Oh, come on. Everybody needs a bus to play with. It's completely normal to have bus envy.

First question. Are you actually able to catch the geese? In my experience they do not like to be man handled at all, but they do make a good security alarm. I can't even begin to imagine traveling with a cow, or how that drastically changes cleaning the bus.
At one time I had thoughts of structurally lowering the rear frame rails of a long bus to make a two horse stable.
Can't you visualize the cow drooling while looking out the window at all the grass going to waste on the side of the freeway during the trip? So you would probably go to camp sites where, generically, pets are welcome and maybe you'd be giving away free milk and goose eggs.

Depending on the engine and transmission you may be able to pull and animal carrier. Youd have to figure out how much one of those cost as well lol.

I agree!! whats funny is I thought all of my friends would call me crazy the first time I got a bus.. they didnt say much..

so when I decided to get a new one I REALLY thought theyd call me Cray-Cray...

its been quite the opposite.. im hearing things like "HOW COOL!! the fun we can have in a bus!".. and

"we all kept waiting for you to get your other bus out but you never did.. it just sat in the garage.. ".

"what a Cool idea.. why didnt we think of that for an art show studio.." was one response..

its amazing how many people will think your bus and bus project is super neat!

Anybody that has ever spent time in a cubical should clearly see the positive things about a bus. Obviously most of us are not exactly wealthy or we might have taken an easier route towards a mobile lifestyle.

I wouldnt buy a pre-made RV even if I could afford a $300k one...

yes I totally agree on the cubicle!! I thrive in my free-style world of working-walking-driving-travelling etc..

being a tech visionary and also a CodeMonster, and a Hardware DEV.. makes a Bus the PERFECT mix of work and fun....

Well considering the Bluebird Wanderlodge that recently sold for $3,500 just 20 miles away, there are occasional RVs or even skoolies being sold that one could use. If I couldn't get a bus I'd get a box truck. If I got an RV as a freebie I'd take it, and if it was good enough even use it, but it would have to be a lot better than my bus.
