The adventure begins...

Sometimes I have some quite silly ideas. This, I tend to think, was not one of them. This was possibly the best idea I think I've ever had. The idea was simple: to buy a bus, and spend a few months transforming into a movable home to last me the next ten (or more) years. 

I'm extremely glad to say that this is no longer just an idea. It is happening. Last week, I stumbled upon the perfect base vehicle on eBay: a 1985 Leyland Tiger 53-seater bus, that I can drive on a car licence! Within 24 hours, I'd bought it. Having not seen the thing, or had anyone look over it for me, I was a little nervous, but it sounded too good to let pass, so in a moment of impulse I clicked the buy button. Man, was that a exciting moment! And here she is...

All I need to do now is find somewhere to store it, raise enough money to convert it, get it delivered/go and pick it up, design and plan it, buy all the tools and materials I'll need, and then set about the gruelling work of stripping it out and building it back up again. Wish me luck....

I will try and document as much of it on this website, and post blog updates when there is something news-worthy to share. I'll also be looking for some help down the line, but more about that later.
