Re: Jerry's Crown

Jerry, do you have a little recording studio in your bus?

Hey Jerry --- outstanding arrangement. I can't tell from the pic what kind of A/C system you have, but are you running it off the solar/batteries as well?

Anything electrical equates as "Voo-Doo" to me, but I need to learn more about the new gen systems.
Electricity is one of the systems on a bus that require some knowledge and continued maintenance. AC or DC it doesn't really matter, you need some. The more you learn about it the better.
We don't have any AC. We try to live as close to outside and as close to free as possible. And stay away from places like Death Valley and Slab City in the Summer.

Hi Rudy,
Not really, I have a MAC with GarageBand and an M-Audio USB Pre Amp I plug into. I don't usually record at all, only when I mess with the sound and want to see what it sounds like.

Well, it's been a while so I thought I'd check in.
We are on the road from Oregon to visit friends in the Okefenokee Swamp in southern Georgia.
Now we are outside Yuma, AZ on BLM land and doing some dentist stuff across in Mexico.
Beautiful sunny day. We will leave in a couple of days and head east on I-10. It's nice to be back on the road again. Hopefully I will run into some WVO on the way.

Wow.....Just read through this entire thread. You definitely seem to be living life right!! I'm in process of getting started on my conversion and really look forward to the day I can get on the road. Have fun and some day, maybe we'll run into eachother somewhere in this crazy world!

Muddaearth, We went thru Kansas a couple of years ago, sorry we missed you. Next time.
BC, Thanks, We always think about you an look for your bus when we go thru Bakersfield. We try to go south thru Nevada but the weather has not been right the last few years so we go to Bakersfield and turn left.

Hello from the middle of nowhere, the desert in southern Arizona, 80 in the day and 50 at night.
We were passing thru Tucson and spent the night a little west of town on BLM land. We were leaving when a guy came up to us and wanted to take a video of our bus. We said sure and this is the video.

Thanks for sharing the video, Jerry. The bus is beautiful!

Looks like nice weather out in Tucson- My old romping grounds. What part of town was this filmed as it looks to be outside a ways.

Keep living the Good Life !
