Hi SlowPoke,

I sent you a PM, to your inbox, here on Skoolie.net instead of tying the forum with personal messages. I'm afraid that we'll be reminded to stay on the subject of Skoolies.

Anyway, read the message I sent you.

Roasting8,
Thanks, I got the pm and replied.

If I get a chance, I'll walk over and get a photo of the bus conversion down the street. One thing that is popular here is living on Narrow boats. They are the boats that used to travel up and down the canals delivering goods. You can also rent them for weekend and up to two week getaways.

You may get some good ideas for your schoolies from the photos.

I love the interiors of the boats; they look great Hopefully, I'll be able to do as well with my interior

I also took a look at the buses. Boy, it would be nice to have a double decker (penthouse upstairs ).

We've been thinking of renting one for a few days with http://www.viking-afloat.com

You can pick up some pretty good ideas for what to do with a skoolie by looking at other sources, like boats, over the road trucks, ect.

I'll try and run over and get a pic of the converted bus in town tomorrow. I have to go in to town anyway and pick up some new cycles we ordered this week.

Here's the link to where we live. http://home.clara.net/clempson/
The building has it's own museum. If you follow the chimney down to it's base, we are in that section. The section we are in was built in 1798.

Slowpoke, here's my best recipe for pancakes:
One cup (1C) all-purpose flour (unbleached best)
One teaspoon (1Tsp) baking powder
two teaspoons (2 Tsp) sugar
one-half teaspoon (1/2 Tsp) salt

Combine dry ingredients.

three-quarter (3/4C) cup PLAIN yogurt
three-quarter (3/4C) cup milk (low-fat is OK)
one egg
one tablespoon (1TBL) cooking oil.

Combine wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients, ONLY until just blended. Over-mixing will make pancakes 'tough' and dry.
Batter should be the consistency of thick cream, or sour cream, or thick yogurt. Thicker is better than thinner, you're not making crepes here.

On a hot non-stick or oiled griddle, pour out to the size you want. When bubbles form and the edges dry JUST a bit, flip them. DO NOT OVERCOOK!
The pancakes should rise quite a bit, and should be moist!

IF adding fruit, either dry or fresh, remember that you add it to the mixed batter, just long enough to mix it in. Dry fruit will extract moisture from the pancakes, fresh/wet will add moisture, so you will have to practice how much liquid to add/subtract from the recipe for your pancakes.

I recommend maple syrup, of course!
