Gypsy Spirit: Tour Bus For ErikMatlock.com
We are planning to build a tour bus to travel the country and promote stronger marriages and families. Taking this show on the road!
Seven years ago, weeks before our 20th anniversary, my wife announced that she was done and wanted a divorce.
Seven years later, we have survived the impossible and are making new plans for our future together. We blog about our journey and lessons learned at ErikMatlock.com.
Over the next seven years, we plan to travel extensively, build a bed and breakfast retreat and open another recording studio.
The current plan involves a custom-built, off-grid tour bus to get us around the country, share our story and find new adventures to document on the site and future books. We have several books already available, hundreds of articles published and plans to extend the Becoming a Better Man books into a series.
For now, we need some help with the actual bus purchase. We are working out the details of the land for our future little retreat now. It will not cover the extra expense of a tour bus. Already found an ideal bus, just need to get it home.
Check out the rewards we are offering and jump on the bus with us.
Risks and challenges
There is a lot hanging in limbo on our future plans. Once we have the bus, we still have a lot of work left to do. Look for a full series on how the bus is built and how the retreat is coming together. We have a lifetime of construction and installation experience behind us, but the whole off-grid concept remains untested.
Most of the materials for the bus will come from the construction of the retreat. We estimate another $15k of expenses and materials once we actually start on it. Regardless, that is the plan.
