The Bigote Bus
The "Bigote Bus" took roughly four months to build. It's a Ford Transit 250 High Roof that had 20K miles on it that I bought in September. I spent October-December insulating it and began framing the inside. After the new year I was averaging 8 hours a day on it doing the finish work on the inside of the van. I made my drop dead stop time on the van as the end of February and was able to move into it the last week of February. There's still some work that needs to be done, but for now it's livable and awesome.
Just some of Dan's trim work
I was inspired to adopt a minimalist lifestyle because I found myself bogged down by external stressors, Material things, and wanted to challenge myself. The van to me and the van life associated with that was a beacon of independence and frugality. I studied other builds and read blogs for about 8 months before I finally bought my van and did my build.
Looks to missing a PussFoot Sticker

Home DropZone is Skydive San Diego. Right now I'm living in it going between Skydive San Diego, the beaches of Del Mar, Cardiff, Encinitas and the occasional trip out to Perris for a hot air balloon jump.
