and I do just that.. more than once ive used the DEV just to run errands in... the folks at IKEA thought it was Fantastic when i showed up to furnish my new florida apt in a a bus.. in fact I even helped some poor souls trying to load a bed on a minivan get their stuff home too.. the adults "fought" over who had to drive the van home and the rest rode the bus with me...

this new bus... a cpuple of my fuel stops i got thumbs up and acolades from people "oh ive always wanted to buy an old school bus !! thats so cool"...

alas im convinced that if you just get a bus and use it as a driver.. just cruise it around.. that you';ll meet like-minded people... that is the purpose of my second bus.. it will always stay a bus...

I did create a disposable email address for that little jaunt, in case things went south!

Grrr! If this goes to Facebook, I m still going to be traveling single. I refuse to participate on FB. hoping someone comes up with a different solution. I don't think Craigslist is an option. Can't the Skoolie administrators help create our own board within Skoolies.net? This seems to me to be where we find other single Skoolies.
But....keeping tossing ideas, one will stick to the proverbial wall.

Ok, PoolRoom! As soon as you have the time......YOU DA MAN!

Btw, I just won my bus at GovDeals.com., Beaverton, Oregon School District. Drove and towed ( half way down the I-5 the tranny took a powder) it home and so far removed the seats. I m driving to Prescott Az. This coming weekend to pick up a travel trailer I bought in February and will sell it here in Oregon to finance my bus conversion. Then things will start getting interesting.

there are plenty of template programs that are an all-in-one completely done system. no programming necessary!!

I just do not want to be a part of Facebook, Christopher. I know, I know....I ve heard it all before, but I will not be a member of FB. I appreciate your suggestion and I thank you for that.

Oh my MAC mentors would have some pretty hilarious albeit embarrassing to me stories to tell you about how Computer Stoopid I am. It will have to fall upon somebody that can turn a computer on without reading the manual each try. I pass to Cadillackid.

As drama free as its been on here lately, I'd really hate to see this turn into a dating site.
