    Yeah, excited to get it there for Sonny and Lin to see it. It has been too long. I was hoping to get all the off road light functional and the house battery but it is looking unlikely for the weekend. That means no diesel heater πŸ₯Ά yet.

    A diesel heater in your bus is a game changer for sure! I just put the bug away for the winter and started driving the bus last week. Push the ON button on my remote from inside the house and instant heat, changes everything no dout about it!

    BBB last minute push, just dropped off the BFG MT. They are a tight fit compared to the Yokohama. 20230106_090748

    Finishing up electrical for winch and aux items. Next is finishing the diesel heater install.

    Hopefully I can get the stereo and seat warmers installed before I leave.

    That is a wrench that is made for the adjuster. Sometimes those adjuster can get sticky. It also has a bottle opener. Congratulations on retirement!

    I keep telling people to call you and get one and have several interested, I am surprised nobody has reach out yet. Thanks Audrey for posting, it has been crazy around here. I am trying to get caught up on customer engines from last year when SEMA got in the way and have them done before spring kicks off.

    Thanks, when I was at the State Capitol with the Salt Lake Off-Road Expo group, representing the VW Camping group to legislators about what we do and supporting public lands, I showed them the bus and they said they may have a spot for me. Ended up it was just after you entered the expo in the main hall in the center. It was cool to represent the VWs in the off road world and apparently it was a huge hit.

    Hell no, I would be an idiot to quit with the end game benefits of Gov’t. Westy is constantly changing business strategy and currently I am going to push the engine building more. It is easier to manage my time with family and getting out camping. I really want to make it as auto pilot as possible, there is plenty of work up here and I don’t need it all. Just a small percentage.
