Their Son Left Home To Follow His Dreams — A Year Later, They Find Him Living Here

If you’ve ever been unemployed, you know how frustrating and disheartening it is to try to get out of that rut. Sometimes, to finally move forward, you need to do something drastic.

That’s what happened to Patrick Schmidt after he quit his job in California. The young adventurer bought a beat up 1990 school bus from a church, drove it to his parents’ Las Vegas home, and set about building something truly extraordinary.

In his old life, Patrick was working so much that he was never in his apartment. He desperately needed a change of pace.
