Keep that bus running. I head over in the morning to button things up and get to finally drive the bus a whole eight miles to meet porkchopsandwiches. Yippee!

Re: Project "Brutus"

Appears that we can only view it when you are logged in or something? Getting error message to that effect. Still and all stay safe. Hated freeway overheads through Wyoming due to the wind when I was driving Motor homes.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Yup, it only works while logged in and if I lose signal it breaks the link I think :/

Anyway, we made it to Kalispell finally! The wind was horrible the first night (30mph) so we didn't make it near as far as we wanted to. Slept in a Walmart parking lot, nice and cozy in the bus with 20 mph winds and rain outside Made it to Missoula the next day and now Kalispell this morning. The trip has been amazing so far and the bus has done awesome. Seems surreal after working on it so long! We are going to spend a few days here with my sister and brother in law, and then heading to Redding. Fuel mileage has been rough. 6mpg vs the 9 I was hoping for -_- Life goes on

Re: Project "Brutus"

Hope your trip is going swell. Maybe your mileage will improve once the wind goes down. I went after my bus Friday and it was a windy torrential down pour north of Bismark.

Re: Project "Brutus"

William, not too bad! Way more noise coming from the firewall and doghouse. Eventually, it will get a muffler, though.

Gus, the funny thing is that Bismark is where I finally stopped driving Friday, lol... Yeah, lots of wind for sure, especially with a trailer :/

Re: Project "Brutus"

Everything looks great. I wasn't sold on silver but I like it with all the black now that it's finished. What kind of speed did you maintain?


It looks like your traveling with your mother in law!
