    I’m getting ready for Buses By the Bridge this weekend, finishing the last things on this monster bus project.

    I spent last night fabricating/fitting a custom jump seat. Ready to paint the frame now, then Doug should be here later to help me cover the wood base.

    Can’t wait to check this one out again in complete status. Nice work Franz!

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Forgot to post these from The Weekend. Franz took us mountain biking! So fun. He rips on a bike. Cool to cruise in his bus too! He even got close with a vanagon. You know what they say… keep your friends close and your enemies closer hahah 3DD7F152-2A27-4C27-8663-231F101FCF20BB4A68A4-D380-4783-BDEB-9A15CEF913361BAD14C5-7BE4-4498-B268-4299BE1453E2FA0A9C33-84F8-4B11-B3A5-E1C3C129C4B1

    Looks like a fun bike ride. This weekend won’t work for camping Franz,  family is just getting over the crud and it’ll be chilly for them.

    “Emilee’s Mobile Welding and Split Bus Recovery Service”

     

    Franz had the adjusters slip/strip on his beam. So we went back later that day with a welder supplied by Sonny and Franz welded that thing up good! The jack we brought wasn’t tall enough so we scavenged some wood and rocks to get it high enough. Super fun little recovery mission.

     

    Super professional. Super clean. Super good welds. Super prepared. As you can tell by the socks used for welding gloves haha! Super fun weekend D3282A66-8E74-44BD-8316-74A8E8F385ED50FACE7D-5EFA-45F8-9E20-F187320F36D0F2D98ECB-C57C-475A-AB7E-4B0028AE5A1EF90A05DD-1975-4464-A339-C9576CB56D3EF80D71B2-726D-4D9A-B86F-10FCFF2A8C3278043F6B-BEB6-49AD-8842-AD34DA205587

    Haha, you guys are funny.

    That sucked, but was not a big deal, I had a good day, and was lucky to have so much help getting fixed.

    Bay windows are working buses for sure. Betty Blue has a great cargo area.

    Franz handled it…  It’s just part of using it… getting things all dialed in…  Mechanical things break….

    Franz always handles it! He had that thing buttoned up and back on the road in no time. And then left me in the dust when he rallied out of there. I’m sure he was just testing his welds haha

    Franz killed it! Made it look so easy, i was glad I joined on that recovery. Was a blast and those are the fun times and the ones you remember the most. Shit breaking and getting stuck = fun don’t ask me why but it is
