Yeah I thought we were going to "Sunny Florida." It's been raining since the moment we got into the state, about a month ago!

It's been a long time since I've posted on here! Since March, Haulin' Oats has been parked at home in North Carolina while we did some repairs, upgrades, and recouped funds. After a few months of work we're ready to head back out on the road again after this weekend. I just looked for the photos I have of our amazing folding passenger seat, but I guess I haven't put them into the computer yet. Our next adventure is a stop at the Wickerman festival in PA on June 9th (it's a mini- Burning Man), and then we've procured a paid workamping job for the summer in California at Pillsbury Lake. There we'll stay until October, then head back up to Drayton, ND, for the sugar beet harvest. Immediately after that is the peak season at Amazon's shipping facility. Come Christmas I do believe we'll have enough money to go anywhere we want next year!

Oh, also, Rosie the goat is pregnant. She's due in July, and I'll have all the goat's milk I could ever wish for. Dan won't drink it; he says he feels uncomfortable about it because he's friends with the goat. Anybody want a baby goat?!?!

Rosie had her babies today!

They don't have names yet. The tan one is a BIG boy and the black one is a TEENY girl.

Awwwww
Hows Rosy doin? Our animal family continues to grow, as well.
We actually just rescued a dog from out at John's property.


Lots of folks have asked about your tanks lately- could you post some pics?

Ok here are finally some pictures of our passenger seat. Juno is a lovely model.


It sits over the exit steps.

Then it folds up out of the way beside the engine doghouse.






The base on it is sheet metal built into a box.




And the bottom of the seat is a frame the allows it to slide left and right and forward and backward so we can tuck it into the corner. It came with the part. Got the seat and the frame and the seat belt assembly from a pull-a-part from a Mazda MPV minivan for twenty bucks. The seat comes with the buckle built in, and also a pull-out cupholder!



My dad welded those two legs onto the frame and attached them to a piano hinge on the box. Then when it swings down those legs made of square steel tubing fit down over threaded bolts that are built into an anchoring frame.





The seatbelt is anchored to a piece of angle iron that is bolted to the bus frame.








It's very convenient when you have a bus if you also have a father who is a mechanical engineer. He's a genius. I told him everybody's gonna want one of these!

Mighty clever use of that space! Maybe the best I have seen for a co-pilots seat. Congrats on a great job!
