The July issue of Bus Conversion Magazine is now available to view and/or download from our website at: www.BusConversions.com/magazine.html.  
To view the Table of Contents, hover your mouse over the cover and you will be able to view what is in this issue.

In this issue we feature an article by Jim Bingham and Paula Giddings titled Our New Life.  It is about a couple that met each other and he had a 1978 Silver Eagle bus and she had two cats and a horse.  She knew nothing about bus conversions but discovered Jim’s bus came from the US Government Hanford Nuclear Site and Jim says, no it does not glow in the dark.  Over time she became to love the bus and they discussed how the bus has transformed their life.  She stated (as we all know) that “The view from a bus is breathtaking”, even better than the over the road trucks she has ridden in.  To see a photo of this beautiful Silver Eagle and read the first part of their article, click here…

Becky Lawry wrote a second article about Workamping (their first Workamping article was in the November 2012 issue) about their experience working in return for a place to park their bus and sometimes even receive free hookups.  They discuss the qualifications you need, where to find workamping jobs, how to apply, and the fun you can have working and vacationing in different places.  Workamping positions are also available in some national parks which will allow you to see and learn about the park you will be working in for the season. To see a photo of a beautiful lake and read the first part of their article, click here…

The third article in this issue is by Roger Lehet, the world famous wood stove builder that lives in Vashon, WA.  He has designed several wood burning stoves that will heat your bus up very efficiently. He also has designed other products that generate light and electricity from the same stove that you can cook on.  Read his article titled Hello Bus Nuts where he discusses living off the grid. He covers solar panels and thermal electric generation so you can either live off the grid or lower your power bill or run your generator much less so you will live in a quieter environment. To read the first part of Roger’s article, click here…
