At long last, hello!

Hi everyone. I've been stalking this forum for some time now. I've finally realized that ACTUALLY JOINING the forum may prove to be considerably more beneficial.

I've been rolling around on this idea of converting a bus for my full time residence for far too long. The time has come and as much as I feel prepared for taking on such an intense and momentous project I realize I know nothing!

So, here I am, looking to you fine folks for guidance and community.

I will soon be posting my, likely repetitive, questions and concerns as I start this journey. As needed just tell me I'm a knucklehead and point me towards the thread that has already beaten my topic to death

I apologize and express my gratitude in advance!

Welcome !

Stop lurking and start planning your build so you know which bus you want!

Life is short- Get 'er done !!!!

Put pencil to paper: How many in your traveling tribe, how tall, how many toys do you need to drag behind....

You guys sure know how to eat down there. Could go for some real jambalaya....

Yep! It's why I'm here! I have alot of plans but as it is they are pretty loose at the moment. Buying the right bus is proving a bit of a task but I'll post more on an approriate thread for advice on that. Thanks for the welcome!

Yes, welcome! That's a point we should make every once in a while. This is not a forum JUST for people who own buses. People who want to own buses and people who plan to own buses are also welcome. Hell, they've put up with me for 3 years and I'm still working on the two biggest obstacles: where to store it in the burbs, and talking the wife into it.

So if you want to talk buses and learn buses, come on in! Oh, and scooters. And lawn mowers. And don't get me started about yuppies, or kids these days.........

I agree there are a plethora of people who have already done what you want to to do and figured out the problems....
