NICE!!!! What video editing program are you using? I've been trying to use Windows Movie maker for some stuff lately. It just makes me want to smash something.

Re: The Black Plague II (The new Jacuzzi Bus)

i'm using windows movie maker. i've tried a few other programs, but i find this one to be the easiest to use. I'm pretty new to the video editing world....

Re: The Black Plague II (The new Jacuzzi Bus)

The other day i cleaned the bus inside and out, filled and heated the jacuzzi, and headed up to saginaw michigan (just like the song) to meet up with a group of girls for jacuzzi photos/video.

As luck would have it, the jacuzzi suffered major trauma on the trip. One of the supports about the size of my fist on the under side of the jacuzzi decided to poke it's way through the tub. 400 gallons of water escapes out a fist sized hole in a very short period of time!

Though i could find a way to fix the hole, i decided to just get rid of this jacuzzi and replace it with a new one. well...a new used one. New jacuzzi swap is tomorrow's project. i'll post photos....


is the bus ever gonna be finished? I want to get this thing sold on ebay, but i want to take my time and make sure i do it right.

You always have some sort of crazy adventure with that thing! How did you get the water out of the bus?

If that happened while you were driving I wonder what the people behind you thought when all the sudden a liquid came pouring out of you bus. Did it ruin the carpet?

Re: The Black Plague II (The new Jacuzzi Bus)

there is no carpet in the bus. I do have a few rugs, but they are easily removed and hung up to dry. I really engineerd this bus from the beginning to be able to handle a lot of water on the floor. There are some good sized drain holes for the water to exit. 400 gallons in just a few minutes is a little more than i anticipated. When i hit the brakes, the floor was wet all the way to the drivers seat. As a matter of fact, water was draining down into the doorway onto the steps. I took out all the rugs, and let the bus dry out.

Today was a good adventure. Instead of the rope-over-the-tree-branch method of lifting the jacuzzi, i found a local farmer that had a backhoe. First we had to drive about a half hour away to purchase our new jacuzzi we found in the want-ads. Then we had to load it onto the trailer, haul it home, fill with water, find leaks, drain, take off the roof, remove the old jacuzzi, clean out the bus, fix a few leaks on the new jacuzzi (had a couple of cracked fittings), fill with water and test for leaks again (there were none), drain, and finally install the new jacuzi. We had all of this done by 5 pm. We're getting to be jacuzzi experts! This is the nicest jacuzzi i have aquired yet....and i've aquired at least 6 of them now.

Re: The Black Plague II (The new Jacuzzi Bus)

first phills bus gets addicted to diesel safe starting fluid, now we have members of skoolie.net addicted to bus porn. lol

when i get the bus put back together i'll work on more girl photos. it actually takes a bit of work to get hot girls to model in the bus. Seems getting our schedules to match up, as well as finding interested participants is a bit of a chore.
