Introducing 10 tonne Betty

26 Jan

Yes we bought a bus. She is an old school bus converted to a motorhome and is the newest member of our family.

We are looking forward to lots of adventures. In fact they have already begun as Doug had to drive her home all the way from NSW in a record breaking heatwave without air conditioning.  About 1700kms of hard work and discomfort for both of them (and Ryan who went along for the trip), but I think they became well acquainted during that and are possibly even slowly forming a firm friendship. I love her already.

The children likewise are enjoying getting to know her.

Even Sam seems to like her even though they had a little disagreement on the first day. He fell out, the step being a little higher that he thought and his two footed jump down to the gutter went awry.

I can’t wait to hit the road.

    I love it ez, it was nice to see the shot of you with all 5 kids. It’s the perfect set up for you guys. Poor little Sam, what’s with Sams and mobile home steps, remember our Sams leg.

    That is so cool!!! Hope you have lots of great fun and adventures in Betty!

    A fun project could be figuring out what colour(s) to paint her.

    All the best to you guys in 2013.

      Thanks :) I can’t wait to share them. A campervan would be heaps easier…but we figured 7 of us would live more comfortably in a bus. I wonder if I will get the courage to get my MR license and drive it!! EEeeeek!
