Bus Life Update: Big News


First off, I want to apologize for my two week hiatus. It's been a bit of an overwhelming and busy couple of weeks, both with the holidays, and with the chaos of living the bizarre life I am. But I'm back! So to catch you up on things, here's a two for one blog post: A story about my very first break down, and also some big news I'm dying to share with you guys...


The Break Down...

I had my first major mishap with the bus life: Frankie girl broke down. I didn't realize just how close to the edge I was sitting until I was told that my transmission might have blown. MY HEART SANK. A blown transmission would mean I'd have to throw in the towel on the bus life. I'd have to start completely over. I couldn't imagine everything I had worked for, everything I had given up ( my apartment, my car, my savings account) would all be for nothing. BUT after 24 hours of sitting on pins and needles I got the phone call, "It's not the transmission." THE DREAM IS ALIVE AND WELL BABY!! I could not be more relieved and excited. Long story short, Frankie had an easy but expensive fix. She's up and running just fine now. All is well is the world. Thank you to everyone who heard about my mishap and reached out with concern and help. It meant so much to me.


The Big News...

Now let's get to the good stuff... I have some exciting news!!


Originally, as many of you know, my plan was to work on Frankie's renovation little by little as I had the money... BUT, I've had so many people reach out wanting to hear more of the story, that I've decided to take a different route...

I will be collaborating with Skoolie Homes and Sam Newton Media to build a custom conversion, and create a documentary about the adventure cross country in the bus!!


Skoolie Homes will be custom building and designing the entire renovation, turning Frankie into a beautiful home-on-wheels, while Sam will be capturing the journey with a mini documentary and adventure video of my exciting journey cross country.


I want to say thank you to every single one of you who have ever read my blog. Without your love and support, none of this would be possible. When I feel alone or begin to doubt myself, it's all the messages and support I've gotten from you all that keep me going. Thank you.


Love,

Lyss.
