Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

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.

At one time we had a nice gallery to place photos like this in?

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?
