Why, Thank You.

Only kidding, I was just curious about the symbol.

And, yes, he does love all of us.

Photos on havoconthehighway.com work!

Hello everyone! I'm the webmaster which the_experience03 speaks of. He knows the bus, I'm a virgin to html code. It's the first site I've ever done so it's pretty crude, but serves its purpose!

The photos, on http://www.havoconthehighway.com , which apparently haven't been working for most people, should be working now.

There isn't much though, mostly randomness. We forgot to take pictures of the outside of the bus in the daylight. They'll be there in time though. Patience! It's been -40 in the tundra of Minnesota recently so we haven't got around to anything yet.

And if you guys are ever in Iowa let me know, we can get to together and talk bus. (Or bring it down for an ISU football game for the time of your life)

And so it begins....Shane, Natalie, and I started tearing seats out today after the bus fired up like a champ (it was 30 degrees today, 40 more than last week) and we took it for a short spin.


It took about an hour and a half to two ours of leisurely working to get all the bolts out from the wall side of the seats (Shane and Natalie) and to grind the 4 aisle bolts per seat on 11 of them. That puts us at over half done with seat removal in just 2 hours....pretty damn amazing for a Minnesota bus

You can check out the progress as well as other randomness at the website. We're (or Shane rather) is still learning Dream Book so please forgive any problems you may encounter. Also, dial up beware if you go to look at the pics as they are 4 megapixal pics with no compression or thumbnails. We'll work on that...maybe...but with 5 gigs of hosted space, we're not too worried about it. Finally, clicking on the ads on the bottom of the page generates signifigant income for us and really requires no more than a click on the link and a click on your browser's back button so please feel free to do so.

I did atleast have safety glasses on although a mask and some ear plugs would have been a HUGE help. Grinding in a giant tin can.....

Looks like it was a lot of fun getting those seats out. I can't wait to get my bus and start tearing into it. At least it was warm out.

Oh it was lots of fun getting those seats out. It's supposed to get cold again so the other half might not happen for awhile, but it's always nice when mother nature lets us make some progress!

So the pictures on the website have finally been thumbnailed properly (for those who were afraid of waiting for 18 1MB pictures to download all at once) and I also put up a page detailing our expenses if anyone is interested in that also. Thanks for looking and enjoy! (...and if you want you can click a couple times on the ads at the bottom of the page )
