Hello,
After many years of thinking about a bus conversion I took the leap and bought a bus this summer. I haven't done a hole lot to it yet but that was my plan as I wanted to get to know the old girl before making to many plans.

I have more than one motive behind this project and the first was to spend as much of the summer with my two kids out camping and using a school bus as our memory hauler, it worked. The kids have loved it and we had a great time this summer. Now it's time to start digging in to the conversion so that later this year and definitely next year we can hit the road and triple our fun times.

I started a blog after a few recommendations to do so by people more up to date, social media literate and technologically advanced than myself. I just wanted to make a journal record of the adventures with the kids and the overall adventure. However I know its good to stretch your skill sets now and then. So please forgive my poor writing skills as I go.

I hope you all enjoy the stories and the progress.

Find the hole story at opt-v.blogspot.com


Blessings to you all.

Welcome.

I'm not into blogs. I feel build threads belong here on this forum.
