Hello from Gertie in KC!

Just bought my bus and I am so excited to start my build!

I was really lucky with my find, a super long '95 Bluebird that is in fantastic condition. I will be converting her for full-time, off-grid living, so it will be a harrowing and educational build I am sure!

As far as I the builder go, I suppose you could say I've never really found a home, so I'm hoping a life on the road is where it's at. I have moved constantly over the past 15 years, and having gone back to school to pursue a new career (that happens to line up with lots of travel opportunity) I am finally in a place where I can start this skoolie life!

Any and all advice, from the many pros on this site, would be much appreciated!
