This past summer, I hopped on an Amtrak train and went across the USA. I spent time in incredible cities; some I had been to before, others were brand new. While in Nashville, Tennessee, I found, fell in love with and bought a small school bus.

Transferring a title for a skoolie conversion project, from any state to California, requires patience, tenacity and the occasional shot of bourbon. I was prepared for the myriad of hoops I would soon be jumping through to get Bubba the Bus California ready. I loaded a 600+ page book onto my Kindle, I took a bath with CBD oils, did yoga and deep breathing. I was ready for the California Division of Motor Vehicles.
