This is our 1969 Ford 700 as it looked the day we drove it home. My wife and I have always wanted to do a bus conversion, we found this one on its way to the wrecking yard. With tabs current and the bus in good general working order, it would have been a shame to see it go to the bone yard. I matched the auto wreckers offer of \$150.00 and drove it home that same day. It may not be an MCI Motor Coach, but we are happy to have it. We expect this to be both an engaging project and a useful motor home. Custom building it to our specific wants and needs is half the fun!  Then there is the consideration of picking the right tool for the job, would you take your \$300,000 motor coach out onto the beach, on an access road along a whitewater river, or to a trailhead?  A schoolie will go anywhere! I have no beef with the RV park scene, I've been there. We just have some slightly more adventurous destinations in mind! J

We invite you to watch over our shoulders and join us for the ride. Please feel free to weigh in with any comments or questions.

Hey, You've gotta try this! I love my internet postage! This is a well though out, quality program! One click of a desktop icon and you are online with Stamps.com ready to send off your monthly bills. Use the handy address book included in the program or go right from tools menu of your Microsoft Word program. I print my postage right on my envelopes, shipping labels or a sheet of stamps. I also have the option of selecting the method of shipment, no more wasting a full postage on a post card that can go for less. Use a digital scale and send off parcels and flats right from home. Never run out of stamps, don't ever dig for change again at the stamp machine and kiss the lines goodbye at the post office, OH Yeah, I like this :o)
