I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

Music is awesome while driving a VW, but turn it down on occasion to listen to your bus.

My mom was doing some cleaning and found pictures from 2003 when I was living in my bus, being a slacker and working at subway where I got a free 6 inch sub every day I worked, which made grocery bills less, and the beer fund more!
the red bus is mine, the green bus was a friend I made one day at work when I asked if he needed a free place to park his bus for the weekend, which was very hard to do in a resort town without the cops knocking on your door at 2:30 am.
I found my parking place at the dead end of a road on top of a mountain in Old Forge NY. the remains of a cabin are off to the left of my parking place. it burned to the ground one winter when the roads where bad enough the trucks could not reach it. so I took over the place untill it got too cold.

Nice bus! I always wanted to do that but I had kids too early and the ex and current wife wont do it, so I camp as much as possible!! I did get the ex to live in it for a week with me while moving back from Montana. Even with the break downs, I loved it!! Here are a few.

Well a funny thing happened, I met a girl!
She was visiting the Adirondacks for a few weeks doing hospice care for a woman that grew up in the ADKS but moved to Colorado. She walked into my life one day while i was managing the rental dept for a canoe and kayak company. she wanted to rent a boat, but did not have a credit card for a damage deposit. So i recommended she come back after 6 when we closed and i would take her out on the river for a sunset kayak paddle. I spent 3 days showing her around the ADKs and without even a kiss, she packed up and flew back to Colorado. I was in love, quit my job, sold the bus, my snowmobile and my Chevy Blazer, I packed my life into rubbermaid totes. and headed west in my Dodge pick-up.
We now have 2 kids and will be celebrating 7 years together this year.
I miss the bus, but it was a good trade off.

I had to laugh at the "totes" reference...
A similar thing happened to me once Jason. I met a girl and fell in love too. Ended up selling almost everything I owned and packed the rest in totes and my bus and moved. Small world eh?
