Re: My New Bus!
My bus has been in storage all winter and I'm really jonesin' to go get it! It's still too snowy and muddy at the storage place to deal with putting the batteries back into it and all that, so I'll have to wait a couple more weeks probably.
Last fall I took it to my brother's place up north and painted the outside (see the new paint job on my avatar). Crossing the Mackinac Bridge sitting way up high in the driver's seat was awesome! I would love to buy some land up there where I could live in my bus, build a small cabin or something just so I could have a full size bathroom, kitchen, and laundry, and room to spread out and build a vardo, restore old campers, build a tipi, and do whatever I want. In my current house, I have to park the bus in the street and move it every 24 hours, and some neighbors still complain.
I'm thinking about a few projects for when I bring it back from storage. I really love the wood dashboard in the Brown Crown and would love to do something like that. I've also been trying to think of something to do with the heavy duty tow hitch that's already on it. I don't really need to tow anything, but maybe a folding cargo carrier rigged up to fold out into a porch or something. I haven't been reading the forums over the winter because it's too depressing without my bus here to work on, but now I'm anxious to get into it again!
