All I have left on my list for this week is to add vents to the base of my console so my heater works properly, fix the trailer wiring, and come up with something for curtains. Then time to head west!! And yep, I'm gonna be climbing some mountains. Can't wait to hit the first grade and open my window to listen to the stack sing
Please update us as you go! Trips like that are definitely worth it and can be lots of fun.

Re: Project "Brutus"

I will for sure update as I go. We are starting to pack and I am going to finish curtains tonight. I'll make sure to take a couple pics before we fill it full of stuff. Actually, you guys should prepare for lots of pics, haha...I love trip pics. I may have to open a second hosting account so I don't hit my limit -_-

Re: Project "Brutus"

Well, looks like it's curtains for the bus. Literally They need to be ironed, but they are done. I would have prefered the larger panels were bunched up some, but since I was hacking up old curtains, this is the width I had to work with. I hemmed the bottoms so that I could run another spring wire through there as well, to keep things looking nice. I just don't have any yet...minor detail, they look fine as is. I was a little rusty, and made a couple mistakes, but nothing my sister's surger won't be able to fix (hopefully!) If you click on the panoramic, and then click the "+" sign twice, you will see it fullsize.

Re: Project "Brutus"

What a sissy-boy! Sewing curtains... pfft!

Just kidding. I'm pretty handy with a sewing machine myself, and yes, it is great to know how to do it. And a sewing machine is a TOOL, and therefore manly, right guys?!

Now if only I knew how to knit! We could all have a virtual knitting circle!

Haha!! Yup, that's my version of knitting. I don't mind sewing, it's ALMOST fun. My daughter paid me a funny compliment, she said I made sewing look manly, LOL!
