bus living

I found this wonderful picture of school-bus living recently and it made me a little nostalgic. We lived in a converted school bus like this for a few years while we built our current home.  We had a full kitchen with a mini fridge right next to the steering wheel, a plywood floor, and a rickety old wood-stove whose pipe led out one of the windows. Living in a small (and free) structure allowed us to spend the majority of our time and money on our building project. The whole experience seems kind-of crazy now, but it happened!
and here is a journal page from those days:

What a beautiful bus! I'm sure I have some pictures of your bus somewhere... That was before the days of digital photography, but I must have prints!
