My plan is to use some of the more interesting stuff out of an automatic transmission. If I can figure out how to thin-slice the valve body (?) part that'd look sweet embedded in a countertop!

Burlking- that is hilarious, I was leaning more towards that one too, well that makes three of us for that poster I think we have a winner.

Twigg- I guess I will have to test it out on a smaller poster first, if it doesn't work they print them on canvases as well, so it should be ok when I find the right materials, I still will do more research on the matter.

RUSTY: encasing your rivet's is something you wish you would have done.? I got plenty of nut's & bolt's I wish I was into steam punk.


ECCB: One of these day's I most definitely will, maybe not within the next couple years but stranger things have happened. When I finally do make it to Florida I look forward to you along with the other great members of skoolie to show me around. I think Florida is on the map.

I wanna do that roadtrip MAP!!!!!
in a school bus!!

my older brother did that trip in the 80s... perimeter of the USA.. I dont have his actual route.. I remember he tried to do as close to the edges as he could and still hit the landmarks he wanted to hit.. he bee-bopped around more in the west as he wanted to hit interior mountain ranges and what not in colorado / utah/ wyoming. but still made the likes of tuscon / phoenix/ LA san fran / seatlle.. then went on to fairbanks alaska... in a 1985 Ford Escort pony... with NO NOTHING on it.. not even a radio till he put one in... he had a BLAST doing that trip and said it was WELL worth the time and effort to do it...

That's a dangum interstate map that takes you away from the Carolina coast.
My hearts in Texas but I live in the carolinas minutes from the coast. Nothing to be scared of. And if you need a coast map let me know?
It will probably start with all the shipwreck graveyards from the 15-1700 hundreds you can still dive on except blackbeards who has a museum now that's it's being extracted or the many PIRATE history lessons you never heard about.
Many a campground that is SKOOLIE acceptable.

jolly roger-Ship wreck grave yards you say..? sounds like a metal detecting dream to me. I know blackbeard has a massive booty buried somewere. I think I need to move to the east coast & just be part of the east coast bus clan, but the humidity would probably drive me out.

It is hard to see. Does that include intercontinental driving?

It sure would be cool to take your own bus to another country and drive around.

Your route doesn't include Maritime Canada and Newfoundland? You don't know what you are missing when that close. Ferry service to Nfld is awesome, waves splashing off the restaurant windows which are 70feet above the waterline. And iceburgs like nowhere else.
You might want to consider coming this way too, you or anyone tripping around.

Does that restrict international travel? I didn't know that.

I'd have to back up and add more insulation before that trip.

As East Coast Ambassador, I hereby invite you to join the bus clan.

The humidity just means your smoke doesn't dry out as fast!

I do know what you mean for sure as I can't enter your country. Doesn't bother me too much anymore with the state of things these days, better off at home.
Canada will let you in after some questions if you cross at a border crossing. They are letting thousands of immigrants in that cross at places other than border crossings from the US.
It would be worth your while to try imho.

robin- im not sure i only been to mexico once & its not like they give a S**t about who comes & goes.

eccb- lol.. i always wanted & needed a reason to travel east only been once in 6th grade. im just about done with the west coast.
one of these days ill drop everything & drive east.

blackjohn- have you tried getting into the states.? i havent tried but it is worth a try. canada seems like an amazing place to travel & i cant drive to alaska without canada, if they dont let me in cause somethin i did in the past that is crazy considering they let all those dam illigals in.

Actually you can get to Alaska without going through Canada.

Check out; Alaska State Ferry | Alaska Marine Highway System

Believe me, this is better than driving through Canada.

I think that this is the "Travel all year and stay in 70 degree weather" road map. Can anyone tell me if I'm right?

Hot damn! Another one! I went to Hiram College; dated a girl from Geneva On The Lake. I have lots of friends in Akron and Cleveland. I will for sure be dragging my bus out that way once I get one and build it out.
