That's an amazing piece of art!

I initially thought you were doing it at your residence... Now you're going to have to search for the google earth image of it the next time sat pics are updated.

Back to bus stuff --- Spent the entire weekend relocating my shop & bus to the new digs. Had to hire some extra muscle to help get the "big stuff" into a 20' U-Haul but it was worth it. Once the shop was relatively cleared, I had a local wrecker haul the bus front wheels up after disconnecting the driveshaft. Thankfully, there was no drama involved. Still have a days worth of toting small stuff to do but hope to get back on the actual build within days.

ONWARD!

Yahoo!! Glad to hear it! I also would love to get back to bus stuff. At the moment, I am helping my wife take care of her Mom who just had her knee replaced, so really not able to get a lot of bus stuff done... itchin' to get back to it... Hoping that by next week I should be able to have more time.

Glad to hear the move was uneventful and keep us posted as always!

John

Working on a bus is hard. Working on getting to a place to even work on your bus has to be extremely frustrating.

The nice folks at re:HAB Bar on the Bayou are planning a gala "Premier" to officially launch the Big Bench. If you are in the neighborhood on Sunday, November 27th @ 3pm feel free to stop by for the Ribbon Cutting...and a few adult beverages. Way too much fuss for my blood, but they wanted to do something so I'll be there.

Aw shucks...it's just a big pile of cement guys!

Congrats Tango. That bit of recognition is well deserved!

Assuming you survive the Gala, how about a few pics of your new digs?

Yeah, I guess I'll have to pace myself. Especially since I re-negotiated the terms for the bench. I originally agreed to do it in return for "free drinks for life"...but recently up it to "free drinks for life...plus five years".

And I will try to get a couple of shop pix in the next few days. I have my gear already in, but we are still doing a ton of work. Adding insulation to the West facing wall, studs on 24" centers with OSB sheathing. We are getting the place so cheap, it's worth the upgrade. I already have a 16' workbench and a couple of large storage shelf units built, but there is more to do.
