The Bucket List

Figured now that I know what slate I'm starting with I should start a build thread. I'll post random thoughts so i don't forget them. Random thought #1, how do I secure the double doors in back. I suppose I could look at and see if bottom latch like a van door might have could be fabled in. If not, I thought of tractor trailer type cargo door cam lock bar latch on both doors. But then I lose an emergency exit. So a cam lock on the drivers side and the stock closure on the passenger side. Need to figure out how to add a key lock.

Deposit made, flight booked for 6/11, my deceased brothers birthday, it's an omen. I'm a Skoolie.

The bus is 2-1/2hrs from the Twin Falls area. I'm flying into TF and he was going to pick me up and take me to the bus. But then I found out one of my best friends lives in TF. So I will fly in and stay with my friend that night and have the seller bring the bus to me, he has to make the trip anyways, no sense in me making an extra 5 hours with 30 ahead of me. It's an older guy who took care of it the year or 2 he owned it. I think this was the one they bought to haul 15 grandkids around in and ended up only using it once. I paid a bit more than I wanted to, but think once I have it I will not have regretted that.

Good luck man!

It looks like a nice bus, now to put a 30 hour dent in that drivers chair

Gonna be a long 2 weeks. I gotta start watching my budget. It seems the airfares go up $100 an hour. $392 from Atl. to TF 2 weeks out, 1 day earlier and it jumps to $472, one week earlier and it's $593.

I find most of the "discount" airfare sites sell the same seat for the same price. My only criteria is I can leave no sooner than noon, and I have to arrive same day, for less than $400.
