new "skoolie" student

Purchased the lot a year ago (Maryland's Eastern Shore) and got my school bus yesterday!!!...So excited to be creating my new full time home. (My van "TRUE" is my travel vehicle). Thanks so much for all your info that found its way to the internet to inspire me. And THEN I found this community. How lucky for me to literally have at my finger tips the experience of all of you exemplars.

Let the Journey begin...

You are welcome! And I am a single woman as well. There are a few of us here! Everyone on here is great. I went to the gathering this past weekend and met a great bunch of people.

Welcome, glad you are here.

Have to take off the ceiling panels? ; Pajamas kitty, Eugene mouse, myself and a few other eight legged friends have all lived full time, and happily in this bus for over 9 months now, and we never removed a single panel. Just sayin.

Also i am not a rust hater, so long as it isn't effecting the frame or suspension, i figure a few rusted holes allow more oxygen in when buring the wood stove. Besides Eugene needs quick escape hatches with Pajamas on duty.
