7 Months In, Our 3 Favorite Buslife Appliances

7 Months In, Our 3 Favorite Buslife Appliances

As with any major life-change, moving into a skoolie brought with it all sorts of unexpected challenges. We did our best over the two years between purchasing the bus and hitting the road to imagine and plan for all the challenges that buslife might throw our way, but you simply can’t know what to expect until you are actually living full-time on the road.

When this posts, in mid-May of 2021, we will have been on the road for seven months, and let me tell you, it is amazing how quickly time passes.

The ULTIMATE GUIDE to Removing All Those Goddamn Rivets from Your Skoolie

The ULTIMATE GUIDE to Removing All Those Goddamn Rivets from Your Skoolie

Perhaps the biggest downside to picking a skoolie as your new home is that unlike many of the other options, the school bus requires a lot of demolition before you can start building in there. With a cargo van like a Sprinter or Promaster, you are pretty much ready to build from the start. For us, it took months of work removing old panels, seats, insulation, flooring, heaters, superfluous wiring, you get the picture. All of it was difficult, but the panels in particular stand out as a traumatic memory because they are held on with a seemingly uncountable number of rivets. So, how do you get rid of all those rivets? Continue reading The ULTIMATE GUIDE to Removing All Those Goddamn Rivets from Your Skoolie

The Work Continues

The Work Continues

Okay, so it has been two months since the last post. Where we left you Bea was in need of a new wastegate actuator, which was unfortunately discontinued. We had ordered one on ebay and were crossing our fingers that it was the right part.

So, We Bought a Bus

We have officially started the journey. It has shifted into reality from the realm of dreams. I am happy to introduce you all to sweet Bea, the treehouse. We bought her from a fellow in Denver who owns a shop called Colorado Custom Coachworks and
