“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.  - Seth Godin

This quote sums up how I feel in regards to this website. What started as a way to promote my documentary "Life In The Bus Lane" has since morphed into a community of people sharing the same interest and communicating. Everything from how to find a school bus for sale to advice on what heat source to install

But there's a problem with the website and it's content. That problem is me. I alone can't write all the blog articles and cover the topics that need to be shared and discussed. We consume information at a speed faster then my brain could ever keep up with. Because of this problem I have realized that I need to start calling on members of my tribe to lend a hand. To continue to be a community. To ask them to give back to the very website that may have helped them take the plunge into becoming a skoolie.

Below are members of my tribe. No, let me rephrase that. They are members of our tribe. A tribe that automatically welcomes people regardless of their race, ethnicity, where they are on the sexual spectrum, how much money they make or who they voted for. A tribe that is thinking differently and has no set mold to which they will be forced into.

Driving Miles and Delivering Smiles.

Traveling a combined 20,000 miles through 36 states in less than 3 years, the SkoolieLove Bus has plenty of stories to tell. Patrick and Mary, two wanderers in constant search of adventure and freedom, are currently living full-time in the former church bus. The soon-to-be married couple adore their Tiny Bus Home, fully embracing their downsized lifestyle. Temporarily parked on 6 acres of land in the Pacific Northwest, these Bus Lifers are truly living the idea that "Home Is Where You Park It." Living in their 189 square foot home has allowed them to reduce their waste, limit their use of water and power, while allowing them more free time to follow their passions of spreading love and joy. SkoolieLove's main mission? Driving Miles and Delivering Smiles.

Garret Towne

President of employee owned business sheds light on solar for skoolies.

Garret has worked in the solar industry since 2009 and is the President of A.M. Solar, Inc. located in Springfield, OR. He has an Electrical Engineering degree and MBA from Oregon State University. Aside from moving electrons, Garret feels that freedom is the most important thing solar panels produce. It's the freedom to be anywhere, not have a utility bill, and still be able to enjoy the comforts of home. When not helping people move electrons and find their own freedom, Garret spends his evenings on his mini-farm, beekeeping and raising chickens with his wife and son.
