    What’s up, ya’ll? Split Bus owner, SST vet (X,XI,XII), and freelance journalist here. Wondering if there’ll be a Lin Ottinger Moab tour/campout this year and if so, when. I bet I could get a publication to pay my way out to cover itβ€”I’m currently based in eastern Iowaβ€”and I’d really like to join you guys.

    The Utah bus guys usually have more info on their facebook.

    It’s the Moab car show weekend in April.

    We roll out of GJ Friday sometime and meet up with the crew in Moab. Ottinger’s have been awesome hosts in the past with camping spots, toilets, and a tour with Lin. I have not Heard anything about the activites this year.

    You are more than welcome to join us.

    I am hoping to have it done, it keeps fighting me. Sometimes I wonder if it just wants to go back up on the shelf and chill like it was. I agree it will be cool to have two back on the road, they are putting a lot into this bus. I found a TaxiΒ  light cover for the old 23 Taxi bus, hopefully they want to do that next.

    That road was awesome! Shafer trail may be fun also but need good brakes or plan to drive up it. I may try and go down Thursday depending on the bus.

    I assume those guys are coming lol.

    KCW you guys did an awesome job on Smokey and started this whole event! I hope I will be able to do the same level for the 23 and have it done for the event. Excited to see both on the trail this year. Definitely glad you guys did what you did and started, made great friends out of it that may not have happened.

New cargo and front floors with some primer. New motor. Β Ready for a headliner next week and then windows go in with new rubber and she will be ready to rock! I’m excited to see both Ottinger buses touring around this spring in Moab!

    Looking good Jason. You are way out-doing what we did on that 21.

     

    …That was a fun build for us. Crazy that JJ did it for free, I think we were hoping to do some more work for them. Guess it didn’t work out.

    yeah.. this feels weird to me……Β  Logically speaking, factually speaking, I don’t know of anyone within 4 or 5 thousand miles that has put more busses on the road than KCW, or is more capable..

    Congrats Jason on getting the work out of them…Β  Maybe they are just trying to keep it “In state”..Β  😎

    When they do another bus I am not sure that I will have the skills to fix metal and blend paint. I would like to help if you get the next projectΒ  as I don’t have a killer metal shop like you guys have. We should talk more about this before or at the event as I have been telling him to get the Taxi 23 back on the road. I was lucky on this project to have very minimal body repair otherwise I am sure it would be in your hands.

    Yeah I have no doubt Jason is doing a great job, but does seem kind of off even from an outsiders perspective when JJ did such a kind thing with the 21 window.
