As much as we love her, We’re selling the bus.

That’s right. We’re selling the bus, but not because we’re going to stop traveling! We’re converting a van this winter so we can continue to travel full time. But to do that we have to sell the bus first! We’ve poured so much into Diane Ourbus and its going to hurt to see her go, but we know whoever buys her will love her!
