Cap, I thought the reason you had such a new bus was so you could cruise around? I also live in mine full time and sometimes I take it shopping. It's a good warm up for the bus once a month or so, and taking my refrigerator to the store has its advantages. I can't say I lost the grocery list anymore. When it's full, it's full. It was kind of bad driving during these long spring rains since a heavy vehicle like this will mush a gravel driveway while the ground is saturated.
I first started using buses as mobile storage, then it expanded to hauling the kids bikes to parks and being a very handy cargo van during the rainy season. I still have two five window gassers with stick shifts but I never lived in any of them. I was in this diesel a couple months after buying it. I've probably only put on a couple hundred miles so far but I do intend to use this to travel extensively. Plans change frequently due to unforeseen necessitys.
