Just another update 

So, I had a Reddit post go somewhat viral.  35k upvotes and made the front page.  Other than that, I've been working on a little bit of bus stuff and some music, but my day job is keeping me busy.

I did manage one fun project- I needed some specific hardware for the curtain rods in the bus, but I'm not sure whether it actually exists.  So I fired up Blender, loaded the 3D printer with some gold silk PLA, and woke up to the parts I needed ready to install.  No matter how many times I do this, it's still…

Thus ends the off season 

Realized I haven't posted in way too long.

Georgia was great.  Spent several weeks working on the bus at Cobbtown Acres- A DIY workshop and grounds for a couple dozen of us all working on our skoolie projects.  I met some amazing people who have become surprisingly near and dear to my heart in such a short time- Check out BuzuAzul, Escahpay, and Daddamantium on Insta.  Finished the subfloor and laminate flooring, built my bed, kitchen counters, got solar hooked up, mounted storage bins and water tanks…

Work Begins 

So, I've finally begun ripping the seats out of the bus.  What a delight that is....  I've got all summer and fall to do this build, so I'm pacing myself.  Next couple months should look something like this-

June- Remove seats, flashers, stop sign, and paint with primer, so I can do the title/registration stuff to get it classified as an RV. 

July- Floor, Rough framing for walls and furniture, Install camera system. Run wiring for 12v and 120v circuits. Order tanks, toilet, and other plumbing stuff.
