Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Originally from Iowa, we decided to convert a school bus and travel full-time. We enjoy meeting new people and exploring new areas. There's always something fun to learn/do or story to hear! We might be a small crowd, but we're very respectful and quiet.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Our skill set ranges from light computer work, basic handyman projects, welding, butchering, gardening, milking goats, kidding assistance, general nutrition and cooking for a variety of diets.

HopeBus's Pets

We have 3 dogs and fondly remember our pet pig recently rehomed. Please don't offer us more adorable faces. We can't say no(haha).

None yet! Just getting launched.

HopeBus's Hometown

Nice full time family !

We enjoyed hosting and getting to know this sweet family. The kids are well behaved, and genuinely interested in learning about their surroundings. I was impressed that they could identify plants and trees in our garden, and seemed to take care of each other at all times. The weather didn’t cooperate but I’m sure we’ll get to host them again soon.

Super Great Guest

Super great guess. My son has a Skooly also so they gave him a full tour and spent over two hours talking to him about it figuring out what he can do to his unit. Incredibly nice family enjoyed their stay here. Safe travels.

Great Guest

Great guests; extremely nice people! We really enjoyed talking to them. I probably bent their ears more than they wanted; I do not leave the farm very often due to the coronavirus, so I really enjoyed visiting with them. Have safe travels!
