Brand New Member! Parking Tix?

I haven't begun to read anyones conversations or discussions yet. I'm contemplating the purchase of a 1960 Chevy.

All signs are leading to YES I SHOULD. I just don't know where I would store it all the time.

........ Any suggestions? Anyone have issues with parking tickets?

Well, what kind of ideas. other than RV parks are there, to park in?

I've thought of Public Water access sites. Or, grocery stores. I'm sure I could stay there for a couple nights at end?

I could just drive it.

All day, all night. Sleep. Bring it back to work. I can park here. I'll bet I could make it through the parking lot.

Like just drive from grocery store to grocery store, back to work each day. For awhile.

And Type I diabetes. I really need to rely on health insurance... or INSULIN! from something...

Some self-storage facilities have a little extra space beside the buildings for vehicle storage. That might not be a convenient or secure place to be working on a conversion, however.

Correct. I've thought a little about that. Not to mention my rig, I'm comparing to buy. Is actually used as a business billboard currently. As I wouldn't mind doing that myself for my business.

Thanks for the reply. Please keep ideas coming!

Driving a bus gets costly fast. They make terrible mileage.

If your on insulin, remove all refined sugar from your diet. I mean All. Even the sugar in table salt is enough to put me back on insulin. I have been insulin free for around 5 years now.

This is what doctors don't want you to know.

There are very few people on here that can honestly say that they stayed within the timeframe they originally scheduled to get their conversion done and get on the road.

Don't count on parking just anywhere while you convert. You may be thinking "Oh, I only need to do this for a couple of weeks or a couple of months", when actually, it could possible end up being a couple of years.

We are in the process of converting and actually didn't really set a time to get it done, but I can tell you, that both of us never thought that we would have so little done in 2 1/2 years.

Time, illness, weather has kicked the **** out of our game plan (as bad as the plan was).

As already told....plan on having a place to put her before you buy her.

My question is. If I were to rent at an apartment. Would they allow me to park a bus?

I could say it's for business use too. I mean, it is. LIFE BUSINESS
