Busty!

So here we are! All nestled in the NC woods our conversion has begun =) I drove the 2 hours up to Mebane from Raleigh (taking back roads due to lack of license plate or insurance...yikes!! ) about two weeks ago. Since then we have jacked it up on cinder blocks to avoid any rot and yesterday began insulating the ceiling. (The guy we bought the bus from already insulated the walls from the windows down and took the ceiling panels down.) Once the insulation is done we can really dig in!!

Funny, I just moved from Raleigh.

Id hate to brave the heat and humidity in a bus there.

Good luck to you.

LRflip, tell me about it! We might move up to the mountains after the conversion is done or where ever else we want! Btw I'm very jealous of your bus! What a steal!
Nat & Nezzar thanks for the warm welcome! I've enjoyed posts by both of you during my many many hours of reading through threads =)

Or you could just do what I did and move to Colorado...No A/C required here.
