OMG! I did it!

Hello! Just purchased a 2001 Thomas Freightliner FS-65. Planning on taking it to Burning Man.

Wish me luck!

You've got a little time. Are you going to fix up your bus?

If you make BM...be prepared to wash every square inch, inside & out, above and below when you depart. The dust there is highly caustic.

While there...enjoy the Madness!!!

Yep planning on putting a deck on top and doing a whole conversion inside. Will post pics as I go. Was just reading the thread on VT registration. Wow that looks like the way to go.
Will go pick it up next week and the only thing I am dreading is getting it insured, registered and back home. After that my nerves will settle down.
