In photography-related news, my hosting site has added a feature that allows me to share photo galleries with only invited guests, so I have made the Nudes gallery public, but you can only view the contents if you're on "the list." Obviously, the gallery is not safe for work, but the contents are all high quality and hardly offensive unless you just don't like bare skin.

If you're interested, PM me your email address and I'll add your name to the guest list. Then you'll need to create a guest account on SmugMug to view the gallery.

I know this is kind of a pain, but SmugMug is a good company with a track record of not being douchebags—I wouldn't steer you wrong. The only reason I like this process is it keeps untold numbers of people from accessing the gallery if a single password gets sent to the wrong person.

Or, you could just go to the site without doing any of this and view my public galleries which are also very nice. The web address is in my signature.

There was a discussion on another thread about adding a side deck to a bus so I rendered a few quick ideas to see how it might work on my own bus:

Folded for the road; adds just three or four inches to the width:


Halfway deployed; the section on top folds out in front of the door with a drop-down step:


Ready for use and doesn't block use of the door:

Yes! This is precisely what I had in mind. Thanks for the renderings.

Looking at this, I would say a removable door would be needed over the rear wheel to allow access for tire changes and maintenance. Taking off the whole deck would be prohibitive.

Finally got around to modeling the ladder for the roof hatch.

This is a 72 degree climb angle and I figure that's a comfortable angle while keeping the length of the ladder to a minimum.


Detail of the hinge parts. The top step is incorporated into the fixed mounts and is slightly wider than the ladder rungs. I could have put the step lower and make it possible for the climber to get more than just the ball of his foot on the step, but that would have made the final step over the hatch opening a little too high. (It's 11" from the ceiling to the top of the opening.)


In the stowed position it fits flush against the ceiling and doesn't interfere with the front ceiling light.

And an exhaust stack on the passenger side. It wouldn't work with the proposed side deck, but it's fun to think about. ;)
