Thanks Ronnie! I'm planning another trip to work on her more. Hopefully we can get out there before the end of this month.


Thanks for watching as well!

Here's the latest update on our Crown project. We are planning our next trip to the mainland (we live in Hawaii) to work on the bus. In this video we review our budget and plan for the upcoming trip. More bus videos are coming soon!

I know someone that shipped a 45 foot motorhome here and it was 10k. Our plan is to keep it on the mainland for when we go on trips. Which we will be able to do more often once the bus is finished and we can avoid paying for hotels.

This week we get to do a few different things. I work on the engine a bit while Heidi preps and paints the back step area with rustoleum primer and paint. There's a lot of content so grab a cup of coffee or a beer and check it out!
