I think every one of us has asked "What have I done" at least once. Sorry to hear about the condition of the bus, but my glass is half full (or there abouts) and I agree with cadillac. Start figuring it out. There's more mechanics online here than you could believe. If you don't have a camera, you're going to need one.
You may have a diamond in the rough. And don't expect it to work out immediately. At worst you have gained a good size bedroom. Also if you haven't lost $2k before, brace yourself. Life is about to hit you.

Thanks for making us feel better Doc. It's true, things can get worse.

Lol thanks guys. I went fishing for a while to relax. Decided to pull up my pants and just handle it as it comes. At least I have a rust free bus that runs. I mean other than the smoke and oil issues, it made the 90 mile trip flawlessly. even did 68 mph haha.

Obviously the next question is what were you doing with your pants down while you were fishing? No, no, don't tell me.

I like to fish naked. It's an old ancient technique. Haha
