we bought "steve"

My partner and i bought this: https://get.google.com/albumarchive/...Eeu?source=pwa

We have no idea how to do this but of course, first things first. After it's not so blasted cold we'll start cleaning it out and getting rid of seats. Know anyone in Foster/Powell in Portland who has extra space enough for working on it properly?

welcome to the jungle!!! link broken for me too.. i think you have to share that album or its only available to your login?

also, drive steve around while waiting to start the conversion.. that way you learn the fundamentals of running ab us and if theres anything wrong with him before you get in deeply..

Welcome! Glad you're here.
That terrified feeling has to run its course.
For me it lasted... well it's still sorta there lol
however i have become friends with it and am not so frightened as i was at first. Kinda takes the sting out when i am sitting by the fireplace with the kitty, listening to the rain on the steel roof. Or when my brain wraps around the fact that if i move, i am already packed, AND i don't need to leave my home, i get to take it with me... oh and it's paid off. lol Those things sorta ease the "wholy s@#& what am i doing?!" feelings that stirr up every now and then.

Steve... Buscemi?

Steve... Winwood?

Steve... Vai?!

Just a placeholder. I'm just trying not to stress about the inevitable stream of purchases that's coming up. It's going to be a looong process.
