Buszlebub

I came up with a name for my bus even tho I haven't bought it yet, still waiting for that settlement ;) BUSZLEBUB.. SCREW BEEZLEBUB. Im happy to finally have my cast off but my leg still hurts

I just bought a new phone that allows me to color on any photo in my gallery. Can you guess what I first colored.? Yep a bus. I know it looks childish but hey. A general idea. White lines on front are led light bars. can't wait to get started, 5-6" lift on either 35 or 37's. Coming soon

This tool is cool in helping decide what color to paint your home. What you think.?

I see it now. That's a lovely rendering you've made there with your noticeable artistic talent. I like the way you can stay inside the lines.

The photo didn't display the first time I loaded this thread. So a cutaway. Nice to drive but kind of cramped for travel or camping. You'll need to tow a trailer so you have storage and a toilet. Just kidding. I like those. Very maneuverable and they tow great. For that trailer.

Ok, I'm really seeing it now. How the hubcaps tie in with the grill and the roof rack. It just brings it all together. And I've got to compliment you on that color, and I'm not just saying that with a strait face because I'm colorblind. I really, really, really mean it. I'm not sure you'll need headlights because people are going to see YOU coming.

Bored, don't you have a hobby or a cat? The bus can be your hobby for quite a while.

I'm still learning how to use this forum with uploading pictures and what not. So if you don't see an image, I'm sorry just let me no and I'll try and fix it. The bus before the color. This is the bus I decided to go with.

I fly Para gliders and skydive as a hobby but I'm recovering from a broken ankle stuck on the couch for the most part.

Oh come on hoppy. You've still got one good leg. Did you happen to video tape your flying? You've got the directional parachute with a fan on your back? How much does one of those rigs cost anyway. And my last stupid question, what do you do when you're way up there and you've got to relieve yourself? I imagine some of the flights are kind of lengthy.

I made the mistake of trying to fly the very next day I got my cast off, I really regret it cause I came down to hard and damaged it more. o'well lesson learned.
I don't have the fan on my back yet there are about $6,000 need my skoolie first, than im buying one for sure.
As far as relieving yourself its either go before or wear a really long latex tube that rolls out and attaches to the penis and runs down your leg and out the bottom, just be sure there is no one under you as a courtesy. I do not know how women deal with that situation tho.

I do have a youtube channel with a few videos of flights and one other if anyone is interested its not much tho, besure to watch in HD...> https://youtu.be/UHzVk9GsQSI

That looks pretty cool. I think that's a great idea. When you go on a hike and you get to the top of the mountain and you're tired, just fly back down. Or better yet just get a ride to the top of a mountain in the first place.

Was that you moaning during the flight? Just teasing.

I like that. No airplane to jump out of. Even better with a fan.

I'd like to do that. This forest area here in the NW really isn't the ideal situation for nonpowered flight. After you crash into a tree you still have 100 feet to fall.

Thinking about running off the mt. Helps me get hike up the mt. Faster, I belong to a flying club 20 minutes from my house, they have a quad that runs people up the mountain all day long, for flying. Called soboba flight park. Best decision i ever made. Everyone should try it once in their life.

They do some of that at the beach near here. Sometimes hang-gliders and sometimes para-gliders. I can see that being fascinating when you're around land that isn't full of trees.
