I need to write up something for this page, but for now, I want to embed this interview that we had with Wardeh of Know Your Food Podcast. In this interview, we talk about how our family decided to live in a bus, where we will live, how we plan to incorporate our living arrangements (like cooking real traditional foods and homeschooling), various legal issues and more.

Simply click on the player below and the podcast should start playing automatically.

    I saw the finished bus and it’s an amazing home! This is a great interview. You two are incredible (all five of you, actually)!

    I like the part where you discuss “social pressures”…this is a tough obstacle. Your commitment to your values (even within the church) is inspiring. I think true comfort eventually comes from being true to yourselves. You did such a great job on the bus and have shown follow-through, foresight and commitment.

    Dear Anthony and Jami,

    I first learned about your family of 5 from Wardeh at GNOWFGLINS. I just love her and all I have learned from her.

    I wanted to mention to both of you, that in the State of Texas, you can apply to be a Park Host at any of the Texas State Parks, as long as you have a “hard side” trailer….which your Skoolie is. You apply to be a ‘Park Host’, with the understanding that it requires a 3-month minimum, but we have good friends who are doing it full-time. If accepted, you are able to live at a State Park for free (including: water, electric and sewer) in exchange for working 20/24 hours a week for the park. The mom/dad I know split the hours…he works in maintenance and she works in the office. Near me the State Park has 6-8 families doing this.

    I asked them about working in another State Park in Texas and they said they could request a transfer anytime. :)

    This might be the perfect solution for you guys, but I’m not sure what the closest State Park to you in CA is??

    If I can help answer any questions, please let send me an email. :)

    Just me,
    Melanie

    HI there!

    I have been all over your page, it’s awesome! I also ran across your 2cool4skoolie page and I want to say you have
    convinced both my husband and I do get right on the same page. We have decided with our income tax return this year coming up we’re going to buy a skoolie. We are young, and our expenses are not plenty, but we are living with family now to save as much as possible.

    My question would be, do you think we could make a skoolie under $6k? We are saving like crazy, (and we’re even thinking of making a personal fundraiser) but we’re still trying to lower the cost as much as possible. But we still need the basics and the important stuff because we have a toddler. I would love to throw a mattress in the bus and call it a day, but with children I just can’t. We plan on living here for years, so I know the investment is the main part.

    Thanks so much for your time!
