New EP Written and Recorded in School Bus Conversion

While the rest of the world went into lockdown, Isaac Turner drove into the Oregon woods and later emerged with Skooliana Sessions EP, his latest record written and recorded in his short bus skoolie conversion, Skooliana. With little more than his acoustic guitar, a flair for storytelling, and love for life on the road, Isaac takes us on a lyrical journey inspired by bus life.

After losing his income at the onset of the pandemic, Isaac returned to his roots in music. He views the EP as an ode to the bus life and nomadic lifestyle saying, “the Skooliana Sessions EP was completely done in that creative space and environment.”

Each song has its own flavor. But the first track, “On the Road is My Home,” is an undeniable anthem for anyone who knows the excitement of waking up in a new place every day, and for everyone who dreams about it.

In this video, Isaac shares the story behind Skooliana Sessions EP. You can find and listen to the EP for free here, and consider showing your support for Isaac by purchasing on Bandcamp! 

Thank you for sharing your music with us Isaac, we can’t wait to play it at The Bus Fair in 2021!

Video tour of Stu - a short bus conversion

Aaron and Cat from @stu.the.bus sent us this great little Skoolie tour of their short bus conversion with the Powerstroke 6.0l diesel motor. In the video we learn a bit about how they were both working way too much to cover their rent in Seattle and how they decided to find a short bus for sale and convert it into a home on wheels. At the time of this video they have been living in a bus conversion for two years and have made more memories than money. Speaking of money, they talk a little about how to make money on the road by freelancing and Aaron even keeps a suitcase full of drums for street performances.

Video tour of International T44e Skoolie

We were lucky enough to have Sam and Carly of @flatouttravellers give us a video tour of their 1997 International T44e school bus conversion. The two are living full time on the road and in the video they drop a few hints on how they make a living while living in their Skoolie.

Take a quick 5 minute tour and check out how they concealed their composting toilet in order to still have a very open floor plan. Sam also shows us a great idea for an outdoor table attached to their Skoolie that allows them to cook and hang outside when the weather is nice.

Warning. You will most likely tear up at the end of the video when you see how and what Patrick proposes with. Grab the Kleenex box and hit the play button to take a tour of this full size school bus conversion by Patrick Schmidt. We also sat Patrick down for an interview where he shares some wise words about bus life and how it's changed his perspective on a few things as well as all the people he's met on the road living the same lifestyle but in different ways.

Get inspired to live freely on the open road and go where the bus takes you. Enjoy the short video below!

After meeting Patrick in person we realized that he's an amazing writer as well and is now our main contributing writer and website content editor. You can check out his articles below.
