I am Hank Butitta. Last year I bought a school bus, turned into a tiny living space for my Masters thesis, and took it on a 5000 mile road trip. The story was popular and now for some reason the world thinks I can't afford rent and live on the bus...
My name's Hank, and I bought a bus.
For my Masters of Architecture thesis I converted the bus into a tiny living space. After graduation I took the bus on a month-long 5000 mile road trip with friends. My buddy Justin was along for the ride, and photographed the journey. You can check out our blog of the journey here: www.hankboughtabus.com
Our story ended up being more popular than we anticipated, and was published all around the world. Which is really exciting! At least until you start seeing articles with false information telling the world you can't afford rent and live on the bus...
So with all the questions people have emailed us over the last year, we thought it might warrant doing an AMA so you could ask us about our experiences, tiny living, photography, social media, debt, futures, cats. whatever.
Also, you guessed it: we've got a kickstarter. http://kck.st/1uyTtMe We're mainly doing it to publish a photo book of the bus and our journey, but we're also offering a chance to ride the bus.
Lastly, I just want to thank the Reddit community for helping us share our story. You were the first place we shared our content, and you guys took it from there. Reddit changed my life. Thank you!
So, Ask Me Anything! (As long as it's about Rampart.)
