What started with admiration for my fam, Alan, and his bus turned in to my own adventure. I was recently visiting him and my other long-term chosen family that it really clicked:
I am a researcher, so when I go down a rabbit hole I dive deeeeeeepp. I've created spreadsheets of available buses with their details, RV appliances, and so much more. As I checked buses out, I noted what I liked and didn't like.
I found that many of the buses I liked sold very quickly. One white bus was from a church with the church's name on the side. As much as I would love the irony of converting a church bus and calling it Grace or Saving Grace with this queerdo spreading the good word of inclusivity and justice, it was not to be. By which I mean, I was going to check it out and they just stopped responding and pulled the FB marketplace ad.
So, many unlocked treasures to dream about. But I reminded myself (and was reminded by others) to be patient. For now, I'll keep admiring and inquiring...
