Outdoor Life - - NEWS - BY SAM SOHOLT

I had the idea to turn a school bus into a mo­bile hunt­ing lodge a few years back, and it had been hov­er­ing in the back of my mind ever since. But I fi­nally de­cided to pull the trig­ger on the project when I re­al­ized I might be able to help in the fight to keep pub­lic lands ac­ces­si­ble and open to the pub­lic. The bus seemed like the per­fect por­ta­ble bill­board as I trav­eled be­tween pub­lic parcels and raised aware­ness about the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal bat­tle. My plan is to travel for one year, spend­ing time on pub­lic lands and tak­ing part in many of the recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties these lands have to of­fer, in­clud­ing hunt­ing and fish­ing. It’s shap­ing up to be one hell of an ad­ven­ture. I hope you’ll fol­low along with me, and that we both learn some­thing about the value of pub­lic land.
