So nice to meet all of you. Such good information and everyone seems very helpful; definitely gives me a warm fuzzy knowing this community is here.
After a bit of a roller-coaster ride trying to find the right bus at the right price, my boyfriend and I settled on a 2000 Bluebird Mini Bird (8 windows) which we will be picking up next week. I'll be glad when its in the driveway
Our plan is the convert the bus and then drive it and our three kitties from Ohio to Oregon, via a stop to visit my mum in Virginia.
I'll post pics of our conversation and thank you all so much, I've learned a lot already! I'd love to meet up with some of you on the road!
