If you've ever looked at a school bus and thought, "boy, that would be a great place to live," please seek help from a mental health professional, and also consider joining Skoolie.net, a forum community of people who buy broken-down school buses and convert them into homes, which they call "skoolies."

The first thing you should do is introduce yourself in the "New members thread," where the moderators deemed it necessary to announce "bashing of the Jewish faith" will no longer be tolerated. What a great first impression: "Welcome to our forum, please don't ask about our mysterious anti-Semitic past!"

After carefully researching the forum's resources, you'll be ready to buy your bus! Just remember: Make sure you're only buying one bus. Don't suffer the same fate as this sucker:

I have been on the lookout for a bus for the past couple of months wasn't really serious about it. My original plan was to wait until June when I had saved up more money and the bus would hopefully be cheaper. However, I bid on a bunch of buses on an auction thinking I'd get outbid. Well... It turns out that I didn't and now I am stuck with five '84-'87 Bluebird buses.

Obviously, you're going to want to fortify your skoolie with bulletproof glass, secret trapdoors and an arsenal of weapons. You know, just in case you run afoul of some drug cartels and SHTF, which, judging by the thread's popularity, is a common concern. Naturally, the topic turned to zombie attacks, which user "Accordion" isn't too sure about:

Some people talk about Zombies. I don't know what Zombies are except from what I have seen in some movies. What I would like to know is if Zombies are real or could become real. Somebody please explain if Zombies are real or just some made up hogwash.

Finally, consider what kind of skoolie you want, and convert away! Skoolies can serve a myriad of functions, including:
