Smile Complete beginner!

Hi all!

I live in the northeast! I have not bought a bus yet, but I hope to purchase a bus around the middle of this year. I am in the planning stage, trying to get info and learn all the things I need to know. I think a midsize bus will be good for me. and I can not wait to live in my own place, wherever that place may be!

go south to N C for your bus, rust is a real problem up there. in VA contractors are paid by the ton to spread salt, they got to be billionairs
