If you can make it, PLEASE DO!
The more minds we have collaborating the better. Its pretty much ready. We welded in one all-thread jack/support and ran outa light. Took a while to rig up the generator. It has one of those PESKY bungs instead of a normal tank petcock/outlet. So I grabbed the tank of my classic Snapper mower, emptied it into a can and took that to use. Works great.
Pics to come. Man, I'm tired.
Dave is the ultimate bus saint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sure is handy having a shorty and a golf cart.


The golf cart made a hand mobile welding stand.


The bus on the neighbor's paved back driveway. Better than a cow pasture for stability.

I had to dig a bit to find that, but I think about those memes a lot more than you'd expect, or maybe you understand how the mind wanders while spending hours in the bus. Every time I laugh at the ridiculousness of the post. Really freaking funny.

Also the welding golf cart is awesome, makes me want a golf cart, but no more toys for now.
