Hello Ya'll

I have used this for a few seasons but I'm planning to move back to my home state of Florida this coming year and live in her full time. Got some changes and additions planned for the next year or so and I can't wait to get started! I love the Skoolies!

Hello again

Hello everybody, no replies at all from the initial post, maybe it did not post properly? I have a 1996 Chevy Bluebird with a Caterpillar motor and Alison automatic. Gonna move back to Florida this spring and live in it!

It would appear as if you have a pretty nice conversion.

What sort of changes are you going to be making?

After using it for a while did you discover your original plan didn't work as you hoped it would?

One of the attributes of a conversion is they are never ever really completed. Someone is always coming up with a better mousetrap. And unlike commercially made RV's and conversions, since you put them in you know how easy it would be to make changes.

Hi Scott! Looks great! I'm living full time in my bus in Florida! There's also a thread for an East Coast get together for February in Central Florida, if you're down here by then. Looks like a nice build!

not gonna make it down till the first of May or so, but hopefully we can all get together in the summer. I have a spot lined up in Beverly Hills Florida at Sandy Oaks, up around Crystal River. I'm moving back because I'm from Florida and miss the SCUBA diving.

I love it over there. My mom is in Gilchrist County and I have property in Morriston. Crystal River - home of the most manatees!!!

I'd also be up for a get together in the summer, after mid-July... right after the February get together I'm off to Nebraska, then Bali (both work related) then a cruise in March, China to deliver a baby in April, Texas for a conference in May then I am walking the Camino de Santiago with one of my grandgirls June 3-July 5th then 10 days in Paris then home... Until mid-September, when I'm taking the WanderLust Bus on the road for at least a year. Goal, hit up 49 states and the D.C..

Gonna be a crazy next couple of years!!

I plan on posting to my blog from the road. Should be quite the adventure!

You have a lovely Christmas and New Year, as well! Hope to meet you over the summer!
