How many of us Bus Nuts are there?
« on: August 19, 2011, 08:11:37 PM »
On the "News" bar at the top of some www.busconversions.com pages, it says:

"1,776 Members as of April 6, 2008."

On other pages, it states: "500 Members as of May 5th, 2006."

then if you click on the "Members" link, you find out that we are: "3134 total members."

Awesome!

I figure that there are some who signed up to this great board, asked a question or two, and have never been back. Maybe a few others have graduated to the world beyond, and forgot to tell us. A few people, because of current fuel prices and bus maintenance costs, have sold their bus, and gone back to tent camping. Maybe even others have put their bus project on standby, but will be back sooner or later.

So of the 3,134 current forum members, how many have actually shown signs of life during the last 12 months?
