    Hi Hank and Bus,

    We wanted to let you know that we created a post on The Reclamation Administration about you (we say you on Colossal).

    Hope you like it, but let us know if you want to make any edits. Great work!

    Hello,

    Here is an article published in the French newspaper Le Figaro about your bus initiative – http://etudiant.lefigaro.fr/les-news/actu/detail/article/un-bus-scolaire-recycle-en-logement-etudiant-2552/

    Keep up with the great work!

    hank
    …about all i could muster was to leave all i knew for 47 years when i moved, with 3 suitcases, to england and married my soul-mate hubby….well, it was quite brave for me….but thanks for taking what so many of us think about and giggle about thinking about in the privacy of our minds and doing it and sharing it!!! cant wait to see the rest of this journey because i know you have so very many more to cover in your lifetime! keep safe and happy…and accept the set-backs because they are part of life to help us cherish the good times!
    softly

    Howdy from Cloudcroft NM. my buddy Heather Blanton has a snappy converted bus here in Cloudcroft and get this: she had a fantastic band that hosts ‘band practice” in the bus every saturday night. You guys have to drive through this part of new mexcio, chill out at 9800 feet, hang with the band, and love life out here. The School Bus Gypsies are just the coolest group, have this weekly event in the bus, and all is good. Park Kerr, Cloudcroft NM.

    Hank: What a great idea…I think if you are going as far north as Minneapolis, you and your bus should venture a bit farther north to Hayward, WI, we have a great campground and would love to have you and the bus give us a visit. Good luck with your adventure!!! Not to mention northern Wisconsin is a beautiful place to visit.

      As a native ‘Sconnie, I know it has a lot to offer! I always did want a cabin in the north woods, and that was the original intention for the bus! (It’s just too much darned fun to drive around!)

    Saw post on two tiny house websites, but just now saw it on Yahoo News/GMA! Woo Hoo!

    Have you all made it to San Francisco, yet? I’d love to say hi if you’re stopping in the city.

    • Hank Butitta

      Already passed through! Sorry!

    Hi my name is Zack and I wanted to reach out to you. I am currently a resident at the world’s first Self-Organized Learning Environment or SOLE. We look for people that step away from the higher education standards and make moves on their own. I am currently working on a tiny house company and would love to talk with you guys. Check out the website and if you are interested then drop me a line. I hope to hear from you!

    • Hank Butitta

      Hey Zack,
      We’re still trying to figure out what happens next and looking through our options, we’ll definitely keep this in mind!

  19. Jesse

    What a great thing, fellas! A true inspiration. The vicarious enjoyment of finding and reading your blog has reaffirmed my goal of a similar plan. If you wander over to the east coast know that you’ve got a secure crash site and a great meal in southeastern virginia. I have seen your story twice today on two sites not in your list. The most notable is mashable.com and the other is mymodernmet.com. Thank you for the resonating inspiration and safe travels, brothers.

    Want one too 🙂 but will be difficult to do in Switzerland with the same bus…

    Just found out about you through Demilked. http://www.demilked.com/student-converts-old-school-bus-into-mobile-home/

    I’m on my own adventure/oral history project down the East Coast and through the Deeop South. Good to see you are taking care of the west. Enjoy the ride, and meet awesome people. -C

    We threw out a mention of you on our company blog: http://blog.builderscloud.com/2013/09/why-not-its-small-sleek-modular-its.html

    This is so fantastic! Hope that builders and architects all over catch on to the remade and repurposed idea.
    By the way, love the response of the police officer in your post “Yosemite” – “That’s pretty rad.” Right it is.

    Keep it up,

    -Kathlyn
