New From Indy

Hi all, just making my introduction, I'm Justin, my wife is Marilyn, we have no kids just dogs. We're from Brownsburg, Indiana just west of Indianapolis. Close enough to the Indy 500 if the wind blows right we can hear them, and even closer to the US Nationals to hear the big boys clearly. Haven't bought a bus as of yet, but doing the research to prepare for the purchase and conversation.

Really looking to build something that we can use to travel with our dogs to see family and friends or hit one of our state parks or towing our Jeep to a Jeep Jamboree.

If you live in the area I'd enjoy meeting for a beer or coffee. It seems to me that I live in an area that doesn't have much of a skoolie following. So, hit me up.

Thanks
Justin

Very cool, thanks. Indianapolis definitely isn't short on older buses. Living here my entire life and playing with older cars, trucks, and Jeeps has taught me to go south out of the salt to buy. Maybe, just maybe a southern bus will show up in one of the many resellers around the area. If not I have friends down south that can help. Good luck till Nov and come home safe, once the build starts let me know.

Thanks. Traveling with the Dogs is most important to Mama. The car really fills up when you add 300 pounds in dogs fighting for the window seat, and of course there's only one that has the best smells. We are looking forward to the opportunities that a bus can afford us.
