    It’s kicking my ass! Haha I’m just trying to keep up. She’s trying to leave this weekend. Main seal is all sealed up! Have the carbs pretty happy now too. Now a case plug is leaking…. FUCK. Just a couple drops when you shut it off… if I get more time this week I’ll pull the motor again and jb weld over the plug… right by the oil pump in the pass side…. must be under vacuum When it’s running so it only Leaks a bit when you shut it off… always more shit to deal with…

    She got a little cabinet off of Craig’s list that fits well. And best part, we didn’t have to build it! Haha surprised she hasn’t posted a pic of that. WW front door panels show up today too. She’s pretty happy with her bus

    I still get a chuckle that I tried to buy this bus at Ottinger’s 90th party, and I got the; “It’s not for sale” story. Then I hear some chick bought it. I’m glad it’s loved and taken good care of.

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

    It’s been so fun getting this thing ready as well as giving the upgrades she’s deserved since I got her! Finally got some new door panels installed today, I love “working” from home. 😎 here’s a photo dump from the last few days. Dogs also approve of the bus. 1CF077B0-BCDA-4499-B65B-341B7DC1000D6E07B169-EA04-464E-97D4-01FAAD921F693448383E-716C-4CF8-973C-C3BDF8E4747F77CF5FF2-2801-49CC-807B-9F52EC477D5089592605-5285-42DF-8E8F-E2F52967840C4C2D416B-9EB0-4048-BD1D-AD927827EF799A02D176-8D72-424D-83D3-9E93CA3DAAF76DC44575-6DF9-46F9-94FD-30249B047ECF

    Hey Emilee, have you considered getting a WeBoost for your van? It would allow you to travel a little further than where your hotspot might otherwise allow.

    Back together! Leak seems better. Also added a thermostat back in. On my drive to work yesterday it took 25 min of freeway driving to come up to temp… too long pushing cold oil through the motor. Seemed to heat up nicely on the drive home tonight! She’s on her way tomorrow! Going to be a great trip for her.

I definitely might be too careful watching my gauges and listening to the motor, but honestly everything went super well. Head temp stayed around 350, oil temp was right around 180/185. Found a few spots to run, and hopefully today find a cool climbing area called swan falls to stay for a night! I love adventures in my bus! With my pup! 💜
