I have reached my destination.
It was three harrowing days and 540 miles.
First day was the scariest. 270 miles to a Walmart. It totally wore me out. I bought a squeegee like they have at gas stations. I also bought a gallon of bug removing window wash. I cleaned the bugs off of my windshield. I enjoyed walking to the Chinese Buffet. I got a little of everything. I have no idea of what the stuff was. It did taste good. I ate half of it.
Second day was a little easier in terms of being somewhat more comfortable driving this beasty bus. However, my batteries were dead. I had to ask someone to give me a jump. While driving the bus, I could do nothing but keep my eyes on the road and try to keep the bus in my lane. I could not even take my eyes off the road to pour some tea out of my thermos. I drove only 120 miles. I stayed at an RV park where I had electricity. I put my battery charger on. I reheated the other half of my Chinese food in my microwave. The RV park was only $25 for the night. I parked my bus next to two fancy expensive big RVs. I took a picture. I will post it soon.
Third day was 140 miles to reach my destination. I am staying on my friend of 20 years amongst several buildings that I helped build. I am parked under two giant trees. There is shade all day long. I spent an hour leveling the bus with boards. I have a thirty amp electrical feed. There is a water feed with which I can fill my gallon jugs. I have access to a toilet. I will install a shower enclosure in one of the buildings.
This place where I am is beautiful. It is 15 acres. There are many fruit trees, a greenhouse with hundreds of trays of vegetables. There are also outside plots of vegetables. There is a running stream.
My deal is to mow the lawn with a zero turn mower and do weed eating. That gets me electricity and bathroom.
I will take some pics and post them.
The best part of being here is that I do not have to drive this bus for a long while.
