Re: Where did your bus serve and where is it now?

MIne did shuttle duty between Hartford Ct. Holiday Inn (which became a Crowne Plaza) and Bradley airport-240k miles of a 30 mile round trip. The paper trail also shows that it briefly was used at a childrens musuem-then someone bought it as a work truck-before determining a step van is what he really needed.

Re: Where did your bus serve and where is it now?

We don't know what school district.

Prior to our purchase, our bus was owned by Wildwater Ltd in Long Creek , SC. It's a small world, we used to live down the road in Westminster/Seneca/West Union. We brought it out west in their paint. advertised for them for over 1700 miles! The bus was used to shuttle rafters from Long Creek, SC to the Chattooga, Ocoee and Nantahala Rivers. After it left their service, it sat in a field for a while until we bought it (still on an SC title). It was not far from where we used to live in NC.

Currently the bus is in Roswell, NM... until we leave.

Re: Where did your bus serve and where is it now?

The Bustache was originally stationed somewhere in Vermont. Then a guy from upstate New York bought her, and planned to cut out the rear and use her as a hang-glider hauler. But, he didn't get to cutting before he had to sell at a loss (That's where I came in). I took it to Savannah, Georgia for the winter and build. Then we hit the road for a few months traveling 30 states last year. Afterward, I lived in the bus while working on a farm last year in Duvall, Washington. Currently, it is waiting for me up there in Washington, but I am bringing it down to Las Vegas in a couple of months!
