    Default DH found a Van for the Move/Business

    We were so happy and relieved that DH found an excellent deal on a 2002 Frightliner Sprinter cargo van(the middle size) yesterday. They are deisel and get about 28 miles to the gallon. DH will be doing the vegetable oil conversion in this van, as well as our deisel car. The car project is put on hold until he comes back here or I move out there. For now though he will be doing the conversion on the van when he gets out to Denver. This van will be for hauling his tools, clothing and camp stuff. He will be parking it at a campsite and sleeping comfortably in it as well. He is also bringing his motorcycle for smaller commutes around town and to and from work. If we decide to stay here, he will move back with the van and start his business here. We are both very thankful he found such a great van for a great price! DH was able to pay cash, which then gives him free reign to do the vegetable oil conversion.

    Since DH doesn't have enough time to do the conversion on my car, to save on deisel, I will be walking to work three days a week. (2 miles each way). That will help me get these extra pounds off hopefully, as well.

    Sounds like finding the van was meant to be Michele. Your husband's plans to camp while he is in Denver sound like fun, too! You two are getting all the details thought out and proceeding.

    The car conversion to vegetable oil intrigues me so much -- Please keep us posted on how you like it once it is done.

    That's GREAT! I hope his van works out wonderfully for yall!

    Do you have a bicycle? It would be faster than walking to work if you were in a pinch
