  • Taking Charge

    I had woken early and decided to grab a coffee and a pastry from a nearby cafe for breakfast. I returned to the bus, to a find a pickup truck pulled up beside it and the battery box open. His hood was popped and it appeared as though he was...
  • 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...
  • Making Lemonade

    I had no plans to title bus that day. My research had told me, I had fifteen days to drive the bus out of Nevada, from the moment I registered it. But after I had bought the bus, and had the documents in hand, my gut knew I needed to...
  • I Bought A Bus

    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...


  • Most of the #Baja coast is desert and cactus all the way up to the beach. But I've finally found a tree to hang my hammock from. Stretched out with a terrible book and and a cold beer, I've not moved all day...except to grab some fresh fish tacos for lunch.
How do you like to spend your days off?
  • Although #Baja is famous for it's white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, my favourite spot so far is this desert hot spring.
It's just a short drive north of Cabo along a highway with some butt-clenching narrow lanes and  no shoulder. But once you make it to this oasis theres a hot spring to soak in and release the tension, as well as a cool pool and waterfall to relax in.
What's the best place you've discovered on the road, that exceeded your expectations?
  • I used to manage airports. It's a high stress, time critical environment. Decisions need to be made quickly, often without time to think it through fully.
Now, the toughest qustions are 'How long should I stay here?' and 'Should I have another beer?'
