More pics of this bus, please ;)

Re: Considering selling our bus.

Why not put the bus in storage and have a friend keep an eye on her? That way she will be waiting for you if or when you come back.

That's the current plan, just can't think about parting with it. So many great memories, even in the few months we traveled in it. The only reason we were considering selling was that, if we stay long, it would lose value just sitting there.

You might also consider putting it in an RV park or some other property with hookups and rent it out as a residence. Not sure how I'd feel about someone else living in my bus, but at least it would be generating income. Just brainstorming here...

Don't get mad but here comes the voice of reason. How much value do you think you are going to lose? You wont lose much more in two years than you would if you sold today. New school buses cost upwards of $100,000 and sell for a couple of thousand when the school is done with them. You must have known that putting $4000 into a paint job would not return $4000. That same goes for tires. You can't sell a bus without tires. You built the bus exactly how you want it for enjoyment. You didn't build it to make money. I say keep it. Prepare it for long term storage. Maybe buy a set of old tires and sell off the tires while they are still fresh. Sell the generator to. Buy another one when you come back. Anything that will go bad in storage, get rid of. Anything that can be replaced at a future date, bye, bye.

Now here comes the really shitty part, sometimes I wish I would take my own advice.

Nice to see what's been going on here after being off for quite a while. We'll be back in the good old USofA soon and we're seriously considering selling our bus as it we really love living in Malta and having Europe in our 'backyard'. We'll see how she's been doing in our absence and decide.
Cheers!

Not so much, I've seen a few. But here's more than you ever wanted to know about 'Maltese Falcon':

HERE is the original reference.

HERE is the amazing yacht by that name. (I just saw it in Malta recently)

Of course, there's the Humphrey Bogart movie.

And, finally the fact that the statue from that movie sold for a crazy amount.
