Re: Great White Buffalo - 92 BB All American RE

Great job, gonna have to keep comin back to this one. The wife and I bought a 39 ft 1993 conventional International, thinking the same thing, wanna be mobile (wanna be ready should **** hit the fan too). We got a steal up here in Washington, $3000 with only 101k miles on it! Had to come home and start doin some research and your post was inspiring! Thanks!

Re: Great White Buffalo - 92 BB All American RE

Time for a bit of an update!

Since I last posted, we've moved into the bus full time and have taken a 500 mile round trip journey south to Tucson, AZ.

The bus ran great, averaging right at 9 mpg at 55-60 mph.

Now we sit parked at my parents property while the wife and I work a bit to reload the "war chest". We're are also just about finished up with our diesel conversion Land Rover Discovery. What an adventure that has been.

Since I am not a wordsmith and I know everyone loves pictures, I will step out of the way and let the pictures do the talking.





We also have two cats running around the bus... and the wife wanted a room that she could confine them to if need be. So we created a cat door in the bathroom door.


Home Depot carpet glued to the metal ceiling. Probably not the best route to go but for the time being it seems like our best bet.





Pantry that now has a door.

Test fit this bad boy into one of the storage boxes. Then I decided to scrap it due to battery charger issues. MSW output from the genny was just not want I wanted to use. So we bit the bullet and picked up a Honda eu2k. Night and day difference.

Our trip south included staying a few nights at the local hospital awaiting the birth of our niece.

And here we sit.

A great looking bus both inside and outside. You have done a wonderful job. It is something that you can be proud of.
