Still going......

Been a while since I posted here......been real busy.
Just wanted to drop a note to say BruinGilda is still going strong two years after completion......did I say completion.......well, we all know they are NEVER complete.
She has 8 or 9 good weekend or longer trips under her belt and my son full-timed in her for about a year.
I have her back and am getting ready for her third summer.
Contrary to opinions on "other bus related" boards, the plumbing hasn't frozen and the electric parts still have their smoke inside!
I'm looking forward to a fun summer with the old gal!
I haven't updated the web page since I finished her as I have been using

That's cool!

Did your son travel around, or did he stick in one spot?

For me, using the bus seems the best motivation to keep on working on her!

Wonderful to hear she's being employed in the manner intended, and trouble-free, too! (Hope I didn't just jinx ya! ) She's a beauty!

I've been studying your site for a while for ideas of what to do, and not do, when I get a bus next year.
