Hello All! Looking to decide

Greetings all!

I'm still the in the decision phase, and have been rummaging around the site looking for info. I'm working on designing my basic layout and solving potential problems before I start any work. Right now, I still have not purchased a bus, but I hope to soon. I am planning on around a 66-77 passenger dog-nose style.

I'm a photographer and while I have not been using my camera much lately, I look to pick it up again. I love to travel, and I have never been able to do it nearly as much as I like. I'm also a ham radio operator so I will be factoring that into my build as well.

I hope to learn a lot though this site, and from the looks of it I will.

Welcome photographer. Do you own coveralls yet?

I think you should photograph every square inch of the underside of your bus when you get one.
Worked for me in designing layout of some areas and things. Nice reference without crawling under again until I needed measurements to work my plans.

John

ps: wear eye protection under there. You only get one set.

I will again, unless I can find my old wildland FF. I used to be a FF, so I am used to getting messy, and working on old diesels. My first engine co assigned to was a 1977 Mack CF600.

One of my many pedigrees lol, is that I am the son of VE3QN, who went on the air in 1936.
Nice you will have that in your build.
