Living in the bus for 1 year now.

Hello all, Im Johnny my family have been living in our 2000 gmc/bluebird for one year now! Weve put just over 10,000 miles on her and shes still purring! Most of the time we are in the Santa Barbara ca area working and saving to get on the road. Or big trip last summer was a blast we went north to Portland on I 5 then east along the Colombia river gorge cut through Idaho, Nebraska, and zigzagged our way down to gulf shores al. Thats where we are originally from. Then back on I 40. We encountered so pretty serious mountains but this ole kitty purred right through.

Nice bus! like the entrance strairway. I was contemplating doing the entire interior floor with that "astroturf" but I'm afraid it would collect dirt and be hard to remove without a vacuum. But at the stairway, it is good to collect dirt before it gets in your home.
Welcome!

Thank you! Dont do AstroTurf everywhere because you are right. It gets matted down and holds anything and everything. Pet fur is the worst. So it is good for the entry Im going to post more pics soon as I get a chance.
