Ouch!!!  A couple if y'all are hitting the poor guy in his ding ding!  I say walk away from it for a while then get back at it.  I experienced the same thing when I bought my first rent house and I wanted to quit.  It took 1.5 years to completely gut it including stripping the floors, completely rewiring, all new plumbing, Sheetrock and seemingly on and on.  The only interior that remained was the studs in the entire house.  Halfway through I went outside and seriously quesion why I would take on a project like that with no help at all.  I was broken down and ready to quit.  After leaving it alone for a while I picked my arse up off the ground and told myself "one nail at a time".  

 Ow fir the funny part.  My real motivation came in a different form.  My mother in law was going to rent it from us when it was completed.  She ended her lease for the time I told her I would be done.  Well I missed the deadline and she had to move in with us until I completed the house.  The moral is there ain't no motivation like having your mother in law living with you.  

OP. I say walk away amd get a fresh start in thr morning.  The only way through is to bull your way through it!!!

Well, you know, a lot of states, Oklahoma included, won't let you buy your own casket from an online retailer. . you have to purchase it from a licensed funeral home. . .now why do you think that is?Huh

Actually, I joke about the whole thing, but I'm glad we convinced Larry's dad to make the arrangements now, as he is all about saving money (hence the actual question about whether we could haul their caskets in our own vehicles!?!), which relieves us of the conflict between being "cheap" and spending excess amounts of money on something that will never been seen again.  I mean. . . you pay a bunch of money for a wedding dress, and maybe your daughter could wear it some day, but you know, I'm just not sure I want to "wear" someone elses'. . . well, you get my drift, ha ha.

We did find a guy that was extremely reasonable, and then down the road, a really honest monument store, and as it was, the funeral director is the son of a pastor that DeWayne used to know, so that was kind of neat too. . considering how big OKC is, that was a nice surprise!

So, Brian, what do you think now?  Surely you wouldn't consider EVER selling your bus, as then you'd miss the companionship of lots of REALLY WIERD people like us!!!!!  Isn't that alone worth the effort?!?!?!?  tee hee, Christy Hicks

Hello all, belfert   Grin
Your Bus is all you make of it. Some take 10 years to complete it but enjoy the ride and some enjoy the ride and take 10 years to complete it. Your Bus is your Bus! You make it your own with its own personality. Don't give up now! GET YOUR BUS TO THE NEXT RALLY. All the Best to you sir Grin

  The large cago bays on an intercity bus do offer some odd possibilities, but thats one I hadnt thought of.

I think I pointed something like that out several years ago, I want to be buried in my bus, it's got 3 handles on the bays on each side, now all I need are 6 really strong pallbearers.
