Thank you.

I want to begin by thanking everyone for taking time out of your busy day to read my story, look at my pictures, and read my blog. (New IMGUR post)

I truly appreciate all the positive comments I have received from everyone around the world. I really feel the LOVE. Here at SkoolieLove, thats half of what were about. Because the other half is Skoolie. But here at Skoolielove, Love is what we are all about.

I had ABSOLUTELY no idea that posting a few pictures on IMGUR about my life in the last few months would BLOW UP THE INTERNET! I mean, its been utterly fantastically crazy insane. My phone cannot keep up with all the new followers on Instagram, updates on Imgur, requests for stories, BLOG READERS (!!!!!!!!) and things like that.

When I saw that I had over 1,000 views and a couple up-votes on my Imgur post, I was like WOW! This is incredible. Then it was 2,000. 10,000 90,000 And it just kept going and going. Then I was like…wait. What. Wait. Is this going Viral? ITS VIRAL!!!! I was FREAKING OUT!

To be completely honest, I felt like teen Taylor Swift felt when Tim Mcgraw came on the Radio for the first time. I was like, boo-hoo Na-n na-na, I did something of myself. Screw you Stephen. Ill take my cat Meredith over you any day. It was nice to see that people approve of my Bus Life.

I was so blown away that my life was something on the internet, and people were looking at it by the thousands. I always say, there are 7 billion people in this world, the hardest part of finding someone is realizing they exist. Its unbelievable to see that thousands upon thousands of people know that I exist.Many of you I have had the opportunity to talk with and message, and its nice to know you exist. I truly thank you for your time.

My parents and I are German, and speak German to each other. I sent the Imgur link to them, and they got hooked! They would send me updates on how many views we were getting (like I wasn’t refreshing the browser every 5 seconds). This is a chat we were having.

He’s basically saying that something cant be right with 23,750 views? Not even Bieber has that many in an hour. Then he was impressed that it jumped to 25,281. Current view count is

12 12 imgur views update

Which is absolutely incredible! Glad to be an Imgurian. I would have never imagined that when I bought the bus in March that a few months later, after taking the trip of a lifetime, that I would be on the front page of Yahoo. This is truly a dream come true.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support, from around the world.

    Hey Patrick… Great job publishing your story… An inspiration to many I’m sure. We went full-time in the 80’s. We were in our mid thirties then and lived the life for about 10 years in our wonderful home on wheels, a 37′ 5th wheel and crew cab dually. Became blackjack dealers and worked for a while, saved, then quit and enjoyed time off to travel and relax.
    After that we settled down in a house and worked steadily for the next 20 years saving and dreaming of when we could get back on the road again… Now out here again, we are retired and loving every minute of this life on wheels. We’ll look for you out there… Happy trails!!
