OK I havent been on in a few days, just thought I'd update.
I finally figured out how to make a gallery so now I have photos in the gallery yee haww!
My mom just moved back here to Wichita from Pennsylvania so I've been being Mr. Handyman around her new house changing lightbulbs and putting stuff together for her and the like. I really wish I was an electrician because we have found some outlets that dont work. Same identical outlets in two bathrooms and a couple lights we cant get to work. and running back and forth inside and outside trying to figure out which lightswitch turns on what light and stuff like that.
Anyway... went to Lowes this past weekend and they were having a sale. The fridge I had picked out was on sale marked down from 279 bucks to 219. So I bought one. The gas/electric fridge that was in the bus wasnt working and I dont know why (I'm no Fridgeologist). But I got my new 4.4 cubic foot apt sized fridge in the space and now I believe I have an awesome size fridge for an RV. THEN this weekend was also city wide garage sale weekend here in town. The girlfriend and I cruised up and down the streets and just window shopped from the nice air conditioning inside my truck. Well we were almost done and about to head home when we spied a king sized bed. While trying to find a spot to turn the truck around in heavy foot traffic and lots of vehicular traffic as well we passed another sale with another king sized matress. We went back and checked them out and the first one was alredy sold. BUMMER!
So we checked out the other one. $200 on the price tag. Nah I said too much money. I was hoping to spend a lot less on one. We went around the block and wound up driving by the second garage sale again and my GF says "hey it looks like they marked down the price of the matress to like $75 now." I'm like NOOOO theres no way they marked it down that far its probably 175 and still more than I wanna talk about with them. Shes adamant that it was 75 so we wound up going around the block AGAIN and I stopped and got out and looked. and WOW it WAS $75!!! The lady at the sale saw me checking it out and said make an offer I dont wanna store it. So I offered her $50 and she said yes!!! We hauled the thing home on top of my topper and then realized something very important...
How do we get it INSIDE the bus???????????? Its waaay too big to go through the back door. It would have slid on its side through the front but there is the matter of the 2 steps immediately inside the door. 2 ratchet straps later and a lot of cussing. We had the thing crammed and shoved and jammed and kicked and stuffed through the front door twisted up the steps and then standing up on its side inside the bus. Turns out a king size matress on its side is slightly wider than a bus is tall on the inside. but we managed to slide it all the way to the back and get it flopped over and laying down across the two bunks on either side. I have some plywood in the garage that I am gonna cut and slide in the back door under the mattress to support the middle. Theres about 6 or 8 inches on each side of the mattress to the wall.
OH YEAH!!! I'm gonna be sleepin on a really nice king size bed in my bus !!
