I'm sending up the greetings flag in hopes that any Alaskans running WVO systems will see it. I'm new to the Anchorage area and think it would be cool to connect with others if they are out there. Hello? Is there anybody out there?

Re: Alaska

Hey emberglow, did you aquire your bus in Alaska? I've been seeing nothing but Thomas built busses around Anchorage(not that there is even slightly anything wrong with that!). I saw a huge bus yard full of them and was just wondering if you had some experience getting yours from a local school system. I want a 2nd bus to convert up here. I know one bus should be enough for anyone but what can I say.....I'm addicted.

Thanks for that link emberglow! There is a ton of stuff on there that looks interesting. I'll be trying to get the ear of some bus drivers to see where the bus barn is and any good info I'll pass along. Thanks again

Re: Alaska

Thanks, I was not sure whereabouts Id seen the "sea of Thomas builts"! Is this the same place? I saw this really cool red full-height shortie the other day with alaska military youth academy on the side. I've never seen a big shortie like that.....looks as though it would handle some semi-off roading pretty well with all the clearance and all. Pretty short though....interesting.

Hey are you still in Anchorage, AK? We're looking for a place to park and finish converting our Skoolie. Any suggestions? We got a notice from Municipality to move.
