Hey! Our names are Shelby and David and we are 100% that crazy couple living full-time in our skoolie conversion. We finished our 2002 Thomas Built bus conversion on September 15, 2019, and have been traveling North America ever since with our adopted dog, Django Fett.

Back in 2018, we were both really confused as to where we wanted to go in life, both professionally and personally. No matter what we did, we just felt stuck. Shelby was suffering from depression and David wasn’t feeling fulfilled at his full-time 9-5p job. At the same time, we both had people breathing down our necks and telling us what we needed to do in order to be happy.

David has always loved the idea of converting a van and living out of it. But, at the time, he didn’t feel comfortable taking on the challenge alone and wasn’t sure if he could adapt to living in such a small space right away. One night, we came across a ton of school bus conversions on YouTube and just knew that it was what we were meant to do.

Though the journey has been one of the hardest we’ll ever face together, we wouldn’t change a single thing. Our goal is to provide content for the nomadic community that showcases the beauty of North Ameria, conversion & build tips, and information about life on the road. Society has made it seem like you need to follow a certain plan after you graduate high school or college. We want to prove to people that you can travel full-time or make yourself happy no matter how old you are.

What Sets Aimless Travels Apart From Every Other Blog?

Our focus is to produce conversion materials, nomadic life, and travel-related guides that will assist in meeting your conversion, bus life, RV, and travel needs. We base a lot of our content on our personal experiences, as well as opinions of those throughout the nomadic community! 

How Did Aimless Travels Get Started?

Launched in January 2018, we created Aimless Travels as a means of encouraging others to pursue their dreams and go against the norm. We decided to quit our full-time jobs in May of 2019 to fully commit ourselves to convert a school bus into an RV.

Want to Partake on Your Own “Aimless Travels”?

Thinking about starting a conversion, but have no idea where to start? David is officially accepting new build projects! Additionally, he offers remote, one-on-one consultations if you just need some extra guidance throughout your build.

For the right project, we are also willing to travel throughout the country to convert your rig.
