Re: Smells Like Teen Spirit: Conversion of 1999 Thomas MVP

Hi Teen Spirit!
I just read this entire thread, I am so impressed with the work you have done. Especially because you are young too ( at 25 I hope I still count as part of that group) I also agree with the generation today. Everyone is either letting life drift by or charging down a corporate path I can't get behind. The bus is a dream for a successful future without buying in. It is encouraging that you are making so much progress, I hope Justin and I do half as well. We have a hard time battling the excuses and set backs. Congrats and keep up this thread, I plan to refer to it once we get started. Thanks!

Free Spirits who dream and also think!?...

...by God there may be hope for this next generation after all!

Words of encouragement & wisdom taken from a Texas Rangers medallion (the lawmen, not the baseball team)...

On one side it reads... "Do right and fear no man."

On the other, in Dog Latin..."Illegitimi non carborundum"...which loosely translates as...

"Don't let the bastards grind you down"

I disagree it seems to many people have giving up & expect the Government to step in & take care of them so they don't have to take responibilty for their actions , It's refreshing to see young people wanting to break away from what the youth have become, or at least whats encouraged

Please don't turn my page into a political debate...if you want to debate, let's bring our buses and meet up, last one there buys a keg. THAT is a good idea.

I have nothing to add to this, I just thought this was worth repeating.

True true. I prefer a knob creek or a makers mark on the rocks, and if all else fails a gin and tonic.

Sorry for no updates recently. It has been ballsy cold and everything has snow and ice on it, actually kind of unusual for this region this time of year. Usually we don't get significant snow until jan / feb. Must be the global warming. I'm in the process of moving my bus to my neighbors house from my uncles (saves me a 30 minute drive to go work on it, and I won't need to use a generator) and I need to get it registered and inspected to do this (legally). $250 for inspection, gotta pay 6% sales tax at the mva, all that good stuff. I need to reinstall the mirrors, seat, all indicator and marker lights, and the front heater. Luckily they only require a blower motor for a defogger for inspection because I threw out the heater hoses.

So hopefully I can get that down here within 2 weeks, so all I will have to do is walk next door to work on it. My neighbors are way too nice.
