We just arrived in elkhart, let the games begin lol, went to bontragers and looked at what they had, then hit one down the road from them, nothing so far, got into elkhart after the stores here closed but resting now and waiting to hear from john and richard, got a good room at a decent price, we're just off I-80 on highway 19 at the Fairway Inn watching tv right now, are we having fun yet? lol

Had a nice visit with John and Tammy they are the next leg of the great window adventure, so far, pauls window started life in elkhart and came north to northern michigan last year with me, they enjoyed the pleasures of a northern michigan winter leaning up against the wall in my daughters garage,  last weekend they got loaded into my truck again and were brought back to elkhart where john loaded them onto his trailer and the next stop is somewhere in texas where they await the next leg of the trip to pauls bus, I'm thinking they should take a ride to seattle and maybe down the coast highway first, seems only right lol.

Cody,
That's quite a trailer John has to carry Paul's windows back on! When John had our little car on there, it didn't squat a bit when he took it off.

No thanks are needed, my friend, it just what busnuts do for each other, thats just the way it's supposed to be done.  I had an old cranky busnut from the east coast explain it to me a long time ago, it was back before the smell of diesel fumes had erroded my brain and killed off the "I donwanna" part of my cerebillum, it's a southern term, a dead cerribellem is an 'anti-bellem lol. (sorry, that was bad, even for me lol)  He told me that the remaining old buses out there are numbered and disappearing on a daily basis and taking their drivers with them, that it's important for us to stand tall and stand firmly together and do what we can for each other, he was a great guy and then he corrected my grammer and my spelling on my reply lol, thanks richard for being who you were lol. I'm just glad that I could help a little.

It's kinda sad when a road trip draws to a close, we're on our way home, right now we're staying over in Gaylord, about 60 miles south of the bridge and around 300 miles left till we get home.  The looting session was light but productive lol, I got the power cord that I had forgotten at trinas when I got my backup camera last trip, and now I can relate fully to the old Johnny Cash tune about the 58,59,60,61 cadillac lol, I got a set of graphics for the bus, it tag says endeavor so I guess now I'll have a H&R Iggle lol, I don't care as long as I can figure out which side or direction the squiggle goes lol, they got a lot of squiggles to try to keep straight, the entire set for both sides and the back only ran me 60 bucks, I thought that was kinda cool, I found a really cool pooper, it was one of those taller than normal versions of a sealand toilet but it was black, hadn't seen a black one before was really cool but trina wanted 385 for it so it'll have to wait for a while, I'll rebuild my old sealand one more time, maybe by the time it needs rebuilding again they'll have them in paisley. lol

Paul,

Bad news, we missed are turn on 80 which put us draging the windows kicking and screeming though the centre of Chicargo. Not to mention the extra $30,00 in tolls cause I missed the exit(how do people afford to live here?).
Cody we visited Trina boy she was in a bad mood, so we went across the road and picked up a new sofa $300,00 installed.
We are now camped in Syncruse,

John

John,

At least they're not dead if their kicking and screaming! ;D

Be safe! Do you wish you were driving on the right side? ;)

We just arrived back home at jamies, was a great run, we enjoyed it and enjoyed meeting new friends. We got a little bit of loot and it'll take the bus to the next level, now if only I could drive it, that would be perfect.

I'm curious where you got the sofa across the road from RV Surplus?  Was Factory RV Surplus actually open for business?  (They have been closed all but one time I have tried to shop there.  I'm not the only one it seems.)

Brian, they were open when we were there, the last time we went thru elkhart a month or so ago, we couldn't catch them open but this time they were.
