Strong enough for wash after wash, yet soft enough to cuddle.

Strong enough for wash after wash, yet soft enough to cuddle.

Thank you for being here.

In 2015 when I first started thinking about buying a school bus and living in it, I was working full time+ as a baggage handler at the Seattle airport, spending most of my paycheck on rent, gas and insurance.

I dreamt of more. I wanted more for myself and my wife. So I set out to completely change our lives. We needed to re-brand our lifestyle.

I became the SkoolieLove Bus driver, and Mary became the traveling barista.

Surrounding ourselves with a downsized lifestyle, we looked in the mirror and thought about what we look like to the world, and what kind of people we would like to represent.

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
— Michael Jackson - Man in the Mirror

With the help of our forever friends in Florida, we came up with several shirt designs to celebrate this new life. This is what I want the world to see when they met us and others.

A happy, go-lucky guy, married to his beautiful best friend, living their live’s well and authentically. He wears his bus home across his heart, and she takes their Tiny Living snail friend around America along with all their friends and family.

Along the way we pick up trash, and have a “leave it better than when you found it attitude.” We also recently adopted the ideology “Don’t pass it up, pick it up” from my friends over at Soulful Bus Life.
