Well back to the muffler shop she went on Wednsday. The last part of old exhaust finally blew off on the way back from Lincoln a couple weeks ago. Man a straight pipe 345 V8 sure is loud. Anyways she's already to go once I retighten some of the pannels that loosened up on the long trip.

When I was in middle school I rode an IH/Bluebird to school. One day the driver was running a little late and hit some speed bumps a little hard. After the last bump we heard a thud and then the bus sounded like a Harley. When the we pulled into the school everybody was looking at us. Too bad they had to fix it. The muffler fell off after that last bump.

is your bus still parked in the same spot next to the pole building?

I didn't remember the x-way being that close.

that fence being there isn't just good for your skoolie, it's also good for the guy in the truck. You're skoolie isn't nearly as soft as that fence.

Yes its the same place, the road you had to drive down is not near the highway but the building that I park it at is. When you were here you parked your bus in the parkinglot right along the highway.

I know what you mean about Nebraska. Lots of things get blown off the highway including trucks. A few months ago when we visited some family in NE we got caught in a nice dust storm near Sterling CO.
