I have been reading and learning from everyone here for months! I am a writer/actor and I love nature, snowskiing and scuba diving. I camp alot. Have been flirting with the idea of living in a short bus. I am imagining a short bus that I can work/write and live in. That can handle driving in mountains and snow. I am interested in a sustainable off the grid set up, solar power -- possibly veg oil or electric. I would also love if possible, a roof top sleeper (so that I can sleep under the stars) Have not seen this on a bus yet. I have no mechanical or buliding skills. I am happy to be here and so appreciate the knowledge and enCouragement that is shared here.
