Hi Ernie. Welcome aboard and congratulations on getting a bus. Now let the work begin. Be sure to ask lots of questions as there is a wealth of good free knowledge here. This is the best site on the net. The main thing is to enjoy the adventure.

Howdy from another Texas Skoolie! --- Welcome to the madhouse. Just read as much as you can, develop a picture of what you think will work for you, ask questions and dive in. There is only one "right" way to do it...YOUR way.

Hello Ernie, you should fit right in.

Doc; maybe we should have a west coast skoolie convention? I think there are more skookies in the west than you think. There seems to be a lot of people silently reading threads on the west coast.

Your right, I haven't worked on mine a couple months because I just can't convince the wife that the sooner we get it done the sooner we can sell the house & move into it, BUT NOOOO she wants a new laundry area.

If you want to live in the bus you'd better make a new laundry area in your bus.

I figure a rock, washboard & tub should suffice, It will be good for her soul.
