Thank you, thank you very much.
I'm still gettin' used to forums. Too accustomed to the likes of Facebook I guess. I'd made an album and thought that I posted in the original. That's what I get for thinkin'. (You'd think I would know better by now.)
So, I did manage to post a couple links to 2 albums on Photobucket for anyone that may be interested. I'll see if I can get some images in this reply as well.
With finances and abilities as minimum currently, I'm praying that my outbound trip will start before this fall.
I try to make a few bucks here and there with my custom decor. (Bird houses, signage, steam-punk style lights, etc.) I call that little venture "Cann's Creations".
The idea for Serenity, for now anyway, is that the rear of the bus behind the wheel wells will be my "shop". That's where I'll set up my table saw, workbench, etc. It will be divided from the front by a partition wall so as to keep sawdust up there to a minimum.
For the living quarters, I'm not 100% yet.
I'm thinking a hammock to save space but may build a fold down bed that doubles as a shelf or ?? when folded up.
Washing facilities will be a small stock tank with a shower curtain hanging inside it.
The lav will consist of a porta-potty on a frame above one of the rear wheel wells. That will either have another partition wall around it or just a curtain, I've not decided yet.
Cooking will primarily be either a small microwave that I use in the house now or a little single burner propane cooker that sits atop a small (1lb?) propane bottle.
Much is still in the air yet and I'm pretty much just working with what I have on hand.
There are a few things that I would really like to have for the adventure so I'll try to acquire them before hand:
Power inverter - unsure of required size yet. Will need to power equipment in shop. Perhaps a generator is a better way to go?
On demand water heater. Found a small propane one w built in shower head and water hose connector that appears to be perfect for this application.
Water storage and basement storage - TBD as work progresses.
Currently I'm getting rid of the rubber flooring so I can repair any rust. The inside panels on each side of the rear door are pretty much shot up to window height. I believe I may cut them out and replace with wood.
