sweet!! i didnt know they rented those!.. yeah i love that service too... I rented the extra large harmonic Balancer Puller / installer just last week from AdVance auto parts.. thats also the nice thing about having an engine widely used in pickup trucks... theres lots of parts and tools available for most of it..

I used the existing holes and dine longer screws to attach a piece of 2x4 to the wall, then screwed a few more pieces together to give me a nice surface to install the mount. I also use some Paracord to keep the screen from moving around while we drive. It's super solid!

I used this wall mount kit: http://amzn.to/2onlubb

It's really solid and has no problem with my 39" TV. If I had to give a negative it would be that it came with excess hardware trying to be universal, and I ended up with a bunch of extra bolts and such that I didn't need.

I've had a 32" on an adjustable wall mount for the past 18 months. Works very well. I considered the ceiling mount but didn't like the way it folds up for traveling.

I simply bought a wall mount that was rated at more than double the actual weight of my TV to make sure it would hold up on rough roads.

After a few days in Oklahoma, we just entered Missouri. Oklahoma was a fun time, we spent an entire day fishing, we dodged tornadoes while camping out at a hunters campground, and discovered that Bass pro shop sells liquor.

Have you got to get a fishing license for each state you go to?

My bus is officially my Fishing Shack. I'm a pretty lousy fisherman beyond catching mountain trout, and they're hard to get to. But since this is a fishing shack I should be able to fish my way to the other coast sometime, kind of like you're doing.

Living the dream. Sorta.

If we cross paths, let's catch some fish for sure. We will be in the Midwest for a bit then heading to the west coast and on to Oregon. Then taking the northern route back across.

Absolutely lets do some fishing. Sounds like a great trip your on. I'm about 30 minutes off of the Nestucca River in the middle of the coastal range.

Nestucca River Steelhead Fishing - Best Fishing in America

And I'm such a bad fisherman for salmon and steelhead. I learned to cook fish right while up in Alaska. That's a driving trip I'd still like to do.

There's some nice hot springs in the Cascades around here. It's easy to park around here too, unless you want to be in a campground.

Out here they've put a 7 hour limit on Walmart parking lots. Still not bad considering you can buy anything you need and use porcelain toilets. That's available here if you want to be in town. The logging roads out here are great. It's easy to park by a creek or river. I worry about going back east because I don't like to park at Wally's.

Unless someone comes outa left field this may well end the game for several days till someone out on the road passes a welcome sign.
Not everyone's gona get to play this round. Why the rules were so stressed early on, but play on. I'll join back next round. No way I'll make it near any state line this summer.
