This has been a brutal week, got the trans swapped back in on Saturday only a week after the shop promised it, we were planning to leave Friday night.
Took off for Burning Man Sunday morning
Last good picture of my bus
Bracket to create porch over hitch for trailer- did not use it because I need the ball one step higher.
Was really enjoying the new drivers seat and matching copilot seat set up(which I didn't take a single picture of
), when I saw the trailer on fire
in the side mirror.
Last picture I took of my bus, out on I95 north of Needles, CA, had to bypass the hoover dam bridge because of the trailer. camera battery was low and died
The fire was already a good ways through the inside of the bus at this point, it was stunning how quickly the interior burned. Everything was reduced to charcoal on the floor, you could see right through the metal seat frames to the back door.
We all got off safely- no one was physically injured, but five days later I'm still exhausted and heavily stressed. Lost pretty much every thing on board, including my wallet
No worries I am thinking about my next bus(and have peeked at the Florida church bus website a few times)- the skoolie thing has become a part of me.My girlfriend was even enjoying driving it, amazingly...
