The Plan is to start conversion while also taking short trips.Then hopefully will be finished when youngest daughter graduates. Retire, Then follow the leaves. This Cold Ohio Weather is to hard on this OLD MAN.

Buckeyes had a real long winter for sure. I'm in Cuyahoga Falls (Akron area). Jeff Gordon looked real good Sunday! Thats a big bus you have there. I have a short, shuttle bus to camp in and haul my ATV's. Looking forward to your build.

Nice rig! I am leaving New Hampshire tomorrow headed back to the warmer climate of home. So I know what you mean about the colder temps!

Welcome to the club!

Re: Space Oddity

Do you have a lot of rust 'issues' to deal with? My folks used to live in Stow, Ohio near Akron when I was a senior in high school back in the very early '70's. In fact I think it was in 1970 come to think of it!
It looks like you are progressing nicely! Since I don't have quite the energy I had 30 years ago, I just try to get a little bit done very day and it slowly adds up!

May I suggest....

Simply Right Sublingual Vitamin B-12 is formulated with methylcobalamin, a naturally active form of B-12 in the body, so itís naturally better for you. Methylcobalamin is more readily absorbed and retained by the body to provide greater daily energy and alleviate occasional fatigue, promote a healthy metabolism and overall cardiovascular support. B-12 is also known to support cognitive health and brain function, a healthy nervous system, and provide for a strong immune system.
It doesn't rev you up but gives you stamina. Pharmacist said it was okay in combination with David's heart meds. Now he doesn't fall asleep all the time due to his meds while sitting in his chair. We both take one tablet every day. Much cheaper than 5 Hour Energy, longer lasting, tastes better. Tastes like cherry.
