We are in Roswell... NEW MEXICO! Long, long ways from "Bama. Every time I have to do an order for appliances I have to go back and change the state from GA to NM.
We brought our bus "home" from Almond NC to Franklin NC on the back roads (Needmore to Lower Burningtown to Airport Rd to Trimont Lake Road and up my parents driveway). Stripped it, loaded our stuff in it, packed my kids stuff up, packed up the Class C, hitched our Jeep to the bus, hitched the food cart to my daughters Jeep and we left NC headed for NM. No tags, no insurance, just a Bill of sale and old SC title. Left the bus for a couple years in Socorro. Drove it over to Roswell (NM) without tags, insurance and apparently no headlights (they shut down on us... don't know why, haven't checked it out, I suspect a bad light switch... spent the cold night on the side of the road in Tinnie), just the old title and bill of sale. We need to get the bus titled in a few months. That's gonna be fun. Roswell NM DMV (they call it MVD) is a PITA.
BTW, we checked with a used car dealer we knew. He said we could either get a temp tag thru him or we could run on the bill of sale. We took the risk for the bill of sale. If we were to do over, we would get the temp tag. The police are looking for for revenue. So much so in NM, that David & I call them Revenuers. We aren't the only ones to notice this trend and others have picked up on the nickname.
