3. Where do you find a bus?
It was difficult to find a bus in California. There are laws that prohibit the reselling of these vehicles which make them very expensive to acquire. We decided to search far and wide for a bus, and finally came across a website, Western Bus Sales based in Boring, Oregon.
On their site there was a bus that seemed to fit all our requirements: Diesel (for converting to veggie/biodiesel) engine, 4oft. long, low mileage, reasonably priced.
We contacted Donna at Western Bus Sales, if we came out to Oregon she would make us a deal. So we left California and within a day we had a used bus in our possesion.
