A bus called quest
At 35 years old, after dreaming about a skoolie for 10 years, my wife and I bought a 1995 International School Bus from the Los Angeles Unified School District and converted it into a tiny home on wheels.
We left soul-crushing jobs, launched our own business, and took off in our newly built skoolie for one-year on the road!
Do you dream of traveling? For us, it all started with a lust for travel, and a desire to try something different. My wife and I met in Oakland, California – a city that is no stranger to skoolie life. I remember there was a full-sized bus often parked outside my house on 60th and Telegraph – I thought it was so cool that someone could take an old bus and turn it into a home. This planted the seed that would eventually grow to become our beloved Bus Called Quest.
Feeling overwhelmed? you aren’t alone!
There is so much to take on during the skoolie conversion: buying a bus, planning your electricity, and where do you even park this thing?! We hope to lend our experiences to others during their quest, and hope that we can help make sense of the madness!
