Hi Christine,
No I have not done a build. I have a few things to wrap up before I can dive into a build. I've helped with car restoration here and there in the past, but mostly just do what I'm told. I was hoping to help someone out, get involved in the process, build a network, learn a few things, and see if it's still a project I'd like to take on in a year or so.

I am also reasonably close to Rehab.

I have never done this either and am flying by the seat of my pants! It has been hard work so far, but I am excited to get the building process going. We should set a time and date to meet up at Rehab.

In Brookeland about 2.5 hours northeast of Houston. Just bought a 2007 international 42 passenger. Havenít started conversion yet but already took her down to Galveston. We definitely need a southeast TX Skoolie get together in the near future. Good luck on your conversion! Awesome bus!

Just a few blocks away. My art studio is at Hardy & Nance, but the bus is up Jensen about a mile.

You folks do know by now that we are having a Skoolie Meet N' Greet right? This Saturday (the 14th) at REHAB Bar on the Bayou about 4pm. All are welcome.

I am close to Houston. I have always wanted to go to Texas - I am heading across I-10... stopping in New Orleans today - maybe I can get to Houston this weekend.

I would love to see some more Skoolie folks!


note: Will travel for free parking
