Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

I see your point. Even after 2 trips of size I'm still feeling out the name thing. After all the sanding I wanted to name it something else completely but we won't go there. LOL

Lawrence Welk, that can go back a long ways I have a feeling cloud nine is going to stick, its a good name.

There were many laughs during this song, that night on the Lawrence Welk show.

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Lawrence Welk is a scary memory from the past as my parents and some of my siblings loved the show. I was a Mac Gyver, A Team fan and just have never been able to do the corny humor and the singing. I pity the foo who has to put themselves through Lawrence Welk.

Smitty I'll check a few local retailers I think your on the right track with the farm supply stores they always surprise me for pricing...

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

That tank looks nice but I don't see anything on it about being for drinking water. 50gln for that much money, if you're a touch handy you might see about 55gln barrels from soft drink places (think Coke dist places have them) where you can usually get them for $10, just add your own holes where you need the plumbing.

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Tank looks good to me. I like how it is flat sided. Seems like it would be easier to mount. And the strap indentations would help with that too I would think.

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

Hey Madpsalmer;
I'm down in McMinnville with a skoolie and a bushel of kids. We should get together sometime. I am working on a woodstove installation. Bring your tribe down for dinner.

For sure, that's awesome. Drop me an e-mail and we'll exchange the necessary info. I would love to see your rig and see your progress on the wood stove piece.

Hey thanks man. Not getting hitched till October tho. I have to finish my next cross country tour first. But we are planning it. Also trying to buy a house, finish the bus, and book the whole tour. Im a busy man. I cant wait to marry her though. I waited till I was 30 and I am sure glad I did.

Re: Cloud 9: My first schoolie

That's awesome! It's worth the wait, I was 24, and I love our kids and my wife's care for me has been a huge deal. She recently told me she thought we should invest in a woodstove that was more suited for the bus even if it cost us more money. I was shocked but then I forget how much she enjoys our bus and cares about the things I enjoy. We're lucky men, Johnny enjoy your ride this summer and if your in the Portland area give me a shout...
