Seems there are a couple of Skoolie folks on the north side of town but no idea who they are. Might check the Skoolie map for names.

I'm locked up all weekend with the biggest art show of the year here at my place or I'd jump on the chance to drive that puppy.

Thanks man.
Barring a miracle, I'll likely try to reschedule my colonoscopy and shoot for getting it after the holiday week.
Seems dumb to me that they take a whole week off, then again next month.

Let me know if someone cant pick it up today and stash it. I had 3 reasons for going to Houston not in any particular order.

1. - visit skoolie Friends in Houstom
2. - Tranny swap with Txstreetman - DEFUNCT (due to my work yesterday and todayI couldnt leave for houston)

3. - pickup ECCB cool as heck shortie.

so if 2 out of 3 reasons are defunct, Ill come to hoiuston another time. fortunately I havent booked any airplane flights or hotels in florida or texas.. (with my line of work, travel plans change hourly so no issues on my end if plans are changed)..

Yeah, I just can’t get there today. After the holidays I am totally free. If it would have been this past Wednesday or Thursday, could’ve worked.
Cadillackid, eastcoast & Tango, y’all have my number if anything changes. Keep me posted.

Thanks, you're all really kind folks!
Looks like I'll just have to wait.

Balls to the wall busy trying to get RYO ready to go. Shauns compressor broke right when I needed it today, so I'm in town trying to borrow one.

Week after TG

Okay CB, Iíll keep that week open as much as possible. Should not be any problem. If you need me to go to Cleveland to pick it up, Iíll get someone to take me there and drive it back to Alvin. This week just seemed so screwed up. If anything changes let us know.

good deal, Im gladd ECCB caught that at the last minute. this coming week wouldve been perfect for me as with the holiday ill probably be slower with work.. ill have to see what week after TG brings if you havent found a way yet.. there was a tentative trip to Miami scheduled for that week but not sure if thats still on or not..
I know on a personal level im Kicking my own arse for ditching my place in florida.. for one with all the cool skoolie gatherings and bus building you guys are doing it could be a lot of fun!!

I'm getting more and more into working on them these days. And meeting more and more folks with buses. Its definitely becoming a bit of a community here.

225/70R19.5.

id like to have 245's. for a bit better ride.. although ill see how the ride is with the front end being rebuilt.. I have a feeling as bad as my kingpins were that my ride will be considerably better..

my ground clearance is crappy though. but I dont drive that bus in sand or off-road..

My front on this new bus look newer and are listed as "good". They're 245's.
If I end up upgrading sooner than later, you're welcome to the 245's. They look fairly meaty for 19.5's.

Man, the more I work on these buses the more I'm looking forward to this high horsepower, clean straight texas bus! Can't wait to get to work on it.

I didn't catch the time frame, but I should be back to assist, the week after Tday.
I'm in the woods right now, but next week should be ok.
