It's still for sale... he's being really pushy since I have cash to pay for it..? I haven't even looked at it or driven it yet and I work double shifts until Monday! Also, can someone direct me to a thread about where to PARK this thing? I had a friend w a dirt driveway but she's being flaky... where's a good place to park a bus long-term? I'm looking at a space for 30 a month...seems reasonable. I guess I wonder: where do you live in them long-term?

Do a Google search in your zip code for "Storage lots". Places that other people store their boats and RV's. That's the best place to start. Good luck.

Where to keep a bus is the tough part of acquiring one. Friends are bad about flaking out. ask me how I know.
Good luck finding storage for $30 a month. $100 is more likely.

...now to see if this bus is even there on Monday. If not, oh well, I keep looking.

It CAN be done, its just not typical.
I managed to get free parking in a nice clear field.
