Re: New Age Travellers documentary

Very interesting! There's a big movement happening here in the USA, too. People are converting their cars, vans, buses, trucks, horsetrailers...anything on wheels into homes on wheels.

Fantastic videos, Dusty! I can't even imagine living in such a beautiful place! The state of Wisconsin where I live here in the USA is known for it's snowy winters and we have plenty of fantastic ski resorts throughout the state. In fact, Tyrol Basin in Mt Horeb about an hour southeast of me is one...

Re: ezrablu - 1991 Bluebird of Happiness

In the upper left side you can see the carpeted area that my son built for my dog Kitty to sit while going down the road. She'll have a great window seat so her tongue can flap in the wind (the drivers seat is missing but goes right beside that seat belt of course): http://i49.tinypic.com/111np1j.jpg

Re: ezrablu - 1991 Bluebird of Happiness

Here I'm standing at the back of the bus looking forward (sorry about all the "stuff" laying around and the ceiling still hanging in the way): http://i50.tinypic.com/vovjlu.jpg Speaking of ceiling...I'm using 4x8 sheets of plywood called Honey Pine. It's an easy, fast way for me to get a ceiling for...

Another view standing just at the top of the steps beside the drivers seat looking toward the back of the bus. You can see the two walls w/windows:

Re: ezrablu - 1991 Bluebird of Happiness

We laid linoleum down in the drivers area too since it's going to be the "foyer" :lol: Plus he trimmed out some places with carpet (can see some on right side of photo with bag laying on it)
