Like I said, a literal bus. It was a type of city bus. Awesome shape.
We've been talking about purchasing one of these for a long time now. After the last trip to the mountains a few weeks ago, we knew we could in no way shape or form make the trip to Ohio in our current van and still be of sound mind and body when done. So, started looking at rentals. Umm, sticker shock. Dealers...even more of a sticker shock. Sorry, but very, very limited budget. So, Craigslist and Ebay it was. We've purchased 2 vans off of ebay in the past so not worried. This time, it was Craigslist that pulled through. Pleased with the deal and even more with the rv. Plenty of storage for us to take things. Last trip I wouldn't let Yana take any hair dryer or anything. LOL. This time I told her she can take what she wants. She's thrilled as any teenage girl would be. Everyone will have their own compartment under the bus. Love it! Kids can play cards, watch tv, etc.
We may do a practice run this weekend. Maybe to a local lake so Warren can get more of a feel for the bus. He's flown planes before and driven big tractors and things in the past so this will be fine. We all can barely stand the wait. I'm sure the kids will be packing as soon as they see it. Next, I have to double check w/ the campgrounds about parking it. See, we're not camping in it. This is mainly for driving and storage and cooking and such. We've rented two cabins and that's where we'll sleep.
Hoping this vehicle will last years to come and we'll have some great memories together. Kids are already repeating lines from the movie RV. Need to get going here. Making tons of appointments for people. So much to tell. I think next post will have to be about what all is going on around here. Posts forthcoming. Today has been spent trying to catch up on things needing to be done around here. I'm getting there....slowly.
