Kelly and Thomas met in college, got married a few years later, went on to get Master’s degrees, and then started the 40-hour-workweek grind. They found themselves wondering how they were supposed to do this for the next 40+ years and were looking for an alternative. That’s when they stumbled on the skoolie community.

While they originally thought their bus life adventure would only last a year, they’ve already been on the road for 7 months and don’t have any intentions of hanging up their keys anytime soon.

Tiny Home Tours did a great interview and tour with the Wilsons and you’ll want to check it out below!

Marie and Ben met while backpacking in Costa Rica, and somewhere along the way fell in love, Ben says. After living with the bare minimum for months on end during their adventures, renovating an old school bus and living tiny didn’t seem so far-fetched.

So now they’re the proud owners of Gus (@littlegusthebus), their teal and white renovated school bus that currently lives on a large farm property in Canada. The couple is taking a leap of faith trying to launch a wood-working business from the workshop/barn on the property.

The interior of this traveling home is coated in cream and dark wood and features the most adorable tiny wood-burning stove. While the couple is having a tough time sans-shower during COVID-19 (the gyms are all closed!), they are making the most of this quiet time. Check out the pictures of their bus below, and read our interview with the couple after the pictures.
