Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

It's beautiful in it's simplicity!

(Not to mention that there are less corners for little heads to be bumping on while they're toddling/playing.)

I think it looks nice, relaxing and quite accommodating!

The sudden move

Hello all sorry for the massive delay in writing. Much has happened like we have moved to Portland Or from central Minnesota. I have never been more proud of my bus! It did everything I needed it to plus it did it in style with much class. So here is the low down I was in process of painting the bus. I finished 2 days before we left and I'll include photo's. We had no problems on the road it got consistent gas mileage plus it pulled of the continental divide and 4th of July pass without any problems loaded plus pulling our family car. All I have to say is My bus Rocks...

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

I like the visual... My kids think your idea is a hit and cheered at the idea. Originally my paint scheme was different but I found some recycled paint(left overs) mixed up enough for the body(a small crap load) and shot it. I really like how it turned out but I will probably rename the rig. There we Go please all help me rename this bus. I'm drawing a blank...

What you think all give me some idea's
