I fixed her up as best I could with my meager funds and the help of a few friends and made the long trek back to my hometown. She drove like a champ (only 85,000 miles to her name). Sure her tailpipe fell off and her window wipers came apart during a rain storm, but she made it, and so did I.

So, here I am now with my two beautiful kids living in my mom's driveway in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere in a motor home.
Then I installed a custom built touch screen PC that I built out of an old Kiosk computer, and of course it's running Ubuntu because Linux is freakin' amazing. It's not only my car audio system/media player, it's my TV, backup camera monitor, personal computer (that I'm using right now to write this blog post), and someday it will be my navigational computer, after I buy a GPS and program it.
Next, I'm going to finish my floor and paint the outside. It has a lot more features that I haven't shown yet, but I'll post about those when I'm further along in the project.
For now though it is livable and my kids and I are enjoying having a tiny air conditioned home for the summer, and it keeps getting better and better every day as we work on it together.
