So I did it. I bought a bus. I think it's just the right size, not too big or too small. We'll see once I get the seats out and start designing the inside. My son took it to a shop and had a few things worked on so it will pass inspection. He drove it down last weekend and it's parked and ready to be gutted. I also finally found insurance for it so I'm feeling good about that. Now that the weather is nice and warm I can start sweating my ass off in this thing. Which brings me to another dilemma. Air conditioning. A must in Texas. I'm just not sure how to pull it off. The bus won't be connected to a power source when it's parked so I was thinking maybe a solar powered window unt. It's expensive and I'm not sure that's the best solution. So I'll keep thinking on it. My goal is to have the bus ready to go by late September.
