Nelson’s son, Coley, suffered a stroke four years ago. It took three years of constant care for Coley to become medically stable, and in that time Nelson left his full-time job to be Coley’s full-time caretaker. The two started going up and down the coast for shorter trips that soon became longer ones.
Eventually Nelson found his 40 Ft. Blue Bird bus and spent 5 weeks converting it into a home for the two of them. Nelson has loved the community that comes along with bus life, and taking his son to see what the world has to offer!

I like the “Sea Change” name.
The sun shade is a great idea!
It’s so cool that he added a vintage couch to the build.
