To go get our bus!
Everything is in place, insurance is in hand, train ticket is bought and I am leaving Montreal tomorrow evening for Bathurst, NB and will be arriving there on Thursday morning. I am getting picked up at the train station and we will immediately get the transfer done and then the bus will officially be ours. After that, I *just* have to drive the nearly 900KM back home with it!
I am so excited and scared at the same time. I mean, we have been wanting this for so long and now the time is here. Now comes the reality or the work involved making it into a livable space. So many ideas and so many things to learn. Flooring, carpentry, designing, plumbing, electricity. Lots of searching for good deals etc…
The flood of feelings are overwhelming and it actually makes me feel a bit sick to my stomach… but it is so exciting at the same time.
We are going to try to make the bus as self-sufficient as we can while trying to keep the cost as low as we can which I think will be a bit hard when you look at the prices of solar panels and a compostable toilet etc. How I wish I had bought some things before when I saw them in local ads but the dream seemed so unattainable still I didn’t jump at the opportunities. If you want to help us out though, we have bus fund and any money donated will go right into the bus and into our dreams.
Wish me luck and check out my Instagram if you have it as I will be posting updates to there 🙂
