Got the new bus back in Ebro on Thursday, have not done a single thing to it besides pull the dead batteries.
After attending the recent Skoolie Gathering, I was even more anxious to get a bus. One of the attendees told me the secret – bidding on multiple buses at the same time…..and BOOM! Here she is – The CornHusker…straight out of the University of Nebraska motor pool. The plan is to roll up to Tuscaloosa for a funeral Monday, then snatch the nephew for shuttle driver/boredom prevention, and we will head out Mon/Tues. I am really excited about getting started on the conversion, and being mobile once again.
Had a good weekend just north of Orlando hanging with other Skoolie Folk
It was tough.
Shopping for a new rig has not been going well. Used school buses are becoming the new rage, and the bidding wars are pushing them out of my price range. So I have been spending my time working, building, and modifying the bike for longer distance. I am watching a couple buses closely, and hopefully be able to snap one up in the next couple weeks, so I can start building the new adventure-mobile. I am pretty excited and anxious to get my mobility back – the thing most Americans are missing. You don’t really know what this facet means to you till you lose it, and man it hurts.
