Dad And Son Team Up To Transform An Old Bus Into A Dream House

Patrick Schmidt was unemployed and living in California when a used 1990 school bus changed his life. Schmidt, who goes by Skoolielove, bought the bus for 4,500 USD in March and then spent three months and 9,000 USD converting it into a motor home with his dad; then Schmidt left for a 10,000 mile journey to Florida.

“My plans are to stay in Florida until March, then most likely find my way back slowly to Vegas, and up to Seattle to live again for a while,” Schmidt told Metro UK. “Find some land to park on. That’s kind of the life I’ve imagined for myself. Ride around, travel, find temporary work, and see where to go from there.”
