If you can produce your own gardening is a great hobby and if you need to turn it in to just about anything I have years of experience and info.

Pm if you need any help

Not for him, it's a parole violation and he goes back for 5 more to finish his original sentence. I told him when they do the piss test they will see the THC content is higher than legal and you'll be done. A week later he failed a test at the probation hearing and he went back to prison and I moved back home. When it comes to 420, Ga just sucks.

There are only 10 grow operations in the state licensed to grow medical marijuana in Fla. Last time I checked the law specifically forbid "smoking" it at all. A judge has now ruled that law unconstitutional. Whether any other judge feels the same, I don't know. But you can still get popped by the police whether you have a license or not. Many believe if you have a license for the CBD you can still drive, wrong, you will be cited for DUI if they find any weed in your system, including oil.

I have qualifying medical issues and there are TONS of dispensaries here with full THC stuff.

Money WELL spent.
Where/How?!!?? You steal it? I dunno what the 36" ones go for but the 42" barrel fans are $300+. 36" might be better for the bus as you could still get around it fairly easy.


I wish we had real salvage yards. Go find a washer or dryer and use the motor out of it. Or a pool pump.

I think I got mine at Tractor Supply or Rural King.
Its REALLY nice and cools down a hot bus nicely. Creates a mini wind tunnel effect.
I also bought a smaller industrial fan that I use.

No rain in the forecast for today so no near misses with the T-storms. At least they cool things off for awhile. I need one of those big barrel fans but I ain't parting with $400. Need to find a real salvage yard. Get a dryer motor and a big old attic fan blade and make my own.


HEY!!! Don't walk so close to that. It ain't exactly stable and that guard is just for show.
Well **** I just scrapped a dryer motor because I couldn't figure out a use for it. C'est la vie.

I don't have Rural Kings here. I think when Chris first mentioned them, I checked locations and OH was the closest. Tractor Supply I've got, a bunch of those. And that's where I saw the 42" job at something like $350 I think. They have the 36" fans as well but I only paid attention to the 42s. You're paying for the electric motor basically. I haven't googled buying just the fan blade and a cage. Maybe I should do that. I do have a gas drier that is just sitting in the way. Thought about taking it to the MI house but it wouldn't fit in the VW and the Dakota doesn't get much better mileage than the bus so it sits in the way in the basement.


Yeah wind tunnel is exactly what I was thinking. Open the first 2 rows and the last two rows of windows. Maybe even just the front door and the rear e-window. Suck small fluffy birds thru there!!

I won't scrap a working motor. There's a lot of copper in there and it's worth a decent price as scrap but I just can't bring myself to do it. The moment it dies it's gone.

I use a 30" pedestal fan I got from Harbor Freight for a good price with a coupon. It moves plenty of air inside a bus, but it's awkward and heavy to move in and out through the doorway. Overall I'm a huge fan of the huge metal fan.

Harbor Freight have several 24-30" shop and pedestal fans for $150. More than adequate to move the air contents of a bus.

Probably so but I prefer the barrel fans to the tornado on a stick ones.

The shop fans are barrels fans.

Pretty sure a block that large will send the blades beyond eyeball depth.

HVAC companies... Old furnace blowers... weld a couple legs on.. most are all 110 volt.. put on a cord and instant fan... alot of times all this ends up stacked behind HVAC companies after they do tear outs of old systems..
