Hello! From midcoast ME
My name is Shawn. I'm a college student at the university of Maine. My partner, Dave, and I just bought a 95 gmc bluebird 72 passenger school bus with a Cat diesel and an Allison automatic tranny. (No speed demon) We are hoping to convert our bus for full time living with our two greyhound boxer mix pups, Ollie and goose. We picked up our bus last night and did a semi-legal, after dark, Stealth trip home to Searsmont, ME.
I'm hoping we can use this forum for help and advice, share ideas, share our progress, and to network with other builders. We have also started a website/blog to share our first bus build experience with friends and family and anyone else who might enjoy it.
If you have a free minute and want to check it out its ataraxybus.wordpress.com (our contact info is on there)
We are calling our bus Ataraxy which is in reference to the definition of ataraxia which means seeking tranquility and calmness. That's what this bus will be for us--a place to escape the craziness and monotony of our current lifestyle.
We look forward to starting this amazing journey and connecting with you folks!
