First, a little background:
A few weeks ago our Bible Study folks were talking about helping out a family that had outgrown their mini-van. Bryan and I got to thinking about our van and how we've been looking at buses for years! With our children getting older, and our hope to grow our family, a more spacious ride would have it's advantages.
We found a bus we liked on ebay. Location: Melbourne, Florida. Why not? What better place to go in December than Florida? Especially when a snowstorm was heading to Indiana.
A few days later, we were on the road. Due to our over-estimating the Saturday hours of credit unions in South Carolina, we ended up needing to stay over in Melbourne for an extra day. Tough gig!
Along the way we were able to squeeze in super-quick visits with friends, old and new (more on that later), and my wonderful aunt and uncle in North Carolina. We arrived at home, worn-out but happy, with a cool, new ride!
