I want to direct those of you who aspire to a more mobile lifestyle to the blog of Sean Welsh and Louise Horner, who have been full-timing it in their Neoplan Spaceliner bus for the last several years.
You can read all about them at http://ourodyssey.us/
Sean and Louise worked the hurricane relief circuit in New Oleans and wound up doing some flood relief work up on the East Coast soon thereafter. Following that they meandered down into the Copper Canyon region of Mexico where their bus was first loaded onto a railroad car and then later loaded onto a ferry for the ride over to Baja. Currently they are in the Pacific Northwest having some work done.
They are motorcyclists (Odyssey has been reconfigured to carry two motorcycles internally) and enjoy spending their leisure time hangin' on Mexican beaches, so right there they are fine people as far as I am concerned.
A word about their bus - Odyssey is a very rare Neoplan Spaceliner. Neoplan is a German manufacturer that once had an assembly plant in Colorado. Most of the Neoplan production in the USA was for more conventional buses but the Spaceliner is a high powered over-the-road bus meant to be a deluxe first-class bus for German service. It's not quite a double-decker so think more in terms of the Spaceliner as being more of a deck and 3/4's. Typical layouts of the Spaceliners had the driver and a stewardess in a compartment in the low front of the bus and the passengers were upstairs. In Sean's converted Spaceliner the front window glass offers an unobstructed view because the driver's compartment is sealed off and directly below the living space.
