That looks like a mighty good shop helper dog you've got snoozing on the old seats in a few of those photos!
We are also in Charleston, and getting ready to (finally) do some mods to our 1990 short bus after some downtime.
What's your plan for the bus interior?
We want to keep some seats but make more room for camping gear at the back, and I'm thinking of tackling the wheelchair lift removal.

Thanks, she's a great shop dog. I completly stripped everything and starting from scratch, planning on making a couch with a bunk bed up top and and putting one on each side. So it'll sleep 4 comfortably, gonna do a smaller kitchen table with cabinets up front. Getting closer and closer everyday, hopefully Have it all done by December.

That sounds great! Please share pics of the improvements, for inspiration to us slowpokes!

I've been casting around for some "new" seats for ours, to replace the ones that are pretty worn out and covered in duct tape. If you hear of amy around town, please give me a shout.

Thanks!
Sarah

Awesome, thanks on keeping us in mind for your buddy's seats. Appreciate that.

Husband does a lot of work for Freehouse Brewery up in NChas, and they've sponsored a few of our trips and such. Charleston is becoming quite the brewery town!

And as for BBQ, Duke's is pretty good stuff, agreed! Although I admit to never really finding any "bad" bbq anywhere I've been in the Carolinas. And hey, Chili, you should be happy enough with that tasty brisket they have out in Texas!

As a native born Texian, I cannot bring myself to recognize Carolina pulled pork as "real" BBQ. That said, it is just about the tastiest damned pork on this planet! Love that stuff. Especially the real deal, pit variety with vinegar and cole slaw.

Bring it!

Just wish someone here would break down and do it right.

Having grown up in SC, i feel the same about TX brisket. I'm with you on wanting some pulled pork local, but it may be too risky as most folks here seem to have the same "not real bbq" mindset

I had high hopes for brisket in Texas... went to a place right before I headed out with my new bus and it was well.. I think I was chewing on more gristle and toughness than I was good meat... im not a fan of pulled pork.. though I love a good chicken BBQ...
