hopefully laws change soon.
They probably will but not for good, more and more restrictive.

Here in Oakland, our police department has bigger things to worry about. The force just recently had its first graduating class in a long time. Unfortunately, I think enforcing certain aspects of the law get overlooked when you are dealing with soo much gun violence.

Good luck.

I think your just telling yourself what you want to hear, and avoiding the reality.

I wish I had started with a 3 ton box van delivery truck.

I have almost as much paid out in fines as I have into the two buses I own.

Then comes the price of storing them for the years it's taking to convert. More thousands of $$$.

People just hate buses, plain and simple.

Have to disagree, our bus is painted by a great grafitti artist and people tend to enjoy the bus. Every city we come to we find some choice industrial spots and just keep on our toes. It can be done but requires some work and a bit of perseverance.

Not saying that everyone isn't making valid points, I just think it is definitely more doable in Berkely, El Cerrrito, and Oakland than on SF.

San Fran people tend to call the cops a lot because they think everyone is coming to get their condos ;)

Gee, that's funny. It sounds like a full time job. I wonder where I've heard that before.

Hi.

Does anyone have information about monthly cost?

That info would still be helpful.

Live loved

The following site has a monthly cost log broken down, you may have to search a bit for it.

Monthly Travel Expense & Cost Log for Full Time RVing | Technomadia

It doesn't reflect what my expense log would look like but it does give you an idea of what to include when creating your own

Actually.....only you can answer what it would cost you (chances are it will be higher than what you are paying now).

What will be the cost of a place to park?

Fuel & Insurance cost for bus?

Does this include electricity, gas, water, sewerage?

Do you plan to have a TV service, Internet service?

Cell phone cost




Basically the same you have now minus what you are willing to give up.
