Being a doc of some kind, wouldn't warmer weather be better?

Make good money and have a lower out of pocket each month, living somewhere other than North of VA???

The title... "Conversion almost complete".. Is that even POSSIBLE?!? I thought taking on a bus conversion was akin to taking on the infinite. Never to be completed, only to be incrementally improved.

Very nice bus I've been pondering ways to incorporate old pallet wood and the like. I'll be stealing some of your ideas, I reckon.

LOL!!! Yes, I think it is possible - or at least we'll know very soon! I think they can be infinitely improved and tinkered with, but I like to get things done and then enjoy them - I'm not a tinkerer! Which is why I decided not to add the water bays and pump underneath. Sweet idea - but that may be the sort of never-ending additions that you're referring to. And YES! PALLETS are AMAZING! We've gotten some pretty sweet colors and rustic looking pieces. A pain in the arse at times, but very cozy feeling afterward mixed in with the cedar strips. Steal ideas away - that's what we did!

I saw the pictures of a proud grampa in the blog. There is no denying that grandbaby. Those two are a match!

Darn Right! There quite a pair - and I get the feeling they'll be inseparable!

Lovely lovely bus and an adorable family! As another PNWesterner (Hopefully around Skagit pretty soon) just pursuing your pictures makes me weak in the knees. I'm most likely still a few years out from being in a place to start my bus journey but goodness builds like this have me dreaming. Great job!
