This is a fun idea. I would be a great example of a guy who removed the seats, put in my stuff. Minimal production (2 rugs, 3 chairs, a colman stove, etc)

also my story of how i woke from a dream about a bus, and groggily grabbed my phone to search Craigslist for a bus. Flash forward 1 yr and i am with bus

I have been working 7-days a week but if you will schedule ahead of time after mid july and bring it 6-hours down to the nc beach on the weekends I will/can help get the seats out and you get road time to work some of the mechanical out to make sure it is worthy?
I love an old 10-speed tranny.

I dont worry about the small oil leaks.. seems around here even the school busses in service leave a few drops on the ground.. I just figure its a bus thing to have a few drops as long as the level doesnt drop fast and it doesnt cause a hazard (ie stays away from exhaust and other importabt components)..

I too am a minimal build.. A/C (a few of those).. a server rack, still some bus seats, a couple cabinet.. batteries.. internet connection, etc.. Travelling randomly as a software asnd hardware Developer / business owner..

Delicious looking bison!
The new national animal. They're actually killing them off in huge numbers out in Colorado at the urging of the beef lobby.
I wish they'd at least ship out some tasty steaks.

In Montrose for repairs and package pickup, did some repairs on the bike from almost INSIDE the bus, thought you folks might get a kick out of it.

Fast forward to 4:50 to avoid my rattling on

Nice job Dred. You might be spinning your tire on the rim. An old offroad racer fix was to run a few sheetmetal screws through the rim and into the bead to keep the tire from slipping and tearing the stem off. You do have to get the length and position right to avoid puncturing the tube but the tire will NOT slip on the rim.

BTW...I taught some of my early cement sculpture classes right there in Montrose a few years back. Nifty little town and the Black Canon is awesome. I remember looking down on a flight of bald eagles that were at least 500 feet below me. Very cool.

Keep on Truckin' bud!
