from the bus. But oh what an adventure they are going to have. And in our family its the adventure that counts! We turn everything into an adventure.

What do you think? Could you live in one? No mortgage, no utility payments, and able to flee should shit go down in the neighborhood. I could. I would park that sucker at the beach and never leave! If you would like to follow along, please catch them on IG @crosscountrycowans!

    Fabulous. I could not do it right now with a horse and all .But when our kids were 2 and 4 we spent 7 months travelling completely around Australia in a campervan. It was the trip of a life time. This bus will be a great adventure!
