Evan Snell  PORTLAND, OR
My name is Evan, I have been been working the entertainment industry for many years and spend most of my time away from home. I bought a 1972 Crown school bus to live in while working on the road and otherwise. My Fiancé will be quitting her day job to live on the bus and travel with me for work, she is a Metalsmith jewelry maker and will be taking on her jewelry business full time on board the bus.
I have been offered a full time job on the east coast and my plan for restoring this bus has been shortened quite a bit, I don't have enough credit and have not been able to get a loan.
This is a real chance to get our feet under us and my fiancé's chance to take her business on full time.
Please help us achieve our goal.

I'm getting on the road next week, weather permitting.
Last week we installed the ceiling panels, built a hearth for the wood stove, repaired the wiring in the dash and fuse panel, replaced all the belts on the engine, found a rare replacement for the E-stop lever, and set up insurance for the bus.
This week we are building a tow package to drag the pickup behind the bus, installing the wood stove, getting new rear tires, and finishing on the repairs to the air system.
We plan to do a shakedown run to Olympia WA. and back to Portland this weekend to make sure we are ready to drive to Pennsylvania.
Thank you all who have helped us along the way on this project, without our Family and Friends this would not have been possible.

I'll be driving east on 84 to SLC and east to Wilkes Barre PA. on I-80 let me know if your on the route and we will blast the air horn as we roll past or stop for a visit if the snow isn't too deep.

Demolition of the old interior is complete and I've started building the bedroom.
