how about a wind generator





a set of 120 watt solar panels with all the goodies included





a honda EU 2000 geni





lots of diesel fuel! someplace near the beach, and away from the snow is even better.





I'll add more to the list as the neurons continue to fire and my brain spits out more good (?) ideas.

I would wish for a 7spd tranny from Rockwell international. I could lower my ropms at 65mph from 2900 to 1800rpms. I would also want a jake brake on my bus for the mountains and 2 rooof top airconditoners and a flame thrower under the rear bumper for those people who wish they could get your 20ton bus down the road with their little geo metro. Hehe

I realize this is a five year old topic but it never gets old right? Sometimes I wish I had cloaking device while driving through Utah!

Re: What's on your bus wish list?

Well, I've already got 400 watts of solar, and a wind generator.
What I want is a dead light plant, so I can remove the the crank-up mast and mount it to the rear of my Gillig.
That way I'll always be ready to deploy the wind turbine, and get above all those pesky tall structures generating turbulence near Center Camp when working at BurningMan!!
Anybody able to hook me up in Northern Cal or NEV??

Re: What's on your bus wish list?

I don't know if they as a whole are against skoolies but I've had the old troopers come rippin' up on my tail at some kind of sub-sonic speed more than once both times I've been through the northern part. We go to utah alot since it is so gorgeous but in my experience they dont like long hair and in the past were more than just looking to catch someone with the wrong kind of alcohol. Which is a whole other discussion on the wack laws that the state of Utah or should I say the church/state of Utah upholds. The good feeling comes when those same troopers have to pursue some other unlucky person giving their dollars to the state by choosing to travel there, once they realize that your ride is legit and they probably don't really have anything to hassle you about. Yeah I know that was a run'on sentence but I was onthe verge of a rant. Good luck in Utah
