Re: THE ORIENT EXPRESS

Awesome experience. You should pick up a scooter while you're out there. PGO's a great brand, and they're sold over here as Genuine Buddy Company, so you'd be able to get parts and service in the States.

Let us know more about the LP hot water on demand unit! I know they are the standard way to heat water in Europe and Asian countries. What's the energy consumption for those units (LP/gallon of water or rise of degree)?

Hope your time out there is rewarding and fun. Get back soon, though. Can't wait to see what your bus looks like when it's done.

Very nice! That is going to look great on the bus. I really dig the last option on the first picture.

Re: THE ORIENT EXPRESS

I have to agree that the last logo ( fits the name "Orient Express" the best.
I would suggest darkening the green a little, though. Otherwise the word tends to be a little washed out from a distance.

Re: THE ORIENT EXPRESS

I like #2, but I think that is because it has a sharper contrast. If that is not your goal though, #1 is pretty nice too.

And why did you do that? I've built custom countertops for a couple of decades. I only used a roller and (most often) a hammer with a block of wood (rolled the air out, tapped the hammer on the wood block to enhance the adhesion needed with the contact cement). Never have we needed to weight to countertops down. Who told you to do that? Not trying to put your method down, but it was not necessary.

Re: THE ORIENT EXPRESS

Perhaps it was not contact cement.

Your replacement counter tops look good. Also a good job on cutting in the corners of the oak trim. Glad to see you back again--keep the pics flowing. Jack
