Hi EastCoastCB, and everyone else. We're Drew and Kristen and we're the winning bidders on the bus you linked . We've been here reading for awhile but we haven't introduced ourselves yet. We're just west of Chicago. Drew retires from his gov't job next summer, the youngest kid graduated HS this spring so Kristen considers herself retired as of this summer. We're getting the house ready to sell and will be converting the bus to live in full time, we're going to be nomads for awhile.

well at least the folks who stole my dream sound like good people!
JK- CONGRATS and glad someone cool got it!!!
I was only allowed to bid up to 2700, so I knew my chances were slim.
You have a VERY supreme bus. Use it wisely, grasshoppers!

Thanks! We feel like we're in the Cool Kids Club at last.


It's all so overwhelming, but we will survive. We've got it all planned out and it'll obviously go smoothly.....right guys? Right?????

We'll post up progress pics as soon as......well, as soon as there's some progress!
