From Soul-Sucking Job to Full-Time Musician Buslife


“Why pay someone else to do something when you could learn to do it yourself and have that skill forever?” Tyler of the Broken Compass Bus heard that quote from a #buslifer when he and his wife, Raela, first began their bus build-out, and he took it to heart. From electrical to plumbing to woodworking, he learned everything he could from YouTube to create their amazing home.

Tyler is also a traveling musician, which between Raela’s travel agent work, pays their on-the-road bills. It’s a huge upgrade from the time that he worked 6 days a week, just waiting for one day to enjoy himself before going back to the grind. Enjoy their bus tour below!
