I think it would make an awesome tow vehicle / camper, for that matter.

Only quoting myself, because the same people selling the bus are also trying to give away cats.

I have already withdrawn cash to buy the bus. Now is purely a logistics problem of finding someone to go down to GA with me.

So, just in case anyone here ever gets to thinking "well, that's it. I am pretty much the biggest nerd in the world," wrong.

Bah. Anyone can "plan". I got about 60% of a Tiger tank replica done before giving up. It's still in my garage taking up space.

Lost almost everything in the last computer crash. I may have some stuff buried someplace, I'd have to check. It's been sitting there for 10 years now. I don't have the heart to destroy it, after all the work that went into it.

Found a really old one. Website was called "Leete's Folly"

That's not nerdy at all. It's not useful, but it's not nerdy.

I bet he gets laid in it.

I used to get email from all over the world. People asking me how to do things, asking for updates, even wanting to buy the damn thing.

Yeah, it's kind of freaky, but the Internet is Forever.

For me it was a maddening exercise that was made unnecessary by the need to buy a second Megasquirt for the Cobra and the realization that sometimes it just makes more sense to hire people who are smarter than you.
