Let the adventure begin

Well we did it. Bought a 2004 Bluebird 36 passenger commercial bus from a few pictures and a short video. YIKES We fly up to Washington next week and drive it back, Can't wait. This will be our second bus. The first one is a 1993 GMC shortie. My girlfriend named it Nixie and it turned out really good. I really cant figure out the layout inside. So I think we are going to take out the seats first and then do some cardboard mockups for the countertop, bed, kitchen table/seats, refrigerator, ect. until we see just what fits and how. Not really sure about an enclosed bathroom with shower or how to configure it. We have so much to think about and research to do as you all know. We both are really excited to get started. Not really what to put here just wanted to say HI.
