Doing a little yard work . . .



After I put the new radiator in I decide to do a little yard work to warm her up.

One of many uses for a bus

I have seen buses used for passengers, hauling freight , hauling construction material, and some buses have been made into RVs. Ya gotta respect a guy who uses a bus to the max. Good job VS... Frank

Yep. First I tried a 2900 lbs chain and that snapped immediately. When it broke the bus shot backwards, you can see the patch where the front wheels skidded when I stomped on the brakes!

The 15K lbs tow strap doubled over did the trick - a useful thing for $19 from Northern Tool and probably the safer option anyway.
