  • Over My Head

    With winter fast approaching, I decided to take advantage of the favourable weather and attempt to repaint the roof of the bus. I popped open the emergency exit hatch and climbed up on top to survey the task ahead. Shining right back at me – more reflective tape. I thought...

  • Time to Reflect

    Anyone who has converted a school bus will be familiar with the reflective tape used to cover every square inch of the exterior surface. Bonded to the bus like chewing gum in hair, it takes a lot of patience to remove it. When you think you’ve scraped off your last...

  • Flooring It

    The conversion of the bus hit a milestone this week, with the completion of demolition work. The application of floor treatment and paint marked the first steps taken in the bus rebuild. After three weeks of work, I finally had all the seats removed, as well as the wall and...

  • Off the Rails

    The first order of business in any bus conversion is to remove the seats. I had read many horror stories from other bus conversions, detailing the difficulty getting underneath the bus to remove the bolts. Having chosen a bus with seating rails, instead of floor bolts, I was quietly confident....

  • Positives and Negatives

    I travelled back to the United States over the Easter long weekend. This would be the first time I had seen the bus since purchasing it and placing it in storage back in February. I had four days to get the bus serviced, collect my permits and drive it 1300...

    Back in October 2017 I was surfing the internet when I stumbled across a used American school bus for sale. The bus was an absolute bargain, and I was tempted to buy it. I had just returned from a holiday in Iceland. Four friends and I had hired a campervan...

  • Good Morning #Skooliepalooza2019 . So good to see so what others have done with their own #SkoolieConversion . Hopefully will give me the motivation to get #ThisBus finished.

I've taken many roadtrips and as the driver you often miss out on some of the great views. In the bus I sit high and have giant windscreens to look out of as the landscape passes by.

  • @onewildridebus have joined us in Camp #BusLife so we've put them to work cooking breakfast.
The temperatures dropped below freezing overnight so we've all woken up to frozen water pipes. It makes cooking more of a challenge but #BusDwellers are a resourceful bunch.
Planning a massive #NYE party in the desert with whatever we can scavenge.
