    Hey guys. if I brought my bus up on Sunday will someone be around? ill be taking some days off of work and I will be able to come up to the shop and spend some days working on it. Plans for this spa trip are roughly to have Franz go through the mechanicals and make sure its road trip worthy by Rythyms on the Rio. Maybe raise it up a smidge, and build some sort of bed to make it a camper for the weekend.
    Basically, give the poor girl some much needed love and get her ready for a camping trip….btw what would a ladder run me? thanks guys, see later.

    I believe this would classify as a  Dude Ranch visit or a Spa Day for his VW….Doug, what do you think about hanging at the shops working on your bus?

    thanks again for letting me work at the shop. I had never worked on a car while it was on a lift…..glorious. Due to moving and Job Etc. my bus hasn’t really been driven a lot nor have I worked on it for several years and I had to relearn a lot of the steps for doing things. So thanks for all the help from everyone who was there. Everyone was always very willing to lend a hand or answer a question. definitely a sweet resource for someone who is still learning how to work on their bus. It was a lot of fun working with other people around to, its usually just me, the manual, and the dog in the garage! A guy can learn a lot just from shutting up and listening to the people around him who know what they are talking about.

    Any way, see again shortly, ill shoot a heads up. Thanks again

    Did you still want to meet up Thursday at my house and leave early from Montrose.  If we leave at 5ish that will put us in Lake City for breakfast about 7 and at the campsite around 930.  If you guys come down we’ll go out or just throw a Carne bash at mi casa.

    Ladder looks awesome!!!  Speaking of WREN??  Silverton this weekend? Offroad and vw camping… 😎  Wren must not like road trips or camping.. cause he never does it…. 😎  😎

    Doug… if you want to borrow  a mattress I have one… memory foam, 8″ I think… a little thick, but comfy! and Corporate and I slept on it in my bus for  a couple trips  before I decided it was excessively thick and comfy and bought one that was only 4″ memory foam 😎  Yours to try for free since you are just borrowing the stand too…   If you like it… You can copy it and add more to your bus!!!!

    My friend John Jones once told me women, kids and pets will mess up a mans life…. He told the truth! I have not done much of anything this summer. Ranch has been crazy. Have something every week. One of these days will hang out. We need to start camping in the winter…. Got an awesome deer and elk tag for archery and have been gearing up for that in a couple of weeks. My bus was losing power tonight not sure what’s going on. I might try and call tomorrow. Anyway that ladder is awesome Doug! Its been my favorite new thing on my bus! Franz is the ladder king! Call me if your in Gunnison this summer Doug!
