Good afternoon from chilly Gunnison, CO
My girlfriend and I bought a bus back in November from the Cherry Creek school district then drove it back home to Gunnison. We have now removed the seats, flooring, and just finished up rust treating/ priming the floor. I have been looking on the forum for the last couple months for all of this valuable information.
I will tell you a little about ourselves. I served in the military right out of high school falling in love with being on the move since. Originally from Montana but skiing brought me to Colorado for the last couple of winters. Steph is finishing up here masters in environmental sustainability at western this spring coming by way of New Hampshire.
We bought a bus to be mobile until we find a place where we want to settle for a spell and buy some land to start our roots. Alaska, Washington, Montana, and Maine are all top on the list as of now, but we would like to test all options so why not a bus.
We purchased a 1989 international with the DT466 for $3000 from a bus surplus in Denver. Since brining it home in November we have removed the seats and floor then preped the floor with ospho. The paint we used is rust stop from ace. We took a break in December because temperatures here dropped to around -30. When we returned we were lucky enough to use shop space to paint. Now it's time for a subfloor and build up.
Great to be in the community of skoolies!
