A school bus that has been purchased by a private owner and converted for some purpose other than hauling people around, such as RVing. Can be a very economical, cost-efficient means of obtaining an RV. Example: I bought an old school bus and turned it into an RV! Now, it is a skoolie!
Welcome to my latest obsession, school bus conversion blogs.
My tendency to daydream is no secret. It's a habit I've indulged in as long as I can remember. When life gets a little too heavy my imagination has a way of stepping in and taking the reigns - steering my attention away from whatever is bringing me down and pointing it to a more appealing fantasy.
Right now that fantasy involves packing my family up for an indefinite road trip. Picture this: a tiny house on wheels roaming from one national park to another. No mortgage to pay. No lawn to mow. Just Scott, CC, and I on the open road. (Well, just Scott, CC, and I, two cats, and an elderly collie-mix. Hehe.)
Sounds perfect, right? And maybe just a little bit crazy.
At least I thought it was crazy until I started poking around on the internet. It turns out that there are a ton of families out there living the dream. Just type #skoolie into Instagram and you'll find a flood of photos and stories from folks out there living on the road.
In fact, I personally know two families that live full-time in RVs.
It's a thing people do and I want IN.

While I work on convincing hubby to go along with my schemes (I'd say he's a good 10% on board at this point) I'm living vicariously through the following Skoolie blogs. The following blogs are written by people who are out there doing this thing RIGHT NOW. It's almost too much fuel for my skoolie fantasy to handle.
