I has filling up when we had 1/4 tank left.

Im really happy with that, cruise controll really helps

And why are you putting the bus away during the winter months?

I know what an "occupational change'' is. We did that. Used to remodel houses until Spring 2008. David got the idea to do hot dogs and had me researching to see if we could survive on the $$. He built the hot dog cart from scrap & junk over the winter and sold his first hot dog in March 2009. April 15th he worked a Tea Party Tax Day Protest. They expected 60 people.... they had 800 and David was the only food vendor there. Not the first time we did an "occupational change" David got tired of installing cabinets in SC and we moved to TN where he sold home security systems for several years... until my Dad (tile setter) got sick and needed help. David got sucked back into construction yet again. I am his "unpaid labour". This time, we have sold off most of our construction tools, so no going back (except to build the bus).

lorna , do you run the hotdog cart year round? I have a really got job , we also have a car rental business, and the wife likes to do street vending markets,she sells jewery,clothing,soaps etc, thinking maybe a popcorn machine next year.

We run the food cart year round. We are going to stop selling hot dogs because the BBQ and the deli sandwiches outsell the dogs big time. Better check to see if the health department will allow popcorn without a permit. They are strange about things. Quartzite is EXPENSIVE to vend at.

Re: we went camping

Iv heard that its expensive in AZ to vend, we wouldnt any, just want to go to see it, had friends that been going for the past 15 years, they a blast. the popcorn machine was just a maybe, if it was a hassle I wouldnt bother with it , wife has enough on the go anyway
we dont have weather for year round vending, when we do it (wife) its for something to do, and maybe make some cash.
deli sandwich, sounds gooood!!

Re: we went camping

We are as far north as we can be (for us) to vend year round. Denver has several street vendors and they vend thru the winter. David says that's too cold. He may be from MI but he's lived too long in the South. He says we need to be in a warmer location than Central NM! So, in a couple more winters, we head southeast. Unless I won the Lottery and than it would be much sooner! David keeps buying me losing tickets, darn it! He buys me 3 tickets when we get gas. That's only once, sometimes twice a week.
