Welcome Berty!

Ready to come on down and see if we US of A folk are as crazy as on TV ?

We are. But so are you. Buying a bus????


Tell us more about who is aboard, how long, what you want to see (World's Largest Ball of Twine is not to be missed).

You decided- Hardest part is over.

Ok, I lied- it gets much worse.

Welcome Berty. Lots of help around here but good help. May I suggest you type in French then use a translator to post. Gets your point across much better.
Good luck on the heaters, ou need them up there.
Take care,

John

Hummm ... not sure I could make it but I did think a proper retirement plan would be to buy land in an echo village in Costa Rica and have the bus shipped there
