Well it is finally going to come to fruition , im going to go get our bus on Tuesday the 27th of October 2009. For anyone that doesn't yet know we (my troupe) are getting a skoolie to use as a home/tour bus for our fire spinning troupe called skeletoncrew (cuz there is only a couple of us). We plan on being short term- full timers... if that's not a misnomer ,that is we will live on the bus full time until it is time for my son to start going to school .... in about four years.
OK bus details, Blunderbus is what i named our bus , and i hope the blunder part doesnt come to bite me on the ass. Blunderbus is a 1991 ,bluebird, flat nose puller, 72 pass full size, with a cummins engine ,and an allison transmission not yet sure of the chassis or if it is an all american or not.
It has been partial converted twice
the first converter gave up the ghost before the project was finished , and its next life was to be a temporary home for a guy who was rebuilding after his home was taken by the hurricane in aug 05 known as Katrina since it was more of a house than an rv there are a lot of non rv appliances. I saw a house stove and mini fridge along with window unit ac so instead of removing seats i will be taking out fridges and house stuff and replacing with rvish stuffs.
We will fly into New Orleans on tues 27th and stay the night in a hotel then on the 28th rent a car and drive to Gulfport Mississippi where will will pick up the bus and return the rented car . Our trip back is from New Orleans Louisiana to Amarillo Texas a 882 mile trip so if you are in between the two places i would love to hear from you in case it is a blunder
