Minimum cold cranking amps for DT466?

Looking around for batteries. The ones that I'm replacing had 925 cold cranking amps, but I'd take a good priced battery with lower cranking amps as long as it was sufficient. How low can you go with a DT466 and still get the job done? My plan is to maintain the batteries well and only drive the bus a few times a year.

I've driven mine from KY to FL on one group 31 battery. But you really should run two of em. Mine were $75 each at Rural King. A year ++ later and it still starts INSTANTLY.
