Wildwood isn't very far from me, if you'd like to get coffee or something sometime.

I had a 92 Ward with a mechanical DT466. That was a great engine.
My 2004 has the DT466E and its efficient and powerful, but not nearly as simple.
Buddy of mine just got a 99 Bluebird RE with a mechanical 8.3 in it. Bout the last of them was 98 and 99.

I guess I should of gave some more back ground info as to why a bus . In September of 2016 I lost my wife of 30 years due to cancer , at that point I had to come off the road because of the animals , we had 5 dogs and 3 birds .
In December 2016 I had a heart attack and needed a stint , no damage to heart , cause was stress and crown royal had to sober up .
In February 2017 I lost my house and all my animals to a house fire , after trying to figure out what to do I went back out over the road again .
Which brings me to my current position, I don't want to rebuild where I was living , to many memories and to much heart ache, so I decided a bus and moving to Florida would do the trick .
So the name of my bus is going to be .
MOVING FORWARD .
So there it is my reasons .
Ernest
