Hi all, I've been reading the forum for a few weeks and my account got approved today so I figured I'd introduce myself. My wife and I are full-time RVers in our 30s, though we are more stationary for my wife's job and tend to stay in one place for extended periods. Currently, we're in Flagstaff, AZ.

We've spent the last year in a travel trailer and recently decided to try out the bus thing after we got the bug from a friend's bus. As of earlier this week we are the owners of a 1962 4106 and are already enjoying the headaches that come with bus ownership! We've been taking advantage of all the amazing knowledge you guys have already and hopefully one day I'll know enough to be able to contribute something as well. In the meantime, I'm just learning so thanks in advance for all the info you've already shared! I look forward to getting to know you all.

Trust us your hooked! It's not a life threatening disease, but you have it. It's called busnutidous.
Welcome and feel free to jump in anytime! (you may have useful ideas or knowledge in an area not many of us do!)

Flag is nice this time of the year, be sure and check out Sedonna (sp) and Jerome while you are in the area, the Little Grand Canyon on AZ 89 North is pretty spectacular too.

You are not alone! We are also in our 30's, and bought a 1958 4104 in March. We are currently in Beaumont, TX. I travel nationwide for my work (construction). We are also in progress towards remodeling(read completely redoing) our bus, which is challenging considering us, and 3 rather large dogs are living in it also. Welcome to the site, lots and lots of knowledge here. Enjoy!
