So, We bought a bus today

2002 International Type D Transit. Low miles, dual AC, doesnt drip a drop of fluid on the ground. Had to drive 300 miles to the Oklahoma/ TX Border to pick this baby up. We are excited to start this project as a family. Ive been stalking this forum for sometime and greatly appreciate the wisdom and insight folks share openly here. My friends and family think we are insane for selling our perfectly good camper to buy a school bus lol. I come here for confirmation that I'm NOT insane and this is an AWESOME way to make memories with the youngins while they are still young.

The end goal is to have a single vehicle that both mine and my buddies family can travel long distance in. Share driving on the way to the grand canyon or yellowstone etc. My crew will use it as a motorhome for closer places like state parks and the beach.
