I figured I would post up some pics of my latest adventure out to Red Barn in Aromas California and then to Kelley Park in San Jose. On our way out there my buddy broke down about two hours from our first destination. Listening to the motor and determined that something internal let loose and should not be driven any further, I got a tow strap and towed my buddy to the nearest exit which was on the opposite side of the 5 freeway. Made a u turn across the grassy ditch / median and stopped at the nearest gas station, where we found a local who showed us where the nearest uhaul location was.

Thank goodness they opened early on a Friday morning. They asked what I was going to be towing and they were not gonna to let us take the tow dolly if I was towing another bus. So, we told them it was a bug :-$ We also had to hit up O'Reillys for a hitch, ball, and wiring for the lights as well

Arrived in Aromas California at 1pm on Friday, 12 hours later after we left our house. We were one of the first few there.

Red Barn was a success and we were able to find someone to tow my buddies bus back home. We were the last ones to leave Red Barn, they actually asked us if we planned on leaving because they were going to lock the gates.

Woke up early in the morning just to wait in the non reserved waiting bays for Kelley Park until they let all the reserved people in first.

A few busses at Kelley Park, I didn't enter mine in the show since I was swapping with my buddy and my bus was covered in bugs on the nose. The kind with wings.

Thanks again JJ, that bus was real fun to tow up the grades with my little 1745cc motor. Even better coming down them, couldn't imagine doing it with drum brakes.

I actually went around the park looking for your bug or you and did not see either. Pmed you on Shoptalk as well. Thanks, Andy. Debating on a subi conversion for the bus after all the grades I struggled with, but want to see how well your buddies single cab works with the rear radiator.
