First trip with my bus!

All was successful. It felt really good knowing that all my hard work paid off. The thing runs very well. I took it to my Property and didn't have to sleep on the cold ground. That said, the beds are not done yet so the hard floor wasn't the best. But overall I am extremely pleased with how it is working out. I ditched the fish eye mirror for my return trip and seemed to get much better mileage. The only time I looked at it was to make sure it didn't hit anything in tight parking lots

Awesome sauce! Kudos on the successful shakedown cruise.

Guess the fisheyes're less critical with a shorty. Me, I like to keep a wary weather eye on the mooks who like to amble along, hiding in my otherwise blind spots!

Judging by the naked trees, where ever you landed it appears Spring ain't yet sprung.

Collapsible camp chairs are the way to go, btw. Decent ones are quite comfy, and consume loads less space in transit.

I am wondering, tho, why is there a storm drain in the middle of a pasture...

The property I bought had a ton of site prep work done for a shopping center that was never built. There is actually a nice gravel driveway under all that pasture looking stuff (10 years of inactivity). So the drains are for excess water runoff that goes through a sand filter and into the stream. Other than it being there I will never have a use for it. The property is northern ny state so the snow just recently melted.
