Arrow The Adventure Begins

Hey everyone! Im Scott and I am about to buy a bus and make the conversion to a life on the road. You only live once, it's silly that we are not exploring and making memories.

I am a computer scientist and my girlfriend is a navy veteran so hopefully with our combined skills we will be able to complete our project over the next 6 months. Personally I love projects so I want to get it done in 3 moths but I think that might be a little too ambitious!

Well, wish us luck and hopefully I will start posting when we purchase our bus. We are currently looking at a 1998 Thomas with low miles and high idle times. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing... maybe someone can shed some light on that. I posted that question on the general board as well the other day.

Oh and we are from Cleveland OHIO!!!! Go Cavs :P
