A cabin in the bus

I loathed riding the school bus in high school, all the way up until I graduated. Seventeen-year-old me watched everyone in my grade pass me by in their own cars. But the bus Candra and I discovered in the North Carolina foothills is cool from the back to the front.

It was our first time using Airbnb and weren't sure what to expect. We also didn't expect snow. Expect the unexpected while riding in a magic school bus. The inside of the school bus has been completely gutted and converted into a cabin, equipped with a bed, couch, television with surround sound, and a coffee maker (hallelujah). 

The coffee maker, unexpectedly, was great for two things: coffee, obviously, but also hot dogs. See, Candra and I couldn't keep a fire going. So she got the brilliant idea to boil the hot dogs in the coffee pot. I was content with eating blueberry muffins and chips, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't curious. It worked.

Our plan was to take photos of the night sky but it was foiled by rain. It's too bad, too, because the light pollution was nearly nonexistent and we had an open field to set our tripods in. We ended up watching movies in the cozy bus. At least the snow melted before we had to leave.
