Newbie Saying Hi

Just wanted to say "hi" but really not a newbie in the skoolie world.
I've had my '56 Ford bus conversion since '99. Ever since then, I've popped in and out of several skoolie/bus sites ...I even joined but they usually lacked activity or were focused on buses other than skoolies. It's very refreshing to see this site is up and running .

At any rate, years pass and I almost forgot about these sites until last week when I decided to pull my "motor coach" out of the pole barn since I parked it several years ago. Originally, my plan was to service it then use it as storage for the many boxes of household goods the wife is packing and boxing in preparation for our move from Ca. to Oregon.
But after I got the bus vacuumed, cleaned and washed, I thought I'd offer her up for sale to see if someone could use a very reliable RV. However, if it doesn't sell, I'll store the household goods in the rear portion of the bus and then when we're ready to move, drive her up from Sacramento area pulling an 18' flatbed trailer with one of my many classic Chevy on it, to Portland where we'll be relocating.

In the mean time, are there any local or regional skoolie gathering coming up? If so, I'd be interested in attending.

Hi Wayne, thanks for the warm greeting. I'm waving my hand back at you .

Things are moving right along with getting the house ready to show. Might have to keep the bus to transport all the "stuff" up to Oregon. Suggested to the wife that we sell all the furniture, refrigerator and bedroom furniture, then buy all new when we find a place to buy. Just pack clothing and momentos. However, it's probably take about four towing trips, just for the Classic cars and Deere tractor.
