Well, Tommy and I worked on the bus again today. He reconnected the ignition thingie and showed me how to "hotwire" the bus. We had to jump the batteries again, so I'm thinking it's getting time to replace those.
Next year. With my tax return money.
We did get the bus running though, and took it out to the shop. Unfortunately, it was closed up. I was hoping to just park it in their lot and come back Monday after work to start on a work ticket, but the parking lot was slam full.
So fall back to Plan B. I'll just have to wait until Monday to make an appointment and hope when they finally have an opening I can get BOB running again. But at least we blew the crap out of the pipes today and got to take a little drive around a couple of blocks. It's funny how quickly one gets used to driving something that HUGE.
My Dad called while we were eating breakfast and was happy to hear BOB was running again. (Yeah, him and me both!
) He hopes to help out with the build. It will be the first thing we've ever worked on together, and I'm hoping he'll get a kick out of doing this as much as I do. I'm definitely looking forward to working with him.
Unfortunately, I forgot the camera, so no pictures this time, guys. If you want to see something different, go to my YouTube site (linked below) and see how much the creek I live on flooded Thursday. Fun stuff!!!
I will TRY to remember the camera Monday when I go visit BOB again.
