YEAH! Great bus trips – there’s nothing like ’em.
As soon as you get behind the wheel – instant GOOD mood!
WOW – the Salton Sea area has changed BIG time since the 60s & 70s!
The California and Oregon coasts are PRIME bus tripping!YberParticipantOctober 21, 2019 at 10:14 amPost count: 57

Started on driver side batt tray repairs this morning. Too many pinholes and a 4 inch long rusty gap at the return seam. So out it came, along with the rear fender closing panel.
Welded and dressed a couple small holes in the pass side batt tray.
Back on her feet ready for topside repairs.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterOctober 24, 2019 at 1:49 pmPost count: 5573
