Re: El Tortuga...update 01-18-13

busy working on the bus this weekend
I got the bikes mounted inside







mounted a tv also,I had to modify bracket to allow acess to the plugs and also mounted a 3rd bolt to secure it







worked on the back walls so we can lean on them etc
still need to poly them tho'



Still need to make a dust cover for tv and then a velcro strap to hold it against wall when traveling

Looking sharp Bansil.

I really dig the tv mount and the wood work. Keep up the strong work!

fishing (with bobbers),kayaking (on quiet rivers and lakes nothing above classI rapids dont want to spill our beer ) and mountain biking (on flat ground now)....kinda look like posers
I was actually looking at the 3 wheel bikes...but they are too wide for back door....but...they have a picnic basket and a bottle of wine holder now that would be nice

One should always eat right and drink plenty of fluids when engaging in outdoor exercise (or indoor for that matter)
