Hello from the Green bus

Hi ladies and gentlemen,
My husband and I recently bought a 1998 Gillig transit bus in hopes of converting into our home on wheels. The last few months have been spent researching and planning the layout from design to the electrical and plumping. I've used several times, reading through threads and gathering what information I could find. Though I thought it would be time to introduce ourselves to the community.

My name is Jennifer and I have always lived a nomadic lifestyles. My husband, Michael is a true handy man and well, he married me so he loves adventure! We live in Washington state currently. We eloped last year in June and bought our bus in September of 2018. So far, we are still working on demolition of the interior, with one back row of seats that refuses to budge and side panels ready to be ground out. yes that's right, we bought a bus with rivets! made for demolition to be long and gruesome, but also very rewarding.

I am now beginning to tackle the electric and wires that run through the bus for the bus. this has been a hassle since the labels have worn off quite a bit. anyways hello! and nice to meet everyone officially. sorry for the long thread, I'm a writer, so it's kinda what I do have a good day!
