Hi my names Sip and I've decided to live small. Well as small as a school bus. It's been my dream for almost a decade to own and live in a school bus. Well the day has come, I literally just got the call back this morning from a prospective bus owner. We chatted for almost two hours about details of the bus and really connected on a personal level when I told this gentleman what I intended to accomplish with this bus. He told me as a younger man he had the same intention but his wife fell ill and was never able to complete his move into a better way of living. So I asked him where he had intended to go in his bus with his wife. He spoke of the Rockies and mid west and how he would make a loop every year following the warm weather. So I told him that I would make his trip and keep in constant contact so he and his wife could live vicariously through me. So we struck up a contract and I've made the down payment. Personally I can pay for the bus, which I might add is a 1986 35ft Crown bus with a 671 detroit Diesel powerplant in just over two months. But the reason why I'm starting this fundraiser is so that I can pay them faster due to crippling medical bills and prescription medications. Now this is certainly a first for me, not the out reach for my(every) community but the way in which I'm doing it. I've spent countless hours in a bus kitchen cooking for the masses as a outreach program lead in seattle before they decided everyone who lives in a vehicle is a bad or unwanted part of our society. I connected with all the different walks of urban homelessness and the community officials who are meant to be in place to help and serve. What I came to discover was that, we should all listen and help one another because your house could be the one that burnt down. Your grandfolks could be the one layed off and on a fixed income without enough to get by. Your neighbors kid could be the one that ran away from home, but the one thing these people will have in common on my bus is that they are loved and safe. Without need and worry. With warmth and love from me and those like minded in the Great North West and beyond. Just remember this is happening with or without you but we would love to have your help and hopefully one day smiling on the bus. Until we meet again -Sip
