My advice to you is to use the back arrow on this thread where I posted what that makes a bus worth.

wow chuck_m, could have typed (1600)something in air today on skoolie.net? borderline pompous.
could be those skinny pants i guess, not sure. i wont ask you anything more about your bus scrapping business. started this thread to generate talk and info on skoolie related business ideas , i see you have been in the business a while, if you don't want to post on it don't?

Haha
Sorry if that was rough, but there are so many double posts and so many people asking the same questions over and over, even in the same thread. That's bad etiquette and a waste of time to rehash things said literally on the previous page.
Passive agressive **** like that is gross, so I apologize.

No reason to make a comment about my jeans. Like wtf is that all about? They are Levis 501s---literally the oldest style of jeans out there. Not skinny, just regular old jeans with the button fly. Sure, they're purple, but whatever.

Many people could stand to learn to use the site more efficiently. I give much more advice than I take, and I think it is considerate to read what is said all the way before asking questions. But hey, we all miss things and sometimes the inner asshole in me makes a cameo. I apologize. Its not what skoolie spirit is about.

Couldn't agree more, Chuck.
I lurked and read for a LONG time before ever joining or posting. But I have had quite a love affair with buses spanning a little over a decade.
Already had my current bus picked out without asking ANY questions. And I got a bunch of the info I needed by reading through this site. Also the school bus fleet forum had a TON of extremely useful, practical info. I really recommend lurking over there.

no worries, just a bit of humor about the jeans though, in avatar they look like skinnys. i dont have much of a humor filter, no offense meant, just banter, apologize as well.
i hear that about the repeat questions, i do try and read before i type as well but sometimes, well, i don't for one reason or another.... any who, value the threads and info you have shared chuck , and hope to over the years share some back. good times, pavement under the bus and no hard feelings.
we're all bus brethren of sorts.

i'm ready to start framing walls and counters in R1 next week! i'll try and get some pics up then for you folks!
thanks for the link CB.

No problemo, senor! I've found that site to be very informative with a bit of digging around.
