Paul better known as “stateofmind” on the TSP Forum has had a huge hit with his thread entitled “Bug Out Bus“, which chronicles his multi-year journey of the transformation of a diesel powered Blue Bird School Bus into one hell of a kick ass RV and BOV.
Paul joins us today to discuss a variety of things, such as why he chose to customize a school bus vs. buying an RV. How much work is required for a project like this and how making it a hobby and taking your time will be a huge help in getting it the way you want it in the end.
He also tells us what types of vehicles are good for projects like this based on what the builder is trying to achieve. How to deal with power requirements including solar power installation and the role of a generator in this type of set up. We also cover heating with a wood stove and how to do it safely but for operation and stowage during transport. Of course he gives you some good ideas for where to find a project vehicle to start with. This was a fun show and I think you guys will really enjoy it.
