Engine Trouble on the Road

So we,re about seven weeks in. It has already been a pretty wild ride! Without going into too many details of all the issues switching over to this lifestyle, the inevitable engine failure is approaching.... The old Ford is loosing power and oil so were looking for a place to park, do an engine overhaul, and order some parts. This may be a lot to ask for and shot in the dark, but i figured it would be worth a try.

We are currently parked at Meadow Lake Park on Ennis Lake Near Ennis, Montana. If anybody reading this is in the area and has a little space to park, it would be greatly appreciated.


FYI...we have our own tools and money, we tend to go to sleep early and will make every effort to not be an intrusion.

Clutch Rebuild

We made to Port Angeles! Barely...

After talking to a couple shops I was not getting the right vibes, I went across walmart parking lot to find A & A Truck and Auto Repair. The shop was open but nobody around except a pug... went back to the bus found the phone number. Dwayne came over to walmart to look at the bus and said come on over. So here we are parked and plugged in nice spot in the woods awaiting to tear into in the morning.

sure was a wild ride through the mountains to get here... glad we made it safe
