Biggie Bus

I started converting my Bus in May - and now... The house is sold!
I should be closing on Oct. 30th!

So a few weeks to get everything onto the Bus and get it ready to roll. I am not sure where I will be going - but there is no better way to do it than to just do it!

I am looking forward to chatting with everyone tomorrow later afternoon at Sandi's Gathering!!

Glad you got the house sold, and YES!!! You just do it! Stuff is stuff... the super, duper important stuff can go to storage. With the two couches I built and the 42 sq ft under my bed, I have more storage than I need

See you tomorrow!!!

Thanks to the sound advice from Sandi - I brought my affidavit in to the DMV - and walked out with my Motor Home Title (-$87.75) - but worth it for peace of mind.
Thanks!

Got the Diverter installed! Ready to use.

I am going to rethink the "kitchen" and take a trip to IKEA - I would like to have cabinets.

Closing Date is creeping up on me! Inspectors and Appraisal done...

They didn't charge me anything to change the title to MH. All I did was walk in with the affidavit.

That is what I was hoping would be the case here...

it *IS* a great lookin Bus!!! its also got an allison 2000 and a rare 210 HP variant of the T-444E.. super clean under the hood too .. and i love his colors!!! real nice and peaceful inside!

its a Cruisin machine!!!

only thing I would want different is Air-Conditioning for the road..

and yep the only way to make a change sometimes is to set in motion things you cant turn back...

when I was doi g my allison swap to the RedByrd.. I really wasnt so sure of myself in the beginning.. but once I pulled a few bolts out and the old trans shifted, pinching some cables.. I realized the only way I could put it back up if I wanted to was to first take it out.. there was only one way to go - forward! so i chose it..

Kudos to you for selling the house and going for it!!!! reality is if you hate bus life you just go get a home-base somewhere and re-think.. but with your personality? you'll probably love bus life!

Christopher - I must say - you are one of the most positive and inspiring guys I've been honored to meet! I look forward to hitting the road - and, hopefully, meeting up with you and others on my adventure!

Our roads will always cross at some point!
