Will tried out the driver seat of the bus as a toddler, but because Tom's parents don't store it at their house, the kids never spent any significant time in it until last weekend. Everything about the motor home fascinated them...and their friends...and our friends...and the neighbors...and everyone I talked about it with, so I decided to share a virtual tour here on the blog.
|Parked and open for visitors!|
|A view of the driver and navigator seats from the living/dining room.|
(Those are sunshades are hiding the windshield to keep the bus cool.)
|The dining room. The table folds out to twice that |
size and the two chairs are remarkably comfortable.
|The living room. The couch folds out into a surprisingly|
comfortable (noticing a trend here?) full-sized bed on
which both Will and Hallie slept for two nights in a row.
|One side of the kitchen - sink, stove, oven, and storage.|
|The other side of the kitchen - refrigerator, storage, and |
old-fashioned (as in pre-Pottery Barn) "command center".
|The bedroom. Like the one in the living room, this couch folds out |
into a cozy but doable-for-two bed. (In the background you'll see Hallie
giving friends Grace and Phin a tour of the captivating bathroom.)
|The other side of the bedroom, complete with a |
closet and a television that still plays VHS tapes.
|And the moment you've all (Hallie has) been waiting|
for...the bathroom. (The shower is off to the left.)
|Last but not least and just for fun, the "control |
panel". On/Off, Hot/Cold, and a tape deck.
I have quite a few bullet points left on my Texas Bucket List, and I have now decided that the best and most fun way to cross some of these bullet points off my list is to climb aboard a motor home and hit the open road. Who's with me?
You can see my full - but ever-growing - Texas Bucket List here. Feel free to let me know what I'm missing!
