Re: The Flying Squirrel - 1974 Crown Supercoach - Update 11/

Hello inkspots,

Wish I had been more active when you were posting earlier about getting your bus. We are in Kingman, AZ for now. Just down the road from Flagstaff, and we live about 60 miles from the Western Rim of the Grand Canyon. We should be here until April or so of next year.

We are planning to head back across the states to South Carolina (My parents are in Raleigh)

The paint job is awesome, and my hubby is in love with the curves on your bus. Keep us posted with your pictures.

Brat
PS Did you keep the kitty??

Hi Brat,
Yes we kept the kitten, his name is Fuzz!

Thank you for the compliments! Once it warms up and we touch up the paint, we'll post new pictures. We are just outside of Raleigh in Zebulon, so if you are in the area definitely let us know! I feel like we drove right past you. Must be an incredible place to stay.


Bus update: On the last trip, the mini fridge we were given leaked and roughed up some of the floor. We decided to tear out the floor, and plan to add a little more insulation and linoleum. We are also dismantling our temporary set up (including the couch) and decided to build everything in so we can take better advantage of the available space.

Next warm day here we'll be stripping out the inner wall skins so we can start insulating and framing. We've got plenty of time to do the work but funds are limited so it's gonna take a while!

So not really an update, but we started a GoFundMe for our bus!
We aren't rich people and need help, so we figured it couldn't hurt to ask!

Otherwise there is ZERO updates for the bus. Between the money crunch and the trouble weather, it's definitely safer to stay inside! I'm hoping it warms up soon so we can get back to work.

Hopefully some other Skoolie's are making me progress than we are right now. Stay warm everyone!

So- are you a charity or non-profit or something? It looks like you have a home and a nice bus, so why the gofundme? It says that there is no campaign found when i click on it.
I'm just wondering. If you have success I may try my hand at asking for money from strangers.

Let's stay positive and not drag personal feelings or politics into our favorite pass time. There's a bus for me and a bus for you. different strokes for different folks. Coop

Nice Crown.

I really like those Crowns. They are just beautiful. I hope to have one some day.

I don't have mine yet. It's in North Cali, picking it up on the 25th. Bought it sight unseen which is totally crazy. hopefully won't bite me in the ass driving back to NM.
