Once again, thank you all. Yesterday turned out to be the worst chemo day I have had so far (happy birthday dude). Really a rough one and still not able to sleep. Makes it hard to get anything done on the bus. Hoping I can get some kind of relief after talking to the docs again on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, still gotta meet with a builder/helper today to try and keep some small things moving.
Hope you all enjoy a great Game Day. Me, I'm not a sports fan at all but enjoy seeing others using it as an excuse to eat, drink and have fun.
Howdy All --- Been quite a while since I posted anything but that's cause there has been no progress on the bus. And truth be known, there is not likely to be much if any more. The cancer I have is simply not curable by any current means. That is not to say that I am caving in. I will not, as the poet said, "go gentle into that good night" and will fight this all the way through to the end. But, I am also a realist. And given that the odds are a few million to one that I can make it another year, I need to make plans for what to do with the bus just in case that magic, miracle cure doesn't come through.
My fantasy would obviously be for someone to pick up where I leave off and finish this project. I hate the idea of parting it out but also need to convert what I can to cash to leave my family & grandkids. I doubt they could deal with this project very well.
I have a lot invested and quite a few parts and accessories that most builders could put to good use.
Like I said, not quite ready to fold my hand on this just yet, but felt like I should begin putting the word out regarding a possible garage sale to end all garage sales and wanted to start with my Skoolie family.
I will write up the particulars on the bus as well as a list of the other items that are ready to go but it will probably be a month or so before I post the details.
If anyone is interested in picking up wherever I leave off on this build, just drop me a line.
And many thanks to all here for the years of support and good wishes. You folks have become very much a part of my extended family.
WOW, this really, REALLY SUX! Never been very good at sentiment, but I am very angry right now. I might not only be losing one of my favorite people, but I might not see this masterpiece finished? At least not by the original visionary?
If I had $50k I would start the bidding there, but not sure I could do it any justice after seeing your designs and artistry.
I truly hope the outcome is not as bad as you think, but understand the preparation.
Let me know what I need to do to help, Houston is only a few hours away.
