This one sounds more fun all the time.. sounds like I could get away with running a genny here, after my recent experience driving DEV through the mountains in wind and ice I saw just how much heat that bus eats... I'm also much closer to my work stuff in Florida so if I need to I can get back quickly.

Other thing is if something happens and one of the members busses needs repairs there's a couple bigger cities within a couple hours where tools and parts can be had.

Quartzite is so remote I'd be concerned if I break down..

I'd be very interested in coming to a meetup, especially BEFORE I buy a bus. I'm still at the "overwhelmed information overload stage" and seeing in person would be much better than youtube videos. I'm by Cocoa Beach so not very far away. I know the wife would love to see some conversions in person.

We have made the decision to do a conversion and live in it full time.

The small house we are about to start building in January is in Crystal River.
Only 1.5 hours away from you EC.

When we get down there and are flying in & out of Sanford, maybe I will stop in and introduce myself.

Ha! Would if I could! Can't register without insurance. Can't insure without finishing conversion. :-/

My wife will be driving to Bradenton FL to care for her father in early January. Maybe I can have it roadworthy by February. Can't wait to hit the road!

I'm in Arkansas.
