Good News, Bad News, a Scamp, or a Bus

Well, first off it’s been way to long and don’t forget about the video at the end of the article. We’ve wondered how you’re doing? What you’re doing? What’s happening in your life?

Ours has been busy. In Minnesota, we are just finishing what we call, ‘Mud Season’. It’s an interesting time where everything melts and stays on top while the under soil still melts. Lot’s of mud. Fun times.

Elissa and I have just finished some deep talking. Initially, when we decided to eventually go on the road we thought we would only need a small trailer. We choose a trailer rather than a motorhome because we wanted mobility. We thought it’d be nice to be able to park the home and still be able to take the tow vehicle somewhere and it would also eliminate the need to tow a small car while still driving a motorhome. The whole thing seemed like a great idea. Until…..

We toured a Scamp and almost bought it.

In the end, the first one was to much money. The second one we found on Craigslist, and it was more affordable. The thing that stopped us was:

A. our van needed a new radiator. This costs a lot of money and took our cushion down quite a bit.

B. and this brings about the good news. The good news is that we had a great talk. We chatted about what our current needs were as we saw them. If we are going to live full time in something we want more then 16 feet plus the van.

Now, this doesn’t mean we’re going out and getting a 40-foot land yacht. We have, however, decided to get a bus and make it the way we want. We’ve looked at a lot of RV’s, trailers, and motorhomes and all of them are very cool. The thing is none of them are what we want, so we’ve decided to throw caution to the wind and just get a medium-sized bus then make it our own little tiny home.

We will keep you informed about our process of getting one, gutting it, and building it back again. It will be a blast and we hope you enjoy it as well.

All our best

The Martys
